2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Starts under $40,000, Quadrifoglio design Pricier Than an M3

Affordable, high-volume four-doors via established American brands weren’t working, as well as so the Dodge Dart as well as Chrysler 0 were jettisoned. inside the vast space below the full-size Chrysler 300 as well as Dodge Charger, then, expectations fall solely on the shoulders of a luxury sports sedan via a relaunched Italian brand in which last sold a four-door here in 1995. Oh, as well as the most expensive design of in which fresh car will be going to start at $73,595.
in which’s for the 505-hp 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, on sale in which month at 156 dealerships (basically, wherever you might find an existing Maserati or Fiat franchise). For its princely sum, the four-leaf-clovered Quadrifoglio offers owners a Ferrari-derived twin-turbocharged V-6, all-wheel drive, torque vectoring, various carbon-fiber Centeng parts, as well as admittedly delectable performance as well as style—read our First Drive review here. Initially, the Quadrifoglio will offer a choice of seven outdoor colors, four wheel styles, as well as three paint finishes for the brake calipers. Navigation, blind-spot monitoring, an adaptive suspension, an electrically powered active front splitter, as well as a red start button mounted on the steering wheel (just like in a Ferrari 488GTB!) all are included.
Even better, the Quadrifoglio’s 191-mph top speed doesn’t need to be unlocked via an option, as will be standard practice at Mercedes-AMG as well as BMW M. however even though a few early promotional cars have shown up at dealerships with six-speed manual gearboxes, Alfa Romeo will not sell in which here that has a stick, only the eight-speed automatic.
The base Giulia will be far more affordable, coming in at $38,990. in which design comes that has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 280 horsepower as well as 306 lb-ft of torque, with rear-wheel drive as standard as well as Q4 all-wheel drive available for $2000 extra. Standard equipment includes leather, 10-way power front seats with lumbar adjustment, proximity ignition with remote start, a backup camera with rear parking sensors, LED taillights, xenon headlights, 17-inch wheels, as well as a 6.5-inch infotainment display. A Sport outdoor package ($1250) adds 18-inch wheels, adds coloring to the brake calipers, blackens the chrome trim, as well as adds sportier front as well as rear fascias. A flat-bottom steering wheel as well as a carbon-fiber driveshaft, should any Mercedes E-class driver ask, also are standard.
The Giulia Ti, at $40,990, adds 18-inch wheels, wood trim, heated seats as well as steering wheel, an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, satellite radio, as well as a few various other luxuries Alfa Romeo isn’t yet divulging. A Sport package upgrades the Ti with the same stuff as the base car plus dark-finish 19-inch phone-dial wheels, 14-way power front seats with manual thigh extensions as well as power side bolsters, a different steering wheel, as well as aluminum shift paddles mounted on the steering column.
A Lusso package flips the Ti inside the various other direction, with leather-wrapped dash as well as door toppers, extra-soft Italian leather upholstery, gray-stained oak or light walnut trim, as well as a “luxury” steering wheel. These packages cost $2250 each. For an unspecified cost, a separate Performance package brings column paddle shifters, adaptive suspension, as well as limited-slip differential. As life might have in which, carbon-ceramic brakes as well as carbon-backed Sparco seats are only options on the Quadrifoglio. The four-cylinder Giulia versions go on sale in January. The Giulia also will donate most of its running gear to what eventually may be Alfa’s highest-volume product, the Stelvio crossover.
