Alfa Romeo is launching the new Giulietta to replace its 147 in the heartland hatch. So the new Alfa Giulietta up to some pretty competent such as the VW Golf, Ford and Vauxhall Astra.

What’s on? I thought Alfas were to look great and be terrible to Let’s hope this one better than it looks.

We assume you’re talking the Giulietta’s less than face on this new C-segment Granted, it’s bland and after the chiselled muscularity of the old but we’ve got modern pedestrian legislation to thank for that.

The snout is a grower anyway and the of the shape makes up for it. The chunky quarters mean you need to up from the basic 16in but the rear three-quarter view is fantastic to these eyes.

With just 2.2 turns the stops it’s fast but nervous around the straight and with a realistic build-up of as the cornering speeds rise. And really can rise: the Q2 electronic standard on every single provides a staggering amount of even on rain-drenched tarmac and the control on our sport-equipped car was good.
