2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta with revised styling and specs

 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta The much-anticipated, new Alfa Romeo Giulietta has started to roll out to dealerships in the U.K. The 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta features a revised styling, enhanced specification, new technology, a simplified range structure and a new engine and transmission combination.

The new front-end styling comprises a striking new honeycomb grille, piano black bumper inserts (with red highlights on sporty models) and revised headlight and fog light surrounds. The new look is complemented by new Alfa Romeo and Giulietta badge designs, new alloy wheels, revised tail pipes and new colors (Alfa White and Lipari Grey), while the interior benefits from revised seat upholsteries and dashboard/door panel finishes, a new trip computer display and a Uconnect infotainment system now with smartphone-enabled LIVE services including music streaming.

Under the bonnet there’s now the option of combining the 120hp 1.6-liter JTDM-2turbo diesel engine with the ALFA TCT twin dry-clutch transmission. Employing second-generation MultiJet technology with a variable-geometry turbo charger, this engine produces 120 hp at 3,750 rpm and an impressive 320 Nm of torque from just 1,7450 rpm and, when paired with Alfa Romeo’s quick-shifting and smooth ALFA TCT transmission, it can be used as a full automatic (with its responsiveness and shift patterns adjusted via the three-mode Alfa D.N.A. 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 dear selector into its sequential gate or by using the standard steering wheel paddle shifters.

This engine and transmission combination has a top speed of 195 km/h (121mph) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/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.

The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta’s model range features five trim levels: base Giulietta, Giulietta Super, Giulietta Tecnica, Giulietta Speciale and Giulietta Veloce. The range is accompanied by a comprehensive standard equipment list which includes a leather steering wheel with audio remote controls, air conditioning, five-inch Uconnect LIVE with DAB plus USB and Bluetooth connectivity, luxury floor mats, Alfa D.N.A. selector, six airbags, 16-inch ‘Turbine’ alloy wheels, electric windows all round (one-touch in the front) and steering-wheel paddle shifters on TCT-equipped models. The engines available are: 120hp 1.4-liter Turbo Petrol and 120hp 1.6-liter JTDM-2turbo diesel, 120hp (manual or ALFA TCT), 150hp 1.4-liter Turbo Petrol and 150hp 2.0-liter JTDM-2turbo diesel.
