Model Preview

The Alfa Romeo Giulia will mostly be a carryover for the 2018 model year. The most notable change will be the addition of more standard equipment on the performance-oriented Quadrifoglio model.

No changes are on tap in terms of exterior and interior design. However, the Quadrifoglio will gain a 15-speaker Harmon Kardon audio as well as forward collision warning standard. Previously, these were optional.

Under the hood, the Giulia will continue to feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine rated at 280 hp with 306 lb-ft of torque. An 8-speed automatic gearbox is standard, with no option for a manual.

In the case of the Quadrifoglio, buyers get a more potent 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 505 hp with 443 lb-ft. Alfa Romeo says the car offers best-in-class acceleration of 3.8 seconds in a 0-60 mph sprint.

Stay tuned for a review closer to launch.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia is expected to go on sale this fall.
