2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Hatchback Review

This car comes with simple featured dashboard, which is easy to operate. But the other features are highly disappointing without a doubt. The steering wheel is too high, even after adjusting it, to its lowest setting possible. Seats also do not compliment well, to the cause, which uplifts the privation immensely. Your left foot does not get in the relaxed position, because the clutch is fixed too close, to the central console. The pedals are fixed at varied heights; therefore it becomes difficult to operate smoothly.
There is adequate space upfront, but at the rear seats, legroom and headroom are down than ordinary. Though there is some utilitarian space in mid of the front seats. Boot space is average, and there is sublimate lip for the items to load.
In the initial range models you will get the DAB radio, Bluetooth, alloy wheels, AC. If you pick the Distinctive spec, then you will get cruise control, rear parking sensor, and climate control. If you desire to own a sporty look model, then you can go for the expensive variants of this car, but the profitable deal would be with the cheaper models.
This car has decent fleet of turbocharged engines, to bestow you the elegant performance on roads. In petrol engines you have choices like 1.4 liter with 118bhp, 168bhp or 1.7 liter with 237bhp, whichever you find sufficient for your rides. There is also choice in diesel engines as well, 1.6 liter with 103bhp and double of 2.0 liters with 148bhp or 2.0 liter with 172bhp. The 1.6 liter diesel engine is comparatively better than the 2.0 liter diesel engine.
Convenient control makes this car agile in meanders. You also get the variety in the steering and accelerator responses, by choosing out of the three variants. But you do not receive the adequate steering feel, you would also want, to exclude the dynamic mode, because it produces hurdles in swift driving.
Generally these petrol engines are decent, but they produce a yawl in testing conditions. The 2.0 liter diesel engine is also gets down and creates a bellow, when you put your foot hard, on the accelerator. The TCT auto gearbox is soothing, but the manual gear shift is cogged.
This car is available at good rates, and holds the good resale value. Stability control, side, front and curtain airbags, anti-whiplash front head are some of the prime security features, which are fixed as standard. There is dead lock and parts marking in every variant, and in the distinctive variants, there is an anti theft alarm. It also has got tremendous rating at Euro NCAP crash test.
