Used Alfa Romeo Giulietta for sale
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a 5-door family hatchback that possesses stylish looks and a premium-feel interior. If you need something larger than the Mito supermini, but not quite as large as the Giulia saloon, the Giulietta fits the bill very well.
Being a part of one of the most competitive segments there are, the Giulietta faces stiff competition from its rivals. However, it has a range of great features that make it a top contender, such as:
- Various economical engines to choose from
- A range of technology available
- A blend of comfort and performance
- Decent levels of practicality
Discover the benefits of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
You'll be able to find a variety of engines on the used car market when searching for a Giulietta. To make things easier, we've listed the most common below:
- 1.4-litre, 120bhp: 0 to 62mph in 9.4 seconds and up to 45.6mpg.
- 1.4-litre, 170bhp: 0 to 62mph in 7.8 seconds and up to 57.7mpg.
- 1.6-litre, 120bhp: 0 to 62mph in 11.3 seconds and up to 74.3mpg.
- 2.0-litre, 170bhp: 0 to 62mph in 8.0 seconds and up to 62.8mpg.
There are other engines to be found, such as the powerful 1.7-litre, 240bhp petrol powertrain that's found in Veloce specifications, if you're after maximum performance. But for the most part, the Giulietta doesn't exceed in one area of the driving experience. Instead, it offers a good blend of both comfort and performance.
Practicality and Running Costs
Due to its focus on curvaceous styling over practicality, the Giulietta doesn't offer the same amount of interior space as some of its rivals. It does come with five doors however, which makes life easier for rear passengers or when trying to fit a child seat to the ISOFIX mounting points.
Leg and headroom is decent for front passengers, but taller adults may find it a bit of a squeeze when sat in the back. 350 litres of boot space can be used to load luggage, which increases to 1,045 litres when folding down the 60:40 split-folding rear seats.
Starting at group 15 (out of 50), insurance costs are reasonable. Be prepared for this to rise up to group 31 if opting for the higher-powered variants, however. All Evans Halshaw dealerships are well-equipped to take care of any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Matching the Giulietta's exterior styling, the interior also features swooping lines and bold design elements. All cabin controls are fairly easy to use, giving a nice mix of functionality as well as looks.
In terms of technology, the highlight for entry-level specifications is the Uconnect colour touchscreen infotainment system with voice control and smartphone connectivity. Higher specifications get features such as sat nav and a larger touchscreen.
The Giulietta also possesses a variety of available safety features that reassure all occupants whilst out on the road, including:
- Front and rear parking sensors
- Automatic headlights
- Hill-hold assist
- Six airbags (Driver, passenger, front side and window)
- Electronic stability control
Is the Alfa Romeo Giulietta right for me?
When it comes to styling, the Giulietta will be tough to beat thanks to its curvaceous design cues. It's also a fairly decent all-rounder, offering a mix of comfort and performance.
As previously mentioned, competition is fierce. The Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra are common sights on UK roads and are great value for money. If you're working with a bigger budget and fancy something that's more premium, the BMW 1 Series and Volkswagen Golf are an excellent place to start.
