2013 Alfa MiTo and Giulietta now available with the intelligent All-Weather control

Article by Christian A., on January 24, 2013

Driving during the worst of winter in the UK is easier when you have any of the Alfa MiTo and Giulietta models that come with Alfa’s innovative D.N.A. system, which features an All-Weather driving mode. The Alfa MiTo and Giulietta ranges get the intelligent Vehicle Dynamic Control.

Drivers can choose from ‘D’ (Dynamic), ‘N’ (Natural) and ‘A’ (All-Weather) driving modes. When the car is in All-Weather mode, the ASR (Anti Slip Regulation) system constantly tracks the tire grip, its yaw and the steering angle. When necessary, the system narrows the throttle opening and the brakes are applied to the individual wheels to sustain stability. Simultaneously, the VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) system turns more intrusive, perfect for conditions where wheels could be on both snow and tarmac.

In addition, a Mµ-Split control function permits the car to discover traction and control at the same time on two totally diverse road conditions. This works together with the DST (Dynamic Steering Torque) feature that offers steering torque movements to initiate the natural correction of oversteer. Lastly, Hydraulic Brake Assistance also raises the braking pressure and as a result, it lessens the braking distances in an emergency.

According to Damien Dally, Head of Brand, Alfa Romeo UK, innovations like the Alfa D.N.A. system assist in making Alfa Giulietta into one of the safest models in its class with a 5-star Euro NCAP rating, which includes an 86% score in the Safety Assist category.

He also said that this model is a “great choice” for the entire year but it’s the intelligent choice in the difficult winter months when drivers depend more on their vehicle’s technology so that they remain safe and in control. Those who take the ‘All-Weather’ for a test drive in January could benefit from 5 Years Warranty, £2,000 Alfa Romeo deposit contribution, and 5.5% APR throughout the Giulietta range. As an additional incentive, customers also get £500 more on any new Alfa Giulietta that was registered before January 31, 2013.
