Beautiful design, very efficient petrol engine and quick in all models.Disadvantages:
Cloverleaf version is uninspiring compared to other versions, diesel engines not as good those of its rivals’, sat nav is poor. Summary:
The New Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a beautiful looking car and impressive engine, however it is let down by some minor irritations.(2) AutoeBid customer ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA Reviews:08-August-2012 New ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA Deals(1.4 TB MultiAir Veloce 5d TCT)“
I'd give thsi 5* rating. I love it. Goes like a bomb when in Dynamic mode. Also took the Tom Tom SatNav with it whichi is fantastic. Start-Stop took a while to get used to. I went for white colour, which does attract the dirt but in my opinion the Giulietta looks best in this colour.”08-October-2011 New ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA Deals(1.4 TB MultiAir Lusso 5d)“
Great, a real driver's car. Multiair is quite quick. Adjusting between the responsiveness of normal and dynamic takes a bit of getting used to. ”New ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA Review:
The New Alfa Romeo Giulietta marries together Alfa Romeo passion and good looks with efficiency and green technology.
However, the new sensible ethos goes a way to dampen some of the fun and excitement typically associated with Alfas. Although the Start stop technology and long gearing ratios found in the New Alfa Romeo Giulietta show that Alfa is serious about its eco credentials, it does restrict the full potential and fun of the engine, which is fully exploited in the New Alfa Romeo Giulietta's smaller counterpart, the Mito. The long gearing ratio makes it practically impossible to move off in anything but first and requiring more gear changes than one might prefer. And although the Start stop technology improves the New Alfas efficiency and eco credentials, it does have some minor drawbacks, such as not allowing the engine to restart if you undo your seatbelt. These mild irritations however are soon accustomed to and are a small sacrifice to pay for the otherwise impressively smooth ride you achieve once you get going.
The 1.7 Cloverleaf version doesn't seem to quite live up to its 232bhp, 0-62mph in 6.8 seconds credentials, and the styling is somewhat lacking that outrageous Alfa flair. The strange quirk of the hazard lights coming on under hard breaking also adds to the New Alfa Romeo Giulietta's sensible character. Alfa's DNA system, with its 'Dynamic', 'Normal' and 'All Weather' modes, which has shown its flaws in previous models remains the same in the New Alfa Romeo Giulietta. However, overall the Cloverleaf is a quick road-focused car, delivering a rewarding drive, with the electronic differential and Dynamic setting making the car settled and responsive through tight and quick corners.
Although the New Alfa Romeo Giulietta is let down by some minor irritations, Alfa’s latest hatchback is a beautiful looking car with an impressive engine, seeing Alfa brining a sensible ethos to its otherwise passionate, eccentric character.
