Alfa Romeo Giulietta

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is the best looking car in its class, the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf are undoubtedly better cars if you listen to your head, but the Giulietta pulls at your heart, well finished details like the eye-catching front and rear LED lights and hidden door handles help it stand out from whichever angle you look at it, so if you want to turn heads and don’t mind putting up with the quirks of Alfa Romeo ownership then the Giulietta is for you. The Giulietta is great to drive and all the engines are powerful and frugal, the competition just have the edge on ergonomics, the offset pedals can make for long journey ache and space for rear passengers is tight.

 

The Giulietta is available in base trim, Super, Sprint and Speciale. Super cars have dual zone automatic climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors and front fog lights. The Sporty Speciale has 18 inch Alloys, red Brembo brake callipers, flat-bottomed sports leather steering wheel with red stitching and firmer suspension. The Sprint is the pick with 18 inch diamond cut alloy wheels, Red brake calipers, Leather and alcantara sports seats, 6.5” touchscreen infotainment system with navigation & DAB radio, Dual zone climate control, Cruise control, Front and rear parking sensors, Front fog lights, Privacy glass, Aluminium sports pedals, Darkened interior headlining, Red stitching on steering wheel, gear knob and hand brake and Side skirts.

 

Alfa Romeo have a justified reputation for building excellent engines, the 1.4 litre petrol with 120 bhp (suitable for under 25’s) can propel the Giulietta to 62 mph in 9.4 seconds and on to 121 miles per hour but the economy is not class leading at 45.6 miles per gallon The diesel offering is the 118bhp 1.6 litre, but we feel the Giulietta suits the (much cheaper) petrol engine.

The Giulietta is a beautiful car to look at but is by no means the best value car on the scheme, but sometimes you just have to let your heart rule your head.
