The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a new model from the 100 year old Italian car manufacturer. This new model replaces the 147 hatchback and come only as a five door hatchback. The new Giulietta is much bigger than the 147 model offering a generous 350 litre boot size and a comfortable back seat area.
The Giulietta features a map navigator integrated with TMC Pro and provides real time information on traffic. The new navigator is positioned in the upper side of the central dashboard allowing the driver to see the itinerary while maintaining concentration on the road. The system also includes a fuel efficiency function that gives feedback on how to save on fuel and reduce carbon emissions.
There is much use of high strength aluminium in the new suspension which makes for a very comfortable driving experience. The lightweight steel platform is used to obtain an enhanced driving experience. For the Giuliletta, Alfa Romeo has placed the motor for the electric power steering on the steering rack instead of on the column. This again helps with steering precision.
The car comes in 1.4 litre and 1.8 litre petrol engines and 1.6 litre and 2.0 litre for higher powered diesel engines. Prices start at £18,000.
