Due to go on sale in the UK from May, Alfa is showing off the top performing Quadrifoglio Verde model, which offers 235bhp from its turbocharged 1.8-litre engine. Therell also be a 1.4-litre MultiAir and JTDM turbodiesel available when the car goes on sale for real, all fitted with either a six-speed manual or dual-clutch automatic gearbox. All engines are fitted with the Fiat Groups stop-start technology to improve emissions.
Based on the new Bravo platform, Alfa believes the Giulietta offers road holding and handling dynamics to match the best available in a competitive class. And even though its compact, a poke around inside reveales a platform with plenty of room for occupants and an impressive 350 litres of boot space.
The interior quality often a problem for Alfa - seems a stylishly fitted cut above the competition too. If they get the pricing right, the Giulietta will be one to watch out for when it goes on sale in May.
