Alfa Romeo is in the midst of an incredible return to the U.S. with sporty offerings like the 4C sports car and a just as sporty, but more usable, sedan in the form of the Giulia. The iconic nameplate has been in use since the 1960s and has made a comeback thanks to the automaker’s hopes to become more of a household name. While the Italian automaker has always had a deft hand at making some of the prettiest cars on the road, the Giulia is set as a force to be reckoned with.
Performance. Throughout its entire range, the Giulia sticks out as an enthusiast’s choice. In its base form, the Giulia features a 2.0-L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 276 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine’s power is delivered through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Those looking for supercar-level performance will fall in love with the Giulia Quadrifoglio, which has blistering capabilities. The range-topping model is equipped with a 2.9-L twin-turbo V6 that generates 505 hp and 443 lb.-ft. of torque. The Quadrifoglio model can be fitted with a six-speed manual transmission for drivers that prefer to row their own gears.
The Giulia’s engines aren’t the only thing that the only thing that give the sedan its sporty character, however. Thanks to a new Giorgio rear-drive platform, the Giulia has near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, while its construction features lightweight materials. With power going to the rear wheels or an available all-wheel drive system, along with other high-tech features, the Giulia can provide enthusiasts with a thrilling ride.
Comfort. Unlike its previous vehicles, Alfa Romeo has worked extensively on the Giulia’s interior to pack it with a host of nice touch points, which is the second thing to know about the sedan. It may be a performance vehicle, but the Giulia has a comfortable interior for everyday use. With a 6.5-inch or 8.8-inch screen that displays the infotainment system, as well as a 7-inch TFT display, the Giulia surrounds drivers with high-tech features. Thanks to leather upholstery and a choice of aluminum, carbon fiber, or wood trim, the Giulia is a luxurious sedan comprised of premium comforts.
Grace. While high-performance sedans aren’t recognized for being able to traverse bumpy roads with grace, the Giulia Quadrifoglio features a Chassis Domain Control (CDC) system that adapts the sedan’s suspension to specific driving conditions. An Integrated Braking System (IBS) improves stopping performance and safety. Both features are also available on the Giulia Ti as options.
With its incredible performance, luxurious interior, and grace, the Giulia is a high-performance sedan is not only for enthusiasts, but also for anyone that enjoys a good-looking car that’s fun to drive.
