In 2010, after a century of making cars, Alfa Romeo introduced its most pivotal model ever at the Geneva Auto Show. The car they introduced wasn't the premier league 8C Competizione supercar, or the pioneering Fiat 500 microcar, it was in fact the Giulietta. The CEO of Fiat and Chairmen/CEO of the Chrysler Group LLC, Sergio Marchionne hinged the future of the Alfa Romeo badge on the success of the Giulietta, and as the über - international manager has been prone to do in the past with both Fiat and Chrysler, business is once again growing steadily at the Alfa brand as well.

Roughly the same dimensions and in around the same price range as the Volkswagen Golf, the Giulietta is the first vehicle to be based on Fiat's new C-evo platform. This particular platform shares DNA with several Fiat and Chrysler models. However, the Giulietta distinguishes itself visually from any other model comparisons with its pure Italian design magic. The Giulietta is only available as a five-door hatchback, with its radically sloped rear window and rear doors offering inventive handles hidden in the C-pillar trim.
