2010 Alfa Romeo Giulietta is the safest compact ever!

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Alfa Romeo's latest model, the Giulietta, got a five star rating with an overall score of 87/100 from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP).

Alfa Romeo said that the result points to the Giulietta as the safest compact ever. The vehicle's rating is made more impressive because in 2009, Euro NCAP implemented a new evaluation system.

In particular, the Giulietta got ratings of 97% for Adult Occupant, 85% for Child Occupant, 63% for Pedestrian Protection and 86% for Safety Assist. Alfa Romeo asserted that in 2012, the car will still have a five-star rating.

With regards to safety features, the Giulietta is equipped with a Vehicle Dynamic Control system, a MSR system, which prevents wheel locking when the throttle is released, the DST (Dynamic Steering Torque) system, an Electronic Q2, and the innovative Prefill system.

The vehicle also features six airbags as standard (two of which are Multistage), three-point seatbelts with double pretensioners and load limit limiters.

It also has the SAHR (Self Aligning Head Restraints), a new second-generation device fitted onto the backrests of the front seats that moves the head restraints closer to the occupants' heads when an impact is detected. This feature minimizes the effects of whiplash.
