The Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Italian premium car maker’s answer to the BMW 3 Series and Jaguar XE, is on display at the ongoing 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The sedan will be available in three variants – Giulia, Super and Quadrifoglio.
The stylish Italian sedan uses carbon fibre (drive shaft), aluminium (suspension components), aluminium composite and plastic in its construction to keep the weight in check. That, combined with optimized weight distribution on both axles and Alfa-patented suspension link mechanism, makes for a very sporty sedan. The 180 PS 2.2-litre diesel variant weighs just 1,374 kg.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is powered by a range of petrol and diesel engines with power outputs ranging from 150 PS to 510 PS. Transmission options include 8-speed automatic and 6-speed manual.
Features on the top-end Giulia Quadrifoglio include torque vectoring, Integrated Brake System, Forward Collision warning, autonomous emergency brake, pedestrian detection, Active Aero Splitter, Alfa DNA driving modes, Chassis Domain Control, 8.8-inch connect drive 3D touchscreen infotainment system, Harman Kardon music system, adaptive headlamps and a whole array of safety assistance systems.
Bookings for the Alfa Romeo Giulia are set to commence in the EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) region in April 15th with launch set to take place in a phased manner. The car will be taking on the likes of BMW 3 Series, Jaguar XE, Mercedes C Class, Audi A4, Volvo S60, etc.
