Alfa Romeo has unveiled the revised Giulietta C-segment hatchback which goes on sale on April 1 in the UK, priced from £18,450.
Following its extensive revision in 2014, Giulietta has now had further changes, including revised front end styling and headlamps, a Uconnect infotainment system with smartphone-enabled online services, and a new engine and transmission option which Alfa expects to be popular with UK buyers.
That combination is a 119bhp 1.6-litre JTDM-2 turbodiesel with the Alfa TCT twin clutch auto transmission, which has official efficiency figures of 74.3mpg and 99g/km CO2 coupled with 10.2 second 0-62mph performance.
Also debuting on the new Giulietta is Alfa Performance, a new service specifically created to enhance the driving experience. Using an array of digital gauges and instruments, drivers can control the main parameters of the car, measure their performance using special timers and see driving statistics on their smartphone, in addition to receiving real-time driving tips. The service is available on the upgraded Uconnect 6.5” Radio Nav LIVE.
In the UK, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s model range features five trim levels: Giulietta, Giulietta Super, Giulietta Tecnica, Giulietta Speciale and Giulietta Veloce.
A new Lusso pack can be added to the Super model to enhance the look of the car and includes leather upholstery, front and rear armrests (with third rear headrest), aluminium kick plates and the 6.5-inch Uconnect LIVE system with voice-operated satellite navigation and 3D mapping.
Giulietta Tecnica replaces the Business Edition and includes the 6.5-inch Uconnect infotainment system with navigation, automatic lights and wipers, electro-chromatic rear view mirror, front and rear parking sensors, new 16-inch wheels, side skirts and rear privacy glass.
