UK introduction of Alfa TCT transmission

Offering improved performance, efficiency and lower fuel consumption, the innovative twin dry clutch semi-automatic transmission ALFA TCT is now available to order on the five-door Alfa Giulietta hatchback.

Equipped with the next-generation ALFA TCT semi-automatic transmission and optional shift paddles behind the steering wheel, the latest Alfa Giulietta offers a benchmark in its class in terms of performance, fuel consumption and emissions. Available with either the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp petrol (International Engine of Year Award ‘Best New Engine 2010’) or the 2.0 JTDM-2 170 bhp diesel engine, the ALFA TCT range increases the Giulietta’s appeal in both the fleet and consumer sectors.

The sporty credentials of the 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp Giulietta with ALFA TCT transmission result in a car capable of a top speed of 135 mph and 0 to 62 mph time of 7.7 seconds. Even with this performance, the fuel consumption and emissions are 54.3 mpg over a combined cycle and 121 g/km of CO2 and with a BIK rate of 15%.

The values recorded in combination with the 2.0 JTDM-2 170 HP diesel engine compared to the same version with manual gearbox, acceleration from 0 to 62 mph drops from 8.0 seconds to 7.9 seconds, fuel consumption (combined cycle) decreases from 60.1 mpg to 62.8 mpg, while CO2 emissions are 119 g/km (124 g/km with manual gearbox), resulting in a BIK rate of 13%.

Available to order now at Alfa Romeo dealerships – alongside the sporty compact Alfa MiTo 1.4 TB MultiAir 135 bhp ALFA TCT which was launched earlier this year – the Alfa Giulietta 1.4 TB MultiAir 170 bhp ALFA TCT and the 2.0 JTDM-2170 bhp ALFA TCT are available in Lusso and Veloce trim levels, with prices starting from £21,855 OTR.
