Alfa Romeo Giulia pricing announced: UK range to start at £29k

Published: 09 August 2016

► New Giulia range to start at £29k
► Petrol and diesel versions offered
► Flagship Quadrifoglio to cost £59k

Alfa Romeo has announced the pricing and specification for its recently launched Giulia saloon, which goes head-to-head with the likes of the BMW 3-series.

The UK line-up and pricing is as follows:

  • Giulia 2.0 Petrol Turbo 197bhp – £29,180
  • Giulia Super 2.0 Petrol Turbo 197bhp – £30,880
  • Giulia Super 2.2 JTDM-2  148bhp – £30,750
  • Giulia Super 2.2 JTDM-2 178bhp – £31,950
  • Giulia Tecnica 2.2 Turbo Diesel 148bhp – £30,995
  • Giulia Tecnica 2.2 Turbo Diesel 178bhp – £32,195
  • Giulia Speciale 2.2 JTDM-2 178bhp – £34,150
  • Giulia Quadrifoglio 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo 503bhp – £59,000

How competitive is the pricing? 

Pleasingly, the Alfa’s on a par with many of its rivals. At the entry-level point, BMW’s similarly specified 320i Sport clocks in at £29,300. At the other end of the scale, a dual-clutch BMW M3 would set you back £59,100 – again, close to the Alfa’s pricing. Equivalent offerings from Jaguar and Mercedes also fall within a similar ballpark.

What’s the standard kit list like?

The entry-level Giulia gets 16-in wheels, a 6.5-in media system, cloth seats, cruise control, DAB, dual-zone climate, rear parking sensors and several safety systems. Move up to Super and you’ll benefit from a larger 8.8-in media system with sat-nav, part leather trim, dual chrome exhaust tips, 17-in wheels and aluminium door sill protectors.

Tecnica models pack a whole host of upgrades, including power seats, rear air vents, front and rear USB ports, front parking sensors, a rear-view camera, tinted glass and a cooled glovebox. Alfa’s  upmarket ‘Speciale’ builds on that kit list further with bi-Xenon lights, a host of trim upgrades leather sports seats, 18-in wheels and a sports bodykit. 

Lastly, opt for the flagship Quadrifoglio and – as well as that lusty twin-turbo V6 – you’ll get 19-in wheels, leather and Alcantara sports seats, a host of cosmetic and chassis upgrades, blind spot monitoring and autonomous emergency braking.

When can I get my hands on one? 

Alfa says that the new Giulia range goes on sale later this year, with the first deliveries expected shortly afterwards.
