2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Review


Alfa Romeo Giulia arrives in Tysons Corner, Virginia

It’s here…finally! Alfa Romeo has been teasing the public with their first saloon car for the US market for what feels like ages. We have seen these sneak peek videos on YouTube promising us a 4-door sedan that will blow the doors off its BMW and Mercedes-Benz counterparts. Patiently we’ve sat in our empty garages imagining the glorious symphony of this Nurburgring record holder The melody being so precisely played by a 505hp bi-turbo V6, the bass line provided by the sheer obliteration of the high-performance tires tasked with containing the 505hp beast under the hood. Are you with me? Can you smell the pungent smell of the rubber, mixing with the sweet smell of high-octanepetrol?

Well the wait is over. The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is finally here. Safford of Tysons Corner has their Alfa Romeo Giulia in stock and for sale. And we must say that it is everything we could have imagined – and more. The Giulia is truly one of the most beautifully styled saloon cars on the market. Alfa Romeo promised to return to the US in style, and this vehicle certainly lives up to that promise.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia: World-Class Performance and Design

The Giulia is a beautiful mix of style, performance and technology. The exterior sculpted with beautiful classic Italian curves, touches of carbon fiber and massive 19-inch wheels at all four corners. Climb into the cockpit and find that the driver is the center of the universe. Sports seating wrapped in Alcantar, leather, and carbon fiber hold you down. Choose your drive type with Alfa Romeo’s Alfa DNA Pro chassis control, and hold on to the flat-bottom racing wheel in front of you. Smash your right foot down and unleash what can only be described as the siren calls of the Italian muse long missing from the US shores.

You would think with a 3.8 second 0-60 time, and 505hp, this Italian was chugging petrol like an American V8. But even in this the Italians have kept it classy, making sure to swill and sip the petrol like a fine wine. World-class aerodynamics and fuel management keep you in the seat having fun, instead of refueling at every stop.
