Car reviews - Alfa Romeo - Giulietta - 1.4T MultiAir 5-dr hatch


Italy finally launches a serious attack on Germany as Guilietta guns for Golf

21 Jul 2011

DO YOU fancy a spacious and stylish hatch with a bit of luxury but don’t care to join the hordes of up-spec Mazda3 and VW Golf drivers out there? Believe it or not, your Alfa Romeo dealer may have just the (super) model you’re looking for, for the Giulietta is a grown-up go-kart with verve and style to spare. It’s too soon to make a reliability call of course, but on the strength of its packaging, driveability and efficiency, this Italian makes for an unexpectedly capable sub-$40K contender.
Model release date: 1 February 2011 to 1 December 2014

Alfa Romeo 147 Twin Spark

Released: July 2005
Ended: January 2011
Family Tree: Giulietta

A BREATH of fresh air, the original 147 of 2001 thrust Alfa Romeo right up against the popular Audi A3 and VW Golf in the burgeoning posh end of the small-car market, beating the BMW 1 Series by several years. By 2005 the Series II facelift brought a sharper nose and some detailed mechanical improvements including steps to make the ride suppler and quieter, while a raft of refinement upgrades were also introduced – and all at a lower price than before. But the mainstay engine remained as before – Fiat/Alfa’s long-lived 110kW/181Nm 1970cc twin-cam four-cylinder petrol engine known as the Twin Spark - with a slick-shifting five-speed manual or problematic five-speed Selespeed automated manual gearbox. With sharp steering, reasonable fuel economy and rorty performance, the 147 Twin Spark gained a dedicated following, and remained virtually unchanged for the duration of its decade on sale in Australia.
