2020 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Redesign, Specs & Release Date
The FCA business plan talked about an Alfa Romeo Giulietta MCA, but in 2019 only a slight makeover came. Arese has chosen to give precedence to the C-SUV, which will replace the 5-door in terms of positioning and sales 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulietta will be like that, and maybe we’ll see it already at the Geneva Motor Show.
Some images leaked online show the new Giulietta in unusual variations, both in terms of colors and small aesthetic details (front grille, air extractors, and internal coverings) and a welcome return under the hood.
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Specs
It seems that on the New Giulietta will be re-proposed the 2.0-liter JTDM 170 Horsepower with automatic transmission double clutch, this time updated to Euro 6d-Temp anti-pollution regulations. As for the set-ups, the Business, Sport, Super, and Veloce levels were confirmed, with the introduction of a Veloce S at a later date. From the photos leaked online, we also see the new color Verde Visconti currently available exclusively on Alfa Romeo Stelvio. No hybrid or rear-wheel drive, therefore, at least until 2022. The motivations of this choice are incomprehensible to fans they are, in fact, rather solid once analyzed with a cold mind.
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulietta was a highly anticipated car, but unforeseen circumstances and an increasingly difficult market have persuaded the FCA leaders to take a more beaten road. According to the business plan presented by Sergio Marchionne in June 2018, dedicated to the expansion of the brand until 2022, the New Giulietta would have been an MCA (Mild Cycle Action) which, known in Italian, is the proverbial mid-career review.
Not the Giorgio platform revised to offer an entry-level sedan with the rear-wheel-drive then, but a new version with revised sheets and a technical update designed to stay ahead of competitors.
Family feeling with Giulia and Stelvio online and optic groups, infotainment at the height (and ready to work with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and a good endowment of ADAS, necessary at least to reach the 5 stars EuroNCAP and revive product marketing.
Unfortunately, however, in terms of FCA – rightly, if we consider the market shares – for Alfa Romeo there must be a priority: the much talked about C-SUV, ie a Crossover marked by the city guide presented as a close relative of Stelvio.
Hence the painful choice not to focus on development but, rather, to implement a slight restyling similar to what we saw in 2016 when waiting for Giulia, the Biscione designers presented new color variations for Giulietta.
So for now (if the news should be confirmed by the house) Alfa Romeo offers a second light restyling of the car waiting for a real remake after 2022. Always provided that the segment takes back on the now ubiquitous SUV and Crossover.
