Alfa Giulietta diesel 2.0 JTDM-2 140 bhp

02 February 2011

Alfa Giulietta diesel 2.0 JTDM-2

 

The sporty Alfa Giulietta five-door hatchback range has just been boosted by the addition of another ultra frugal yet high performing second generation MultiJet diesel engine.

The new 2.0 JTDM-2 140 bhp is an ideal engine for both company car drivers and private owners requiring low fuel consumption and low running costs combined with driving comfort for long trips.

The new engine is equipped with the latest generation JTDM-2 MultiJet Common Rail system that is already present on the 1.6 JTDM-2 (105 bhp) and the 2.0 JTDM-2 (170 bhp) power units. The system represents the most technologically advanced solution for controlling high injection pressures (around 1600 bar) independently of engine RPM and quantity of fuel injected.

Advanced engine management guarantees particularly smooth engine operation in all situations.

This technology, combined with an electronically controlled variable geometry turbocharger, guarantees excellent torque delivery: 350 Nm at just 1750 rpm (with the D.N.A. selector in Dynamic position) and 320 Nm at 1500 rpm (in Normal) giving it the highest torque in its class compared to similarly efficient and powerful engines.

This new Alfa Romeo Giulietta features reduced CO2 emissions and reduced fuel consumption (119 g/km and 62.8 mpg respectively in the combined cycle), a top speed of 127 mph and acceleration from 0 - 62 mph in 9 seconds. The engine is designed for customers who appreciate excellent throttle response but are also concerned with fuel consumption and running costs. In real terms, with a 13% BIK (Benefit in Kind) rate, 40% tax bracket company car drivers will pay as little as 90 a month in company car tax for the Lusso trim version.

On the theme of environmental respect, the engine is Euro 5 compliant and is equipped with DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) and Start&Stop as standard. Moreover, advanced exhaust gas treatment technologies have been used, namely a close coupled diesel particulate filter and a built-in EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system that improves control of temperature and gas flow, simultaneously guaranteeing lower emissions and reduced fuel consumption.

Lastly, the 2.0 JTDM-2 140 bhp boasts a particularly long servicing interval, thus minimising work required on the vehicle during its life cycle and cutting its running costs. The fact that the car only needs servicing every 21,000 miles is a testament to the high quality levels achieved and the efforts made to improve durability and efficiency even further, by means of careful work on individual components.
