Stylish alternative to the Golf, but it's nowhere near as roundedget the best price
Entry-level model comes with 16in alloy wheels, air-con, all-round electric windows and a height-adjustable driver’s seat. You also have a 5.0in infotainment touchscreen with a DAB radio and Bluetooth, but you don’t get an alarm or immobiliser.
This 118bhp engine – which comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard - is the entry point to the Giulietta range, but it’s our pick of the petrol engines. It’s keen to rev and sounds good when you do, which suits the Giulietta’s character well, and it keeps down the price. Fuel consumption is no match for most rivals’, however.
