Alfa Romeo fans in the UK have a reason to be happy as the Italian manufacturer has launched the all new 2014 Giulietta there. Alfa Romeo cars have always been known for their eye-catching and attractive styling and the Giulietta, which was launched back in 2010, is one of the best examples of it.
In brief if I had to explain the changes, the exterior of the 2014 Giulietta has been reconsidered, and adds a new front grille design, new front fog light bezels, new 16-, 17- and 18- inch wheel designs and a couple of new exterior color options. As for the interior, there will be a redesigned dashboard, standard Uconnect multimedia system and relocated USB/Aux ports.
Starting with the interior first, Alfa Romeo has added Uconnect multimedia system as a standard feature which makes use of a 5-inch colour touch screen or voice commands. The new system features Bluetooth connectivity, wireless music streaming, hands-free SMS reading and DAB (digital radio). 2014 Giulietta models fitted with satellite navigation get a larger 6.5-inch screen. Apart from this system, the 2014 Giulietta benefits from new door trim panels, new steering wheel design, new upholstery and leather finishes, and more.
Powering the vehicle is a range of improved engines which offer fuel efficiency while reducing emissions. The engine options include a 1.4 TB MultiAir TCT that produces 170 hp, a 1.6 JTDM-2 diesel unit producing 105 hp, and an all new 2.0 JTDM-2 diesel. New for 2014, the diesel-powered 2.0 JTDM-2 engine utilizes third-generation Common Rail injection system and Injection Rate Shaping (IRS) system. Together these technologies help the 2.0 JTDM-2 produce 150 hp of power while cutting down on operation noise and emissions.
Alfa Romeo will offer the 2014 Giulietta in four trim levels: Progression, Distinctive, Exclusive and Sportiva Nav. And the car will be available in three new exterior color options: Luna Pearl, Cobalto Blue and Metallo Bronze.
