Refreshed 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta revealed
The refreshed 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta has been revealed following extensive revision of the thing back in 2014.
THE REFRESHED 2016 ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA has been revealed boasting a tweaked front-end styling “that includes a striking new honeycomb grille, piano black bumper inserts (with red highlights on sporty models) and revised headlamp and fog lamp surrounds”.
The intention with the refresh, says Alfa Romeo, was to bring the Giulietta and the new Giulia closer together in looks. It features new badge designs, new alloy wheels, revised tailpipe and new colours, a new engine and transmission combination has also been added to the line-up, although it’s not known whether this will arrive with the refreshed model in Australia.
Inside the new Giulietta there are revised seat upholsteries, dashboard and door panel finishes, a Uconnect infotainment system now with smartphone-enabled LIVE services (music streaming with Deezer and TuneIn, news with Reuters, Facebook Check-In and Twitter, plus eco:Drive and my:Car services and traffic updates for navigation-equipped models).
Also debuting on the new Giulietta is Alfa Performance, a new service specifically created to enhance the driving experience. Using an array of digital gauges and instruments, drivers can control the main parameters of the car, measure their performance using special timers and see driving statistics on their smartphone, in addition to receiving real-time driving tips. The service is available on Uconnect 6.5” Radio Nav LIVE.
The new Giulietta goes on-sale in the UK on April 1, and we can expect to see it Down Under towards the end of the year. While Alfa Romeo has released details on the UK-spec vehicle, we know nothing of what extra bits and bobs Australian delivered cars will get. Stay tuned.
