Just in time for the holidays, the long awaited Alfa Romeo 2017 Giulia is preparing to go on sale in January. Here’s how much it costs and just how it will make a mark as the first Alfa Romeo for the common American.
Alright so maybe not exactly for the commoners. The Giulia starts at $38,990. That puts it in the running with the BMW 3 series and Audi A4.
The base model carries a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine. It produces 280-horsepower and does a clean 0 to 60 mph in 5.1-seconds. A nice punch for the base model. It also comes with standard features like leather upholstery, flat-bottom steering wheel, bi-xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights, remote start, and dual exhaust.
Aside from that, all Guilia models come with a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution and a new rear-wheel-drive architecture. Not to mention, all models have that unique look that makes them stand apart as Italian luxury performance models.
If you want something a little bit fancier than the base, but still reasonably priced, check out the Ti trim. It’s a step up that adds 18-inch wheels, wood interior accents, heated front seats and steering wheel, and an 8.8-inch infotainment screen. The Ti trim starts at $40,990.
Add AWD to either trim for $2,000.
Now while both those trims are reasonably priced, the Giulia Quadrifoglio tells another tale. It starts at $73,595. An actually reasonable price considering what it gets you. It offers 505-horsepower thanks to an all-new 2.9-liter bi-turbo V6, aka the most powerful production Alfa Romeo engine ever. It goes from 0-60 mph in 3.8-seconds. Niiiiicccee.
All three models will arrive in dealerships in January. If you want to get one for Christmas, we recommend making a cute handmade coupon complete with a new key chain.
