The Alfa Romeo 147 has done its duty very well for the Italian automaker so now it is time for a replacement. The replacement model of the Alfa Romeo 147 should have been unveiled today but the unveiling ceremony was postponed at the last moment due to a conflict with the people from Milano working for Alfa Romeo. Because of this conflict, rumors claim that Alfa Romeo decided to ditch the planned nametag of Milano, and go for the Giulietta nametag instead. Until things are solved and Alfa Romeo will come out with some official photos and details, we will tell you what reliable rumors claim about the new sporty compact five door hatchback. We are hoping that the conflict is solved soon and Alfa Romeo will be able to go on with their plans.
The world debut of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta will take during the 2010 Geneva Auto Show while the European market sales are expected to start in the spring of the next year, soon after the Geneva Show. The Alfa Romeo Giulietta will have serious competition in the premium hatchback segment. To be more precisely, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta will most likely compete against cars like the Seat Leon , the BMW 1-Series or the Audi A3.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta will be slightly wider, longer and taller in comparison to the current Alfa Romeo 147. More precisely, the new sporty compact hatchback from the Italian automaker has a wheelbase of 2630 millimeters, a length of 4350 millimeters, a width of 1800 millimeters and a height of 1460 millimeters.
In terms of performance, it seems that the Alfa Romeo Giulietta will get its power from no less than four turbocharged four cylinder petrol and diesel engines, including a 2.0 liter JTDM diesel capable of developing 170 horsepower, a 1.6 liter JTDM diesel engine capable of developing 105 horsepower, a 1.4 liter turbocharged MultiAir petrol engine capable of developing 170 horsepower and a 1.4 liter turbocharged petrol engine capable of developing 120 horsepower.
An Alfa Romeo Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde (which means four leaf clover) version, powered by a 1.7 liter four cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that has an output of 235 horsepower, is expected to be launched sometime in the second half of 2010.
