The Alfa Romeo Giulietta (aka the New 147)

By Blogger on 13 Dec 2009

Alfa's car christening department has gone a little mad.

First, with their MiTo, now the Giulietta. Bringing back the illustrious and beautiful name from the 70s.

I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I think the name is brilliant! It's just a feeling that they were trying a little too hard with the Mito. But the Guilietta.. that sounds fantastico!

The 147's replacement will be showcased at the 2010 Geneva Motor show and this will only be available with 5 doors. So obviously it's meant for people like me who like hot hatches. This is definitely one. Just look at it! Its trademark Alfa triangular grille and those headlamps which are slightly reminiscent of the Alfa Romeo 8C (like the Mito), only better looking.

And those gorgeous rims... a la Mercedes SLR. This car in white is the current hatchback killer. Boring Golf step aside...

It's going to be available with 4 turbo engines, most notably the 170bhp 1.4l Multi-Air petrol engine. The car will also come with lots of electronic gadgetry: Electronic stability control, Dynamic steering torque and the new DNA selector from the Mito.

So that's quite a lot of kit for a car this size with a 5 star NCAP safety rating.

Can't wait for it.

Can you?

Alfa, Giulietta, Alfa Romeo and 1 more...
