2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia
Alfa Romeo: some make, we create.
Since its creation 105 years ago, the Alfa Romeo name has become legendary. It evokes passion for motoring like no other – a passion built on the championships, drivers and mechanics that have been the machine behind its success.
In every Alfa Romeo, technology and emotion converge to produce a true work of art – every detail essential, every design the perfect harmony between beauty and purpose.
This is Alfa Romeo. La Meccanica delle Emozioni.
For those who demand control, the new all-aluminum AlfaLink suspension greatly enhances road grip. In front, its new double wishbone system keeps wheels perfectly perpendicular to the road even on the most challenging corners. At the rear, the four-and-a-half-arm multilink system represents the best combination of lateral grip and comfort level, even on uneven road surfaces. The Alfa Active Suspension system adjusts the suspension response depending on driving conditions and modes selected using the Alfa DNA selector.
The available Alfa Q4 All-Wheel Drive adds even more all-season traction and performance capability, transferring up to 60 percent of the engine’s torque to the front wheels. It also handles up to a 2.5 percent mechanical over-slip – directing power to the outside rear wheel when cornering for even greater traction, turn-in and directional stability. What’s created with every turn behind the wheel is an intense and symbiotic bond between foot and throttle – Giulia and Giulia Ti take performance from merely responsive to telepathic.
The unforgettable lines and authoritative appearance of the all-new Giulia and Giulia Ti project more than a refined style, they embody the driving experience to its core.
An all-new, all-aluminum 276 horsepower1 2.0L I4 Intercooled Turbo engine featuring MultiAir® technology helps achieve a top speed of 149 mph, and 0 to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds. Minimal turbo lag and the 8-speed automatic transmission serve to exhilarate.
The interior of the Giulia is striking for its combination of materials: surfaces in real wood, natural walnut or dark gray oak, brushed aluminum, carbon fiber and full-grain Italian leather. Materials are selected to be in full harmony with the personality of Giulia and the craft that only Italian style can provide.
Form, function and beauty are inseparable, creating an intense experience appealing to all the senses.
Quadrifoglio is back
The all-new Giulia marks the rebirth of the Quadrifoglio, the symbol of the most legendary winning race cars in the history of Alfa Romeo.
Shifting the Balance of Power
Its near perfect 50/50 weight distribution creates optimal balance and highlights the advantage of a rear-wheel-drive system in a front-engined vehicle by pairing rear-wheel drive with the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s front-mounted, all-aluminum Bi-Turbo V6 engine.
Intelligence in every move:
The Giulia Quadrifoglio is the only sedan in the world to be equipped with an active aero front splitter. This adjustable carbon fiber spoiler is integrated into the front lower fascia.
Alfa DNA Pro:
The Alfa DNA Pro, thanks to the interaction with the Chassis Domain Control, instantaneously adapts the car behavior to the selected driving mode.
The Giulia Quadrifoglio continues this tradition with an all-aluminum 90-degree 2.9 liter Bi-Turbo V6 engine that delivers class-leading 505 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque between 2,500 and 5,500 rpm; it launches from 0-60 in a class-leading 3.8 seconds and achieves top speeds of 191 miles per hour.
Alfa Active Suspension:
An innovative active damping suspension dynamically adapts its response depending on driving conditions and the mode selected with Alfa DNA Pro.
The latest Alfa Romeo sedan offers safety and security features that include:
• Full-speed Forward Collision Warning- Plus
• Lane Departure Warning
