The rest of the 2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia range has now joined the Giulia QV, debuting at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show with a choice of petrol and diesel engines.
We predicted a week ago that the rest of the new Alfa Romeo Gulia range would be revealed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, and this morning Alfa has done just that. Say hello to the range of Giulia models Alfa hopes will take a slice out of the sales of cars like the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class.
In addition to the Giulia Quadrifoglio we saw last year, there will be a choice of three other engines, with a 197bhp 2.0 litre turbo petrol with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and a 2.2 litre diesel offering either 148bhp or 178bhp, both of which can be optioned with either the eight-speed auto or a six-speed manual.
The standard drivetrain for the ‘lesser’ Giulia models is rear-wheel drive, but you will be able to get 4WD on some models (likely the petrol and more powerful diesel), with all versions getting multi-link rear suspension and double wishbones, autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise and blind spot monitoring.
Three trim levels are going to be available for the Giulia – Giulia, Super and Quadrifoglio – as well as additional Lusso and Sport packs, with the base spec including 16″ alloys, LED tail lights, cloth interior, 6.5″ infotainment and a drivers info screen, with stuff like leather and bigger alloys arriving if you spend more.
It’s taken Alfa the best part of a year to reveal the bulk of the new Giulia range, and they still haven’t come up with prices and complete specs (at least not for the UK) or told us when you’ll actually be able to walk in to an Alfa Romeo dealer in the UK and drive away in a new Giulia.
When Alfa has decided, we’ll let you know.
