Alfa Romeo has opened UK order books for the all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia range, with prices starting from £29,180 on-the-road.
The range features five trim levels – Giulia, Super, Tecnica, Speciale and top-of-the-range Quadrifoglio – and four engine variants (two petrol and two diesel), which are all paired to a new eight-speed automatic transmission as standard. Order books for the Giulia Speciale will open later this month.
Damien Dally, Country Manager at Alfa Romeo UK, commented; ‘The all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia is a true driver’s car, offering beautiful Italian styling and stunning performance, and so we’re delighted to see strong early interest in the car. Passion and practicality combine in the Alfa Romeo Giulia; there’s never been more temptation to own an Alfa Romeo’.
The Giulia has been awarded a Five Star Euro NCAP rating, with 98% protection result for adult occupants – making it the highest score ever achieved by a car, despite the more severe Euro NCAP evaluation system introduced in 2015.
Much of this achievement is down to the new active safety systems fitted as standard across the range with even the entry level trim featuring Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB) with pedestrian recognition, Integrated Brake System (IBS), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
Alfa Romeo says the Giulia interior is focused on driving satisfaction. Key features include dual-zone climate control, Alfa’s D.N.A. rotary driving mode selector, an infotainment system with DAB plus MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity, 8-speaker audio system, rear parking sensors and cruise control.
The range is topped by the Giulia Quadrifoglio, powered by a new 510hp, Bi-Turbo V6 petrol engine, developing peak torque of 600Nm, mated to an eight-speed paddle shift automatic transmission as standard. It features a ’sector first’ Chassis Domain Control (CDC) system, says Alfa Romeo and is also available to order now with prices starting at £59,000 on-the-road.
