Alfa Romeo recently announced the availability of their Alfa TCT twin clutch semi-automatic gearbox. The transmission is already available to order for the 5-door hatchback Alfa Giulietta. This option will come with steering paddle shifters.
The gearbox can be linked with either the 170 bhp 1.4TB petrol engine or the 170 bhp 2.0 JTDM-2 that runs on diesel. The gearbox somehow gives the Giulietta a wider appeal for both the consumer sector and fleet segment of the market.

The car returns a fuel rating of 54.3 miles per gallon with 121 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer.elo
The 170bhp 2.0 JTDM-2 that depends on diesel can go form 0 to 100 kph in 7.9 seconds with fuel efficiency of 62.8 mpg and CO2 emission of 119 g/km.
