Starting off with the 16” alloy wheels that are already there along with dual-zone climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors, DAB digital radio and Bluetooth connectivity, you can add a 6.5” Uconnect™ infotainment system upgrade (which features voice-programmable satellite navigation with 3D mapping), a Visibility Pack (made up of dusk and rain sensors, a self-dimming rear-view interior mirror and power folding door mirrors), front seat electric lumbar support, front parking sensors and metallic or special paint at no extra cost – and that gives you the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Business Edition.
There are four, tax-friendly, low-CO2 engines available with the new model: 3 diesel and one petrol.
With both engines offering six-speed manual transmissions, the 1.6-litre JTDM-2 turbo-diesel 105hp engine has a combined economy fuel economy of just 70.6 mpg, CO2 emissions of just 104g/km, and a Benefit-In-Kind (BIK) Rate of 16%: and the new 2.0-litre JTDM-2 turbo-diesel 150hp 67.3mpg, 110g/km and 18% equivalent. And then the 2.0-litre JTDM-2 turbo-diesel 175hp, offering CO2 emissions of 116g/km, Combined Economy of 64.2 mpg and a BIK Rate of 18%, does so with Alfa Romeo’s six-speed ALFA TCT twin dry-clutch transmission.
Petrol-wise, again with the six-speed ALFA TCT twin dry-clutch transmission, there is the 1.4 Turbo Petrol 170hp engine which has CO2 emissions of 119g/km, Combined Economy of 55.4mpg and a BIK Rate of 18%.
