2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia: A Performance Sedan You’ll Love
While there was a return to the US market only a couple years ago by Alfa Romeo, the car they brought back wasn’t one that would fit every lifestyle or be a car you’d consider if you have a family to haul around. The newest addition to the market from Alfa Romeo will be the car we need if we have the need of a sedan but it will be more than just a sedan as this car will also provide us with the performance attributes we want to enjoy on the road as well.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia is a car that’s built to be amazing on the road and offer you the dynamics you want to enjoy. This Italian sports sedan is the car that looks impressive and makes room for more than two to ride along and enjoy what it has to offer. This new car is one that offers you the look and feel you want when you’re on the road and it can head to the track and show off there as well if you desire a bit of added excitement. For most of us this is a car that brings back the imagination and dynamics we’ve loved from Alfa Romeo in the past.
The new Giulia is an important car for a few reasons. This is a car that rides on the new Giorgio platform which will be used to underpin new generations of cars and crossover SUVs for the future as well. This is a new car that is compact in size to give you a look and feel that you’ll easily be impressed with on the road and have the fun you want when whipping it around corners or when you’re out for a drive on the weekend.
From under the hood we see two engines that are being used by this car. The base engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder model that produces 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque. This is the model you want when you’re looking for good fuel mileage from this car as it can give you 24 city/33 hwy while using the eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission, which is the only transmission offered. The engine you can step up to is the 2.9-liter twin turbocharged V6 engine which is able to produces 505 horsepower and 443 lb.-ft. of torque and is the performance beast of the pair.
As a new car, the standard equipment is comprehensive making this a car that doesn’t require you to make a lot of extra choices when you want to drive the new Giulia. This standard equipment list includes Brembo brakes, 17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, dual zone climate controls, push button starting, a rearview camera, cross traffic detection, parking sensors, keyless entry, advanced braking assist, bi-xenon headlights and six-way power seats. The Ti model adds 18-inch wheels, heated seats, a heated steering wheel and gray wood trim on the inside. The QV model moves you up to 19-inch wheels with high performance tires, two-way adjustable sport seats, carbon fiber and aluminum trim pieces, LED running lights and a carbon fiber rear spoiler.
The options list may be small, but it’s an important list of items for you to consider. This list includes a 900-watt Harman/Kardon sound system, a dual pane sunroof and Q4 AWD. You can add the Sport and Lusso packages to the car which bring in the 12-way adjustable sport seats and the 18 or 19-inch wheels for the base model along with the navigation system. If you already chose the QV model you’ll be able to add the carbon ceramic disc brakes and Sparco high-performance sport seats.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia is a car that you want to drive and experience when you want the glorious beauty of this Italian vehicle. This is a car that will give you what you want on the road and makes a huge difference to you on a daily basis as you look to the car for the power and precision you desire. Let this new Alfa be the right car for you to drive as it enters the market and makes its mark on us as the next great Italian car you can drive.
