The anticipated Alfa Romeo Giulia is now available at showrooms in the United Kingdom, with a choice of five trim levels: the Giulia, Super, Tecnica, Speciale and the top-of-the-range Quadrifoglio. The Alfa Romeo Giulua comes in at a base price of 29,180 pounds.
The new Giulia, with rear-wheel drive, has a distinct design with an obvious Italian flair. The car is expressed through an impeccable sense of proportions, based on the technical architecture, sophisticated simplicity and quality surfaces, both inside and out.
On the exterior, the new Giulia stands out for its new light clusters, very short overhangs, a long bonnet and long front wings, a retracted passenger compartment settled on the drive wheels and muscular rear wings which visually mark the point where power is unleashed onto the road. Furthermore, the rounded angles and the enveloping pillars convey momentum to the car creating a “drop-shaped” profile.
In addition, the new 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, the renowned trefoil nose.
The interior of the car focuses on driving satisfaction in a clean and essential way: the presence of non-invasive technology can be perceived among the instruments which pivot around the driver. The tunnel is diagonal, the dashboard slightly undulated and the steering wheel, which groups together all the main controls, is small and straightforward. The whole package is framed by the fines materials, picked for their tactile and visual impact and assembled with hand-crafted care. The Giulia available for the U.K. comes with dual-zone climate control, Alfa D.N.A. rotary driving mode selector, Alfa Connect display infotainment system with DAB plus MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity, 8-speaker audio system, rear parking sensors and cruise control.
Combining perfect weight distribution with new rear-wheel drive architecture, the Alfa Romeo Giulia offers customers best in class power-to-weight ratios and innovative engine and driver technologies. There are four engine types for the new Giulia, ranging from two petrol engines and two diesels. The engines are paired to a new, standard eight-speed automatic transmission.
New efficient active safety systems come as standard across the range, with the entry level ‘Giulia’ trim featuring Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB) with pedestrian recognition, Integrated Brake System (IBS), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). The innovative safety technology contributed to the Alfa Romeo Giulia being awarded a prestigious Five Star Euro NCAP rating.
The top-of-the-range Giulia Quadrifoglio, powered by a new 510hp, 600Nm Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, with an eight-speed paddle shift automatic transmission as standard, and featuring sector first Alfa Chassis Domain Control (CDC) system. The top-of-the-line variant comes in at a later stage with a starting price of 59,000 pounds.
