Mainstream Alfa Romeo Giulia Models Revealed in Geneva

Italian sports sedan gains more pedestrian variants

Alfa Romeo revealed the rest of the Giulia sedan range at the 2016 Geneva auto show along with two new engine choices. In addition to the high-performance Quadrifoglio variant, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia will be offered in Europe with a new gas or diesel engine that can be paired to a choice of manual or automatic gearboxes. In Europe, two other trim levels will be offered below the Quadrifoglio: the base Giulia and the mid-grade Super.

A new 2.0-liter turbo-four that makes 200 hp will be the base gas engine and can be paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This will be the entry-level powertrain for the U.S.-spec Giulia, which will be tuned for more power. The new turbocharged four-cylinder includes direct injection and FCA's Multiair electro-hydraulic valve actuation system. European-spec Giulias will also be available with a 2.2-liter turbodiesel I-4 in 150-hp and 180-hp guises; however, it's unlikely that this engine will come to the U.S.

As with the range-topping Quadrifoglio models, mainstream Giulia variants will come with near perfect weight distribution. The suspension setup remains double-wishbone up front, with Alfa's own Alfa Link design in the rear. Additionally, the Giulia is built using lightweight and high-strength materials including carbon fiber and aluminum to maintain a good power-to-weight ratio without sacrificing torsional rigidity.

Inside, the Alfa Romeo Giulia will be available with the 8.8-inch Connected Nav 3D navigation system, which was developed in collaboration with Magnetti Marelli. Controlling the interface can be done with a rotary pad and advanced voice recognition. Depending on the trim level, the Giulia will also come with either a 3.5-inch or 7-inch TFT display in between the gauges that offers the driver information on everything from fuel economy to lateral acceleration and suggested gear changes on manual-equipped cars. A 900-watt Sound Theatre by Harman Kardon premium audio system with 14 speakers is also optional on the Alfa Romeo Giulia. The Giulia comes with a suite of active safety systems that includes automatic forward emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control (late availability), lane departure warning, and blind spot warning.
