New Alfa Romeo Giulietta

New Alfa Romeo Giulietta

An Alfa Romeo with a dash of sensible practicality, the Giulietta means families don’t have to compromise on style. It may be the range’s only hatchback, but that doesn’t mean it lacks any of Alfa Romeo’s suave design.

Anyone can be forgiven for mistaking the Guiletta for a three-door car. Rear door handles are cleverly integrated into the window surround giving it the chic look of a sporty supermini. This close attention to detail is littered across the Guiletta’s exterior. A choice of striking patterns in the alloy wheels means you can customise the exterior to suit your personality.  A honeycomb pattern in the grille brings finesse, while the chrome plated tailpipes and carbon effect of the headlights give it a sporty makeover. 

With the classic inverted triangle shaped grille and smoothly curved bonnet, it has Alfa Romeo’s distinctive looks. A rear spoiler at the tip of the boot and a softened boot lip are extra giveaways of its sporting roots. Opt for the Speciale or Veloce trim levels for red Brembo brake callipers.

Alfa Romeo Giulietta Test Drive Review

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is one of the prettiest hatchbacks on the road today, but is it any good? We put it to the test to find out.


What is it?

Alfa Romeo put the Giulietta under the knife earlier this year, updating the hatch’s already rather pretty face in the process. A new honeycomb grille features prominently on the car’s nose, while piano black bumper inserts and revised headlamps have also been introduced.


Under the bonnet

Under the hood, the Italian manufacturer’s 118bhp 1.6-litre JTDM-2 diesel engine can now be paired with its six-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission. However, while our test car featured this engine, we had to make do with the standard six-speed manual – which is by no means a complaint.

What's it like to drive?

This is where the Alfa starts to make sense. The 1.6-litre, 118bhp diesel engine on our test car felt like it had a fair bit more tug than its numbers suggested, and through the corners the Alfa’s nicely weighted steering made the car a fun car to pilot. It doesn’t roll too badly either, and Alfa’s D.N.A drive mode switch (which lets you choose between Dynamic, Natural, and All-weather driving modes) is fun to play with, if a little gimmicky.

Take the Giulietta away from twisting country roads and plonk it on a motorway and you’ll find it copes relatively well. The cabin is fairly insulated from wind and road noise, and the car doesn’t feel too nervous or twitchy at higher speeds.

However, there are a couple of flies in the Alfa Romeo’s ointment. The pedals are really quite close together, and the seats aren’t hugely comfortable – making for a slightly awkward driving position. The biggest issue, though, is the cars steering wheel.

How does it look?

The Giulietta has always been quite the looker, and Alfa’s most recent updates only serve to maintain this. The aforementioned new grille design and black inserts on the bumper have been introduced by Alfa to emphasise the car’s close ties to its new Giulia saloon – which is arguably one of the best-looking cars to go on sale this year.

Unfortunately though, that attractive face hides an interior that is largely dull and now starting to feel quite tired as well. However, the touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system that is fitted as standard across the Giulietta range is one of the cabin’s few redeeming features.

However, while the Giulietta’s interior may be a bit of a let-down when you compare it to the car’s exterior, at the end of the day you will still be driving around in an Alfa Romeo. The Alfa badge has always adorned something that is a bit special, and on the Giulietta this is no exception.

What's it like inside?

Even though the Giulietta might look like a three-door coupe thanks to hidden rear door handles – a classic Alfa styling cue – this is in-fact a five-door car. However, you shouldn’t let that fool you into thinking there are bags of space in the back.

That dramatic roofline does cut into rear headroom somewhat, and legroom isn’t as abundant as you think it might be from a family hatch. As a result, adults might find the Giulietta a slightly uncomfortable car to sit in on longer journeys – although children should be more than catered for. Isofix mounting points also help to accommodate child booster seats.

When it comes to boot space, the Giulietta is rather middle-of-the-road. With 350 litres worth of capacity on offer, the Alfa comes with more storage room than a Ford Focus’ 316-litre boot can offer, but less than a Volkswagen Golf’s 380-litre boot. However, if you fold the rear seats down you will increase the Giulietta’s capacity to 1,045 litres.

​What's the spec like?

All Giuliettas come with a fairly good level of standard equipment, too, which helps to justify the slightly expensive £18,700 price tag for the most basic car. Standard kit on the entry-level Giulietta includes 16-inch alloys, a Uconnect infotainment system with a five-inch touchscreen, DAB radio, Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity and LIVE services for internet access. LIVE services are smartphone enabled, and carry features such as music streaming from Deezer and TuneIn, Facebook check-in and Twitter connectivity.


Verdict

The Giulietta will appeal to anyone who is in the market for a family hatch that is both good looking and slightly left-field. Even though this car does have its many foibles, it is still entirely likeable, and rather fun to drive. With the right engine, it’s pretty economical, too.
