Turin, 25 February 2015: With the new Collezione version on display in Geneva, which will be ready for sale on Europe’s markets in April, Alfa Romeo Giulietta confirms its lead role in this segment.
The new Collezione outfitting is set up as top of the range: it is intended for demanding and elegant clients who are attentive to detail and looking for a distinctive look that is no less “substantial” in terms of its standard kit and efficient and performative technical characteristics.
The new Giulietta Collezione features black wing-mirrors and 17″ alloy spoke wheels (special 18″ alloy rims with burnished finishing available upon request). For an extra touch of elegance and distinctiveness, upon request, the Giulietta Collezione is also available with a contrasting black sunroof for a perfect color matching with rims and caps.
Attention to detail and premium-grade materials – the hallmark of Made-in-Italy styling – are on full display in the elegant, dark interior, with the added appeal of new dual-chrome (black and grey) high-quality leather seating with contrasting stitching, and grey satin-chrome features on the dashboard, door panels and central tunnel.
The new Giulietta Collezione is well-appointed with a standard kit of 6 airbags, the Alfa DNA device (with Q2 and DST electronic differential), the new ESC (inclusive of ASR and Hill Holder), fog lights and tyre pressure sensor. As always, the standard kit comes with dual-zone automatic temperature control for optimal comfort, electric rear windows, touch screen radio with CD/MP3 and a dual tuner function, leather-clad steering wheel with radio controls, front and rear arm-rests, lumbar-adjustable front seats, electrically foldable wing-mirrors, rear parking sensors, electro-chrome rear-view mirror, and rain and twilight sensors.
The special Collezione version also features the new Bluetooth-enabled multi-medial Uconnect device with an integrated 5″ touchscreen (6.5″ upon request), Aux-in port, USB port and voice commands. The 6.5″ device also features SatNav with 3D maps, progress indicator, and the ‘One Step Voice entry Destination’ function to enter an address vocally. Both systems have been developed in collaboration with top-of-the-range partners such as Harman and Here Auto for the 6.5″ UConnect device and Continental for the 5″ UConnect.
The new turbodiesel Multijet second generation 1.6 JTDM 120 bhp Euro 6 engine debuts on the Collection outfitting: the perfect combination of performance, fuel saving and respect for the environment. It reaches 100 km/h in 10.2 seconds with a consumption of 3.9 l/100 km and only 103 g/km of CO2 in the combined cycle (3.8 l/100 km and 99 g/km of CO2 with low rolling resistance tires).
Other four engine types are available: second-generation turbo-diesel Multijet, 2.0 JTDM 150 HP and 2.0 JTDM 175 HP, the latter exclusively with Alfa TCT dual-clutch transmission, and the turbo petrol 1.4 MultiAir 120 and 170 HP, the latter also exclusively with Alfa TCT.
The Giulietta Collezione on display in Geneva is anthracite grey and sports the scintillating 2.0 JTDM 175 HP engine with dual-clutch Alfa TCT transmission which reaches 219 km/h top speed, 7.8 seconds acceleration 0-100 km/h, 4.4 l/100km of fuel consumption and 116 g/km of CO2 (combined cycle).
