Back in 2010, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta was introduced and since then more than 212,000 units have been ordered worldwide. Still, the current Giulietta needed an update and Alfa Romeo officially announced today.
Set to make its world debut next week at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Facelift comes with some exterior updates such as a redesigned front grille, new fog lights with chrom-plated frame and a new set of 16-, 17- and 18-inch alloy wheels. The front headlights have DRL with LED technology and a day light function for maximum active safety, while the rear lights use LED technology in the same way. In addition, three new exterior colors are available: Moonlight Pearl, Anodizzato Blue and Bronze.
The interior of the 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Facelift was updated too and now features new door panels and handles and new insert on the central console and dashboard. Alfa Romeo also updated the seats and the steering wheel. The 2014 Giulietta Quadrigoflio Verde version offers new sports seats upholstered in black leather/Alcantara with contrasting stitching with electro-welded logo on the backrest (also available on the QV Sportiva Pack).
2014 Giulietta Progressive comes with black/anthracite grey fabric, while the Giulietta MY 2014 Distinctive customer can choose between two colour combinations for the fabric upholstery: black/tobacco or anthracite grey.
2014 Giulietta Exclusive features leather/fabric upholstery that can be in the shade of either black/anthracite grey or tobacco/anthracite grey. The 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta also received a new 2.0-liter JDTM engine developing 15- hp and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. Style, Visibility, Comfort, Lusso, Premium, Business, Sport and QV Sportiva: many specific packs available depending on the market to further customise your Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV MY 2014.
Alfa Romeo has a long tradition of coming out with the best models. By utilizing a tradition of dynamic performance, the Giulietta is able to take its own place. It does this without ever needing to sacrifice the efficiency and convenience on a daily level. The reason for this improvement in the performance is due to the continuous technological studies displayed at its best in this model. Making this possible as well is the use of what is known as the “Compact” architecture.
Under this configuration, high-resistance materials have been used allowing the structure’s weight to be limited. This is in addition to having active Dual Pinion steering. There is also the sophisticated suspension set-up with the front having the MacPherson strut and the rear with the advanced Multi-link suspension. The brand made sure that this latest offering would be able to adapt the comfort and driving satisfaction to the specific needs of the customer.
This is owed to what is called as the Alfa DNA selector. The selector is a device which allows drivers to customize the behavior of the model to adapt to the different driving styles and the various road conditions. Further, Alfa Romeo revealed that the Giulietta has an architecture that was mainly designed to not only integrate the different systems but even exploit them to the fullest.
It thus highlights the three set-up functions of Normal, Dynamic, and All Weather, all available with the Alfa DNA selector. Being equipped on the whole line as a standard feature, the goal of including this particular equipment is to be able to modify the operating parameters of the different components like the steering system, gearbox, Q2 electronic differential, and engine.
It can even change the Electronic Stability Control system and its behavior logic. Under the Giulietta, Alfa Romeo disclosed that looking at its construction the quality is truly outstanding and exceptional on each level to result in comfort that showcases excellent standard. A combination of vertical and longitudinal filtering capacity for the suspension guarantees remarkable driving comfort.
There are also significant technical refinements that allow the 2014 Giulietta to offer a more enjoyable drive and a quieter one. Examples include enhancements on the pedal unit, wheel arch, bumpers, and even luggage compartment.
