Under the bonnet, every engine in the Alfa Giulia range looks decently efficient and pretty clean - which will of course be crucial if it's to attract company car drivers. Euro 6D technology now features. The 2.2-litre JTDM-2 diesel with 160hp manages 57.7mpg on the combined cycle and 129g/km of CO2. For the 190hp version of this engine, the figures are the same. For the 200hp 2.0-litre petrol unit, you're looking at 41.5mpg and 147g/km. For the 280hp petrol powerplant, it's 40.9mpg and 160g/km. Even the 510bhp 2.9-litre BiTurbo petrol engine in the Quadrifoglio version manages 30.7mpg and 212g/km, thanks to its electronically-controlled cylinder-disabling system. In other words, the days of Alfas being money pits for hopeless romantics are long past.
