Alfa Romeo has introduced a new diesel engine to its Giulietta range
3 February 2011

Alfa Romeo has introduced a new diesel engine for its Giulietta range.

The new second-gen MultiJet diesel engine, dubbed 2.0 JTDM-2, produces 138bhp and up to 258lb ft of torque in ‘dynamic’ mode, as opposed to 236lb ft in ‘normal.’

The company claims CO2 emissions of 119 g/km and a fuel economy figure of 62.8mpg, and says it will allow the Giulietta to hit a top speed of 127mph, with a 0-60mph sprint time of nine seconds. This, the company claims, is ‘the engine is designed for customers who appreciate excellent throttle response but are also concerned with fuel consumption and running costs.’

Compliant with Euro 5 regulations, the new unit features start-stop as standard and, according to Alfa Romeo, only needs servicing every 21,000 miles.

Prices for the new 138bhp diesel Giulietta start from £20,750 for the entry-level Lusso variant.
