Alfa Romeo Giulietta -- Click above for high-res image gallery

The Interwebs have discovered some additional snaps of the Geneva Motor Show-bound Alfa Romeo Giulietta. Although there's a full-on rear shot, these are more about details and lighting elements than taking the entire car in. The new hatch won't suffer from any lack of LED's, with an array of four in the headlights and a basket full of them in the rear taillights and third brake light.

Fiat's aims to sell around 100,000 units per year, and with five engine choices on offer at launch, the company is doing its best not to leave any potential customer out. If we're lucky, that pool of potential customers will include Americans that aren't ex-pats... Have a look at what's coming in the gallery of high-res images below.

      Its .... just plain gorgeous. Every bit of it. Interior, exterior, the whole damn thing.

      Italians already brought their designers to Auburn Hills
      • 5 Years Ago
      Simply awesome. I'd hit it in a heartbeat.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You may want to refrain from hitting it, that may damage it.

      Why has nobody combined Italian design with Japanese reliability?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Beats me. But I'd pay someone about $30k if they did so ;-)
        • 5 Years Ago
        They did.

        It is called Subaru SVX.

        ItalDesign shape by Guigiaro. Subaru 200K+ mile reliability. AWD capability.

        Oh, and boxer 6 power that is less expensive to run and maintain than Porsche...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Amen. They better bring this over as an Alfa. Could you imagine what Chrysler would do to this design? Heaven help us.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yeah, it'd be nice if FIAT, under the Alfa Romeo nameplate sold European style hatchbacks aimed at VW/Ford and more conventional but not too dumbed down sedans under the Dodge nameplate on this same platform. I think that might work.

      Bring it!!!

      Dear Acura/Honda],

      Your designs suck; basically, they really aren't as artistic and beautiful as you believe. In fact, if I had to describe them as a smell I'd say it's reminiscent of 'hot arse and goat sex'. To be honest, I don't really know what hot arse and got sex smells like, but I'm sure your designs have the same cues.

      Once again, please take note as to how to design a car,
      VR

      P.S. Mazda and Toyota this applies to you as well.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Simply put, because he's an idiot. Idiots do what idiots know.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Why are you familiar with the smell of goat sex?
        • 5 Years Ago
        @jv2k, and subsequently the ever ignorant Leclerc: It's called read for comprehension. And I quote, 'To be honest, I don't really know what hot arse and got sex smells like, but I'm sure your designs have the same cues.'

        @Mitchell Scott: It's a good looking car, a little feminine, but good looking never-the-less; something Honda/Acura have clearly forgotten how to build.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I love it. I hope Fiat/Chrysler will bring it over
        • 5 Years Ago
        That's an Alfa design element going back to the 60s. You might as well ask BMW to drop the kidney grill or Bugatti the horseshoe.
        • 5 Years Ago
        ...as an Alfa Romeo.
      • 5 Years Ago
      BRING IT TO AMERICA!!! This thing is so incredibly sensuous and just great looking. If the reliability isn't as terrible as everyone makes it out to be then it will definitely find a home here.

      Any idea where the USD price range would be?

      Alfa to Audi - "We see your two cool LED running lights and raise two even cooler LED taillights."
        • 5 Years Ago
        Audi didn't invent LED DRLs. It's the new EU legislation, thus all new cars will get them.
        • 5 Years Ago
        seriously, has anyone seen the new Land Rover commercials? They have LED light in their headlamp housings now as well...pretty lame that its a look that is now being extorted just like my favorite black on black paint/rim scheme. first time I ever saw it was either on a Audi or Porsche everything else just looks bad
      • 5 Years Ago
      love it

      not only best looking in it's class, but one of the best looking vehicles out there
        • 5 Years Ago
        I don't know about best out there...

        but I am no fan of boxy 5-doors. Don't like the Impreza 5-door, not a fan of the Mazda 3 5-door... A3 looks like a wagon, like a 5-door should, but not as much as A4 Avant.

        But this 5-door... I actually like. I'd like it even more as a three-door with an even more raked rear glass...

        The front could use a bit more something... I kinda wish it had a variant of 159's front end. with the round lighting fixtures in a horizontal grille element. That is more classically Alfa, anyway.

        There is just too much plastic between the V-shaped grille, and the ovoid headlights. It makes the headlights look too small and bug-eyed, and the front end a bit too blank.
