Fast and beautiful—these are the key elements of the upcoming 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia. With the mean-looking albeit beefy front fascia complete with its inverted triangle meshed grille and slanted headlamps, the sedan is truly one impressive creation. Unfortunately, despite the excitement and anticipation, the sedan won’t be available until much later of next year (or the start of 2017) after its mother company, Fiat, released a statement about its delay.
Options for the interior are expected to be assorted and in wide array starting from materials, colors and stitching. Sparco racing seats is also offered for those who truly have the spirit of a speedster.
The instrument panel is asymmetrically designed and features a driver-focused cockpit; while the instrument cluster highlights the 7-inch touch screen and two monochromatic analogue gauges. If that is still inadequate, an 8.8-inch screen for Connect 3D Nav infotainment system also graces the center of the dashboard. A rotary pad gives you the option for gesture recognition system, enabling the driver to remotely communicate with the screen by merely moving his fingers on the pad.
Power and Performance
Alfa Romeo Giulia was based on the Giorgio architecture developed together with Ferrari. Hence, you will find a 2.9L twin-turbocharged V6 with a very powerful 505hp and 443 lb.-ft. torque as one of Giulia Quadrifoglio’s key elements. Drivers will surely be delighted to know that the core will be accompanied with 6-speed manual transmission with rear-wheel drivetrain. It can sprint the 0-60 mph within 3.8 seconds and gain the top speed of 191 mph. Much practical clientele are offered with the sensible 276hp 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder. The AWD flavor will also be available soon after Giulia’s debut.
Meanwhile, a special driving mode selector dubbed as the Chassis Domain Control commands the chassis systems (i.e. torque vectoring, active front splitter & suspension, steering & stability systems, and steering). Different modes include Natural, Dynamic, Race and Advanced Efficiency.
