Alfa Romeo Giulietta Celebrates 60th Anniversary
2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta debuted back in September last year at the auto show in Frankfurt, Germany, but little did we know back then that this year the model is actually celebrating its 60th anniversary. 19th of April 1954 was an iconic date in Alfa Romeo's history because at the 36th Turin Motor Show the legendary Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint was revealed to the eyes of world for the first time. By the end of the exhibition more than 700 orders had been taken.
In order to celebrate this success and the special anniversary, the company is entering on the market the Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4 TB Progression that is capable of generating 120 horsepower (88 kW). This special edition can be painted with a Special Lunar Pearl finish, which is the new color included in company's range.
The range of Alfa Romeo Giulietta models has been extensively revised for this year and now feature more technology, including standard Uconnect touch-screen infotainment systems, new engines, redesigned seats and seat's fabrics and leather upholsteries, new colors and improved standard specifications.
At the top of the range stands the Giulietta equipped with the new 2.0 liter JTDM 2 engine. The latter develops 150 horsepower (110 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque, and is equipped with the second-generation MultiJet injection system. This system enhances unit's combustion in all operating conditions, thus delivering better fuel economy.
