Alfa Romeo Junior - The "other" Mini

Alfa Romeo unveiled recently the Junior. That's a name associated with classic cars, because for 20 years the Junior was the synonym of a small sports car, yet fun to drive (I have had the honour of trying one and it's one of the best drives I've ever tested). Due to the old Italian taxation system, these cars could be equipped with a 1.3 l engine which, if the driver behaved and didn't push the accelerator too much, could get very good mileages.

Now, the Junior is back with an aggressive style (not the old coupé) and a set of powertrains ranging from 95 to 200 HP. As you have guessed, the model plants itself as one (more) competitor to the Mini. Alfa Romero will also install Fiat's range of diesels, which with only 1.3 l are good up to 120 HP.
