Alfa Romeo Giulia is a compact executive car produced by the Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo. It was premiered in June 2015, with market launch scheduled for February 2016, and it is the first D-segment offering by Alfa Romeo after the production of the 159 ended in 2011. The Giulia is also the first high volume production Alfa Romeo in over two decades to use a longitudinal engined rear-wheel drive platform, since the 75 was discontinued in 1992.
Alfa Romeo Giulia review
The Alfa Romeo Giulia, in ordinary 2.2 MultiJet 180 Super form is less exciting than the 503bhp Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio already tested, but rather more relevant because this 2.2-litre diesel Giulia is the one almost everyone will buy. Initially the Giulia is quite annoying, progressing upon further acquaintance to really rather encouraging. The irritation stems from a raft of superficially minor issues that still contrive to diminish your enjoyment of the car.
Shifting the Balance of Power
The all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is more than a showcase for the best power-to-weight ratio in its class with a near 7 lbs/hp it’s a study in how to use that power. A body in high-strength steel, fenders and doors in aluminum, a carbon fiber hood, roof and driveshaft, available front seat frames and aerodynamic appendices work in conjunction with the patented all-aluminum suspension to create a near perfect balance.
Intelligence in every move
The Giulia Quadrifoglio is the only sedan in the world to be equipped with an active aero front splitter. This adjustable carbon fiber spoiler is integrated into the front lower fascia. Sophisticated and electronically controlled, it dynamically balances and adjusts overall downforce. On straights, the splitter is closed to minimize resistance and drag. On corners — or when braking — it opens up to provide up to 220 pounds of downforce for optimum balance.
Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Bellissimo
Quadrifoglio is that four-leaf clover on the side of Giulia; Giulia is the compact performance sedan unleashed for the first time ever on American pavement, meant to re-establish the Italian brand as a premier performance player. The tracks in our area were closed for the season and it’s probably a good thing: It would have taken more than a day to negotiate the balance between Giulia’s startling power and sensitive temperament.
2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio – Driven
Alfa Romeo is making its grand entrance with the Giulia Quadrifoglio, otherwise called the Giulia QV. Rather than introducing the high-powered variant after the high-volume sedan, Alfa is putting its best foot forward. The Giulia QV is hitting dealerships early in 2017 while the standard Giulia sedan arrives a bit later. Alfa is currently expanding its nationwide dealership network from roughly 86 in 2014 to more than 200 by early 2017. The stand-alone showrooms and service centers will carry both Alfa Romeo and Fiat brands.
2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia
Alfa Romeo is offering U.S. customers two engines when the car goes on sale early next year. We’re told a few 505-hp Giulia Quadrifoglios might be sold before the end of the year to some lucky early adopters . What really sets the Alfa Romeo apart from the competition is its steering. A quick, 11.8:1-ratio rack translates to 2.3 turns lock-to-lock, and even better than the responsiveness is the intuitive feedback and road feel. But at least the Giulia, unlike the Maserati Ghibli and the Fiat 124 Spider, has prescription-strength Italian-ness right where you want it: at your fingertips and under the hood.
