just missed

Al­most there, but no cigar for these lit­tle dar­lings of the latte set

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Cover Story -

Alfa Romeo Mito

from $29,990 The 114kW 1.4 is a sweet en­gine, but the Mito is an over­priced Fiat Punto shop­ping trol­ley. The semi-au­to­matic TCT trans­mis­sion is aw­ful.

Fiat 500

from $24,990 Big in Europe but ig­nored here be­cause we still equate Fiat with jokes about rust. A qual­ity piece, though, and you feel happy driv­ing it.

Mini Cooper

from $31,650 Su­perb han­dling and the sharpest steer­ing this side of a go-kart. But it’s over­priced and un­com­fort­able. Back seat and boot are use­less.
