Alfa Romeo introduced us to the new Giulia Veloce version at the Paris Motor Show, set to be positioned between the range-topping Quadrifoglio and the more modest Giulia models.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce will be available with two engines, a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol with 280 PS (276 HP) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque and a 2.2-litre diesel with 210 PS (207 HP) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque.
Both of them are channeling their power via an eight-speed automatic gearbox to all four wheels. Alfa Romeo takes great pride in the Q4 AWD system, saying that it only adds around 60kg (132 lbs) and unlike other systems of its direct competition, it remains 100% rear-driven under normal driving conditions. If needed, the system will shift up to 60% of the torque to the front axle.
Alfa Romeo claims a 0-62mph (100km/h) time for the petrol Giulia Veloce in 5.2 seconds, which sounds fast enough for most customers that can’t necessarily stretch for the big Quadrifoglio model.
The company will gradually start to offer the new Giulia Veloce across all markets in Europe, Middle East and Africa regions with the pricing to be announced in the coming days. You can find also Evo’s video tour of the new performance four-door sedan linked below.
