2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia Gains New Styling Packages, Additional Equipment

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is entering its third model year in the United States and the company is introducing a handful of updates for 2019.

Since the car is still relatively new, this year’s changes are minor and include newly standard 19-inch aluminum wheels on the Giulia Ti Sport. The high-performance Giulia Quadrifoglio goes a bit further as it now comes equipped with split-folding rear seats and anodized brake calipers featuring a red Alfa Romeo script.

Those changes are hardly worth mentioning but the model will also be offered with a handful of new packages. First up is the Nero Edizione package which adds dark miron accents to the grille, mirror caps and badges on the Giulia and Giulia Ti. The package also includes dark headlight bezels, black window trim and dark aluminum wheels which are contrasted by black, red or yellow brake calipers.

The Nero Edizione package is also available on the Giulia Sport, Ti Sport and Quadrifoglio. There are subtle differences between the models, but they all have dark miron accents and dark five-hole aluminum wheels.

Buyers looking for a sportier appearance can opt for the Ti Sport Carbon package on the Giulia Ti Sport. It includes a carbon fiber grille insert, carbon fiber mirror caps and carbon fiber side skirts. The model also has dark headlight bezels, exhaust tips and 19-inch aluminum wheels.

The carbon fiber theme continues in the cabin as drivers will find carbon trim and illuminated door sill plates with carbon fiber surrounds. The package also includes a leather-wrapped dashboard and accent stitching.

A carbon fiber exterior package is new to the Giulia Quadrifoglio and it includes a carbon fiber grille insert, carbon fiber mirror caps and dark miron badging.

Aside from the new packages, the 2019 Giulia lineup will be offered with several new options including heated rear seats and a premium alarm system. Other options include new wheels, a revised color palette and an Ice-on-Ice interior.

Engine options carry over, so the Giulia and Giulia Ti have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 280 hp (209 kW) and 306 lb-ft (415 Nm) of torque. The Giulia Quadrifoglio, on the other hand, has a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 with 505 hp (377 kW) and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque. This engine enables the latter model to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 191 mph (307 km/h).

    Wow 3 years already?! For car that has been around this long I barely see any on the UK roads

    • Andrewthecarguy

      I don’t think it is selling well. Don’t see many on US roads either.

      • disqus_CRkG23jjbo

        i have seen a few around but if its a 3 series, i see them in every lane on the highway. i am curious what the used car value will with the 3rd year coming out.

        They are selling around 10,000 a year in the USA (2017) . About the same as the Jaguar XE. However whilst Jaguar XE sales have faltured in the USA, Alfa Romeo Giulia sales have increased in 2018
        BMW sold around 60,000 3 series in 2017.

        I am not surprised you have not seen one. They are still very exclusive. i.e under 20,000 on USA road

    Where is the middle child model with 350hp?

    • Andrewthecarguy

      Exactly. That is a miss on their part…

    • LeStori

      “Coupled to the Giulia Veloce’s 2.0-litre turbo, the ERS setup increases output from 206kW to around 257kW”
      This is supposedly for the Giulia Coupe. So I suspect that is the 350bHP engine people have been talking about as 257KW=345bhp.

    Still no Android Auto??

    • Mike Hunt

      The 2018 and 2019 have it.

      • ctk4949

        Hmm OK, good. 🙂

  • An Existing Person

    Since its release i’ve been saying the Giulia needed a middle-model to narrow the power and price gap between the Quadrifoglio and the base model. Alfa needs this if they want to compete with the likes of the C43/340i/S4/XE-S/Q50RS.

    No many here in Canada too ..I think this is one of the reasons why my Quadrifoglio is really a head turner.
