2nd February, 2017: Alfa Romeo’s eagerly awaited Giulia sports sedan range has gone on sale in Australia priced from a highly competitive $59,895.
Based on Alfa Romeo’s flexible all-new Giorgio rear-wheel-drive architecture, the Giulia is more than just an all-new premium sports sedan: it’s the vanguard of the Alfa Romeo renaissance, and the start of an exciting new era for the 106-year old Italian brand.
Designed, engineered and produced in Italy, the Giulia sports sedan introduces a new level of standard equipment and driving enjoyment to the mid-sized luxury class.
The all-new Alfa Romeo Giulia’s Australian line-up consists of five models across four equipment grades – Giulia, Super, Veloce and range-topping Quadrifoglio.
All Giulia models benefit from highly competitive levels of standard equipment, including leather upholstery, alloy wheels, bi-Xenon headlamps, keyless go, stop/start technology, satellite navigation, dual-zone climate control, rain sensing wipers, cruise control, rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.
With pricing starting from $59,895, the Alfa Romeo Giulia mounts a strong argument as one of the best value premium sports sedans on the Australian market.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is offered with the choice of four all-aluminium, all-turbo engines, all of which meet the latest Euro 6 emission standards. Each is mated to a smooth and seemingly prescient ZF eight-speed automatic transmission which sends drive to the rear wheels via a carbon fibre driveshaft.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia stands out for its distinctive Italian design, expressed through an impeccable sense of proportion and the sophisticated simplicity and quality surfaces that craft its unique design. Only Italy could have designed the gorgeous Giulia.
The new Giulia’s curvaceous exterior is unashamedly extroverted and modern yet remains faithful to Alfa Romeo’s rich 106-year heritage. Inside, the crisp and classy interior is designed to envelop the driver and cater to their every need.
All Alfa Romeo Giulia models benefit from a perfect 50/50 weight distribution, excellent power-to-weight ratios, and innovative engine and driver technologies designed to maximise driver enjoyment and minimise environmental impact.
This new Alfa Romeo combines stellar engine performance and clever use of ultralight materials, such as carbon fibre, aluminium, aluminium composite and plastic, to reduce weight in the quest for class-leading handling, refinement, performance and driving excitement.
All Giulia models have an advanced, lightweight carbon fibre drive shaft to enhance engine responsiveness.
Standard safety specification on all Giulia models includes new efficient active safety systems like Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB) and pedestrian recognition, Integrated Brake System (IBS), and Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
“We are thrilled to welcome the Alfa Romeo Giulia sports sedan to Australia,” said Steve Zanlunghi, president and CEO of Alfa Romeo Australia.
“The Giulia’s combination of quality, performance, value and Italian spirit across all models gives Australians something truly unique and exhilarating in the premium sports sedan market.”
