Alfa Romeo has launched a dual-clutch automatic transmission for the Giulietta and Mito at the Paris motor show.

The six-speed ’box, called TCT, has been developed in-house at Fiat and uses a pair of dry clutches. It will be showcased at Paris in a Giulietta equipped with the 168bhp 1.4 MultiAir petrol engine. TCT will later be available with the 168bhp 2.0 JTDm model.

See the Paris show pics of the Alfa Giulietta

TCT-equipped Giuliettas will also include stop-start; CO2 emissions in the MultiAir version will be 121g/km.

The gearbox will also be available in the 133bhp 1.4 Mito; this car will be on Alfa’s show stand. The TCT Mito shaves 0.2sec off the manual’s 0-62mph of 8.4sec, while CO2 emissions are cut by 3g/km to 126g/km.

Alfa has also launched a new 138bhp, 258lb ft 2.0 JTDm diesel engine for the Giulietta at the Paris show. The turbodiesel has CO2 emissions of 119g/km and combined economy of 62.8mpg; Alfa is pitching it at the fleet market, as well as private buyers.

Other Alfa show exhibits include the revised 159 saloon and estate, equipped with a newly Euro 5-compliant 134bhp JDTm-2 diesel engine.

I just hope they've engineered it to be reliable. A tall order from Fiat/Alfa? The Volkswagen Group hasn't managed it yet with its DSG box, judging by the correspondence in some of the forums on this site, and look at the head start it's had!

bit of a lazy quote....check out jd power surveys to see how a passat fares in reliabilty before comparing it to an alfa...they are appalling. anyway,cant wait to try a twin clutch alfa....i used to own a abarth stilo with the normal semi auto and it was brilliant( as long as you lifted on up changes,not a huge effort)
