The Top Gear car review: Alfa Romeo Giulietta Cloverleaf/QV
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
The Giulietta’s cabin is interesting to look at, and in Cloverleaf form is nicely trimmed in smart materials. But it’s not of a comparable quality to the better cars in this class, and there is an impression that things may not last as long as they would in something a bit more, er, German. Another gripe is the absence of a proper place to rest your clutch foot. It’s an oversight that makes distance driving a real pain, sometimes literally.
One boon for the Cloverleaf, however, is those hidden rear doors. You get the practicality of a proper five-door hatch here, but with the attractive coupe-ish profile of a three-door model. So it’s got that Italian style thing sorted…
