Alfa Romeo Junior’s Triple Threat: Hybrid, Electric, and Veloce Models Face-Off



Alfa Romeo Junior: A Trio of Powertrains – Hybrid, Electric, and Veloce Compared

The trio of engines offers distinct personalities for the compact SUV

The latest Alfa Romeo Junior can be described as a vehicle with multiple personas due to its trio of available powertrains at launch. The variations in engineering, power output, and overall driving dynamics are significant enough to set one Junior apart from its siblings.

To grasp the subtle and more evident distinctions between them, we've opted to conduct a swift comparison on paper to discern which model is the most fitting for each driver.

Alfa Romeo Junior Hybrid

Let's start with the Alfa Romeo Junior Hybrid, also known as the Ibrida. This model is equipped with a mild-hybrid 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine with 48 volts and 136 horsepower. It also boasts an electrified 6-speed dual-clutch transmission, eDCT, and has the fastest top speed in the lineup: 206 km/h. The other two electric variants of the Junior can reach top speeds of 150 km/h and 200 km/h respectively.

Like its electric counterparts, the Junior Hybrid features front-wheel drive and measures 4.17 meters in length and 1.78 meters in width. However, it stands out with a wheelbase of 2.55 meters, slightly shorter than the 2.56 meters of the electric models, and it also has a height of 1.53 meters.

The Junior Veloce, equipped with a powerful 280 horsepower electric motor, features a more athletic setup and has been lowered by 25 millimeters, consequently reducing its overall height.

Another feature that sets the Alfa Romeo Junior Hybrid apart from the two electric models is the boot capacity, which for the Ibrida ranges from 415 to 1,280 liters, compared to the 400 to 1,265 liters offered by the electric vehicles. This slight reduction in space can also be attributed to the presence of the 51 kWh traction battery.

The Junior Hybrid comes with two different grill options. The standard model features the 'Leggenda' badge, showcasing the Alfa Romeo name in italic lettering, whereas the premium version boasts the 'Progresso' badge, which offers a contemporary take on the traditional Alfa Romeo logo. This hybrid vehicle comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels.

Size Comparison

The Electric Alfa Romeo Junior with 156 Horsepower

Let's focus on the electric Alfa Romeo Junior, a 156 horsepower entry-level model with a combined WLTP range of up to 410 kilometers. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9 seconds, which is quite close to the 8.9 seconds acceleration time of the Junior Hybrid.

The electric model's performance weight is a contributing factor, as it tips the scales at 1,545 kilograms compared to the hybrid model's 1,305 kilograms, marking an increase of 240 kilograms. Additionally, there have been modifications to the size of the rear brake discs, which have expanded from 249×10 millimeters to 268×12 millimeters. However, the front discs remain the same size at 302×26 millimeters.

Electric Alfa Romeo Junior, the interior

When selecting an electric car, customers have the option to choose between the "Legend" and the "Progresso" grill styles, depending on whether they opt for the standard model or the special edition. Additionally, the Electric Junior model comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels.

Power and Performance Comparison

The Alfa Romeo Junior Veloce Packs 280 Horsepower

Wrapping it up, we delve into the Alfa Romeo Junior Veloce, the most powerful and dynamic electric model of the lineup. This version boasts an electric motor amped up to 280 horsepower and 345 Nm of torque, alongside a cutting-edge mechanical limited-slip differential – an evolution of the Alfa 147 Q2's differential from 2006. It's also equipped with 20-inch wheels, front brake discs measuring 382×32 mm, a front-specific stabilizer, and a unique torsion bar at the rear. By the way, "Veloce" translates from Italian as "fast".

Alfa Romeo's Younger High-Speed Model

Indeed appropriate: The outcome is a speed exceeding 100 km/h and an acceleration time from 0 to 100 in a mere 5.9 seconds, despite the vehicle's unladen weight hitting 1,590 kg. In this instance, the combined electric WLTP range is 334 km.

The specifics of the 20-inch rims

The steering ratio on the 280 horsepower Junior Veloce has been made more direct, decreasing from 15.8:1 to 14.6:1. Exclusively featuring the "Progresso" front shield, this model distinguishes itself with a two-tone paint job and striking Corsa seats upholstered in black and red suede.
