2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Lineup Arrives in Australia
Following the announcement of the all-new Alfa Giulia in the United States, the Italian based carmaker has also introduced the entire fleet in Australia as well, with four versions to be available.
If in the United States there are only three variants available at the moment – the standard Giulia, Ti and the top of the line QV – in the Land Down Under, the same Giulia is now offered in four trims – Giulia, Super, Veloce and the same topper Quadrifoglio. Prices for all will be announced prior to the car`s arrival in dealerships, next February.
In Australia, all variants will be offered with standard features, yet each one will gradually add more goodies, depending on the type of packages available.
The entry-level 2017 Giulia comes with bi-xenon headlamps, 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, automatic wipers, satellite navigation, reverse camera, keyless entry and so on, while the engine comprises a 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four with 147 kW and 330 Nm of torque. This allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds.
On the other hand, the mid-level Giulia Super adds more features, such as new interior tweaks, including heated steering wheel, eight-way adjustable driver`s seat or active cruise control. Under the hood, this particular variant is equipped with the same 2.0-liter turbo engine with 147 kW and 330 Nm of torque, adding as well a flat-four turbo diesel pot, with 132 kW and 450 Nm of torque.
Next, the Veloce, stands out from the crowd with 19-inch alloys and red brake calipers, adding custom Alfa DFC adjustable suspension system, limited-slip differential and new braking system, aluminum inserts inside, sport leather seats and so forth. The engine comprises a 2.0-liter turbo flat-four with 206 kW and 400 Nm of torque.
Finally, the top of the line 2017 Giulia QV needs no presentation, the high-end variant literally blowing away its direct competitor, the BMW M3, with an impressive carbon fiber exterior and interior, and worthy performance under the hood. We are looking here at a Ferrari-powered 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine, with whopping 375 kW and 600 Nm of torque, enough to deliver a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds, at a topping of 307 km/h.
