Alfa Romeo has announced plans to introduce an updated Giulietta at the Paris Motor Show.

While the styling remains unchanged, the biggest addition is a twin-clutch transmission. Dubbed TCT, the gearbox "guarantees driving comfort and a sporty feeling well above those offered by conventional automatic transmissions, but also improved efficiency and lower consumption levels." It will be available on the 1.4-liter MultiAir and the new 2.0-liter JTDM.

Speaking of the JTDM, it produces 140 PS (103 kW / 138 hp) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque. Performance figures weren't released, but combined fuel consumption is 4.5 liters/100 km (52 mpg US) and C02 emissions are 119 g/km.
