Why You Should ‘Fall’ in Love with the Alfa Romeo Giulia
June is National Safety Month and the car dealership Alfa Romeo of Winter Haven wants to remind residents that their inventory is among the top when it comes to safety.
In its second year of production, the Giulia is already making a name for itself and earning high praise from the auto industry. After being awarded the 2017 Top Safety Pick-Plus from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Giulia was recently named the 2018 Motor Trend’s Car of the Year.
The vehicle comes with a nearly 9 inch screen that has 3D navigation and 14 speakers for its audio system. The Giulia also comes equipped with parking assistance with front and rear sensors to alert the driver when they are too close to an object.
The IIHS reported a designation of “Good” in five crash tests and it received the highest rating in the front crash prevention test.
The decrease in the car’s speed when approaching a collision is assisted by the Driver Assistant Dynamic Plus package, which also includes; safety features of lane departure, warning and automatic high beams. It also has automatic dimming exterior mirrors.
The Giulia is the only Sedan Alfa Romeo offers in the United States. It has a 2.0 liter I-4 engine that has 280 horsepower and has an 8-speed automatic drive with overdrive. The gas tank is 15.3 gallons and gets 25 miles/gallon.
Sticking to the theme of safety, we want to discuss fall prevention. Every year, over 800,000 individuals in the U.S, are hospitalized because of a falling accident.
Whether you are working on a construction site or in the office, you are always susceptible to tripping and falling hazards.
Here are a few tips to consider that might save you a bruised hip or broken leg:
- Always know your surroundings. It never hurts to be mindful of where you are and what is around you. Don’t be distracted on your phone or looking off into the distance. Always watch for loose objects like water bottles and other debris lying on the ground and keep an eye out for wet floor signs.
- If working in construction, there are numerous steps you must take to ensure you do not trip or fall. Besides the fact that many of these steps are required by law through OSHA, you can take it upon yourself to pick up loose cables, plywood, and tools that could cause an accident.
- Lastly, wear the right shoes and make sure they’re tied. It might seem silly or elementary, but we’ve all tripped over our own untied shoelaces before. Tie your shoes correctly and wear the right shoes for the right situation. Flip flops and sandals might be the easiest and quickest to throw on before heading out the door, but walking down the sidewalk or in heavily populated areas is sometimes best for closed-toed shoes.
At Alfa Romeo of Winter Haven, we are all about making sure you are put in the best vehicle possible that fits your needs, but will also keep you safe. They don’t get much safer than the Giulia, and we’re proud to be selling them at our location.
