A new forum to improve the safety grip and agility, comfort and total
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta presents an entirely new platform - called Compact - designed to satisfy the most demanding customers in terms of handling, agility and safety.

The new platform of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta was designed to integrate various vehicle systems and exploit them in full, which underlines the three setup functions (Dynamic, Normal and All Weather) available through the Alfa DNA switch.
This device is standard across the range of the new model is designed to change the operating parameters of the engine, gearbox, steering and electronic differential Q2 behavior, in addition to the logic of the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC).
Sporty and comfortable, Italian style
The perfect blend of sportiness and style, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta redefines the technology standards of the brand and the emotional values.
On the face of a new interpretation of a classic dish embedded in the front bumper and the break between the air intakes. This is the starting point for designing the entire car, which combines a strong personality clearly an elegant form. The headlights are LED daytime running lights and the light of day as a measure of active safety.
Although the profile of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is full of personality that gives the impression of a car flexible and robust. This is mainly because of the side windows, similar to the appearance of a cut, highlights the dynamics and liquid form, thanks to hidden behind the door handles.

Finally, measuring the amount of compact and dynamic shape of the new car for a very comfortable and spacious boot (350 liters): it is 4.35 meters long, 1.46 meters high and 1.80 meters wide , with a wheelbase of 2.63 meters.
Advanced features for maximum well-being on board
The attention to detail and quality of materials used in interiors today, as always, the ultimate expression of Italian style. More specifically, the dominant concept of interior design is a new lightness. The lines are clean and the instrument panel to develop horizontally.

In detail, boasts 1750 turbo gasoline engine advanced technical solutions, including direct fuel injection, dual continuously variable valve timing, turbocharging and a revolutionary control system that gets rid of scavengers any turbo lag. The resulting performance is comparable to - or better - as in many 3-liter engine fuel consumption while continuing to offer is a typical four-cylinder compact unit.
It should be noted that the specific power of 134 hp / liter is the world's highest and the four-cylinder is installed in this vehicle class, as well as the highest ever achieved in the production of Alfa Romeo engines.
