Having made its world preview at the 2010 Geneva International Motor Show, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta makes its debut and, from May 2010, will be marketed progressively on all the major markets, thus relaunching the make in one of the most hight-priority segments in Europe.
In Alfa Romeo's Centenary year, the name Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a tribute to an automobile and an Alfa Romeo legend. In the Fifties, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta caught the imagination of vehicle enthusiasts throughout the world, making the dream of owning an Alfa Romeo and enjoying its high level of convenience and technical excellence accessible for the first time.
Now the Alfa Romeo Style Centre has manufactured a new Alfa Romeo Giulietta, a 5-door hatchback with an evident Alfa Romeo look and capable of expressing both great agility on the most demanding routes and providing convenience on everyday journeys. This is thanks to the new Compact platform which, thanks to the sophisticated technical solutions employed for the suspension, the dual pinion active steering, the sophisticated materials used and the manufacturing technologies implemented, enables the Alfa Romeo Giulietta to achieve exceptionally high standards both in terms of on-board convenience as well as its dynamic and security features (active and passive).
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta introduces an completely new platform - named Compact - developed to satisfy the most demanding buyers in terms of road-holding, agility and security. It ensures both exceptional dynamic performance and high convenience levels, due to the refined technical solutions employed for the suspension, a new-generation steering system, a light and rigid structure created from materials such as aluminium and high-strength steels, and avant-garde manufacturing techniques.
With the arrival of the 2010 version of the Seat León Cupra, the range's most comprehensive and spectacular vehicle now features even more cool looks due to several components presented on the dashboard and the look, making it the ideal extension of the Seat León that is making phenomenal strides at the WTCC World Touring Vehicle Championship.
The most obvious is the new silhouette, featuring sophisticated, high-tech black honeycomb cooling vents at the front beneath the central grille. The front bumper houses two further black highlights, one at every side, with the word Cupra immediately visible on the left.
The back features a prominent black moulding at the bottom of the bumper, a polished metal oval tailpipe and the characteristic model name in the centre of the hatch.
A side exterior at the Seat León Cupra reveals a lower ground clearance compared to the general León version, making the vehicle exterior and feel more like a racing unit. The spectacular 18 inch rims, eye-catching wheel arches and black encased door mirrors are all distinctive traits of the Seat model.
