Can you tell Alfa-Romeo had to change the name of its 147-replacing Giulietta at the last minute? And yes, this is an official image.

    Would someone with Photoshop skills please graft a Brera front end on this otherwise nice-looking car? I think such a combo would make BMW reconsider its next 3-series.

    Alfa has a fine tradition of offering up an ugly sedan every few years. The 1750 Berlina, and most recently the Milano/75. The new Giulietta breaks with that tradition. Que bella macchina!

    I'm in a crowd of one here, I don't like the styling at all in fact I think it's downright fugly. Especially the front end, it just looks weird to me. This may sell as a niche market vehicle if imported but IMO the styling will stop it dead in its tracks from any semi mainstream sales.

    It's an Alfa - styling can be, umm, controversial. I like it, but I don't think anyone could reasonably argue with someone who hates it. Styling is always subjective...
