Alfa Giulietta JTDM-2 Diesel Goes to the UK

The new Alfa Giulietta with 2.0 JTDM-2 140 bhp second generation MultiJet diesel engine has reached UK shores, with the British division of the automaker also revealing tag prices for the sporty five-door hatchback. Getting straight to the point, the new 2.0 JTDM-2 140 bhp Lusso is priced at £20,750, while the 2.0 JTDM-2 140 bhp Veloce is priced at £22,050.

As a fresh reminder, the new engine delivers 350 Nm (258 lb.ft.) at just 1750 rpm (with the D.N.A. selector in Dynamic position) and 320 Nm (236 lb.ft.) at 1500 rpm (in Normal).

This variant features reduced CO2 emissions and reduced fuel consumption (119 g/km and 62.8 mpg respectively in the combined cycle), a top speed of 127 mph (205 km/h) and acceleration from 0-62 mph in 9 seconds.

“The engine is designed for customers who appreciate excellent throttle response but are also concerned with fuel consumption and running costs. In real terms, with a 13% BIK (Benefit in Kind) rate, 40% tax bracket company car drivers will pay as little as £90 a month in company car tax for the Lusso trim version,” a company statement reads.

The engine is Euro 5 compliant and is equipped with DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) and Start&Stop as standard. Moreover, advanced exhaust gas treatment technologies have been used, namely a close coupled diesel particulate filter and a built-in EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system that improves control of temperature and gas flow.

The automaker also brags the new diesel in the Giulietta range boasts a long servicing interval, thus minimizing work required on the vehicle during its life cycle and cutting its running costs, as it needs servicing every 21,000 miles (33,800 km).
