The Giulietta is Alfa's vanguard in pursue of better efficiency and technological advancements.
While the marque has been less consistent lately, to some extent, in churning out cars for the masses, it has not been completely off the radar. Not too long ago its supercar 8C left countless in awe, inviting an equal amount of debates on its controversial styling.
Latest in its stable is the Giulietta, meant to replace the long-overdue 147. We sample the hatchback to see if it is better late than never.
Alfa's latest takes on a more spherical outlook, with more rounded edges overall. There is also a slight tinge of shadowing from its supercar stablemate - the 8C. Credit where it is due, Alfa Romeo is one of the few marques which can put off a non-symmetry appearance on its offerings. Essentially, it is also the 'lopsided' front end that best presents the car's character.
Arguably, the hatchback isn't as pretty as its end-of-production stablemate (the 159). That is not to say the latest offering from Alfa Romeo is any less stylish.
