2015-02-06 08:25:20

A Guilietta Business Edition has been released by Alfa Romeo that is capable of emitting just 104g/km of CO2 whilst offering £2,000 worth of extra equipment for £500 less than the Distinctive trim upon which it is based. The Guilietta Business Edition has been introduced to offer a better value proposition for business and fleet users.

The new Guilietta Business Distinction gets all the equipment you would get with the Distinctive trim, including 16-inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, rear parking sensors, cruise control, DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity and Alfa Romeo’s D.N.A adaptive chassis system. But in addition to all this, it adds a 6.5-inch Uconnect infotainment system with integrated satellite navigation system, electrically operated front seats, front parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, power-folding door mirrors and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

If all that isn’t enough, you can always add the £2,500 premium pack. In exchange for your cash, you get xenon headlamps, a Bose sound system and dual electric sunroofs. Larger 17-inch wheels are available for just £100. A space-saving spare is standard.

Four versions are available.

The entry-level model comes with Alfa’s 1.6-litre JTDM-2 turbocharged-diesel engine producing 105bhp, mated to a 6-speed manual ‘box. It emits just 104g/km of CO2 giving company users a BIK-rate (Benefit-In-Kind) of 16%. The cost is £18,990. Next up is the £20,290 150bhp 2.0-litre diesel that emits 110g/km of CO2 thanks to its 6-speed manual gearbox. Meanwhile the 6-speed TCT dual-clutch 170bhp 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged petrol auto costs £20,810 and generates a rather thrifty 119g/km of CO2 for an 18% BIK-rate. The flagship model is the 175bhp JTDM-2 oil burner, also mated to the TCT auto ‘box at £22,450. It emits 116g/km of CO2.
