New Alfa Romeo Giulia to be priced from £29,180

Alfa Romeo today announced that the new Giulia will be priced from £29,180 when it goes on sale later this year, with the hotly-anticipated 510hp Bi-Turbo weighing in at £59,000.

The new rear-wheel-drive Giulia will be offered in five trim levels in the UK – Giulia, Super, Tecnica, Speciale and Quadrifoglio – with four engines (two petrol, two diesel), and in a choice of 13 exterior colours.

Entry-level models wear 16-inch alloy wheels and feature LED rear lights, cloth seats, cruise control, climate control, 6.5-inch Uconnect media system with DAB digital radio, automatic headlights and wipers, and a host of safety features such as Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition.

Super models gain 17-inch alloy wheels, 8.8-inch navigation display, aluminium door sills, leather seats, and two-tone dash and door panels.

Tecnica adds chrome window surrounds, power seats, privacy glass, front and rear parking sensors with rear-view camera, and a climate pack which includes a cooled glovebox, rear air vents and an air quality system.

Speciale models go further with 18-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, aluminium for the pedals, tunnel cover and door mouldings, plus gloss black window surrounds, heated leather sports seats and steering wheel, heated washer nozzles, rear diffuser, and red brake calipers.

Topping off the range, the Quadrifoglio rides on 19-inch alloy wheels and features Active Suspension, sports-styled bumpers, special leather and Alcantara sports seats, upgraded bi-xenon headlights with LED DRLs, and additional safety kit.

The entry model is available only with a 200hp 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine, while the Super can also be specified with a 2.2-litre turbodiesel in either 150hp or 180hp guise.

Tecnica models are 2.2-litre diesels only of 150hp and 180hp, while Speciale is offered exclusively with the 180hp diesel.

Not surprisingly, the Quadrifoglio features the 2.9-litre Bi-Turbo V6 and its heady 510hp.

All models power the wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
