2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Progression 1.4 review

This review of my 2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4T Progression (manual) is one that will hopefully convince you that I was somewhat logical for making my purchase. My role involves a reasonably long commute and it was one that I may as well have been asleep for prior to my conversion to Alfa ownership...

2003 Alfa Romeo GTv 3.2 V6 24v review

"Did you hit your head on something?" That was the first thing my former boss, a Holden workshop manager, asked me back in August of 2014 when I told him I had bought a car, and showed a picture of a [slightly faded] red 2003 Alfa Romeo GTV V6 that had just come off a car transporter from Queensland that morning. He was not the only one who doubted my mental health that day...

2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCT review

This is a long-term review of my 2016 Veloce. I purchased the car as I have wanted a hot hatch for a while and preferred Italian design over the Golf GTI. I like the exterior design of the Giulietta; it's certainly quite distinctive from other hatches of this genre in my opinion. The interior technology is a bit lacking in comparison to other makes...

1986 Alfa Romeo Sprint review

Full disclosure – I owned this car with my son 11 years ago, and it is no longer in our possession. Recently, I came across this photo and it brought back a flood of memories. I thought I would share. As a parent you kind of hope that one day your children will reward all stress and headaches they give you by taking an interest in your passions...

2008 Alfa Romeo 159 2.2 JTS Ti review

I've been thinking of writing about my most favorite car I have ever owned, but as yet have not done so. A search on a review of a Sonata (a car I no longer have) gives a reason as to why I don't own this car any more. A little background. I like cars. I am surely not the only one, but I believe there are very few who can claim to have done what I have...

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce review

This is an update on the Giulia Veloce that was purchased in June 2017. It has since had its first service and a full update of the engine management and entertainment software. It remains the best-looking car in the sedan universe, and constantly getting looks from men, women, children, adolescents and anyone with an eye for beauty...

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio First Edition review

1983 was the final year of my schooling in a large country town. It was a year with highs and lows. I can remember watching Australia winning the America's Cup at school while we all sung the new national anthem Down Under by Men at Work in unison. In 1983, I asked the new girl out to the flashy twin cinema in my father’s old car, a 1966 220S Mercedes...

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce review

This Giulia Veloce is an upgrade from my Giulietta. It is stylish, smooth, reliable, handles perfectly, sips fuel in Advanced Efficiency mode, and has not skipped a beat since purchase. The seats are super premium and better than in the German opposition. Steering is telepathic and pin sharp. The motor pulls like a train and sounds lusty in Dynamic mode...

2013 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4 review

I deliberated long and hard before purchasing 'the G' as it's become affectionately known. Ideally, I was after something small and stylish that you don't see many of. After traipsing through car yard after car yard of Renaults, Peugeots, Fiats (you get the idea), I settled on a four-year-old 'poverty pack' Giulietta with very low kays...

2012 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTD-M review

At the beginning of 2017, I was in the market for a more modern car to replace my 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero. I do a lot of kilometres each year, so I was looking for a car with relatively low kms on the do that would have excellent fuel economy, would be sporty and be a head-turner. With a budget of under $20,000, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta fit the bill...

2013 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Distinctive review

After over four years of ownership with "G" – Giulietta just doesn't roll of the tongue – I have mixed, but mostly positive, feelings towards one of the most reliable car Alfa's ever produced (up to this point). The Distinctive model was one rung below the proper top of the line hot hatch QV, so with 125kW it wasn't short of power...
