After revealing just a few details in the last few months, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta hatchback has finally been detailed completely by the Italian carmaker.
Set to hit the European market soon enough, the new hatch will take the fight to rivals like the Volkswagen Golf or the Ford Focus by combining entry-level C segment price with quality found on the premium models like the Audi A3 or the BMW 1 Series.
The car is going to be the centerpiece of Alfa’s resurrection, which began with the MiTo compact some time ago. The Giulietta, as you can clearly see, sports the new design line premiered on the 8C Competizione supercar and will use a new platform that will be shared among the Fiat and Chrysler group. If it will become popular, the Italian hatch might even make it stateside in the future. If not, at least its platform will be put to good use by Chrysler.
The engines are also going to be swapped around the Fiat group, with the Giulietta using two 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline engines, one developing 120 HP while the other, with the help of Fiat’s MultiAir variable valve technology, will develop 170 HP. Two turbodiesel units are also going to appear, a 105 HP 1.6-liter and a 170 HP 2.0-liter unit. Performance fans are going to get a Quadrifoglio Verde (Cloverleaf) edition packing a direct injection turbocharged 1.8-liter gasoline engine capable of 235 HP and coupled to a dual-clutch gearbox. The regular engines will only be available with six-speed manuals.
Overall, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta is extremely impressive. In case you want to admire it, check out the photo gallery below.
