Will There Be A 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce With 350-HP?



It's ruled out for this year, but next year's a different story.
Right now you can head over to your local Alfa Romeo dealership and buy either a 280- or 505-hp Giulia sedan. Both are brilliant, especially the latter, but there’s definitely a power gap in between that really ought to be filled. As it turns out, Car and Driver has learned from Twitter user Bozi Tatarevic, who sourced Mopar Tech Authority (FCA’s OEM service site), that a new 350-hp 2.0-liter engine option could be in the cards for US buyers.



However, and this is important to bear in mind, this exact engine and output is also listed as being a part of FCA’s global service info. Point being, we don’t know yet whether or not it’s US-bound. Alfa Romeo’s US product communications manager, Berj Alexanian, clarified there are “No new plans for any other engines for Giulia in North America for 2018 model year besides the 2.0L and 2.9L versions.” Fair enough, but nothing was said about 2019 or beyond. It’s still a bit early to see 2019 model year vehicles arrive, so time will tell on this one. A mid-range 350-HP Giulia Veloce would certainly do the brand good, especially since one of the Giulia’s chief rivals, the BMW 3 Series, offers a trim with similar output.

Therefore, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this Giulia Veloce trim debut sometime next year, say at the 2018 New York Auto Show. Another plus side for potential buyers is price. The 505-hp Giulia QV only begins at nearly $80,000 - far out of reach for many. The base Giulia, on the other hand, starts at around $38k, so figure the Veloce starting at around $50-$55k.

Celtic Tuning Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio finally on the dyno!



Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBmKczK87ls


Every tuner has been struggling with these, some saying the engine doesn’t make the power, some saying they simply will not dyno… and yet here it is running in RWD only and it made an impressive 506bhp and 411lbft in stock tune! Getting this to run in RWD is complex and not simply a case of pulling fuses; you can’t run a Quadrifoglio in 2WD without software modifications. We have been developing on our Giulia since we got it back in March and we are more than happy with the current stage 1 software making an additional +82bhp and +46lbft. Dyno figures – 506bhp to 587.9bhp & 411.1lbft to 457lbft

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

This Italian sedan seduces the soul and sears the senses.



Overall Rating: [IMG]https://hips.hearstapps.com//amv-prod-cad-assets.s3.amazonaws.com/images/media/51/5-star-photo-673239-s-original.jpg?crop=1xw:1xh;center,center&resize=800 :*[/IMG]


The gorgeous Giulia Quadrifoglio seduces the soul and sears the senses with a beautiful balance of aggression and finesse. Alfa flaunts its racing pedigree with the four-leaf-clover badge displayed on the Giulia’s shapely flanks. Its Ferrari-derived twin-turbo V-6 sings a sinister tune, belting out 505 horsepower. Its clever, communicative chassis can conquer a race course with unfiltered ferocity or coolly traverse the tarmac without commotion. An excellent eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive are standard; sadly, a manual gearbox is missing. Alfa Romeo’s past and present reliability issues also remain an unknown quantity. Still, the Giulia Quadrifoglio, or QF, is an exotic sports sedan that sets a new benchmark for the genre—which is why it made our list of 10Best Cars for 2018.

Highs
  • Heartthrob body
  • mesmerizing motor music
  • transcendent sedan performance.

Lows
  • Unknown reliability
  • missing a manual gearbox
  • irksome interior bits and storage.
Verdict
  • An exotic sports-sedan superpower that transcends the genre.

What’s New for 2017?

Following Alfa Romeo’s drawn-out return to the U.S. market, which was led by focused sports cars like the 4C coupe, the company released an all-new sedan, the Giulia. At the same time, Alfa unleashed the Giulia’s white-hot Quadrifoglio counterpart on hi-po competitors such as the BMW M3, the Cadillac ATS-V, and the Mercedes-AMG C63. Unlike the lower-spec models, the track-tuned Giulia is only available with rear-wheel drive and features extensive carbon-fiber materials to save weight. It also proved its mettle by setting a record as the fastest sedan to lap the famous Nürburgring.
Trims and Options We’d Choose

No one is calling the Giulia Quadrifoglio ($73,595 to start) affordable, and direct rivals such as the ATS-V sedan ($61,690) and the M3 ($64,995) are cheaper. Likewise, the pint-sized Audi RS3—a wild card in this comparison—is a performance revelation for only $55,450. But the spiciest Giulia is an entirely different experience, with a seductive personality, nuanced driving dynamics, and a unique Italianate design. Those solely concerned with going fast for less can find a suitable alternative. We prefer a sedan that weakens our knees with its sexy styling and beguiles our minds with its 200-proof performance. Without adding a single option, the QF has a substantial list of standard equipment, such as:

• Heated and power-adjustable leather-trimmed front seats
• Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
• 8.8-inch infotainment screen with navigation
• Adaptive dampers and torque-vectoring rear differential


We’d love to opt for the carbon-ceramic Brembo brake package, but $8500 is too rich for our blood. The Driver Assistance Dynamic package ($1500), however, makes a lot of sense. It includes adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, and more. That elevates our total to $75,095.

Alfa Romeo Giulia review: 280bhp Veloce driven




Not seen an Alfa Giulia in that colour yet…
It’s called Misano Blue, and it’s exclusively available on the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce. In short, it’s the second sportiest Giulia on sale, sitting between all the rep-friendly diesels and the big-boy Quadrifoglio.
The basic stats are price, £38,260 before options, and power, which is 280bhp from a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine. That measures two litres in size, making it a bit bigger than the one you’ll find in the Alfa 4C.

So what’s this a rival to?
Tricky question, as its positioning within its own range matches the Audi S4, BMW 340i or Mercedes-AMG C43 (which all boast six cylinders). Its price and power peg it comfortably below them, though, while their four-cylinder siblings are all less potent than this Alfa.
Sitting in its own part of the market is kind of the Giulia’s thing, however; this is the car you choose when you’re bored of the German equivalents or simply put off by their me-too spec sheets and familiar styling.

How is it in reality?
There are plenty of influences from its angrier Quadrifoglio relation, which in turn are influences from the exquisite Ferrari 458 Speciale. There’s a starter button on the wheel, an adjustable driving dial that allows you to have comfort damping with the dynamic engine tune and big, fixed metal paddleshifters (some of which relies on you speccing the near-essential £1,950 Performance Pack).
There’s no Race mode, though, and this car doesn’t bark into life with the same aggression as its twin-turbo V6 sibling. With the drivetrain set into its middle, ‘Normal’ mode, the Veloce mooches along quietly, calmly and with little fuss.
Its eight-speed automatic gearbox is so smooth and seamless when left to its own devices, it almost feels like the single-speed transmission of an electric car. The soft suspension and supreme refinement add to the sense of relaxation you wouldn’t expect of a brightly coloured saloon with an offset number plate.

Little noise, little fuss… It sounds a bit boring.
On first acquaintance, I had the same worries. Yet at just 1,429kg – making the Giulia akin to a hot hatch, and at least 100kg fleeter of foot than its German rivals – it’s keen and alert should you want to drive in a livelier manner. The steering is really quick, the front end changing direction quite sharply, but it all feels quite natural. You soon get used to how eager the front is, and become keen to exploit it.
In fact, the front turns and grips so impeccably, it’s easy to get on the power quite early in a corner. Though while there’s lots of low-down torque from the engine, that doesn’t mean the driven rear axle is anything like as lively as the Quadrifoglio’s. The Veloce is too composed for such silliness, and you can’t loosen the stability control anyway.
As a car you drive for the hell of it, purely to quicken your pulse, the Veloce falls very short. As a super smooth daily runner that has a keen and agile chassis when you do want to drive the long way home, however, it’s expertly judged.
I have to refer back to the ride quality, as it’s so good. Anyone bred on S Line Audis might feel short changed by a car that doesn’t telegraph every pothole through the seat in HD, but those who really enjoy driving will love just how easily the Veloce shrugs off rubbish road surfaces. Its composure really sets it apart from its rivals.

Is it quick?
This is a brisk car – its 5.7sec 0-62mph claim feels a touch safe – and it does a good job of hiding its turbocharging. You rarely ever notice any lag in the power delivery, which is unfailingly urgent.
The engine calls time on its driver’s urgency too early, though. Peak power arrives at 5,250rpm, and the rev limiter sits just below 6,000rpm. Those are already modest figures, yet you’re rarely inclined to go near either. There’s satisfaction in batting between the gears with those lovely metal paddles, but do so purely on instinct and you’ll be changing up at something beginning with a four.

…in an Italian sports saloon?
Indeed. But this is no ordinary Italian sports saloon. It looks as wonderful as an Alfa four-door should – especially with this paint, a no-brainer £695 option – yet unlike all of its forebears in recent decades, there’s more to this car than a bit of style. There’s genuine talent and real, dynamic reasons to buy it over its rivals, which suddenly seem needlessly aggressive in their pursuit of performance.
It ought to be easy to spend a lot of time with, too. There are ergonomic quirks; highlights include some obstructive electric seat controls and indicators that are oddly reluctant to self-cancel. Alfa’s spent its presumably limited time and budget on the right parts, instead. The steering wheel, dashboard layout and dials are all delightfully simple, the kind of touch that makes driving something quickly that bit easier from the off.

So is it a cut-price Giulia Quadrifoglio?
Next to the arm-waving frivolity of its 503bhp sibling, the Veloce is a surprisingly relaxed car, smooth and quiet to the point of seeming meek when you first experience it. Its talents are buried a little deeper.
Rather than being the Giulia for those who can’t afford the big-hitting M3 rival, then, it’s the Giulia for those who find that all a bit uncouth. It’s a sports saloon of the subtly brilliant variety. It’s also another great Alfa Romeo.

Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti RWD review: Finally a sedan that stands out









  • The Giulia has a 280-horsepower, four-cylinder engine that can hit 60 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds.







Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti RWD review: Finally a sedan that stands out












Alfa Romeo has been the butt of jokes for years. Even-especially-during those years, it hardly sold any cars in the United States. (In 2016, it posted 516 total U.S. sales.)
Older Alfas are known for their propensity to rust and for any number of frustrating mechanical hiccups that happen with no apparent consistency or common theme, while electrical and software "issues" have plagued modern examples in recent years. (Then there was that embarrassing day at the track with BMW and Mercedes, which may have been an isolated event but wasn't great for street cred.)
But now the humble Alfistis in your life-your cousin, a friend at work-has a strong comeback. They can thank the Alfa Romeo Giulia. This is the car that will receive all the credit for (re) introducing Americans to the 107-year-old brand.

By now you've probably heard plenty about Giulia; the Italian-built sedan with the carbon-fiber driveshaft and baby Ferrari curves was the subject of those perfectly sexy television commercials and the winner of Motor Trend's coveted Car of the Year award for 2018.
I'm not going to gush about it as much as some Alfa fans and critics have. Those guys are nuts for Alfa Romeo. But it's true that along with the Stelvio SUV, the Giulia has worked like a charm in terms of bringing an audience back to the brand in the United States. Both are lithely chiseled machines, with dynamic performance from behind the wheel and comfortable, thoughtful interior technology and appointments. Last year, the Italian brand realized the biggest surge of any carmaker's sales in the U.S. for 2017, up 62 percent from the year prior.

Volkswagen's Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have nothing to worry about yet in terms of sales competition. Alfa Romeo Automobiles sold just over 12,000 cars in the U.S. last year, compared to more than 300,000 from BMW, and boasts only 177 dealers in the U.S., about half as many as the likes of BMW and Mercedes. Yet it is fair to say that the Giulia and its variants have stolen a share of the spotlight, at least for the time being.
By now, the Giulia as a model is not new. It debuted in late 2016 and started production in 2017. But it is worth examining the updated 2018 version, especially the Giulia Ti RWD edition, because it embodies this car's raison d'etre: to offer a bold, value-conscious, different-looking and -feeling alternative to the German-made sedans that have dominated the segment for decades.
The $41,145 Ti RWD edition gives you things the $40,095 standard version doesn't, such as heated seats, a bigger control screen, and remote vehicle start. A Ti Performance package, for $1200, adds active suspension and mechanical limited-slip differential. Those additions mean that while mine had the same 280-horsepower, four-cylinder engine as the base version, and they both get to 60 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds on the automatic, eight-speed transmission, the Vesuvio Grey model I drove felt especially light and responsive under duress.
Ask Giulia to mind its manners in traffic and down side streets? Fine. Push it to pass cars bigger and more powerful than it is-on paper, at least-up the highway? It'll do that, too, with pleasure. The suspension here is perfectly calibrated between tight and responsive; the steering feels as good as almost anything for which you'd pay $30,000 more. In general, Alfa Romeo has produced a sedan that drives far lighter and more athletically than expected, without feeling overstrung. If it's not quite better, it can at least hold its own with the big boys (BMW, et al). I have to say, it was pretty fun to be driving a sedan that is, for once, different and interesting. I think you'll like it, too.
New for 2018 on the Giulia line are chrome door speakers surrounding the cabin and 18-inch polished double Y-spoked aluminum wheels. Standard, too, are Apple CarPlay and Android Aut, plus front parking sensors bundled together with blind-spot monitoring and auto-dimming exterior mirrors. There's also a new cargo convenience package that comes optional with cargo netting and hooks inside the truck; a premium, 14-speaker Harman Kardon stereo is now offered as a $900 option on the Giulia and Giulia Sport.
Better yet, both the base model and the 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sport offer new tech such as an 8.8-inch display with 12 free months of SiriusXM satellite radio.
In fact, the Giulia Ti comes with many well-appointed trappings of luxury, one of its biggest strengths. Even the red-leather interior seats (which often look outré in sedans) and dark gray oak-wood trim on the dashboard and doors looked and felt great.
This is not to say that everything in the 2018 Giulia has been perfected. The brakes are way too soft; the joystick-like shifter feels plastic and cheap. The sport seats are cushioned so thickly you'll be hard-pressed to fit your hips and shoulders in them if you're much bigger than sample size. I felt like I was sitting on top of the car, rather than inside it. I have yet to really test the reliability over multiple years' worth of driving; reliability has been an issue with Alfa Romeo cars. And if you want the full Italian job, you'll have to fork over more than $50,000, which was the final price on the one I drove, once all the upgrades and fees were tallied.
If you can pay even more than that, opt for the 2018 Giulia Quadrifoglio. That sedan has the same sensuous body style, starts at $74,000, and justifies that price with high performance from a twin-turbocharged, 2.9-liter, V6 engine and Pirelli P Zero Corsa Asimmetrico 2 tires.
But if you want to drive something bold and beautiful, fun and efficient (27 miles per gallon, combined), step down one notch to the Giulia Ti RWD. It is a great option with value and style in the frequently too-vanilla premium sedan segment.

‘It’s not happy going slow’ — Alfa Romeo Giulia QV

There is much to like in Alfa Romeo’s long-awaited Giulia — especially the $150K QV’s engine, a V6 cut down from a Ferrari V8 — but there is an abiding query about quality.
PAUL & ALI GOVER





This is the car that Alfa Romeo has needed for more than a generation. The Giulia Quadrifoglio is a modern sports sedan that has to make almost no apologies, especially when it arrives as the QV powerhouse that’s set against the BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

THE PICK-UP
ALI: Wow, this is not your average family wagon. Is it completely new?
PAUL: Totally new and a different approach for Alfa Romeo. It’s trying to be mainstream luxury, up against the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the rest.
ALI: I love the look. It’s really grunty.
PAUL: It helps that we have the QV — for green cloverleaf — with what amounts to a cut-

Ali, Paul and Giulia: At $150K, it’s a heart-rules-the-head proposition.Source:Supplied

down Ferrari engine and all the go-fast gear.
ALI: So it’s a competitor for the C63? And probably the M3 from BMW, I’m thinking.
PAUL: Spot-on. It’s a little cheaper than the BMW and a fair bit under the Benz but any Alfa is still going to be a heart-over-head purchase based on the brand’s history.

THE BAGGAGE

ALI: I love the two-tone leather trim. The small, sporty steering wheel is comfortable to handle.
PAUL: The wheel is the best I’ve handled for a very long time and so much better than an AMG Benz. A little thing but it means a lot in a fast car.

Giulia cockpit: Sporty wheel, leather trim and upgraded (if fiddly) infotainment.Source:Supplied

ALI: I like the ease of this infotainment, which is a great upgrade for Alfa and distinct from other brands. I rate the audio, too, with a massive subwoofer in the boot.
PAUL: I find the infotainment too fiddly and the display area is tiny in a dash with lots of space.
ALI: OK, so I’m not so in-love with all the warning buzzers. The lane assist sounds like someone ate too many baked beans so I’d be looking to switch this off, making it a useless feature.

THE COMMUTE
ALI: As a city car, this would be a challenge for me. I find the way it lurches forward and the airconditioning turning on and off to save power is very annoying.

Giulia Quadrifoglio: The “green cloverleaf” references Alfa race cars.Source:Supplied

PAUL: It’s not happy going slow and even the brakes take a good hard shove at slow speeds. But the eight-speed double-clutch gearbox is smooth once you get rolling and there are plenty of modes — the track setting has the inevitable exhaust pop-bang.
ALI: Yes, but that’s not for commuting. It’s for show-offs.

THE SHOPPING
ALI: I’m not in love with the way this car tries to be fast all the time. Once it tried to lurch out of a shopping car park spot. I think they need to add a Zen setting for parking.
PAUL: The view is not great and I’m not impressed with the boot. It doesn’t have any sort of split-fold — even though I know that adds strength in a sports sedan, it’s a big compromise.

Alfa Giulia: Boot is compromised and reversing camera image is small.Source:Supplied

ALI: Now I agree with you about the infotainment display. The reversing camera is far too small and they have plenty of space they haven’t used.
PAUL: And did I mention that the seat-height adjustment switch fell out? It ruined my impression of the carbon-fibre sports buckets.
ALI: It happened on both sides. That’s terrible for any new car and it gets me thinking once more about Alfa Romeo horror stories.

SUNDAY RUN
PAUL: As a driving car, this thing is brilliant. The V6 turbo is fantastic, the chassis is so compliant and enjoyable, and it grips and goes in all conditions.
ALI: I took it up the mountain to visit my mum and it handles corners like a dream. It really

Alfa Giulia: Some queries, a few flaws but a brilliant drive.Source:Supplied

works well when you let the engine open up.
PAUL: For me, it’s more subtle than an AMG Benz and the engine is fantastic. Cutting down a Ferrari V8 to a V6 for Alfa is a big win.

THE FAMILY
ELI: I liked feeling all the turns in this car, like a computer game for real. I didn’t like the lack of a centre armrest.
PAUL: It’s not particularly practical. Just four seats and the compromised boot.
ALI: There is a surprising amount of legroom in the back but not a lot of head clearance for taller passengers.

THE TICK
ALI: Those switches have me worrying about the quality but it’s a fun car that gets a Tick from me.
PAUL: I’ve got a couple of friends who would plain love this car. I like it, despite some doubts, so it’s another Tick.

ALFA ROMEO GIULIA QUADRIFOGLIO

Giulia: Cheaper than BMW M3 and Benz C63.Source:Supplied

PRICE From $150,693 drive-away (costly but competitive)
SERVICE 3 years/150,000km, $2465 for 3 years (expensive)
ENGINE 2.9-litre V6 twin turbo, 375kW/600Nm (just plain wonderful)
SAFETY 5 stars, 8 airbags, AEB, lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert (what it needs)
THIRST 8.2L/100km (reasonable)
SPARE None; inflation kit (small fail)
LUGGAGE 480L (good; no split-fold)
