Alfa Romeo has chosen the 2016 Geneva Motor Show to reveal the non-performance versions of its new Giulia sedan.
So far, the brand has only shown the high performance Quadrifoglio version, which packs a 505-horsepower twin-turbo V6 built by Ferrari. In Geneva, Alfa is expected to roll out two new engines for the car, a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine and a 2.2-liter diesel engine, the latter of which isn’t likely to arrive in the U.S.
The direct-injected 2.0-liter turbo is expected to be offered with three different power output options: 180 hp, 250 hp and 330 hp.
The Giulia has faced ongoing delays, with the Quadrifogli now slated to arrive in the U.S. by the third quarter of 2016 while the 2.0-liter base model will arrive by the end of the year. Originally, Alfa planned to roll out the performance model at the beginning of 2016 with the rest of the lineup arriving by midyear.
Part of the issue is a set of internal crash tests which the Giulia failed, causing a six month delay in development as the car was reengineered.
