Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde
With a 1.4 MultiAir turbo-charged engine, the Alfa Romeo MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde (QV) version is surely a head-turner. After all, it boosts 170 horses in its extremely small frame. The super-mini car will surely remind anyone of the likes of the Cooper S or even the Honda Civic of the 90s where it is hard to determine if the car is muscle, metrosexual or even feminine to some.
Given the Cloverleaf treatment, the MiTo comes with the DNA driving mode which stands for Dynamic, Normal and All-weather. Driving in Normal mode is the default while Dynamic speeds up and increases the acceleration process. In fact, in this mode, the exhaust is a lot more efficient, which is louder while the All-Weather mode helps you to drive in extreme weather conditions but displaying the information of the outside on the panel.
In terms of acceleration, this car is able to hit the century mark in merely 7.5 seconds which is considered extremely fast for a small car like the MiTo. If it is comfort you are looking for, the MiTo QV might not be the ideal choice as it is made for performance. It comes with bucket seats, 18 inch allow wheels and with the Dynamic driving mode that pushes you backwards as you step on the gas, it will surely make heads turn as mentioned.
The 5-leaf clover emblem has a reputation to keep and which has the bar raised so high, it might be unreachable to some but ultimately this performance car is very much like its other trims, holding out on its own in the category of super-mini cars.
