The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta is reasserting its position as a compact and sporty car, with a new range offering a choice of three trim levels along with three Euro 6D compliant engines. The updated range also sees the debut of Visconti Green livery, new alloy wheels and special upholstery.
The Giulietta Super shows its personality by adding silver trim around the front bumper and rear diffuser, complementing the existing trim on the "V" grille, headlight housing and door handles, along with 17-inch Turbine alloy wheels. Inside, the Giulietta Super also gets a lift with a new upholstery design complete with grey stitching, while mocha, black and red leather will be available as options. Cruise control, dual zone air conditioning, front fog lights and rear parking sensors are all now standard across the Giulietta range.
The Giulietta Speciale builds on the previous Sport version with 17-inch five hole dark finish alloy wheels and black details on the "V" grille, door handles, door mirrors, foglight surround and Giulietta badge. The front and rear sports bumpers retain their red accents, while body colour side skirts, an oversized exhaust pipe and tinted windows complete the look. Inside, the Speciale gains aluminium kick plate and pedals Alcantara and fabric sports seats with red stitching and red stitching on the flat bottomed steering wheel, gear lever and handbrake.
The Giulietta Veloce completes the line-up by building on the performance characteristics of the Speciale and further increasing the standard specification. Its more aggressive look is achieved with the addition of 18-inch dark five hole alloy wheels, sports bumpers with yellow accents, oversize yellow Brembo brake calipers and twin exhaust pipes. On the inside, the sports vocation of the new Giulietta Veloce is reasserted by new Alcantara and fabric seats with contrasting yellow stitching and head restraints with Alfa Romeo logo, aluminium pedals and kick plate and flat-bottom sports steering wheel with yellow stitching. Front and rear parking sensors, electrochromic rearview mirror, electrically folding wing mirrors, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers and Uconnect 6.5-inch radio NAV are all included as standard to cement the Veloce trim's place at the top of the line-up.
A Veloce Rosso pack is also optionally available, replacing the yellow accents with red on the steering wheel, gear leaver, handbrake and seats, as well as the front splitter, rear diffuser and brake calipers.
