Giulietta gains new 119g/km diesel engine
The new 2.0 JTDM-2 140bhp is equipped with the latest-generation JTDM-2 MultiJet Common Rail system that is already present on the 1.6 JTDM-2 (105bhp) and the 2.0 JTDM-2 (170bhp) power units.
Alfa says the new Giulietta offers CO2 emissions of 119g/km – giving it a 13% BiK rate – and official combined fuel consumption of 62.8mpg along with a top speed of 127mph and acceleration from 0-62 mph in 9 seconds.
The engine is Euro 5 compliant and is equipped with DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) and Start&Stop as standard.
Alfa also promises that the Giulietta only needs servicing every 21,000 miles.
The new model is priced at £20,075 for the Lusso and £22,050 for the Veloce.
