Alfa Romeo Giulia mid-size sedan debuted this summer!

Rivalled with BMW 3-Series, Audi A4, Cadillac ATS and Infiniti Q50, the stunning Alfa Romeo Giulia mid-size sedan debuted this summer.

With its V-shaped grille, gorgeous smooth lines and double-take styling, the Giulia was created in a bright Italian style relieving the sedan segment of the market. The new high-performanced Alfa Romeo would be ordered in two trims, one of which is the Quadrifoglio. The rear-wheel-drive model is equipped with a Turbo V-6 engine taken from Ferrari that producing 505hp and 443 pound-feet of torque. The sedan will sprint accordingly from 0 to 60mph in 3.8 seconds featuring a six-speed manual transmission and superior rear balance to improve the performance. The Giulia suggests updated Brembo brakes, solid handling and 19-inch wheels for ultimate passengers’ comfort. Two modes (Race and Dynamic ones) with 4-drive settings tune more aggressive model driving style.

If speaking about the interior, it comes to leather upholstery, an 8.8-inch infotainment screen with three-dimensional navigation system, a higher safety level thanks to updated emergency stop-and-brake system, lane departure warning and blind-spot monitoring. All-side (rear and front) parking sensors as well as a system of cruise control are also to be noted.

It is expected the Alfa Romeo Giulia (Quadrifoglio specifically) to enter the market in 2016 with a maker's pricing of about $70,000.
