Latest Giulietta at dealers!

As I left the local dealers having booked the Stelvio in to get the alarm sensitivity reduced a Giulietta caught my eye. It was a silver one with the latest yellow insert on the front bumper lower grille. It still looked good at Geneva this year. The Mito was missing for the first time but there were two Giuliettas on the stand.

I saw a matte grey one with the yellow bumper insert at WLMG in reading last week. It looked good (apart from the fresh bird poop on the bonnet!!)

They might look good but what engine/gearbox is available? Last time I looked at the configurator the choice was very limited

The one I saw was a 2itre 168bhp diesel, can't recall if it was a TCT I was distracted by a red Stelvio QF!

Scroll down for the details and a pic of a green one

I don't like the green G! Now the Quadrifoglio Guilia and Stelvios look really good, you might need to change your name to Gabriel Tarquini to drive one on the road!! Proper touring car livery!

I don't like the green G, sorry! But that Black G with the yellow insert is a thing of absolute beauty! I notice that the coloured badge steering wheel has returned. Personally I prefer the non-colour badge. And I see a footrest in the photos...is that just on the Euro models?

Briefly saw a black one with yellow trim at a dealers, didn't stop to look at it. Good deals on the sport at the moment but the engine range seems poor, not madly keen on the yellow bit either.

The HVAC is offset to the right so there’s space for a footrest in the LHD cars.

When’s the actually new Giulietta coming out? Must be soon, this one is getting pretty long in the tooth...

Back to RWD maybe?

FCA is going to be in trouble in the long term though with no EV or even hybrids in the works... The guilia platform based Giulietta I’m sure with be fun, but could be the last one ever.

I suspect the boss of the company has not changed his mind since this https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/m...ely-be-renewed
Except by something like https://www.alfaromeo.co.uk/models/tonale-concept#_
It’s a hybrid and the more popular SUV format

Bloody pleased with my Stelvio!
It’s way better than the Giuliettas I had before.
And there’s a profit margin which makes it viable to keep Alfa going.

Stelvio is a great car, mega practical but I just don’t think it’s that good looking.

It certainly grows on you. I still get “that feeling” when I see a Giulietta. It wasn’t done in hurry, not the exterior anyway...

Stelvio - just like a Guilia but slower heavier with worse handling and poorer safety. Sounds awesome...

Should have been a Guilia wagon. More practical and not stupid looking...

Sigh.

They are a great car and a lot better looking than most SUVs.

I just fell in love with the Giulietta I bought one as soon as they came out. Was gutted to have to get rid of it when the second kid and dog came along. Since then I had a Honda CRV and a Disco sport. Both really practical but horrible to drive.

Now the kids are a bit more grown up I changed the Disco to a 2017 Giulietta 1.75. Absolutely love it. Not as practical but it puts a smile on my face.

The Giulietta is still a very good looking car. It also drives very well I think. Unfortunately however, without the new gadgets and safety kit that can be had on run of the mill Vauxhalls, Renaults, Fords etc., it just can't compete anymore except 2nd hand. The interior is starting to fall behind as well. I'm thinking of getting an auto to replace the G, but there's so much more modern offerings out there I just don't think I'll be going for a TCT Giulietta unfortunately. On the plus side, my 118k miles 8yr old version looks pretty much the same as a brand new one in a dealer showroom.

You have no idea what you’re on about! The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is faster to 60 than the equivalent Giulia. Mine does it in 6.5 secs. It’s equally safe. Get the facts. Even better drive one. “Worse handling”?It drives fantastically. And why would a wagon be more practical?
