Super Alfa Romeo Giulietta
Added: 11th of October 2016
It's an Alfa Romeo Overall excellent car that crosses all socio-economic classes and age groups, unlike the cookie-cutter hatchbacks from other manufacturers. Why go around in a Ford, Vauxhall or one of the VW brand products with high diesel emissions and dubious fuel economy when you can drive an Alfa Romeo? Excellent performance from 1.4 litre engine called MuliAir or something like that. Apparently has a turbocharger. Has a switch called DNA and goes great on D - makes for really safe overtaking, provided you're not so silly as to use up the extra margin it gives you. 39 mpg overall. I can't imagine why some people would buy a diesel and pollute the earth with it when a petrol engine can be so good. Very good 6 speed gearbox, but next one will have those paddle things behind the steering wheel. Clutch not quite as progressive as I would like in stop/start traffic, but super on high throttle launch. Handling and road-holding are more than adequate. If you drive it on the limit on public roads, I hope you lose your licence before you do serious damage to yourself or someone else. Brakes are superb. Really powerful, even and progressive. 10/10 Ergonomic interior. Comfortable seats. Not everybody likes the styling, but I find it very acceptable and better than the Jaguar I owned before. But here is the one big mistake - reflection in the instrument "glass". This is such a silly mistake. Unbelievable this far into the 21st century.
