Powering it is the 280-horsepower (284 ps/209 kW) and 306 pound-feet (415 Nm) of torque 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine shared with the Sprint, Ti, and Veloce variants. Channeling the output and thrust to the rear wheels or the optional all-wheel drive system available on all grades bar the Quadrifoglios is an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Quadrifoglio and Quadrifoglio 100th Anniversary bring the Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine to the party that makes 505 hp (512 ps/377 kW) and 443 lb-ft (601 Nm).
Just like the 2024 Stelvio, the latest model year Giulia has been equipped with new LED Matrix headlights. It also features new taillights in smoked glass with a glossy black look and a grille insert. The same 12.3-inch TFT display, which is part of the novelties, can be found behind the steering wheel, offering the Evolved, Relax, and Heritage layouts.
There are also several available driving assistance gizmos, including lane keep assist, active blind-spot assist, traffic sign recognition, traffic jam assist, highway assist, driver attention alert, intelligent speed assist, and full-speed forward collision warning-plus.
Alfa Romeo says all versions of the 2024 Giulia feature leather upholstery on the seats, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, keyless entry with remote start, LED DRLs and taillights, bi-xenon headlamps, reversing camera, and rear parking sensors. The heated front and rear seats, a wireless charging pad, a navigation system, and several other items are also offered at no extra cost.
Pricing starts at $43,075 for the base Giulia Sprint. This makes it a bit more affordable than BMW's 330i and Mercedes' C-Class, which have respective MSRPs of $44,500 and $44,850. The lineup continues with the Ti, Veloce, and Competizione, offered from $45,615, $49,375, and $53,865, respectively. As we already told you, the all-wheel drive system is an option on these trim levels, which will set interested parties back another $2,000 regardless of the grade.
Offered strictly with rear-wheel drive, the Giulia Quadrifoglio and Giulia Quadrifoglio 100th Anniversary start at $83,075 and $88,475, respectively. The most affordable version of the BMW M3, with its 473 horsepower (480 ps/353 kW) and rear-wheel drive, starts at $76,000 before destination and dealer fees.
