Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTDM (2014) review: 30 facts and highlights

1. Has front-wheel drive

Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.

2. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
4.5l/100 km
Peugeot 301 Berline (2014): 0l/100 km

3. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
350Nm
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 400Nm

4. longer wheelbase

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
2.63m
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 3.07m

5. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
60l
Kia Rio LX (2015): 73l

6. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

Nissan Leaf Acenta (2014): 0g/km

7. Has ISOFIX/LATCH

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
10.9m
Scion iQ2 (2014): 4.2m

9. shorter length

4.35m
Renault Twizy EV 13kW (2014): 2.34m

10. Has Bluetooth

Honda CR-Z (2014): 1.39m

16. Has a diesel engine

Improvements in diesel engine technology have lead to vast gains in fuel efficiency over petrol (gasoline) cars (and even hybrids), as well as having lower carbon emissions. It is also safer as it doesn't explode as petrol can.

17. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
168hp
BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo 535i (2014): 306hp

18. width

1.8m
Peugeot 208 Allure (2014): 1m

19. lower ground clearance

The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.
113mm
SEAT Altea 1.6 TDI (2014): 66mm

20. greater maximum trailer weight

The maximum weight of a trailer that can be towed by the vehicle.
1.3t
Opel Insignia 5-Door Hatchback: 1.8t

21. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

22. greater power-to-weight ratio

The power-to-weight ratio is a measurement of the performance of a car, based on the amount of power its engine can produce per kg of weight.
93.6hp/kg
Suzuki Alto (2014): 200hp/kg

23. more airbags

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six as some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags and side curtain airbags.
