Current Model
Alfa's compact luxury sports sedan corners and steers like a sports car. The 280-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and provides punchy acceleration in both rear- and all-wheel drive versions.
The firm ride absorbs most bumps, but it's less plush than that of many competitors. Fuel economy is commendable at 27 mpg overall. The attractive interior has matte wood and nicely textured surfaces. Seat comfort is compromised by a short cushion and limited range of adjustments, and the cabin isn't as quiet as that of its peers. Alfa recently made the infotainment system more user-friendly. The high-performance Quadrifoglio version is even sportier, but at the expense of comfort. FCW and AEB with pedestrian detection are standard.

2017 Redesign Year
The Giulia is Alfa's entry in the compact-luxury-sport-sedan segment. It corners and steers like a sports car, making it fun to drive.
The 280-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four is mated to an eight-speed automatic and provides punchy acceleration even in the all-wheel-drive version. Ride comfort is civilized even though it has a firm edge. Fuel economy at 27 mpg overall is one of the best in the class. The interior is attractive with matte wood and nicely textured surfaces but cheap switchgear detracts. The infotainment system is too convoluted and distracting. Seat comfort is compromised by a short cushion and limited range of adjustments. The trunk is small. The top-trim, high-performance Quadrifoglio version uses a 505-hp, 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 and ups the ante in the sport quotient at the expense of comfort. Standard advanced safety features such as forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are new for 2020. A new 8.8-inch touch-screen infotainment system and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility are standard. Also added are interior trim enhancements, and a more user-friendly infotainment system.
