Alfa Romeo has announced pricing for its Giulia sports sedan range, which runs to five variants spanning four equipment grades, all with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.
The 147kW/330Nm 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder Giulia opens the range at $59,895.
A pair of Giulia Super variants flesh out the middle of the line-up, offering 2.0-litre turbo petrol ($64,195) and 450Nm 2.0-litre turbo diesel ($65,895) versions - the latter trimming consumption from the petrol’s 6.0L/100km to 4.2L/100km.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce sits atop the mainstream model line with a high-output 206kW version of the 2.0-litre petrol turbo and a $71,895 price tag.
The M3-hunting twin-turbo V6 Giulia Quadrifoglio crowns the range at $143,900 – more than the regular BMW M3 and line-ball with the M3 Competition while undercutting the Mercedes-AMG C63 S.
Every Giulia gets standard leather trim inside, cruise control, and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, bi-xenon headlights, keyless start, stop/start, satellite navigation, dual-zone climate control and rain-sensing wipers.
Standard safety runs to forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, pedestrian recognition and lane-departure warning systems.
A pre-paid maintenance plan is offered for either three or five years. The upfront payment can be included in vehicle financing and brings a discount of 15 percent over five years.
The Giulia is now available across Alfa Romeo’s Australian dealer network, which was recently refined from 48 to 16 locations in an effort to provide a high-level customer experience in line with the brand’s premium aspirations.
