November 24, 2015: More than 60 years after the launch of the original Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint – a car famed for both its stunning looks and accessibility – the iconic nameplate is back for 2015.
FCA Australia has announced the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta Sprint will join the local line-up, offering Alfa Romeo buyers a modern take on an Italian classic, and a vehicle with the style, street presence and performance expected of this legendary name plate.
Like the original Giulietta Sprint, the new version is also powered by an engine of less than 1,400cc in capacity, but for 2015 it is equipped with MultiAir valve management and an intercooled turbocharger to boost its power output to more than twice that of the original Sprint’s 1.3-litre twin-cam engine.
The new 1.4-litre MultiAir petrol engine produces 110kW and 250Nm of torque, and can propel the new Giulietta Sprint from 0-100km/h in just 8.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 210km/h, while its combined-cycle fuel efficiency figure is just 5.7L/100km, and its CO2 emissions are just 131g/km.
Based on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Progression, the new Sprint also comes equipped with a number of other unique features, including new 17-inch, five-hole design alloy wheels; special badging on the front fender; carbon-effect door panels and dashboard surround; a sports, leather-wrapped steering wheel with red stitching and new seats with cloth and Alcantara-upholstery, red stitching and “Sprint” logo embroidered into the headrests.
