Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knee and femurs of both the driver and passenger. Alfa Romeo were able to show that similar protection would be offered to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. The Giulietta scored maximum points in the side barrier impact. In the more severe side pole test, good protection was provided to all body regions except the chest, where protection was adequate. A reactive head restraint (one which moves forward in response to the rearward movement of the occupant) provided good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear impact.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear.

Pedestrian

The Giulietta scored maximum points for the protection offered by the bumper to pedestrians' legs. Marginal protection was provided by the front edge of the bonnet. In most areas likely to be struck by the head of a struck child, the bonnet offered good protection. However, for an adult's head, the bonnet offered poor protection in most areas.

Safety assist

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is standard equipment on all variants, along with a seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats.
