En­gine up­grade for Alfa Gi­uli­etta

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drivetimeextra -

Ital­ian brand Alfa Romeo has up­graded the en­gines in its Gi­uli­etta line- up for bet­ter econ­omy and lower emis­sions – with­out any in­crease in prices. While the re­vamp is ex­tended to both petrol and diesel units, busi­ness driv­ers will be at­tracted by the 1.6 JTDM-2 diesel be­cause of its re­duc­tion in emis­sions from 104g/km to 99g/km. That’s thanks to the ad­di­tion of a vari­able- ge­om­e­try tur­bocharger and low rollingre­sis­tance tyres, which re­sults in a one per­cent ben­e­fit-inkind re­duc­tion to 17 per cent and free an­nual Road Fund Li­cence. Pric­ing starts at £ 18,450 for the 1.4 TB 120bhp Pro­gres­sion model while the Busi­ness Edi­tion range, which fea­tures stuff like a 6.5-inch touch­screen Ucon­nect info sys­tem with voice ac­ti­vated sat- nav, park­ing sen­sors au­to­matic lights and wipers, al­loy wheels and me­tal­lic paint as stan­dard, start from £19,080 for the 1.6 JTDM-2.
