Alfa Romeo has put a refreshed version of its Giulietta hatch on sale, boasting styling and specification changes and a new engine/transmission option.

The latter sees the 120hp 1.6-litre Multijet turbo diesel engine now offered with the Alfa TCT twin dry-clutch transmission. The combination produces a 0-62mph time of about ten seconds and a top speed of 121mph, while returning official combined-cycle fuel economy of 74mpg and a 99g/km CO2 emissions level, putting the car in zero road tax territory.

Styling changes include a new honeycomb grille, piano black or red detail panels, revisions to the head and fog lamp surrounds, new alloy wheel designs, changes to the exhaust tailpipes and the addition of Alfa White and Lipari Grey to the exterior colour choices.

Inside the seat upholsteries and dash and door panel trim have all been revised, the trip computer display updated and a Uconnect infotainment system added, offering live services such as music streaming, traffic updates and social media connectivity through a smartphone.

Five trim levels are available in the new Giulietta range across four petrol and three diesel engines, at prices ranging from £18,450 to £28,480.
