Alfa Romeo To Debut Giulia’s US Range In New York

The Italian company confirmed the debut of the Giulia’s US-bound range at the upcoming New York Auto Show.

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia will be available with a turbocharged 276hp 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Alfa claims that the 276hp Giulia needs less than 5.5 seconds for the 0-60mph sprint, with the top speed standing at 149mph. The new eight-speed automatic transmission is designed with enthusiasts in mind, offering gear shifts that take less than 100 milliseconds.

Customers will also have the option of Alfa’s new Q4 AWD system on Giulia and Giulia Ti models for better all-weather traction. Every model will come with a class-exclusive carbon-fibre driveshaft, leather upholstery, a seven-inch digital display in the instrument binnacle and Alfa’s DNA selector with Dynamic, Natural and Advanced Efficiency driving modes. Infotainment options include a 6.5-inch or a 8.8-inch widescreen display.

Next to the regular Giulia will be the Quadrifoglio version which is powered by a twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 with 505hp, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 60mph in 3.8 seconds and lap the Nurburgring in 7:39 minutes. Top speed is rated at 191mph.

Performance-wise the range-topping Giulia offers a four-mode DNA Pro selector with an additional Race driving mode, a torque vectoring differential, six-piston Brembo brakes at the front and four-piston ones at the rear.

      You think it’s a *mistake*? What a stupid contribution. Clearly you know nothing about Alfa Romeo. If you want Audi design language, buy an Audi.

        He never said mistake. It doesn’t matter what design language they have, if someone doesn’t like the way it looks, then they don’t like the way it looks.
