March 2010: Car of the week: Alfa Giulietta

How appropriate that, in Alfa Romeo’s centenary year when they’re revelling in their glorious history, they should revive one of their most glamorous names for their sporty new hatchback.

Giulietta, originally a snazzy coupé unveiled back in 1954, acquired a bit of tarnish when it was applied to a grotesque rustbox during Alfa’s dark days in the 1970s and 1980s. This newest manifestation, though, looks a cracker.

Built on an all-new platform, the Giulietta arrives brimful of new technology, including the fuel-saving stop-start feature, and has a choice of three petrol and two diesel turbocharged engines.

MM verdict: Italian glamour is always welcome.
