Used Alfa Romeo Giulia for sale
But the Giulia is much more than middle ground between Alfa Romeo's other models. Introduced in 2016, the Giulia competes well against its better-known rivals thanks to a range of great features, such as:
- A simple engine line-up
- An excellent safety rating
- Well-equipped as standard
- Sporty driving experience
Discover the benefits of the Alfa Romeo Giulia in more detail below.
Engines and Driving Experience
A number of weight-saving tactics have been used within the Giulia to give it a sportier, more responsive drive. There are three driving modes to choose from (Dynamic, Natural and Advanced Efficiency), allowing the driver to select a mode that offers them their preferred balance between comfort and performance.
Coming with both petrol and diesel variants, Alfa Romeo have decided to keep things simple. The petrol variants come in the form of a 2.0-litre turbo with either 197 or 277bhp. If you need a diesel for better fuel economy, you'll receive a 2.2-litre turbo with 148 or 178bhp, that's also capable of returning up to 53.3mpg.
All variants are fairly quick, but if you're after maximum performance then the Quadrifoglio is the one to go for as it comes with a 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine that produces 503bhp. This allows the car to go from 0 to 62mph in a mere 3.9 seconds.
Practicality and Running Costs
Being a saloon, the Giulia naturally comes with a good amount of space within the cabin. A decent amount of head and legroom throughout means occupants can enjoy the dynamic ride in comfort. However, taller adults may find it a bit of a squeeze if sat in the back.
480 litres of boot space is enough for the Giulia to compete against its rivals in that department, too. If you're carrying larger bits of luggage, you can fold the rear seats down to give you more space. A number of storage compartments can also be found around the interior, but these are often less practical than those you'd find in competitors.
The Giulia's sporty drive means running costs can be pricey, but they're not unreasonable. Insurance starts at group 22, but rise to the maximum group 50 if choosing the powerful Quadrifoglio variant. All Evans Halshaw dealerships are well-equipped to take care of any servicing or maintenance requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
In recent times, Alfa Romeo have delivered some exquisite designs and the Giulia's interior definitely follows suit. The infotainment system is slightly angled to the driver's side, giving the interior a driver-focused feel. It's also seamlessly blended into the dashboard, giving a more premium flavour to the interior.
When it comes to technology, the Giulia doesn't fall short. Features such as Alfa Connect 3D Nav and parking assist come as standard on entry-level models. Higher specifications unlock further benefits such as active cruise control and full-leather seats, which enhance the premium feel even further.
The Giulia scored the full five-star safety rating during Euro NCAP's rigorous test procedure, thanks to a range of handy safety technology, including:
- Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Rear view camera
- Driver Assistance Pack (including automatic high beam assist and active blind spot assist)
Is the Alfa Romeo Giulia right for me?
If you're after a stylish saloon that possesses an engaging driving experience and a premium feel, then the Giulia is a top contender.
Its obvious rivals come from Germany and include the well-known BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which offer similar levels of quality to the Giulia. If you're working with a smaller budget but still want a vehicle that offers luxury, the Skoda Superb and Ford Mondeo Vignale are worth a look.
