Alfa Romeo Giulietta Gets Released

Alfa Romeo is one of the most appreciated Italian car manufacturers; the company was established in 1910 in Milan, and almost instantly started manufacturing racing cars. Although today it is owned by Fiat, the brand has kept its characteristics, and fans can still find what first attracted them to it. This year Alfa Romeo hits the market with a few more new cars, among which our subject for today, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

To begin with, this car looks spectacular; although it is a  simple four-door sedan, the exterior design of the Giulietta is quite appealing. The car has very curvy lines all around, and a very aerodynamic structure; the front end is much lower than the back, which further amplifies its speed; other than that, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a pretty recognizable vehicle, something many drivers will appreciate. As for performance, this is where the car gets truly impressive; not only will you have the option to choose between various engines, but all of them are turbocharged and ready for an impressive performance.

Thus, one of the engines which you can opt for on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a 1.4 liter which can produce 118 horsepower, or 168 horsepower on slightly different options. A better version comes with a 1.7 liter engine producing 231 horsepower, and all these three engines work on petrol. If you are a diesel fan, you can opt for the 1.6 liter engine with 103 bhp output, or a 2.0 liter engine with two variants: for 138 bhp and for 168 bhp. Luckily, we’re here to tell you that you can get just as much fun from the 1.6 liter engine, so you needn’t spend extra unless you really want and need it.

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta also features three driving modes, but car tests have shown here is where the car actually lacks. Steering is not as accurate and easy as it could be, and the Dynamic mode is in no way recommended for inner city trips because the car becomes too sensitive to commands. As for the interior, we’ve found some faults there as well; for example, the pedals are inexplicably all at different heights, so it makes it more difficult for the driver to control the car until they get used to this quirk. The seats don’t seem to be too comfortable either for the driver or the passengers, and the steering wheel is positioned too high; space inside the car and trunk are not that impressive either, but it’s enough for a normal family of four or less. All in all, the Giulietta is a pretty normal car without impressive features, but it is a reliable and well-performing car at reasonable prices.
