Alfa Romeo Giulia press reviews: EVO | AUTO EXPRESS | CAR MAGAZINE | TOP GEAR
The current Alfa Romeo Giulia, first unveiled on June 24th 2015 and followed by market launch in early 2016, was the first mass-production Alfa Romeo in over two decades to use a longitudinal rear-wheel drive platform since the 75 that went out of production in 1992.
The Giulia uses a front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout, featuring a perfect 50-50 front-rear weight distribution and an all-round independent suspension architecture with double-wishbone at the front and multilink at the rear.
All versions have carbon-fibre drive shaft, aluminium alloy shock towers, suspension components, front wings and doors.
The first models that went on sale from February 2016 were the 2.2L MultiJet2 turbo diesel and the 2.9L V6 Twin-Turbo Quadrifoglio Verde; a 2.0L four-cylinder MultiAir2 turbo petrol engine followed soon after.
With the Model Year 2019, the Giulia diesel engine gets updated to meet the Euro 6d emission standards with the introduction of AdBlue technology: 150 PS and 180 PS versions benefit from a power increase of approximately 10 PS.
All models benefitted from an updated 8.8-inch infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
In addition, the Giulia Quadrifoglio engine was updated to include 6 port injectors, although it retained the same power figures of the previous version without port injectors (510 PS).
Model Year 2020 offered an updated interior with a new 8.8-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system offering Wi-Fi hotspot, over-the-air software upgrades, integrated emergency call and a call assistant capabilities.
The interior gets a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel and a leather-wrapped gear lever.
GTA / GTAm
On March 2nd 2020, Alfa Romeo launched the GTA and GTAm track-focused variant with a limited and soon sold-out production run of 500 units to celebrate Alfa Romeo’s 110th anniversary and pay tribute to one of the most emblematic Alfa Romeos: the Giulia GTA.
540 PS and 100 kgs lighter than the standard Quadrifoglio means a power-to-weight ratio = 2.82 kg/PS.
Only minor changes to exterior colours and interior options; four trim levels: Sprint, Veloce, Estrema and Quadrifoglio, all powered by petrol engines.
- Features a dynamic new look, with a strong family resemblance to the Tonale.
- Technology and connectivity hit new heights with a new digital instrument panel, Alfa Connected Services and Over-the-Air updates.
- Non-Fungible-Token Technology makes its debut to the benefit of future resale values.
- Three comprehensively equipped specification levels: Sprint, Veloce and Competizione.
The 2.0L 4-Cylinder MultiAir2 Turbo Petrol with 280hp and 400Nm of torque is the sole engine variant available across the three trim levels and now coupled, as standard, with the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission.
Soon the Quadrifoglio version will also benefit from the same exterior and interior updates with also a limited edition called “Anniversario”, due to be released to celebrate the 100 years of the “four-leaf clover”.
