The Alfa Romeo Giulia is not simply another new premium rear-wheel drive sedan - the reborn Giulia symbolises the continued rescue of one of motoring's most iconic brands.
Alfa Romeo is slowly returning to its glory days, and with the new Giulia it hopes to steer more shoppers away from well-established entry-lux sedans like the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. The Alfa Romeo name alone gives the Giulia an inherent air of exclusivity, but it backs up the expectations set forth by its Italian heritage and curvaceous styling with standout performance and driving dynamics. For buyers attracted to the hottest and newest cars a segment has to offer, the Alfa Romeo Giulia will never be as appealing as it is right now.
Its compact size, snug sport seats and responsive steering are the stuff of which legendary sports sedans are made.
The Giulia continues to impress. The Veloce or standard Giulia might not deliver quite the same pick-your-jaw-off-the-floor enjoyment and performance as the Quadrifoglio, but there’s still genuine fun to be had threading it down a twisty road, while contributing enough ease-of-use and refinement that it won’t drive you up the wall on your commute.
Dissect its talents and you’re left with a few stand-out features: steering, agility, response, and much most importantly, character! The steering has the biggest part to play in the driving experience, with a very fast rate of response and a level of accuracy that means you never fail to place the Veloce exactly where you want.
BUT, can the Giulia tow? Apart from the Quadrifoglio, you can tow up to 1600 kgs with your Alfa.
