Alfa Romeo recently announced that the stylish Giulietta hatchback will soon get a new entry level model. According to the Italian car maker, this new entry level engine will be a detuned version of the 120PS 1.4 litre turbo unit, which is currently the entry level power plant.

The lower power engine produces 105PS at 5000 rpm with 206 Nm of peak torque at 1750 rpm. It is speculated that Alfa did not choose the 1.4 litre naturally-aspirated Multiair petrol lump as the entry level engine due to its lower torque output. The new 1.4 litre turbo is expected to bring the Giulietta from 0 to 100km/h in 10.6 seconds before reaching a top speed of 185km/h. Coincidentally, the sprint time is the same as the entry level VW Golf 1.2 TSI DSG.

The ‘new’ Giulietta has a six-speed manual gearbox with an auto start/stop system. It drinks petrol at a rate of 6.4L/100km. Alfa claims that the new model will be more affordable for European buyers and will soon be available for sale throughout the continent.

Measuring 4.35 metres long, 1.46m high and 1.8m wide, the Giulietta is Alfa’s answer to the VW Golf and made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. However, the hatchback has yet to be launched locally in the Lion City.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Isn't there a more advanced transmission, dual clutch? Clearly, the AD sux.
