Alfa Romeo Giulia TOPS Crash TEST

Alfa Romeo Giulia has just qualified for the highest award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with optional front crash prevention and curve-adaptive headlights.

To earn the TOP SAFETY PICK+ award, a vehicle must have good ratings in all five crashworthiness tests small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and an acceptable or good headlight rating.

Giulias built after May 2017 meet those criteria. At that time, the car’s front-end structure was modified and the door hinge pillar and door sill were reinforced to improve occupant protection in small and moderate overlap front crashes. The head restraints and the front crash prevention system also were changed, and headlight aim was readjusted at the factory.

The Giulia’s optional front crash prevention system earns a superior rating. The vehicle avoided a crash in the 12 mph IIHS track test. In the 25 mph test, its impact speed was reduced by an average of 24 mph. The system also has a forward collision warning component that meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration criteria.

The car’s optional curve-adaptive headlights earn a good rating, while the base headlights rate poor.
