Alfa Romeo Giulia… Fire and Style in the Modern Sport Sedan

The northern European powers have long dominated the sport sedan segment. But with a great heritage of artful engineering and luscious styling… the Italian car makers of Alfa Romeo refuse to be overlooked.

Without slavish imitation or ham-handed attempts to alter the sport sedan format, the low-slung Alfa Romeo Giulia is actually sedate by Italian styling standards, with the distinctive inverted triangular front grill setting it apart at first glance.

The base $38,000 rear-wheel drive Giulia packs an enormously satisfying 2.0 liter 280 horsepower turbocharged 4 cylinder punch, and clocks 0 to 60 in under 6 seconds. The top Quadrifoglio model powered by a Ferrari-based 505 horsepower twin turbo V6 shuts down 0 – 60 in a blistering 3.6 seconds.

Inside the Italian facility with soft leather and contemporary cues and textures plays out in a spacious passenger compartment with firm leather seats, sporting touches like the flat bottom steering wheel, and on-board tech controlled via a 6.5 or optional 8.8 inch touchscreen connectivity.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a highly evolved on-road performer, with the aid of 4 mode adjustable suspension damping and throttle response system.
