The new performance sedan will offer both gasoline and diesel engines, and depending on the trim level, models with more or less power. However, all of these will provide more than enough excitement when behind the steering wheel. Therefore, if you are looking for you next performance car, why not take a look at the new 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia?
Exterior Design & Basic Info
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia looks amazing. The new performance sedan looks both modern and conventional at the same time. While the basic design lines are similar to the ones seen on every Alfa Romeo, the details, curves and special touches are really attractive, up-to-date and unique. The design is almost flawless – the new 2017 Giulia is a true example of distinctive and amazing Alfa Romeo design.
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is not just a pretty sedan, though. The new model also brings some interesting engineering solutions which should help it improve its performance. To start with, the new sedan will have a perfect 50/50 weight distribution. This will provide better precision and stability. In addition, the manufacturer used a lot of lightweight materials, such as aluminum and carbon fiber. Thanks to this, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia will have improved fuel efficiency, but it will also come with another interesting feature. According to the manufacturer, the new performance sedan comes with the best weight-to-power ratio of less than 3 kilograms per horsepower (around 6.6 pounds per horsepower).
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia presented in Italy wears a Quardofoglio badge. In Italian, this means four-leaf clover. Here, the badge indicates that this is the best version of the presented model.
2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Performance
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrofoglio is powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine. This mill is also used for the Maserati Quattroporte. The aforementioned engine can generate an astounding 510 horsepower. It is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox for a true racing experience and it can speed up to 62 mph from a standstill in just 3.9 seconds.
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia will also offer some other engines, mostly from the four-cylinder range. It will also come with a diesel mill which will be offered to the European buyers. Though these engines will be less powerful than the aforementioned V6 mill, they will still be capable of producing enough ponies for an exciting and memorable drive.
Moreover, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia will also come with necessary systems in order to provide the sporty and edgy performance we all expect. The manufacturer stated that the new model will come with Torque Vectoring system for superb stability control, Integrated Brake System and Active Aero Splitter for excellent high-speed downforce management.
