In May 1978 the ti got new engines, a 79 bhp 1,350 cc and a 85 bhp 1,490 cc, both with a twin-choke carburettor. At the same time it received cosmetic updates (bumpers from the Super, new rear spoiler on the boot lid, black wheel arch extensions and black front spoiler) and was upgraded to the revised interior of the Super. The 1.3 and 1.5 engines become soon available alongside the 1.2 on the Giardinetta and Super, with a slightly lower output compared to the sport models due to a single-choke carburettor.

ALFASUD SUPER 1.3 £3,100
Four-door model in the Alfasud range has had a five-speed gearbox as standard for a little more than a year, but recently the size of the lively water-cooled, horizontally-opposed engine has been increased from 1.2 to 1.3 litres. With such a specification the neat saloon has a sports car performance. Made in AlfaRomeo's huge and highly-automated plant in southern Italy, the Alfasud Super has brilliant roadholding and powerful disc brakes on all four wheels. The engine has two overhead camshafts, and front wheel drive is employed. A useful feature is the bootlid release lever in the front of the car—no locking required.
ALFASUD 1.5ti £3,500
Sporting two-door Alfasud now has the option of two larger engines, 1350 and 1500 cc. The 1286 cc engine has been end of prod., but the 1350 cc engined model keeps its '1.3' designation, while the larger-motored version becomes the ti 1.5. The 1350 has three more horsepower than the older model, and a top speed of 102 mph. The 1.5 is good for 106 mph, and in spite of higher gearing has improved acceleration. Higher gearing on both models results in lower fuel consumption and quieter running. The upmarket Alfasud Sprint is also powered by the new 1.5-litre engine, and has increased performance and flexibility.

ALFA ROMEO GIULIETTA £4,550
Just available in Britain, Alfa-Romeo's latest, the Giulietta, revives an old name but is a very modern saloon. The new Giulietta utilises Alfetta suspension and running gear, and the five-speed gearbox, like the Alfetta is rear-mounted to balance weight distribution. Wedge-shaped four-door bodywork assists with high-speed downforce, and the shape lends itself to a deep, capacious luggage boot. In the Alfa-Romeo tradition the light-alloy four-cylinder engine has twin overhead camshafts and is notable for massive torque as well as healthy power-output at high rpm. Seats are luxurious and there is a quartz digital clock.
