Giulietta ushers in a new era for petrol engines: it is the first car in the world to be powered by engines with the revolutionary MultiAir technology.
The 1.4 Turbo MultiAir 170 bhp (125kW) was awarded the prestigious "International Best New Engine of the Year" award at the 2010 edition of the International Engine of the Year competition. It is equipped with Start&Stop and Gear Shift Indicator as standard and guarantees:
- Better performance
- Lower fuel consumption
- Lower CO2 emissions
- Instant and dynamic fuel management
ALFA TCT: Comfort, driving pleasure, efficiency.
ALFA TCT (Twin Clutch Transmission) is a 6-speed semi-automatic gearbox with two clutches from Alfa Romeo.
Available on MiTo and Giulietta, its sophisticated technology ensures continuous torque delivery and traction without loss of power while shifting.
From the technical point of view, the device consists of two gearboxes in parallel, each with its own clutch, which allows the selection and engagement of the next gear while the previous one is still engaged. Shifting is simply obtained by gradually switching the corresponding clutches, guaranteeing continuous torque delivery and therefore traction.
ALFA TCT interacts with all the electronic systems fitted on the car. ALFA TCT continuously “dialogues” with the Alfa D.N.A. selector for better behaviour on the road according to current conditions and driving style and consequently with the:
- braking system
- steering system
- engine management control unit
- stability control system
ALFA TCT is always combined with the Start&Stop system. This technology allows a further decrease in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
ALFA TCT can be used in automatic or sequential mode according to whether the driver wants a more comfortable or sporty driving experience. In sequential mode, gears are shifted by moving the gear stick to the UP and DOWN positions or by means of controls on the steering wheel (optional).
The standard equipment of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta includes state-of-the-art electronic systems for dynamic control and safety. The advanced MacPherson front suspension and MULTILINK rear suspension have been designed to provide perfect balance even at the limit.
Furthermore, the Giulietta ensures the best driving conditions at all times using the Alfa D.N.A. selector which selects three driving modes: Dynamic, Normal and All Weather.
All these systems guarantee genuine Alfa Romeo driving safety, vehicle traction and performance. The Giulietta suspension system expresses its dual spirit: sporty and entertaining, yet dominable and comfortable.
The system allows the car's personality to be adapted to the needs of the driver and different road conditions
When the selector is in DYNAMIC position, the car's performance is exactly as you would expect from the sporting spirit of any Alfa Romeo: the engine response is immediate, delivery is substantial due to the overboost, while the Electronic Q2 differential allows corners to be tackled in complete safety
With the selector set to NORMAL, even everyday driving becomes more fun, guaranteeing a comfortable, smooth drive at all times. Fuel consumption will be reduced to the minimum.
In ALL WEATHER mode, the Giulietta girds itself to face the most difficult grip conditions, alerting all its active safety systems, including the VDC and Electronic Q2. The engine response will become more gradual and controlled.
This device, which can be turned on and off at all times by the driver, automatically stops and starts the car when at a standstill in town traffic to reduce fuel consumption, harmful emissions and sound pollution.
