The complete range of the new Giulia, Alfa Romeo’s most eagerly awaited model in 2016, has been presented to the international press at the Centro Sperimentale di Balocco, Vercelli. This completes the car’s début, following its starring role at the Alfa Romeo Historical Museum in Arese with the launch of the Quadrifoglio version – the supreme expression of the “La meccanica delle emozioni” concept – and the subsequent launch of the entire range at the Geneva International Motor Show 2016.
The new Giulia can already be ordered from showrooms across Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands. The range includes three trim levels; Giulia, Super and Quadrifoglio, and five engine versions: 2.2-litre Diesel with 150 HP and 180 HP combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox or 8-speed automatic transmission; 510 HP 2.9-litre V6 Biturbo petrol engine combined with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The new Giulia features rear-wheel drive: this is a design choice that guarantees superior performance levels, loads of fun and a thrilling drive, and it is also a tribute to the most authentic traditions of the legendary Alfa Romeo.
In keeping with Alfa Romeo traditions, the new Giulia offers unique technical solutions. The more sophisticated features include the Integrated Brake System (IBS) for considerably reducing braking distance – from 100 km/h to 0 in 38.5 m for the Giulia and in 32 m for the Quadrifoglio – and active suspension for exceptional comfort. Exclusive to the Quadrifoglio version, the Torque Vectoring technology affords outstanding torque distribution between the two wheels on the rear axle, and the AlfaTM Active Aero Splitter actively manages downforce at high speed.
