Most remarkable, however, is Alfa’s continuing determination to squeeze maximum power from each cubic centimetre of engine cylinder volume. Each of the three four-cylinder Giulietta engines is turbocharged, but even so the kW output is huge. And the automaker has forestalled many potential buyers’ worries about high revs and turbines with extended factory guarantee periods and long service contracts (see end of text).
THREE SISTERS: These images are of the 1.4 Giulietta Multiair but its sisters in speed share the good-looking Compact shell. A six-speed auto is standard but an auto box is to follow.
FINDING THE WAY IN THE WAY: Alfa will bolt a TomTom satnav system to your new Giulietta - if you realy want such a lump in your eye. It's portable, though.
