2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietta – Click above for high-res image gallery

Romeo & Giulietta. The names go together like gin and tonic. And now, finally, after a quarter century, the star-crossed nameplate has returned. We just got our first look up close here at the Geneva Motor Show, and it's left us hoping – nay, praying – that the sumptuous new hatchback makes it Stateside.

Fortunately there's a glimmer of hope to hold on to. While Fiat/Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne weighs the brand's future, the Giulietta – Italy's assault on the likes of the Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series, but crucially priced closer to a Golf or Focus – may very well be Alfa's last new product for the next while at least. But whether it's meant to tide us over or whet our pallets – or better yet, drive us around our daily grind – the Giulietta looks stylishly up to the task. But don't take our word for it, just ask the leggy redhead swooning alongside take a look in our high-res gallery of live shots from the show floor.

      Nope, not enough buttons. This interior should be stock full of touchscreens and buttons and dials. I just can't deal with spending so much money on a car -- a LUXURY car -- and not getting a nice, fancy interior.

        @Maximalist well said sir.

        Not me, moron.

        One of you other die-hard fans.

        My bad BigDumbFace. Honest mistake. I don't think Audi can say the same for the A8.
        • 4 Years Ago
        And let me see if I can reword what you said, "I can't see spending THAT much on a car-a LUXURY-car, and, pay attention because here's the part that's different, NOT getting it the way I want it.

      Love it. Want it. Please bring it over here, Fiat/Chrysler, ASAP.

      This looks nice, I wish it had a 159-style front rather than the 8C one, the 8C one looks good on the 8C and okay on the Mito, but the 8C look in this isn't nice at all. Interior is a bit too "Black", it needs a bit more colour in it. I hope they replace their 3.2 V6 thats from GM Origin with a Pentastar V6 based one.

      Wrong wheel drive and too many doors.

      I prefer the MiTo

      Beautiful. Alfa knows how to style a car.

      I wish they remembered how to make them drive, and here's hoping this one will be at least as good as, say, a Mazda 3. Been waiting for an Alfa whose drive matched its looks since 1995 and the GTV/Spider.

      Giulietta apparently will be re-branded as a Dodge for the north american market with the 1.4 and possibly 1.7 liter engines to be built at Chrysler's Michigan engine plant in multi-air form for 2012. Alfa underpinings will remain intact. MiTo would also be re- branded as the Dodge Hornet.

      Where is the car? All I see is a hot red head and legs...

        Look up, to your screen. Pull up your pants. And please, for the love of god, wash your hands.

      Sweet exterior, sweeter interior. Home run for Alfa Romeo! Lets hope it drives as good as Ford Focus and Mazda 3. Let alone Golf or 1 Series. It will have a great engine and could be built in the US.

        The idea is that everyone else sees the rear, so the front doesn't matter.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm trying to like it, but that nose is hard to love.
        • 4 Years Ago
        not sure about the 1 series competitor since this is FWD, but boy does that thing look sweet
        wish we'd get it here jsut as is, i'd be willing to give up RWD based on how hot that thing looks

        Also, shows Infiniti how the 2003 G35's headlight update to the G37 shoudl ahve evelved, although for 2011 they did improve them from the 2007-2010 model

      Love Alfa's but REALLY getting tired of seeing them in pictures and not on US roads. Enough with the planning already. I want a new car so get a model or two over here pronto!!!
        • 4 Years Ago
        Agreed. And have them bring the redhead along, too.
