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.

I actually like the capabilities of the car to run along on a snowy and hard surface plus its high horsepower. Knowing the name of its company the car’s they produced really roar. But what I dont like about the Alfa Romeo Giulietta model is the one they showed in the youtube for the advertisement of their model vehicle, what come’s into my mind is...”Is that Spiderman’s car!” I hope there are some more Alfa Romeo Giulietta but not the one they showed in youtube if you know what I mean.

Marcus have a point that putting this car on a race may be a ’make or break’ test, really like that recommendation. Of course we’re tired on watching some official videos that may fake us on what’s the real performance of a car. As a hatchback car, there are lots to compete and that includes the Impreza and the Focus RS that have good reputation on a race.

Well, if it were that good, enter it in a rally race or something. That kind wherein they have to tackle all sort of surfaces such as mud, dirt, hard pavement, snow and others. It will be great to see it in action in beside Citroen and Subaru.
