Alfa Romeo Launch a Giulietta for Business Drivers
NEW ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA BUSINESS EDITION LAUNCHED IN THE UKThe Alfa Romeo Giulietta has always been well thought of in the Business World, but Alfa Romeo has taken that one step further by introducing the Giulietta Business Edition to the fold. The new car is based on the already well-equipped, mid-range Distinctive trim level but finds itself with a stackload of additional features – and not just periphery features; ones that are really useful to drivers and that are already essential equipment for the discerning user.
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%.
