2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietta (Progression, Distinctive and Quadrifoglio Verde) Review - Official photos, features, specs
From performance levels to superior comfort, enhanced safety and cutting-edge technology:
These are precisely the features which make the Alfa Romeo Giulietta so popular for everyday use, the same qualities which have led it to be awarded a generous 16 prizes from the international press so far, including: “Auto Europa 2011” (Italian Automotive Specialised Press Association), "Die besten Autos 2011" (Auto Motor und Sport, Germany), "Greek Car of the Year 2011" (Automotive press, Greece), “Volante d’oro 2010” (Auto Swiat, Poland), "Design Award 2010" (Auto Bild, Germany), "Auto Trophy 2010" (AutoZeitung, Germany), Trophée 2011 (Argus, France - in the "Compacte" category for the Alfa Giulietta 1.6 JTDM 105), "Best Car in Class 2010" (Bilmagasinet, Denmark) and "Women’s car of the year 2010" (Zurnal, Slovenia).
At the 81st Geneva International Motor Show, the Alfa Romeo 4C Concept makes its debut, a compact "supercar" which represents the true essence of a sports car, according to the brand's values: performance, Italian style and technical excellence aimed at maximum driving pleasure in total safety.
The new concept presents the classic formula of the two-seater, rear-wheel drive coupé with its engine at the centre, a length of approximately 4 metres and a wheelbase of less than 2.4 metres: dimensions which serve both to emphasise the compact size of the car and to accentuate its agility.
Distinguished by its graceful and clean external lines, the same principles are also applied to the inside, with the Concept's specific on-board design maintaining features and devices which directly reflect the car's sporting spirit.
The advent of the Model Year 2011 renews the interior styling of the Alfa Romeo 159 range, which is reinforced with option packs that guarantee customers a wider range of creature comforts.
With a style that oozes sportiness and road performance levels that make it highly competitive in its category, the Alfa Romeo 159 MY 2011 (saloon and Sportwagon versions) also boasts a price list that is decidedly competitive considering the content on offer.
A new 136 HP 2.0 JTDM engine with 6 speed manual gearbox will debut at the Paris Show. This is an up-to-date Euro 5 power unit with variable geometry turbocharger able to deliver an impressive 350 Nm of maximum torque at low speeds (1750 rpm) and allowing very respectable performance combined with low fuel consumption and low CO2 emissions (134 g/km for the saloon – 137 g/km for the Sportwagon). This means that the 159 is competitive even in European markets where taxation is based on CO2 emissions.
At the recent 2009 Geneva Motor Show, Alfa Romeo unveiled numerous major developments heralding the re-launch of the brand on the global stage. Protagonist of the event was the new Alfa Romeo 159 (saloon and Sportwagon versions). The new 159 is designed to express a sporting yet seductive personality and boasts road holding and performance that set new standards for this class of car.
Two new engines in particular (a 200 HP, 1750 cc turbocharged petrol engine and a 170 HP 2.0 JTDM diesel) place the Alfa Romeo 159 firmly in market segment D, in the power range that accounts for over half of Alfa Romeo sales.
