Stylish alternative to the Golf, but it's nowhere near as rounded

get the best price

The sportier version with larger 18in alloy wheels and a bodykit on the outside, plus part-Alcantara trim on the inside. Luxuries include a 6.5in infotainment system with sat-nav and DAB radio, height-adjustable front seats, power-fold door mirrors and auto lights and wipers.

This 118bhp entry-level unit is our pick of the Giulietta range. Reasonably refined on the move and usefully flexible to offer good real-world pace. CO2 emissions of 99g/km and fuel economy of 74.3mpg are up with the class best. A six-speed gearbox is standard but there’s also the option of a six-speed auto.
