The 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta competes with cars like the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf in the segment of small family cars. Alfa Romeo has a strong heritage in motorsport and the Giulietta playing this with the experience that focuses on sports rather than being absolute driving comfort. The 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta also more striking appearance than most of its rivals. The 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta has received a number of updates for 2014, including reduced prices, some subtle styling changes, interior updated, revised levels of finish and new engines. The range starts with the basic progression adjustment, which is followed by distinct, unique, and the top of the Nav Sportiva range.
The updated model to create a new version of the 2.0-liter diesel Alfa Romeo, having low emission engine performance improvement and is also quieter inside through better soundproofing. A performance model in the form of the Quadrifoglio Verde is also available.

2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Interior
Although the 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta still can not match the quality interior of the Volkswagen Golf, has been improved for 2014 meant the Giulietta is now a more enjoyable car to sit. Speccing a leather interior for the car, in particular, raise the cabin look and also recommend going to the touchscreen of 6.5 inches, which is an option on all but the top spec model. The 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta interior of the old Giulietta was quiet and the same is true in the revised model. Unfortunately, the cabin is another uncomfortable drag feature.
Alfa 350 liters boot is a reasonable size, being larger than the Ford Focus (316 liters), but smaller than the Volkswagen Golf (380 liters). Although Giulietta are all five-door cars, the rear seat is narrow and legroom is also scarce. There are storage areas dotted around the cabin, but the center armrest cubby and glovebox are both quite small. Even the driver does not escape through a tight pedal box, which means it’s hard to get your feet comfortable.
2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Engine
One side of the entry-level 1.6-liter diesel, which has a number relatively lethargic 11.3 seconds to get from 0-62 mph, there’s really a slow version of the 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta . The basic petrol strip the same feat in 9.4 seconds, while more powerful petrol does in 7.6 seconds. The 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 148bhp diesel gets from 0-62 mph in 8.8 seconds and 173bhp version does it in 7.9 seconds. The powerful diesel engine makes the Giulietta an excellent highway cruiser, but all manage to be good in the city, rural roads down and off the highway. All models get D.N.A. Alfa control switch that lets you change the configuration of the car to change the sensitivity of the accelerator pedal and steering weight.
Alfa recently introduced the Quadrifoglio Verde (QV) Giulietta sport edition, which has a 237bhp engine and gearbox six-speed 4C sports car company, and is the fastest model available in the range. While engine sounds great and means that the car can do 0-62 mph in six seconds, which is still not as entertaining – or more comfortable – to drive as the VW Golf GTI, Seat Leon Cupra, or Focus ST Ford. Given the QV version is also quite expensive, is not a model I recommend.
