Alfa Romeo has announced that it's purty-lookin' MiTo hatch is coming our way, and will be on sale in Australia from July.

Pricing and exact specifications of the Australia-bound cars have yet to be revealed, but we do know that we'll get the two most powerful engines on offer - an 88kW and a 114kW turbocharged 1.4 litre petrol four to be precise - and the cars will be available in two trim levels, one more sporty than the other.

Appropriate given its sporting pretensions, a six-speed manual gearbox will be the only transmission available, while an electronic pseudo-LSD will enhance traction.

"The MiTo is enormously important to Alfa Romeo as it takes us into a whole new market sector," said Edward Butler, General Manager for Alfa Romeo in Australia.

"It is focused totally on being a performance and style driven mini-Coupe, not compromised by things like having to have a five door version."

Alfa's DNA system will also be standard fitment, and will allow the driver to switch between Dynamic, Normal and All-Weather settings. The system changes throttle mapping, brake response, steering feel and suspension characteristics, and is a fairly unique feature on a car of this size.

Pricing and full details of the Alfa Romeo MiTo will be revealed in July, so stay tuned for more.
