The Alfa Romeo Giulietta retains the firm's famous sporting credentials while offering a stylish hatchback and great engines. The car also offers excellent performance and a very comfortable cabin.
There's a choice of models in what is the carmaker's best attempt for years in producing a family hatchback along with a good choice of equipment. The engines include a 2.0 litre diesel, a 1.4 litre turbo petrol and 1.7 litre petrol which have decent performance and are reasonably economic; the 1.6 litre diesel is the most efficient, returning 64mpg. The 1.4 litre petrol version will return around 44mpg while the 1.6litre diesel returns 74mpg.
The handling is dynamic and responsive - it's certainly better than many of its rivals - the suspension is also very good and soft enough for the UK's roads to create a very pleasant driving experience. With an historic sporting heritage going before it, everything made by Alfa Romeo is closely scrutinised to ensure it is staying true to its roots and that's the case with the Giulietta; whilst the driving ability is pure Alfa; it's fun and responsive and a class apart from other family hatchbacks, the Giulietta offers something different.
The list of standard equipment on the Giulietta is quite impressive and includes alloy wheels, air con, Bluetooth connectivity and DAB radio. Other models come with cruise control, rear parking sensors and dual zone climate control.
The hatchback is also a safe car; it has five stars from Euro NCAP for crash testing and has six airbags and electronic stability control.
Essentially, there's no doubt that the Giulietta has been well-designed, it has eye-catching looks and it's also been fitted with some excellent engines. In addition, the interior is not only stylish and well laid out but it's also quite spacious. Drivers should also appreciate that reliability, an issue that has dogged the brand for years, has been vastly improved.
