Good result for Alfa Giulietta

The Alfa Giulietta finished as the 7th best car on the UK/Irish market in a survey of 46,000 Auto Express readers, it was deemed to be more reliable than a VW Golf. It came 5th for performance, 6th for braking and 10th for handling!!! Seems strange that Alfa Romeo Ireland cannot sell even one Alfa Giulietta to the Irish motoring public in 2013 with what appears to be a very good car.

Its not they can't...its that they do not want to...

Plenty of reports here of people walking into dealers looking for a new car and being pushed to buy one of their second hand stock...

AROC magazine had an ad (for UK market) Guilietta 1.4 120bhp I think.
2K deposit 199 per month for 4 years (3 of which have unlimited warranty) balloon payment of 5K odd.
Seems a decent deal....

That's weird, is this because Alfa Romeo Ireland have still some 2012 pre-reg Giulietta's unsold?

The Auto Express survey really is very positive for the Giulietta, it is rated 5th best for performance, 6th best for braking, 10th best for handling and in terms of reliability its ahead of its main rivals the Ford Focus, VW Golf and Audi A4.
