The Giulietta is probably the best selling Alfa Romeo in recent times. The name Giulietta is a tribute to an automobile and an Alfa Romeo legend. In the Fifties, the 1954 Giulietta caught the imagination of car enthusiasts throughout the world, making the dream of owning an Alfa Romeo and enjoying its high level of comfort and technical excellence accessible for the first time. Years on, Alfa Romeo has released an updated version of the modern Giulietta.

The new changes begin at the front with the new look grille and the chrome-plated frame of the fog lights. The 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta front headlights have DRL with LED technology and a day light function for maximum active safety. The innovative rear lights use LED technology in the same way, which serves not only a stylish purpose but also preventive safety. Finally, the three new alloy wheels (16-, 17- and 18-inches) clearly highlight the profile of the 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The side windows recall the appearance of a coupe and emphasise the dynamism and fluidity of the profile, which is further enhanced by the concealed rear door handles. The ribs on the vehicle sides elongate the car while the clean lines, which end at the rear, accentuate the angular shape of the car body.
New to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is the 150hp/111kW 2.0 JTDM power unit. Using a small-sized turbocharger means delivering the highest torque in the segment at low rpm (380 Nm at 1750 rpm) and maximum running flexibility. All the engines are combined with a state-of-the-art manual 6-speed gearbox, which can withstand and transmit high maximum torque values.
Attention to detail and high quality materials chosen to represent the ultimate expression of Italian style. What particularly stand out are new door panels, handles and the brand new insert on the central console and dashboard. All elements are treated with uniform scratch-proof paint and the trims are homogeneous in colour and materials. The result is a superior quality environment that welcomes passengers into a warm and enveloping atmosphere. The seats and steering wheel are new, too, and further highlight the perceived quality and on-board comfort. The luggage compartment has been renewed with a specific black trim for the entire volume. The storage compartment on the left of the steering wheel, the upper glove compartment on the dashboard and the USB port are placed close to the DNA selector. Alfa Romeo DNA selector which allows driver to choose between three different driving settings: Dynamic, Normal and All-Weather, this setting controls the behaviour of engine, brakes, steering, suspension and gearbox.
No question, the Giulietta is a better class of Alfa, and vastly more convincing than most of its rivals. The Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s competitiveness stems from the excellence of a platform that delivers on chassis dynamics, packaging and safety. If you want to experience the Alfa Romeo charm but you don’t have plenty to spend on a classic then I suggest you try the hot 2014 Giulietta.
