From fashion to furnishing, Italian design is on point in every way. The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a true statement maker. It has a presence unlike any other car in its class and it power is superior.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is the perfect balance of heritage, speed and beauty. It the highest expression of Italian style in the automotive world. The fabulous proportions are based on the technical architecture of the entire car. For this Alfa Romeo design the key elements were the weight balance and rear wheel drive. In order to balance the weights perfectly, the engine and the mechanical parts are arranged between the two axles. The Giulia has very short overhangs, a long hood and front wings. Its retracted passenger compartment “settled” on the drive wheels and muscular rear wings visually mark the point where power is unleashed onto the road.
All this translates into a very generous wheelbase, the longest in its category, contained in one of the most compact bodies. These proportions draw the dynamic shape of an ellipsis in plan view. In addition, the rounded angles and the enveloping pillars convey momentum to the car creating a “drop-shaped” profile, which is reminiscent of one of the most beautiful cars ever made, the Giulietta Sprint.
Passenger space is impressive, with enough room to fit one tall adult behind another with knee room to spare and up front there’s ample headroom. Giulia boasts a strong identity, drawn in few simple strokes: a line gouged along the sides which marks the doors and envelops the handles and naturally, the legendary trefoil nose, possibly the most famous and recognizable style element in automotive history.
Alfa Romeo Giulia models feature an all-new, all-aluminum, 2.0-liter, direct-injection turbo engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers a class-leading, standard 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque, allowing it to launch from 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 149 mph, but the Giulia Quadrifoglio with its best-in-class 505 horsepower, 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.8 seconds and a record-setting 7:32 lap time around the legendary Nürburgring is the fastest ever by a four-door production sedan and is impressive beyond expectations.
Giulia is changing the way you look at cars in this segment leather seats, dual exhaust tips, and a flat-bottomed steering wheel, are standard, while all-wheel drive is optional. The information and entertainment system is displayed on a 6.5-inch or optional 8.8-inch display and high-tech features like adaptive cruise control are also available. Alfa Romeo.
