Devised to to the different needs of drivers in the in pursuit of safety, driving and comfort, the Alfa Romeo is available in three trim (Progression, Distinctive and Quadrifoglio to which two different optional for customising the car can be added.

Specifically, the models on show at the Romeo stand include the 170 HP 1.4 customised with the Sport which enhances the sporty of the car, with specific which improve the already handling of the car and includes 18’’ wheels (or as an alternative, 17’’), skirts, sports pedals, seats with leather and upholstery, brushed burnished dashboard insert, burnished frames and dark interiors.

All linked to active and passive are fitted as standard over the range: from the dynamic control device, Alfa DNA Q2 electronic differential, DST and Pre-fill), VDC ASR and Hill Holder), 6 airbags. seat belts with pretensioner and front seats anti-whiplash system as standard.

The guarantees the highest levels of and technology through a range of that represent the state-of-the-art in of technology, performance levels and To date, 5 turbo engines are all Euro 5 compliant and with system as standard to reduce consumption and emissions: two petrol (1.4TB – 120 HP and 1.4TB – 170 HP, the latter voted New Engine 2010”) and three versions (1.6 JTDM 105 HP, 2.0 JTDM – 170 HP and the new 2.0 JTDM 140 HP, all with generous service of 35,000 km).

The 235 HP 1750 TBi with the exclusive Quadrifoglio trim level completes the This engine affords a torque of 195 Nm/litre which is the of all petrol engines in this and – an excellent feature the torque of 340 Nm is distributed at just rpm. In detail, the 1750 petrol engine boasts technological solutions including fuel injection, dual variable valve timing, a and a revolutionary scavenging control that gets rid of any “turbo

Depending on the version, some content is available, including zone automatic climate bi-xenon headlights with AFS rear parking sensors, Hi-Fi system, BlueMe-TomTom radio navigation system maps and pop-up display, TMC Pro and SD with European map®.

The compact car for Euro NCAP rating)

The Alfa Romeo achieved the prestigious Euro 5-star rating with an score of 87/100 (2010 an extraordinary result that it the safest compact ever. The is even more important that since 2009 NCAP has adopted a new scheme of four areas of assessment, Adult Occupant, Child Pedestrian Protection and a new area: Assist. Injury avoidance and functions, such as seat reminder, ESP and speed limiter, are rated.

Achieving a five-star will become increasingly year by year (2009, 2012). In this scenario, the achieved by the Alfa Romeo (97% Adult Occupant, 85% Occupant, 63% Pedestrian Protection and 86% Assist) means that the car also have five-star in 2012 when the system have reached maximum

This major accolade yet confirms Alfa Romeo’s commitment to all aspects relating to and active safety. Proof of for instance, is the adoption of the most electronic dynamic control (from braking to traction): the Dynamic Control system, manages key functions, like Holder, traction control and panic braking, the MSR system, prevents wheel locking the throttle is released, the DST (Dynamic Torque) system, Electronic Q2, electronically simulates the presence of a differential, and the brand-new Pre-fill which – in Dynamic – alerts the braking that the accelerator pedal has released to decrease intervention and consequently braking distance.

Fifteen thousand hours of simulations facilitated the creation of the new architecture. The quality of virtual was materially put to the test on the cars at the Cassino plant by running than a hundred tests on and subsystems, one hundred and fifty slide shock test and more than a hundred tests (frontal impact, impact, roll-over and shunting, various speeds, different of obstacles and the need to protect physically very different one another into account).

numbers confirm Alfa’s commitment to making the Alfa Giulietta one of the safest cars in Total protection, in short, as by six airbags as standard (two of Multistage), three point with double pretensioners and limiters and S.A.H.R. (Self Head Restraint) system, a new generation device built the backrests of the front seats moves the head restraints to the occupants’ heads in the event of a to lessen the effects of whiplash.

The of all these devices is maximised by a load line front that guarantees structural and consequently uniformity of response in the of frontal impact regardless of the of obstacles or vehicle that the car into. This is a breakthrough in protection, because the vehicle is aggressive when crashing the front or side of another and in self protection, because the deformation makes the retaining more effective regardless of the of crash.

In the field of preventive safety, the Romeo Giulietta also LED headlights with Daytime Light function that turn on the sidelights when the is started and LED tail lights, than conventional bulbs, providing extra safety.

The “Alfa TCT” transmission

Alfa Romeo Giulietta

its debut on the Alfa Romeo the Giulietta is the second Group to combine an Alfa TCT transmission the 170 HP 1.4 MultiAir turbo petrol a distillate of technology which high performance levels the lowest emissions and fuel levels in its category for petrol of this power rating. Alfa Romeo Giulietta outstanding performance: 218 km/h top 5.2 l/100 km over a combined 121 g/km of CO 2 and just 7.7 seconds to from 0 to 100 km/h.

To complement its of automatic transmissions, Alfa will also fit the Alfa TCT on the 170 HP 2.0 JTD engine. In this case the teaming of this latest with the Alfa TCT helps the enhance its performance levels and consumption/emissions: acceleration from 0 to 100 drops from 8.0 seconds to 7.9 consumption levels (combined drop from 4.7 l/100 km to 4.5 km while CO2 emission levels record levels for an engine in category, totalling 119 g/km 124 g/km).

The “Alfa TCT” transmission is by a lever with precise and movements, which can be combined shift paddles behind the wheel for a sporty and engaging

In detail, the operation of the “Alfa transmission is distinguished by maximum with the vehicle’s systems. To for the best performance on the road, on the drive conditions and on the driver’s the transmission interacts with the engine control, Alfa DNA StartStop and vehicle stability system.

Thanks to the speed which the parameters are processed, the can modify the speed of gear manage the torque delivery on low roads, and it can operate completely or as a manual sequential gearbox. and produced by FPT – Fiat Powertrain the new “Alfa TCT” device, consists of two gearboxes in parallel, with its own clutch, which the subsequent gear to be selected and while the previous one is still The gear is therefore changed a simple gradual switch of the clutches, guaranteeing continuous delivery and therefore traction.

The is a driving comfort and sporty well above that by conventional automatic transmissions torque converter), as proven by speed of gear shift, the of selecting between manual or mode and a near-zero power during the gear change. In the purchasing, servicing and running are limited, and fuel consumption is thanks also to the implementation of the system, by up to 10% less than a traditional automatic hydraulic

Other peculiar features of the new TCT are its flexibility of application, thanks to the size of its components, and the fact it is a dry twin clutch (the of clutch that guarantees the degree of efficiency in terms of consumption among all automatic

If we compare Dry clutches with oil (Wet) ones, we can safely say the former dissipate energy during the actual slipping of the gear change and on pick-up, wet clutches, which always in an oil bath, introduce losses due to friction such as those of automatic transmissions even they are not in operation.

What’s they require forced with oil and therefore continuous expenditure to drive the dedicated oil (absent in the case of Dry clutches).

A wet transmission also requires 4.8 litres more gearbox oil the dry version, again for reasons of cooling (in this way, is added and losses due to splashing When all these effects are together, a Dry transmission is found to be 6% more efficient than the Wet one in terms of consumption. Last but not the advantages of the dry clutch include the cost and the increased ease of
