The Giulietta, the five-door hatchback from Alfa Romeo, delivers all the traditional style and flair of an Alfa with the usefulness of a modern hatchback.
This sporty and dynamic 5 door hatchback is built to be eye-catching with an elegant front-end set off with LED daytime running lights and the off-centre numberplate that's become an Alfa Romeo signature. Its confident presence, bestowed by a look that could only come from Milan, draws its design inspiration from the 8C Competizione as well as other models from a century of automotive excellence.
Despite its internal roominess, the Alfa Romeo Guilietta seems compact, an illusion conferred by the rear passenger door handles being set into the window frame. This clever styling, along with its shapely, red tail-lamp LEDs, gives it a distinctive class that's rare in larger vehicles like this.
Form and function combine, with the Alfa Romeo badge at the rear acting as the boot release.
But it's not just just the exterior that's fluid and elegant - the interior features a silver dashboard which complements the optional red or tan leather upholstery. Choose the optional, full-length glass sunroof to bring the sunlight in.
Alfa Romeo’s are known for combining exceptional driving dynamics with advanced technology and the new Giulietta in no exception. Alfa D.N.A. is the exclusive Alfa Romeo Driving selector that adjusts the engine, brakes, steering, suspension and gearbox depending on the driving mode (Dynamic, Normal or All-Weather) chosen by the driver.
Included as standard, the innovative Uconnect™ system brings a top quality sound system with a raft of multimedia services and functions. All controlled through the 5” colour touchscreen or voice recognition. Add state-of-the-art navigation technology with the optional 6.5” Uconnect™ system.
Each of the engines available with the Giulietta is turbocharged and capable of producing ample power. These engines, more than being just powerful, are super-efficient; the entry-level 1.4-litre TBi produces just 118bhp but is able to use this to produce a top speed of 121mph and 0-60 in just over 9 seconds. This efficiency means low running costs and low CO2 emissions. The diesel options maintain their power yet are highly frugal: the 2.0-litre JTDm can reach 135mph and 0-60 in around 8.8 seconds, all from 168bp.
The Giulietta has been awarded five stars from EuroNCAP thanks to its strong structure, a whole host of Electronic driver assists, and a minimum of six airbags across the range. Added features such as ISOFIX fittings for child seats in the rear, traction control, and Hill Hold take the Giulietta above and beyond what it needs, providing added peace of mind for driver and passengers.
