Pushed across country, the Alfa also rides remarkably well, particularly up against the unforgiving nature of the Megane's Cup chassis and optional 19-inch alloys. And it corners with impressively little body roll for a car that doesn't look to have a particularly low centre of gravity and one that certainly isn't sprung unrealistically for the real world.
The steering is good, the gearchange heavy but short and direct, and it stops with assurance. After remarkably few miles, it's easy to see why people will fall in love with the Giulietta Cloverleaf, and why some of them might even buy one.
