ALFA ROMEO GIULIA NAMED 'SAFEST NEW CAR' AT CARBUYER 'BEST CARS' AWARDS  The new Alfa Romeo Giulia has been named 'Safest New Car' in the Carbuyer 'Best Cars' Awards, adding to the large collection of international prizes already won by the new sports car.

Presented by Carbuyer editor Stuart Milne at an awards event today (30 November) in London, the 'Safest New Car' title came following deliberation from Carbuyer's team of motoring experts, after safety was found to be one of the website's readers' most popular searches.

'The Alfa Romeo Giulia is the long-awaited replacement for the 159 saloon, and with good looks, impressive engines and plenty of interior space, it's certainly been worth the wait,' says Stuart Milne. 'It also scored top marks this year in the Euro NCAP crash tests. It achieved a remarkable 98 per cent score for adult occupant protection, beating cars like the Mercedes E-Class and Volkswagen Tiguan.

'Testers praised the Giulia's structural integrity and the ability of the Autonomous Emergency Braking system to work at higher speeds. With that hugely impressive adult occupant protection score, we've named it our Safest New Car.'

Created by the Alfa Romeo Style Centre, the exciting Giulia is a new expression of the best Italian tradition that combines harmonic proportions, linearity of style, high quality materials and sophisticated aluminium, wood and leather accents. All these are embellished with iconic elements originating in the brand's over 100-year history, the most significant of which is the trefoil, arguably the most famous emblem of Alfa Romeo design.

'Safety is of paramount importance to us at Alfa Romeo, just as it is to our customers, so I am particularly delighted that the experts at Carbuyer have voted the Giulia as their safest car,' says Damien Dally, head of brand, Alfa Romeo UK.

'It's just one more excellent feature of a car that people already love for its looks, style and awesome performance.'

The Alfa Romeo Giulia range starts at £29,180 (OTR) for the 2.0 Turbo Petrol 200hp.
