Updated Giulietta range boasts lower emissions and improved economy

Alfa Romeo has introduced the revised Giulietta range, which boasts lower emissions and improved economy without compromising on performance.

The popular small family car has been updated to include a variable geometry turbo-charger and low rolling-resistance tyres, both of which combine to reduce the car's emissions from 104g/km to 99g/km.

The popular 1.6-litre JTDM-2 turbo diesel engine sees an increase in power from 105hp to 120hp, taking the top speed up by 6mph to 121mph. The updated Giulietta can now accelerate to 62mph in 10 seconds, an improvement of 1.3 seconds on the previous model.

All engines available in the Giulietta range are now compliant with Euro6 regulations, excluding the recently introduced 2.0 JDTM-2turbo diesel 150hp. Emissions and economy are also improved, resulting in a one percent BIK reduction on all engines, while the 1.4 MultiAir Turbo Petrol 150hp and 170hp engines slip into a lower emissions band, reducing the OTR price by £130 and annual running costs even further.

Despite the upgraded engines, the pricing for the Alfa Romeo Giulietta range remains unchanged. On the road pricing for the 1.4 TB 120hp Progression starts at £18,450 whilst the 1.6 JTDM-2 120hp Progression is priced from £19,500.

The Business Edition starts at £19,080 OTR for the 1.6 JTDM-2 120hp turbo diesel. This model features extras such as a 6.5-inch touchscreen Uconnect infotainment system with voice activated satellite navigation, 3D mapping and DAB digital radio; front and rear parking sensors; automatic lights and wipers and alloy wheels and metallic paint.
