Alfa Romeo has released full information of their premieres and showcases at the upcoming Paris Motor Show. The show will see the world premiere of the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce, along with the Alfa Romeo 4G, 4C Spider, Giulia Quadrifoglio, Giulietta and Mito.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce features exclusive engine versions, style and contents. The Giulia Veloce comes with two new engine versions: the 280 HP 2.0-liter Turbo petrol and the 210 HP 2.2-liter Diesel, both with 8-speed automatic transmission and the unprecedented Q4 all-wheel drive. In Paris, the Alfa Romeo Giulia will be unveiled in five different guises: two new Veloce incarnations in Blue Misano livery and Grey, two Super versions and a captivating Quadrifoglio.
The exterior of the new Giulia Veloce stands out both for its refined styling features, such as the specific bumpers and glossy black door trim, as well as for various sports contents such as the special rear extractor which incorporates a double exhaust pipe and the optional 5-hole 19-inch alloy wheel rims. The same sporty feel reigns inside, where new black leather Sport seats dominate, plus a sports steering wheel with an original grip, aluminium inserts on the dashboard, central tunnel, door panels and Xenon headlights.
This distinctive interior and exterior style houses a wealth of standard equipment, including dual-zone climate control, the Alfa DNA system and 6.5-inch Connect infotainment system, as well as the new efficient active safety systems such as Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB) and pedestrian recognition, the Integrated Brake System (IBS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and cruise control with speed limiter.
At its world preview, the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce offers the début of the innovative all-wheel drive system with Q4 technology, designed to handle vehicle traction in real time, and to guarantee outstanding levels of performance, efficiency and safety.The architecture of the Q4 system fitted on the Giulia Veloce includes an active transfer case and a front differential designed to accommodate the specific technical requirements of Alfa Romeo, in order to handle a high torque extremely promptly with a particularly compact and light-weight design (the increase in weight is just around 60 kg).
Further particularities of the Giulia include the outstanding weight distribution across the two axles, the sophisticated suspension (Alfa Rome patent) and the most direct steering in its segment. In addition, the Alfa Romeo Giulia combines extraordinary engine performance with ample use of ultralight materials, like carbon fiber, aluminium, aluminium composite and plastic, in order to obtain the best weight-to-power ratio (less than 3 in the Quadrifoglio version).
In keeping with Alfa Romeo traditions, the new Giulia offers unique technical solutions that make it the benchmark for its segment. The more sophisticated features include the Integrated Brake System (IBS) for considerably reducing braking distance, and active suspension for exceptional comfort. Exclusive to the Quadrifoglio version, the Torque Vectoring technology affords outstanding torque distribution between the two wheels on the rear axle, and the Active Aero Splitter actively controls downforce at high speed.
