Mighty MiTo breathes new life into Alfa dealership
Mangoletsi, based near Knutsford, has sold an astonishing 500 MiTos since they were launched in the UK last January.
“It’s an amazing figure,” said Mangoletsi managing director Fraser Hudson. “We usually sell between 300 and 400 new vehicles in total every year so to sell more MiTos than the rest of our models combined goes to show how popular it has been,The results are even better when you consider that the car industry is supposed to be in crisis. It has kept us strong at a time when many other dealers have been struggling.”
Mangoletsi, in London Road, is the UK’s largest and longest established Alfa Romeo dealership. Mr Hudson expects the MiTo’s success to continue in 2010 as the all new Multiair Engines will be fitted to the Alfa MiTo range from February this year.
The new revolutionary Multiair engines offer lower emissions and lower fuel consumption, but higher performance and greater driving pleasure.
He added: “We are seeing a trend of people switching to cars with smaller engines, largely due to fuel costs. That should work in the MiTo’s favour. It’s a compact sports car so has fantastic appeal, but it’s also affordable to run and reasonably priced.
“It seems to be ticking all the boxes at the moment and steering new customers towards the Alfa Romeo brand.” For more information on Mangoletsi call 01565 722 899 or visit www.mangoletsi.com
