Alfa Romeo Giullietta in the flesh – Click above to watch the video

It's rare that teaser ads are anything but that – teasers. Usually, they don't show you the car, last about the length of a sneeze and are created only to virally spin out of control. See here if you're not sure what we're talking about. However, this Alfa Romeo video for its reborn Giullietta is different.

First of all, it clocks in at nearly two minutes long. Second, as you can plainly see above, Alfa shows us the entire car. It's still basically devoid of actual information, much like almost all teaser clips. But hey, you do get a good 90 seconds or so of the very pretty Giullietta. Fine by us. We'll be seeing this car come March at the Geneva Motor Show. Until then, this is probably as good as it's going to get. One more thing: will Fiat bring the Giullietta to the U.S.? Start wishing real hard right now while you make the jump to watch the video.

      This looks nice, but you still gotta fix your links AB

      As a huge Alfa fan, not completely frothing at the mouth, but it is nice, has some nice detailing and is growing on me, albeit slowly. The interior looks like it could be a nice place to be too.

      If / when Alfa does come to the US I don't expect this to be one of their models though, sadly due to the inexplicable aversion Americans have to hatchbacks, especially premium ones. Then again, the Golf, A3, Impreza and Mazda 3 do pretty well, and the higher end Golfs and WRXs are not exactly cheap.

      If this Alfa does come to North America it probably will be AWD, turbo charged and $28 - $35k. I love those rims.

      Beautiful

        That's for sure. I like the lines which are sexy.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Wow, how original. It doesn't look anything like a Subaru lol. Actually, they found a car that makes the WRX look good, which I didn't think was possible.

      I clicked on the picture two times, "after the jump" 1 time and finally got into the post after clicking the title. W T F

      Alfa WRX STI
        • 4 Years Ago
        I was just going to say... The rear looks a LOT like the new Impreza hatch.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I seem to remember that the chief designer for Alfa went to Subaru. That's why the Tribeca has that weird grill.
        • 4 Years Ago
        if the STI looked anywhere near this good i'd ahve one in my garage right now

        but the STI compared to this looks like a POS someone out of China would design and that's a shame since this car will not have anywhere near the performance of the STI

        Maybe Subi needs to hire this guy out of Alfa then we could have the best of both world

      Cool preview video, at least its a better teaser video than most of the teaser images/videos other companies post on the internet where you can't see jack.

      As far as Giulietta is concerned, I don't know, the side profile and especially the rear are very good looking but they front kills it for me, they should have used a modern variation of the current 159. Those bug eye headlights are ruining what is otherwise an excellent design.

        "A hatchback has to be FWD!"
        Not true considering the amount of all wheel drive hatches on the market (WRX, Golf R, Audi S3) which use up even more space than a rwd set up.
        I agree with the point that Alfa craps on about being a passionate company obsessed with dynamics, performance etc and yet they put out nothing but FWD (the 8C is too low volume to count).
        • 4 Years Ago
        Okay - but look at cars like the Focus RS... That has more horsepower than both the S3 and the Golf R and yet, it is FWD only. I agree that it can be AWD, but FWD is just better in these hot hatches! There is no reason to spend the extra weight and money on putting AWD in a car that isn't built for a track or for rallying (it's okay in the WRX, but that was purpose built as a rally car). The only time that the Golf R is going to need it's AWD is during the winter when there is snow and ice.

        Sure there is going to be a marginal grip advantage in having AWD in a hatchback, but it is completely offset by the disadvantages. Especially when you consider what they are used for (A daily driver and an occational sunday blast). Ford chose not to use AWD for the RS simply because they meant that the adverse effects (on interior room, weight and fuel economy) more than outweighed the advantage (handling).

        A "teaser" about a car for which there are already photos? Big whoop.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Please Alfa, just leave the "we're so sporty and passionate and we have so dynamic lines"-talk and only give us RWD.

      *INTENSE BACKGROUND NOISES AND VOICEOVER*

      "...features a spacious boot"


      Ohhhh, INTENSE.

      Anyway, I love the styling on most Alfas, and this thing looks sick. I'll keep dreaming of a US launch....
      • 4 Years Ago
      Mazda 3, only better. Doubt we'll see it in the US any time soon.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I quite like this Alfa Romeo ad, I must admit and not just because the car looks amazing. For me, it stands out from a lot of the other car ads, I think they've gotten very generic. I like the idea of the "inner driver" narrating.
