This specification, which is based on the Veloce trim, will go on sale in Q3 of 2022, priced from $55,090, which will land you the Giulia Estrema RWD. If you want the AWD variant, it will set you back $57,090, whereas the Stelvio Estrema AWD will cost you at least $58,950. These models are meant to further emphasize the sportiness of the brand, which is why they are positioned right near the top of the range, underneath the Quadrifoglio spec.

According to Alfa Romeo, this new trim level is aimed at driving purists who are always looking to feel more connected to the vehicle, describing the customer as a “connoisseur” that is “less devoted to the muscularity of aesthetics,” yet aware of the technical solutions that provide balance and outstanding driving dynamics.

These cars feature active suspension as standard, working alongside the CDC (Chassis Domain Control) system in order to provide you with a diverse driving experience. Also standard is the self-locking differential, which distributes torque and traction evenly when exiting a corner at high speed or during acceleration.

As for their visuals, you’ll find carbon fiber veneer on the outside (mirror covers and front fascia), Estrema badges, 19-inch wheels for the Giulia and 21-inch wheels for the Stelvio, plus more carbon fiber on the inside, where you’ll also find a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, Alcantara seats, as well as red stitching on the dashboard, steering wheel and gear knob.

Buyers can choose between two power units in a 276 hp (280 ps) 2.0L turbocharged gasoline engine and a 207 hp (210 ps) 2.2-liter turbocharged diesel, both paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and Q4 all-wheel drive.
