Launched in 2010, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a small family car that’s a rival for cars such as the Audi A3, BMW 1 Series and VW Golf.
Distinctive styling is one of its major attractions, with a sleek design that includes rear door handles ‘hidden’ within the window surround. Unlike most rivals it’s available only in five-door hatchback form.
The Giulietta has a mildly sporty character, as befits the Alfa Romeo brand, but it ticks all the sensible boxes too, with a wide range of engines and trims.
There are affordable, frugal options at one end and sporty/luxurious derivatives at the other.
