Fifth Gear has tested the new hatchback produced by the Italian company. The new Giulietta marks 100 years of Italian tradition and sportsmanship.
Alfa Romeo Giulietta is in the same class with the Volkswagen Golf and measures 171 in long, 57.4 in height, width 70.8 in and a wheelbase of 2103.5 in. The luggage capacity is 350 liters.
Alfa Romeo hit with new Giulietta. The compact model, with premium claims, but intended to steal customers from Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, has manage to gain more adherents in Europe. In just two months after launch, included here from May 31 to July 31, the Italian automaker has totalised 22,000 orders, a number that of course exceed the officials’ expectation.
It seems that the supposed Marchionne’s “sick child” works in Italy, where Giulietta arrived in the garage of 5,229 customers. Only in the first weekend dedicated to test the model, the so-called operation “opening doors” registered 2,700 orders.
New Alfa Romeo Giulietta was officially launched this spring, at Geneva Motor Show. Developed on the Bravo’s platform, Giulietta aims to relaunch the Italian brand and mark commercial results better than its predecessor, 147.
