Alfa Romeo celebrates their centenary with an all new Alfa Romeo Giulietta which goes on sale in the UK next month. This new model sits on an all new Compact platform; the result is a model that combines impeccable safety credentials, Italian style, comfort and functionality with the dynamic qualities taken for granted in Alfa Romeos.
All Alfa Romeo Giuliettas will feature a barrage of sophisticated electronic safety systems. These include Alfa DNA (which allows drivers to customise the car's handling characteristics to suit their own preferences and/or prevailing road conditions), VDC (vehicle dynamic control), DST (dynamic steering torque) and an electronic differential. There will also be a spacious luggage area with a 350 litre boot capacity.
There is a range of five new engines, three petrol and two diesel all of which are turbocharged and Euro 5 emissions-compliant. This gives the Alfa Romeo Giulietta further flexibility and makes it best in class for emissions, acceleration and fuel consumption. Even the smallest capacity, a 1.4-litre, has a lusty 120bhp. The new 1.4-litre TB MultiAir 170bhp offers the lowest emissions and fuel consumption in its class for petrol engines of this power rating.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s styling cues owe more to its stylish Fifties antecedent and Alfa Romeo promises a car that blends everyday comfort with a sporting manner.
