Giulietta 1.4 TB

Dipping my toe


I'm completely new to Alfa's. Currently I have a Mk4 Golf GTI, but she's getting more and more costly to run

I am test driving a Giulietta on Saturday, but having just sat in it I think I will end up with one! To even out I am also testing a Fiesta, but I have spent so long looking at Giuliettas (and joining this forum!), that I think I know which way I will go.

I'm testing a 1.4 petrol TB m/air Lusso, but unsure what engine would be best for me. I thought I would start with the smallest and go from there. There is a Cloverleaf in the showroom which I think is well priced, and an insurance quote was quite reasonable, but I'm not sure about the upkeep as I can be quite lazy with cars. Looks lovely though!

Something tells me I will be a fully fledged member of this forum in a couple of weeks

Hello and welcome to wonderful world of Alfa Romeo.

If you're driving GTi at the moment you should really get an equivalent Giullietta. The 1.4 TB 170 bhp MultiAir. Anything else wouldn't be a fair comparison, would it
