Alfa Romeo has announced plans to introduce an updated Giulietta at the Paris Motor Show.

While the styling remains unchanged, the biggest addition is a twin-clutch transmission. Dubbed TCT, the gearbox promises driving comfort and sporty feeling well above those offered by conventional automatic transmissions.

At the same time, it also offer improved efficiency and lower consumption levels. The TCT will be available on the 1.4-litre MultiAir and the new 2.0-litre JTDM.

The new JTDM unit produces 138bhp and 350Nm of torque. Performance figures weren't released, but combined fuel consumption is 4.5L/100 km and C02 emissions are 119g/km. Perhaps, Singapore motorists would be more interested in the 1.4 petrol MultiAir unit. Combined with turbocharging technology, it produces 170bhp. The TCT equipped MultiAir Giulietta would certainly give some fierce competition to the VW Golf Sport.

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.
