DNA? Nothing to do with the family in an Alfa Romeo…

Italians love family more than EastEnders but the DNA switch in a Giulietta has nothing to do with the relations.

Everycar has to have driving modes these days it seems but the Alfa system was introduced way back in 2008.

Dynamic, normal or all-weather, it’s a neat way of changing the feel of the car at the flick of a switch.

It’s clever but I do long for a car that is one thing or the other – I don’t want to have to think about changing settings mid drive.

Sadly, I think most manufacturers are going this way. I was taught to drive more frugally by not pressing the accelerator so hard.

Now you can get the car to do it for you. I suppose that’s progress..
