In Europe there were 41 candidates and the jury chose the seven nominees (Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Citroën C3/DS3, Dacia Duster, Ford (Grand) C-MAX), Nissan Leaf, Opel Meriva and Volvo S60/V60).

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta is an enthusiast driver's car. It has a 168 hp MultiAir Turbo engine and different driving settings built in to enhance the hold you need for the turns you're in, sport tune option (right in the option package, no extra charge for this) and so on. Bluetooth, NAV, Bose stereo, etc.

I configured a Veloce model, which has some extra things like red stitching in the black leather interior, and it came to about $21,995 in USD. Chrysler is importing the Alfa Romeo Giulietta to America to meet Federal gas mileage standards for 2015. It will be built as a Dodge at Chrysler's Belvidere, IL assembly plant, and go on sale in Nov. 2011. I plan on test driving one for sure. Great little hatchback from Alfa Romeo, said to be by UK car writers to be the best Alfa Romeo in their 100 year history of making Italian sports cars. I have decided that my next car will either be a Scion FR-S or a Dodge Giulietta. Dodge will rename the car something other than Giulietta but it is being written that they will leave the Giulietta body and underpinnings and mechanicals the same. This is going to be nothing short of a great sports car and I don't wanna wait for the next model year for it. I'll only need ta wait till Nov.'11 for it. Chrysler and Fiat are already making great music together, much like the best rock band in history, Foghat.

2011 Alfa Romeo Giulietta
