The latest Alfa Romeo Giulia and Giulietta models have driven Alfa Romeo into the top ten most durable and reliable car brands in a massive survey by leading UK magazine ‘What Car?’.

After surveying more than 18,000 car owners Alfa Romeo recorded a score of 95.5 per cent, putting the Italian brand in eighth place overall for cars between one and four years old. This pitched Alfa Romeo well ahead of the premium German brands normally lauded for their durability and reliability which did not even manage to break into the top 15 over the same period.

"Some people might be surprised to see Alfa Romeo in the top 10, but What Car?'s annual reliability survey has consistently shown that Alfa Romeo builds some of the most dependable cars around," says ‘What Car?’ Editor Steve Huntingford. "Combined with the striking looks and fun handling that its latest models offer, it means you can buy a new Alfa Romeo with your head as well as your heart."

Bought by more than 55,000 people every month in the UK, ‘What Car?’ is dedicated to helping new car buyers make the best possible choice of car, not just when it is sitting in the showroom, but as their annual reliability survey demonstrates, when it is in the hands of its owners years after leaving the showroom. The ‘What Car?’ Reliability Survey gathered data from owners across 31 brands and 159 models, with survey respondents covering an average of nearly 15,000 km a year to complete their detailed survey forms that listed faults, repair costs and warranty claims.

Alfa Romeo was driven into the top ten by the Giulietta and the Giulia, the newly launched Stelvio has not been available for sufficient time to be included in the latest survey. The Giulietta is available in New Zealand in Veloce form with a recommended retail price of $49,990 plus on road costs. The Alfa Romeo Giulia opens its account in New Zealand with an RRP of $69,990 plus on road costs for the 147 kW Giulia Super, while the 206 kW Veloce is priced at an RRP of $84,990, while the barnstorming 375 kW Giulia Quadrifoglio has $144,990 RRP plus on roads.
