The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta has just been unveiled simultaneously in five locations across Europe, with the main event taking place in the Alfa Romeo Museum, Arese. The new car features revised front-end styling that includes a striking new honeycomb grille, piano black bumper inserts (with red highlights on sporty models) and revised headlamp and fog lamp surrounds.

It is further complemented by new badge designs (both the “Alfa Romeo” and “Giulietta” logos), new alloy wheel designs, revised tail pipes, new colours (Alfa White and Lipari Grey) and a new engine and transmission combination.

This points to the second-generation 1.6-litre JTDM-2 turbo diesel engine that produces 120hp at 3,750rpm and an impressive 320Nm of torque from just 1,7450rpm. when paired with Alfa Romeo’s quick-shifting TCT transmission, it can be used as a full automatic (with its responsiveness and shift patterns adjusted via the three-mode Alfa DNA drive selector, along with the power steering assistance, ESC and Q2 electronic differential settings and throttle and brake responsiveness) or as a full manual, either by slotting the gear selector into its sequential gate or by using the steering wheel paddle shifters.

This engine and transmission combination has a top speed of 195km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 10.2 seconds, while its official combined cycle fuel-economy and emissions figures matches those of the manual version, returning 3.8 l/100 km and producing just 99 g/km of CO2.

Inside the new Giulietta there are revised seat upholsteries, dashboard and door panel finishes, a Uconnect infotainment system now with smartphone-enabled LIVE services (music streaming with Deezer and TuneIn, news with Reuters, Facebook Check-In and Twitter, plus eco:Drive and my:Car services and traffic updates for navigation-equipped models).

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.

Finally, the new Giulietta Veloce tops the revised line-up and in terms of equipment is graced with stylish new 18-inch alloy rims, specific sports suspension tuning, oversized tailpipes and, of course, the most powerful engine in the Giulietta range – the 240hp 1750 turbo petrol engine combined with a specially calibrated TCT transmission.
