Giulietta Cloverleaf vs Megane RenaultSport
Can France and Italy offer credible alternatives to German hot hatchery? There’s only one way to find out...

Alfa has equipped the Giulietta Cloverleaf with the same ‘DNA' system that it debuted on the MiTo, with Dynamic, Normal and All-Weather settings varying the throttle response and degrees of intervention from the car's VDC safety system. The most immediate and significant change when you flick the car into ‘D' is a super-fast reaction to your right foot. The Cloverleaf is reborn, surging forwards in-gear and scrabbling for grip out of junctions. This is the stuff of proper hot-hatch madness, a soupçon of insanity that you can dial in or out at the flick of a switch.
