Alfa Romeo Giulietta – features
The latest Giulietta is one of the so-called C segment. It is produced exclusively as a 5-door hatchback, but thanks to hidden rear door handles on the steam door car from a distance resembles a cone. Giulietta was designed in a similar form, which is a couple of years ago and applied on a smaller MiTo model. This is most noticeable on the front of the car, the bumper, grille, hood, headlights and front wings.
The rear of Guliette also design more moderate than that of the MiTo. What might get in the way is that, unlike for example the model 159 Giulietta at first glance gives the impression of aggressive sports car.
I think that in this model Alfa Romeo tried to expand the target group of mostly young male customers, the family men and women.
What are the terms of the concept car’s exterior and decided to compromise, not to say that the essence of the compromise reached.
As soon as you open the door and peek in the car, it will disappear any doubt (and if you have any) that this is indeed a real Alfa Romeo.
Interior of the Giulietta is a well-balanced combination of sporty and elegant environment.
All is well and everything is in its place. And enjoy the sense of touch and the sense of sight.
The interior is embedded 5-6 different materials. From the softer and harder plastics, leather lining over the steering wheel and handbrake lever, the application of aluminum on the dashboard, gear lever and door handles, and stainless steel pedals.
Special attention is given to the driver position. His office except classical settings back and forth and the backrest can be adjusted for height. With podisivost wheel on two axes can easily come up with the ideal position of the wheel, which you will need when you choose a focus and dynamic driving.
When you adjust the driving position, it is important that your instruments are fully visible when viewed through the steering wheel. Board computer display is slightly smaller, but sufficiently clear and visible through contrasting red numbers. The instruments are well protected from sunlight even during the sunniest summer days.
Commands audio device, located at the top of the center console, and a slightly lower knob air conditioning, effortlessly, elongation. The same is the case with the gear selector and handbrake.
Above command climate control switches are installed fog lights, central locking and disable stop / start system. The switches are designed in a retro style and is activated by pressing down.
The wheels that adjusts air conditioner designed as a multifunction controls. The outer ring is used to adjust the temperature, which each zone is displayed on the display in the middle of the wheel.
All other commands climate control through buttons which are also incorporated three wheels, and between them there are switches for the heater windshield and rear window.
A pillar width reduced to a reasonable level, so that the forward visibility excellent, and minimal dead angles.C pillars are constructed in accordance with the latest trends. In order to park in reverse was less stressful, the test car had a rear parking sensors.
Factory Declared: 7.8 / 4.6 / 5.8 L/100km (city / open road / combined) CO2 emissions: 134 g / km
Under the hood is the 1.4-liter turbo-petrol-filled MultiAir engine that develops 170 hp.
For a car whose mass is 1365 kg is enough to 0 to 100 km / h in 7.8 seconds.
Alfa Giulietta 1.4; volume: 1368 ccm; power: 126 kW/170 hp at 5,500 r / min, max. torque: 250 Nm at 2,500 r / min
Giulietta the factory data reaches a maximum 218 km / h.
The engine is connected to a 6-speed manual transmission, which has a well-measured gears.
Thanks to a powerful motor and high torque is available at lower rpm, the throttle response is good even in top gear.
Transmission allows both the city you are driving on flat sections in the sixth gear, as the stop / start system, which is standard equipment Giulietti, contributes to lower fuel consumption.
After an initial introduction to the Giulietta, the driver will want to try the switch in front of the gear lever – DNA tag.
This system provides three modes of driving. N – normal (or size, as stated in the original), D – dynamic, A (all-weather) – for specific road conditions, such as rain or snow.
In short, N is the fundamental mode to be used during most periods of driving. He will on the one hand provide a relaxed but safe driving – and lower fuel consumption, on the other hand you will still enjoy driving characteristics that provide Giuliettinih 170 HP.
Reliance is the optimal set, and in this mode is also available for economical driving advisor, or indicator of optimum time for gear changes.
This will help to curb those 170 “horses”, when not needed, and to lower fuel consumption, which is especially useful in urban driving.
Still, customers must offer something more. That is how the D mode.
If you select this option, the engine will reward you with quicker response to the accelerator pedal – less pressure delivers more power and sharper way.
When it is necessary that the car has better traction (eg in snow conditions) and to get the best possible use of electronic security systems, you will find the A mode.
That the Giulietta is something special you will see when you export from the town and a ride on the open road.
Lying in the curves is excellent, response to throttle and brake immediate and shifting quickly and smoothly. Thanks to rely no inclination, and comfortable seats compensate for hardness.
Despite minimized factory data on consumption, be prepared for significantly higher results in realistic conditions.
A similar difference in consumption was on the open road, where Giulietta spent 7 l/100 km, and the total average consumption during the test was 9.1 l/100 km.
During construction Giulietta was taken into account many aspects. The engineers deserve credit because they failed to powerful engine and sporty pedigree fit comfortable and functional car that is used for everyday driving.
Driver and front passenger seats comfortable except there are plenty of compartments for small items.Passengers who sit behind will miss leg room, but they will higher due to aerodynamic roofline that descends from the B pillar to the rear of the car, be deprived of the extra space overhead.
Capacities boot is 350 liters, which meets the criteria of the segment in which the Giulietta is located.
Giulietta cabin is very well insulated, so your noise coming from the engine will not mind even during high speed.
As for comfort, the car has another useful accessory. When you go out at night out of it, you will notice that at the bottom of all doors installed lights that illuminate the ground in the immediate vicinity and thus help passengers when exiting the vehicle.
