Alfa Romeo Reveals Details for More Affordable Giulia Models


Though we’ve already seen the high-performance Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the Italian brand rolled out the more pedestrian versions of its new sedan at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. 

For now, Alfa has only revealed European versions of the Giulia, but it’s only a matter of time until these cars arrive in North America, slated to show up in late 2017.

2016 Geneva Motor Show Coverage

Two different engines and three different trim levels have been introduced today by Alfa, though it still isn’t clear which will be available in the U.S. A 2.2-liter diesel is available making either 150 or 180 horsepower, mated to a six-speed manual or an eight speed automatic.

A new 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas-powered engine with 200 hp was also shown, the most likely to make its way into the North American Giulia. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Buyers will be able to choose between the base Giulia, the Giulia Super and the high-performance Quadrifoglio, which uses a turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 to make 510 hp.

The brand didn’t elaborate on the base model, but Alfa did say that the Super models comes with high-quality leather inside and full-grain leather seats along with other luxury amenities like real wood trim. The Super versions of the car also get 18-inch wheels.

Watch for details on the North American version of the Giulia closer to its U.S. launch.

    so 200 horsepower or 510 horsepower? how about a 335i competitor version? and why does it look so bland and generic? give it some nice body kit or something. shit car

  • craigcole

    I’ll take a Quadrifoglio, please. The base model? Not so much.

    They talked about dropping their 3.0tt with 340hp in this car and a 279hp 2.0t might give it the power advantage over the 3 series. This 200 hp 2.0 sounds like the base engine and more in line with a audi a3 then a 3 series bmw

    The Giulia is one of the best looking cars in its class. It will be interesting of what the lowest asking price will be.
