Centurion, 31 August 2022 – Alfa Romeo’s most-awarded cars ever, the Giulia and Stelvio have been lavished with some updates to keep the stylish Italian duo as attractive as ever.
Packed with the latest technologies and embodying Italian passion and sporting performance excellence, the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio have won over 170 international accolades and counting. Both cars are absolute leaders in their segments in terms of performance and dynamic response. The basic technical specification is – and remains – pioneering. As a result, the new Model Year cars shift their attention to the on-board experience, providing an increasingly pleasurable, safe and connected experience, allowing the brand to recapture its traditions of “elegant sportiness”. It is a recurring concept in Alfa Romeos from every era, expressing the perfect balance between form, function and driving thrills.
The most significant updates for the range include the replacement of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Super with the Stelvio Veloce, aligning the SUV range with the Giulia. A number of styling enhancements enhance the Veloce’s appeal even further with a body-colour exterior kit, black anodised brake calipers, matt dark exhaust tips, and monotone wheel centres.
Inside, the Stelvio Veloce sportiness is ramped up with a black roof lining, six-way electrically adjustable luxury sport seats with four-way lumbar adjustment and memory function for the driver. The infotainment system has been upgraded to eight speakers and luxury comfort is further enhanced with a hands-free tailgate.
Stelvio Q customers will still enjoy the 375kW V6 engine’s thrilling performance, but they will do so from carbon shell Alcantara sports seat from Sparco. It remains of the fastest SUVs in the world and now benefits from many of the other Veloce enhancements, including the hands-free tailgate.
Finding the perfect balance between driving experience and safety, the Stelvio proudly displays five-star Euro NCAP safety credentials with a score of 97% for the protection of adult occupants; the highest score in its class. Credited for its host of innovative safety systems, which come as standard, the Stelvio features Alfa Romeo’s segment-first Integrated Brake System, Autonomous Emergency Brake with pedestrian detection, Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning, and Lane Departure Warning.
The updated Giulia embodies the Alfa Romeo legend: cutting-edge and innovative engines; perfect weight distribution; unique technical solutions; the best power-to-weight ratio in class; and, of course, a truly extraordinary design with unmistakable Italian flair.
The Giulia range continues to feature two exciting models. The Veloce continues to be powered by Alfa Romeo’s all-aluminium 2.0-litre engine developing 206kW, transferring that performance through an eight-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels via a carbon fibre prop shaft.
That performance is further enhanced in the latest Veloce thanks to the addition of a limited slip differential as standard. If the driving enjoyment is even more exciting as a result, the onboard experience has also been upgraded with an eight-speaker high level audio system. The emotional experience only an Alfa Romeo can offer is enhanced with six-way electroncially controlled luxury sports seats, complete with four-way adjustable lumbar support and a memory function for the driver.
Alfa Romeo’s four-door supercar, the Giulia QV also becomes more appealing than ever with special features that make this 375kW beast even more exotic. New QVs will now come with Alcantara carbon shell sports seats by Sparco as standard, the theme being carried through to the exposed carbon fibre roof. Harmon Kardon sound will rival Alfa Romeo’s bi-turbo V6 in the sound department while the QV continues to offer 307km/h performance and 0-100km/h acceleration in just 3.9 seconds.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio comes with a 5 years/100 000km full warranty and maintenance plan as standard. Be seduced.
