For The Alfa Romeo Giulietta looks great and is available with some good engines. Most versions are well priced and equipped, and running costs should be low.
Against Rear seat space is below average and the cabin quality disappoints. Refinement is another weakness, and while you can adjust the driving characteristics at the flick of a switch, it’s never fun and the ride is firm.

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is a stylish alternative to the class favourites, but it disappoints in too many areas to threaten them.

Target Price team says:
As with any Alfa Romeo, much of the Giulietta’s appeal lies in its distinctive styling. Look beyond that, and it’s competent, but nowhere near class-leading. It’s neither the roomiest small family hatch, nor the best to drive, but it is available with some strong engines.
The entry-level Turismo models are attractively priced, but they miss out on a few desirable items of kit, not least alloy wheels and Bluetooth. You’re better off with Lusso spec, which adds these bits plus a few others. Veloce trim is the sportier, pricier alternative, with different suspension settings and a range of cosmetic upgrades.
If you’re after something really fast, go for the Cloverleaf, which has hot-hatch power and equipment to match. You’ll need deep pockets, however, because it’s rather expensive.
