The five-door Alfa Giulietta hatchback can now be ordered with the twin dry clutch semi-automatic transmission ALFA TCT that boosts the performance as well as raises efficiency and cuts fuel consumption. The new Alfa Giulietta features the next-generation ALFA TCT semi-automatic transmission and optional shift paddles located at the back of the steering wheel.
As a result, the vehicle is able to set new standards when it comes to performance, fuel consumption and emissions. The ALFA TCT range includes the 2.0 JTDM-2 170 bhp diesel engine and the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp petrol, which received the International Engine of Year Award for Best New Engine in 2010.
These raise the appeal of the Giulietta whether in fleet or consumer sales. The 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp Giulietta with ALFA TCT transmission offers a sportiness that enables the car to reach a top speed of 135 mph and to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 7.7 seconds. It’s a feat that the car’s performance is so impressive and yet its fuel consumption and emissions are amazingly low. It returns 54.3 mpg over a combined cycle and 121 g/km of CO2.
With these figures, the Giulietta comes with the petrol engine in the C segment that has the lowest CO2 emissions. It also has a BIK rate of just 15%. The figures attained when the 2.0 JTDM-2 170 HP diesel engine is used are excellent.
It’s certainly better when compared to the same version with manual gearbox. Its 0 to 62 mph acceleration time falls from 8.0 seconds to 7.9 seconds. Meanwhile, its fuel consumption (combined cycle) drops from 60.1 mpg to 62.8 mpg. CO2 emissions remain steady at only 119 g/km (124 g/km with manual gearbox), leading to a BIK rate of only 13%.
