The Alfa Romeo Giulia
Athletic contours, a vibrant spirit and state-of-the-art technology all combine to make the Alfa Romeo Giulia one of the most desirable cars on the road.
With its ergonomic features and dynamic performance, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is a sleek executive saloon puts the driver at the heart of everything.
What is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Super?
Alfa Romeo’s Giulia has gained something of an instant cult-status thanks to the high-performance Quadrifoglio model — but this is the model it hopes will bring home the bacon, the Super.
For the Giulia to be considered a commercial success, the Italians will need to lure customers from established mid-sized German cars such as the Audi A4, BMW 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class over to the brand.
Alfa’s last attempt to capture that market came in the form of the 159, which failed to make an impact — it’ll be hoping things are different this time around.
The only thing not-quite-so-new about the Giulia is the name — last used in 1978.
The saloon is the first car sporting an Alfa badge to use a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive setup since 1992, on the 75 compact saloon.
In the case of the Super, there are also three new four-cylinder engines for the Italian brand. A 2.0-litre petrol version is on offer and starts the range, with two 2.2-litre diesel units available.
Other models include the Veloce — which packs a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol and the range-topping Quadrifoglio, propelled by a 2.9-litre V6 engine.
What’s it like to drive?
The Giulia manages to feel nimble despite the saloon car size, which lends itself well to spirited driving. Switch to Dynamic mode, and the steering becomes well-weighted and the suspension firms up to provide an engaging experience — although a little more feel through the wheel would be appreciated.
Fancy taking it easy? Switch the rotary dial to Normal and you’ve now got light — but not overly so — steering to get around without hassle, and softer suspension settings, which provide a supple ride. Visibility around the car is great too, which bodes well for town driving and parking.
All Weather mode takes that and adds more sensitivity to the car’s safety assistance, which does come over as intrusive at times.
How does it look?
The Alfa Giulia takes classic design style cues from the manufacturer’s historically stunning cars and brings them into a modern and sharp package.
Everything is well-proportioned and it’s a dramatic thing to look at from any angle. If street cred is something you want from your mid-sized saloon, look no further.
Sadly, the fit-and-finish of the bodywork is far from that of the Giulia’s rivals, with thick panel gaps somewhat disrupting the otherwise clean styling.
There’s also the badge appeal that comes with owning an Alfa Romeo and you’ll no doubt stand out from the crowd on most roads.
