2019 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Gets Minor Updates, Six New Packages

Alfa Romeo announced several special edition models for the Geneva Motor Show, including a couple for the aging Giulietta sub-compact.

As it turns out, though, Alfa Romeo has more new stuff in store for its compact hatchback as the Giulietta will see some styling and equipment updates for the 2019 model year.

Those who expected big design tweaks will likely be disappointed. New for 2019MY are the Visconti Green exterior paint, new 18-inch alloys, and special upholstery. Alfa Romeo has also reshuffled the range into five trim levels: Giulietta, Giulietta Super, Giulietta Sport, Giulietta Executive, and Giulietta Veloce.

Additionally, there are six accessory packages that further individualize the Italian hatchback labeled Business Pack, Convenience Pack, Carbon Look Pack, Red Racing Pack, Yellow Racing Pack, and Tech Pack.

All the engines in the lineup now comply with the Euro 6d-TEMP standard. The range includes a 1.4-liter turbocharged gasoline four that makes 120 PS (118 hp), a 1.6-liter Multijet turbodiesel that delivers the same power output, and a 2.0-liter Multijet turbodiesel rated at 170 PS (168 hp). The latter replaces the 1.75-liter turbo gasoline unit in the Giulietta Veloce.

The range-topping engine comes equipped with an Alfa TCT six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as standard, while the lower-powered diesel offers the auto as an option. The driver can modify the TCT transmission shifting logics using the Alfa DNA driving mode selector which also adjusts the car’s engine response, brakes, Alfa Q2 electronic self-locking differential, ESC control system and the ASR traction control.

    Typical FCA…

  • sidewaysspin

    This car is older than most dinosaurs now, but still relatively interesting.

  • StrangerGP

    I wonder who still buys Giuliettas outside of the loyal Italian customers. It’s 1 full generation behind some compacts.

  • Bash

    I’m not sure about that face lift though, kinda one step back instead of moving forward.

  • Michelin

    My son since 2014 has a red Giulietta Multijet 1.6 and he is very happy about this car. He’s friends bought Golfs and Audis, more expensive, and now they drive the old models. The red Giulietta is still actual and good looking car.
    No expensive, no issues, reliable and good performances.

    • dj_aris

      I can confirm the reliability part since I own one from 2010. And I’m also very happy.

  • Paulbe

    ten years since release. Still looks good, but getting old in a competitive marketplace.

  • Lee lee

    No new models for 2019 – just more crappy “special editions” of Stelvio and Giulia. How sad for Giulietta, already almost 10 year design gets a new paint colour and wheels, and … err thats about it.

    Alfa, where the F is the new metal promised for Geneva ? You do know the Germans are laughing at you ? especially as you are wasting a ton of money getting back into F1 to achieve next to f all results, when you should be investing to bring NEW models as per your plan to market.

    Bye bye Alfa in a few years time, its only hope is to be bought by the Germans – FCA are fing useless.

    • Belthronding

      fca management is a joke ain’t funny

    • Matt

      Guess you missed their new SUV concept that’s going into production?

      • Lee lee

        No I didn’t – check the date I wrote the comment, days before they announced the Tonale concept at Geneva. Maybe with some luck it will be available for first customer orders by spring 2020. Thats assuming FCA don’t get cold feet and pull it.

  • designer_dick

    Still sells better than the Giulia does in Europe.

    • LeStori

      Reason why they need a new Giulietta. The VW golf, its competitor, is a big VW seller in Europe. Not everyone needs or wants a hatch back ,bloated and on stilts. Aka an SUV.

  • Romain AA

    there’s nothing really Alfaesque in this any longer. just move on, Alfa, and get back to your true self already

  • carlbolt

    That engine is so weak. a 1.4 L turbo only generates 118 HP, What a shame!
    and why change the name from Multiair to Multijet?

    • europeon

      Wow… Are you for real or it’s just a bad attempt at trolling?

      That engine comes in various states of tune for tax purposes in different countries, from 100 to 170 hp.
      Multiair is the name for petrol engines, Multijet is for diesels.

      • carlbolt

        First of all, if you can’t come up other words than “trolling”, just shut up! This word is the most abused word on internet.
        Second, “that engine … from 100 to 170 hp”, you sound like there is one engine, but they mentioned three engines, make you stuff clear before typing.

        • LeStori

          Obvioulsy you have not driven an Alfa Romeo… the engines pull harder than the specs tell.

        • europeon

          You really have no business in the comment section of a car site.

  • Mike Gonzalez

    can this car rest in peace already!? I bet it’s not even selling decently in Italy

  • LeStori

    Looks like the Barbarians have arrived. That dash looks dreadful.

  • DM

    All I see is a Fiat interior with an Alfa badge stuck on the steering wheel. Shame, since the exterior design is still pretty. I sat in one a couple of months ago and honestly felt nothing. On the other side when I had the luck to see a Brera in person, it was beautiful.
