2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio Rises In Price By $1,500

U.S. buyers looking to gets the keys to an Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio will have to cough up more cash for the 2018 model year car, following confirmation that the sports sedan is now $1,500 pricier.

Cars Direct discovered that the price of the Giulia Quadrifoglio will rise from $73,595 (including a $1,595 destination charge) to $75,095. Fortunately, customers will enjoy two important upgrades for that little extra dough.

For 2018, the car will come standard with a 14-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.

In the 2017 car, these two features could be purchased for $1,400 so the 2018 Giulia QV is only really $100 more than the outgoing model.

The inclusion of the forward collision warning system also gives Alfa Romeo an edge over the Mercedes-AMG C63 and BMW M3. In the former, the Mercedes equivalent costs $4,450 while the M3 requires customers to spend $5,600 for the crash-avoidance technology.

      I can afford it and I’d buy the C63 or ATS-V over this.

          Most new cars are money pits, this is nothing new, it’s just a contest to see which is less of a money pit anymore, and luxury cars usually wind up being bigger pits than the likes of Toyota and Kia. Alfa’s are also gonna be bigger pits than Merc’s. AMG’s are also going to be bigger pits than the non-AMG models, unless we’re talking about G-wagons. Sedans also lose more money than SUV/CUV’s in today’s market.

    I really don’t understand why the price is going up if the car is such a piece of crap. Many of them have serious problems and AR isn’t doing anything with it.

      Simply not true, so stop spreading FUD.

            LOL how many FCA payed you for this crap infographics? It is on the top 10 because there are no more premium D segment cars on the european market. Only missing here is Infiniti and Cadillac which is a margin..

          • dragoneroscuro

            Do they pay you to say nonsense?

          • jarooo4

            Prove me that I’m wrong. Because I already proved that you are saying bullshit.

            I am the owner of Alfa Romeo Giulia veloce European Edition. I do not understand anything and you are a genius

            Wow. So what? And I’m an owner of a Mazda. I don’t have problem with rust which is a common problem in cars made by them. Still I will not say that rust problems aren’t true because I don’t have them.

          • dragoneroscuro

            Rust? All cars in the 70’s and 80’s rusted, including german and american cars. I closed the argument. Bye

        Actually it is true.

  • MPAMPIS

    the best sedan in the world ! i love alfa romeo giulia …..

  • Carmelo Van Cabboi

    The Giulia is priceless. She is such a masterpiece

  • eb110americana

    I realize that the performance of the Alfa really brings back some much needed spunk against the stalwart BMWs, Mercedes, and Audis–it has proven itself here–but the Giulia is a relative newcomer in this class. Reliability, resale value (cost of ownership), build quality, brand recognition after years of FWD models are all unproven. I feel like Alfa really needs to hedge their bets like Lexus did with the original LS or Nissan with the R35 GT-R by undercutting the competition. IMO, $75K is too big a pill to swallow for this.

    Patience. The relatively high price for this stellar piece of Italian automotive passion will only make it seem like a bigger bargin basement special in a few years …
