First of all, we’d like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our blog. We really appreciate our readers and we hope you come back in the future for more similar articles.Today, we are going to take a look at the Alfa Romeo Giulia, which is scheduled to go on sale here in the UK later this year.
Although Alfa Romeo is world-renowned for its vehicles, in the recent yeas it has experienced disappointing sales. The, once-popular, brand has been struggling to keep afloat, with its 2013 sales totalling a disappointing 74,000.
According to various reports, the brand has been developing the new Alfa Romeo Giulia for a long time, however numerous delays have slowed the process down.
Fortunately, the project was put back on track after a €5 billion investment for an eight car line-up in hopes of boosting the brand’s sales to 400,000 by 2018.
The Giulia name has already been used by the brand in the past, however the new saloon is not connected to the previous Giulia.
The first model in the Alfa Romeo Giulia range to be revealed is the Giulia Quadrifoglio. It’s a high-performance saloon that made its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.
It comes with a 2.9-litre 90° V6 24v Twin turbo engine capable of producing 510 PS (503 hp; 375 kW) at 6,500 rpm. With a reported speed of 191 mph (307 km/h), the Quadrifoglio is guaranteed to satisfy those who enjoy speed.
The Giulia’s styling isn’t necessarily innovative or unique, however the vehicle does look elegant and slightly aggressive, which gives it a little character. We would definitely like to see something a little more unique when it comes to the design of the Giulia, but we can’t really complain as it looks intriguing enough to get people talking.
The new Giulia is scheduled to hit the dealerships in September, and we’re very excited.
It will be great to see the vehicle in all its glory. Although it isn’t the most innovative car ever made, its estimated £24,000 price tag is quite appealing. It’s a slightly cheaper model that offers a fantastic driving experience so it’s definitely worth the estimated £24,000.
