Evo damns MiTo Cloverleaf with faint praise

It's not a magazine that praises form and function over acceleration, so this is a fairly predictable - but honest - review.

Alfa Romeo MiTo Cloverleaf review | evo
It’s the best Mito we’ve driven. Damned by faint praise, then? Well, it’s not a hardcore charger in the mould of the Clio 200, but instead trades outright driver appeal for a good measure of refinement and ride comfort. It strikes a good balance in this regard – even on Highland roads ripped apart by winter frosts, the ride never became crashy, the dampers never clobbered their bump stops, something that simply isn’t true of the standard Mito.
