Alfa Romeo Giulietta and MiTo To Get Dual Clutch

Alfa Romeo’s Giulietta and MiTo hatchbacks will get an all-new, in house dual clutch gearbox, known as the TCT, which will be unveiled at this month’s Paris Auto Show.

The TCT gearbox will initially be available with the 1.4L Multiair engine making 168 horsepower, followed by the 2.0L diesel outputting the same amount of power. The TCT will also feature a new stop-start system designed to cut down on emissions. The diesel engine will also be unveiled alongside the TCT gearbox and is aimed at the fleet market. With 138 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, the new 2.0L oil burner will be able to get 62 mpg combined, leaving us wondering when it will make its way to a Chrysler product.
