In most cases double is better, but the Alfa Romeo MiTo proves in many cases double is simply excellent.
Firstly, there is the new double-clutch TCT transmission. This replaced the Selespeed transmission, which used a single clutch and essentially replaced the need for a left foot.
The new system though, is far more advanced and is perhaps the most defining feature of a fantastically exciting car. The drive is electric, again thanks to the gearbox, which shifts seamlessly between ratios in Normal, Dynamic or All-Weather modes and kick-down is instantaneous.
