Alfa-Romeo Giulietta

Alfa-Romeo Giulietta

  The Giulietta was a classic model from the 1950s and is Alfa Romeo's compact hatch successor to Alfa Romeo’s 147. The modern Giulietta is styled after the 8C Competizione super car with its trilobe shape and modern inverted triangle grill flanked on either side by a pair of oversized air intakes. Available in both gasoline and diesel configurations, the top of the line Giulietta will be the Quadrifoglio Verde 1750 TBi producing 235 HP.


Alfa Romeo’s new Giulietta will enter the race track as a Safety Car at the Superbike World Championship, scheduled on May 22-23, 2010. The Safety Car will come with a Rosso Competizione exterior paint job which will be the only one available considering the Rosso Competizione was removed from the catalog due to issues with the supplier. The red color will be obtainable again next November when it becomes a part of the color lineup again.

The Giulietta Safety Car will be powered by a 1.75-liter TBi petrol engine that develops a total of 235 HP. The car will be distinguished by a special front spoiler and side sills which will be available to order from the Lineaccessori catalog, and, of course, the Safety car logo on the doors.

This model will also be used as a Safety Car in competitions like the Superstock 600 European Championship, the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup, and the Mondiale Supersport.

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta began its run as a safety car when it made a few laps around the Monza alongside the 8C Competizione, the halo car for Alfa Romeo .


Even if Alfa Romeo will return to the US market, the Italian company announced the newest addition to the line-up - Giulietta - will not. The dangling carrot that was the Giulietta has been held in front of our nose for a little while now and now has been yanked away with no apparent substitution readily available. The announcement has been made by Richard Gadeselli, vice president of communications for Fiat Group Automobiles SpA: "There are no plans at present to export the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Alfa Romeo Giulietta to the North American market." So, what does this mean? Will the Giulietta never make it to US or is this decision only for the time being?

Considering the company has said the cars will be sold in "all the major markets," we still have hopes to get the Giulietta here at some point. It may not be until far in the future, but we’re still hoping. Maybe there is a chance to chomp on the carrot after all.

On the European market, the Giulietta will be offered with a choice of two gas burning engines. The first is the 1.4TB making 120 HP and the 1.4TB MultiAir that cranks out a total of 170 HP. There will also be two alternatively fueled diesel engines; the 1.6 JTDM pumping out 105 HP and the 2.0 JTDM that produces 170 HP, both belonging to FIAT’s second generation JTDM, turbo diesel engines. The top of the line Giulietta will be the 1750 TBi that develops a maximum output of 235 HP and will come with Alfa’s racy Quadrifoglio Verde trim package.

Even if all eyes are on the new cars being unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo has decided that this would be the perfect moment to offer consumers a preview of the future Giulietta compact hatch. The vehicle is currently set to be officially revealed in 2010 at the Geneva Motor Show, but we think Alfa Romeo may have seen a little bit of opportunity emerge. Most expected for the 147’s successor to be called the Milano, however Alfa decided to bring back a name from the fifties: "The Giulietta is a car that, in the fifties, caught the imagination of generations of car enthusiasts, making the dream of owning an Alfa Romeo and enjoying the high level of comfort and technical excellence accessible for the first time."

The Giulietta speaks the same design language as the 8C Competizione super car with its trilobe shape and modern take on the classic inverted triangle classic Alfa grill set front and center in the front bumper and flanked on either side by a pair of oversized air intakes. When it goes on sale in the spring of 2010, the Giulietta will be offered with a choice of two gas burning engines. The first is the 1.4TB making 120 HP and the 1.4TB MultiAir that cranks out a total of 170 HP. There will also be two alternatively fueled diesel engines, the 1.6 JTDM pumping out 105 HP and the 2.0 JTDM that makes 170 HP, both belonging to FIAT’s second generation JTDM, turbo diesel engines. The top of the line Giulietta will be the 1750 TBi that develops a maximum output of 235 HP and will come with Alfa’s racy Quadrifoglio Verde trim package.

Alfa Romeo ’s new Giulietta has become quite a conversation-starter since it debuted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show and the Italian manufacturer is quick to capitalize on this buzz by releasing a promo video for the new premium hatchback.

The two-and-something-minute video highlights the Giulietta’s ancestry while also looking at the high-end technological capabilities of the new model. It’s the perfect way to get to know the Giulietta’s present make while also understanding the rich history it has as one of Alfa Romeo’s most successful models.

The new Giulietta – it’s quite a handful to spell, to be honest – comes with a number of powertrain options ranging from a 1.6-liter diesel that produces 105 horsepower to a more powerful 1.7-liter turbocharged petrol engine with an output of 235 horsepower.

It’s no secret that when Alfa Romeo releases a new model, you can be certain that a GTA version will follow suit. So it didn’t really catch us by surprise when certain birds began singing about a GTA version for the newly launched Giulietta .

According to AutoCar, the future Giuliette GTA - or probably Cloverleaf - will be a FWD model powered by a 1750 TBi turbocharged petrol engine with Multiair that will deliver a total of 235 hp. The engine will also be mated to a new dual-clutch gearbox and will come with a new suspensions and a new braking system, in addition to some form of exterior changes

There are also reports coming out that the Giulietta GTA could be unveiled sooner than we though with April being the date that is being thrown around quite often.

Pouncing on the snowy roads of Arjeplog, Sweden, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta sure looks to like its ready for its worldwide debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The Giulietta, which will succeed the out-dates 147 hatchback, figures to play a prominent role in Alfa Romeo’s attempt at infiltrating the compact car segment and compete with the likes of the BMW 1-Series , the Volkswagen Golf , and the equally-new Audi A1 .

As we’ve mentioned, the Giulietta will be unveiled in Geneva in two weeks time whereas its market launch is scheduled to take place over the summer in Europe. The car will also come with a myriad of engine variants, including a 120 horsepower and a 170 horsepower version of a 1.4-L turbo unit, a higher end 1.7-L turbo engine that produces about 235 horsepower, and two diesel units that produces about 105 horsepower and 170 horsepower, respectively.

Regardless of what type of engine is fitted underneath its hood, if this video is of any indication as to what the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is capable of – whether it’s on hard surface or in the snow – then we might see a pretty good fight for C-Segment supremacy among all these cars.


Alfa Romeo – yeah, the same brand that’s celebrating its 100th year of existence – will be the “featured marquee” at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

And if the reports across the pond are indeed true, then Alfa Romeo will be using the Festival of Speed to highlight its new flagship sedan, the 2011 Giulietta .

It’s also worth noting that plans for the 2010 Festival of Speed will be preceded by an auto show type event where, in addition to Alfa Romeo, a host of other manufacturers are also scheduled to partake in.

With the attendances for auto shows declining faster than sales of the new Backstreet Boys album – in addition to the seemingly increasing number of these shows propping in the calendar - we can’t help but question the timing of the folks from Goodwood in bringing their own auto circus in town. But then again, we’re not the ones making the decisions so whatever they decide on is their prerogative.

Either way, what seems pretty certain is that the new Alfa Romeo Giullietta, a car that we’ve been waiting quite a while to debut, will indeed be in attendance at the Festival of Speed. If for nothing else, that reason alone should be enough for us to keep a close eye on new developments as to whether or not it will be joined by other car brands for what could be the Festival of Speed’s very first car show.

Contrary to traditional teasers, this teaser video of the 2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietta gives us exactly what we need to know about the car without giving away too much. Whereas most teasers are over before we can even comprehend its content, this one actually lasts longer than most commercials and we’re given a full treat of the Giulietta’s exterior.

Even better, Alfa Romeo gives us the full Italian treatment with the voice-over being spoken in the local language with English subtitles to help make all non-Italian speakers understand what he’s talking about.

Now isn’t this what teaser videos should all look like?
