The facelifted 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulietta will arrive in Australia in October sporting an updated styling and the return to its iconic nameplates, with the range now spanning Super, Super TCT and range-topping Veloce.

The revised front-end includes a new honeycomb grille, piano black bumper inserts (with red highlights on sporty models) and revised headlamp and fog lamp surrounds. There are also two new alloy wheel designs and revised tail pipes.

Alfa says the new look brings the Giulietta’s styling closer to the new Alfa Romeo Giulia. As part of the revision, the Italian brand has also redesigned the car’s badges, including both the “Alfa Romeo” and “Giulietta” logos.
