Alfa Romeo’s New Giulia Sedan, Global Unveiling This Week
Alfa Romeo’s new Giulia midsize sedan, which will be unveiled this week Wednesday will be very crucial to the struggling brand’s revival in the global market. This car has been long overdue and there have been some proposed images circulating the global net and we present here what we think will probably be the final look of the all new Giulia sedan.
The Giulia will sit on Alfa’s new rear-wheel-/all-wheel-drive Giorgio platform and offer high-performance engines, including a Maserati-derived V6 engine which is built in the Ferrari factory in Modena. Alfa will introduce newly developed high-performance engines on the sedan to compete better against BMW and Audi.
The range-topping 510hp V6 petrol engine with twin turbochargers has been re-engineered from an engine built by Ferrari for the Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli sedans. The Giulia’s core gasoline engine will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder available in outputs of 180hp, 250hp and 330hp.
The BMW 3 series rival is scheduled to arrive at European dealerships in February and March next year and in the U.S. a few months later. Alfa may add coupe and spider variants later. Code-named project 952 and delayed a number of times in the past four years, the Giulia is the successor to the Europe-only 159 model, which was discontinued in 2011.
