All the way back in 1962, Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo introduced a new four-door compact luxury sedan that was every bit as sporty as it was premium. That vehicle ran for more than a decade and a half before getting discontinued in 1978; but, nearly four decades later, the company reintroduced the nameplate with an even sleeker and sportier aesthetic. Now, the outstanding 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia is available right here in Germantown MD.
The new Giulia was introduced in the middle of 2015 and it launched to market the following February. Since then, it earned second place in the 2017 European Car of the Year awards and was ultimately named Motor Trend Car of the Year in 2018, both very prestigious honors.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has certainly come a long way since that little executive car back in the early ‘60s. Now, the standard Giulia is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine that’s capable of generating up to 280 horsepower alongside 306 pound-feet of torque while still achieving 24 miles per gallon through the city and 33 mpg on the highway. Those power ratings are not only the best in the Giulia model’s class, but the enable the all-wheel-drive model to get from 0-60 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds, or the rear-wheel-drive models to do the same in 5.5s. Regardless of drivetrain, the Giulia can hit a top speed of 149 mph.
Not everything revolves around power and performance, though. While the Giulia certainly delivers an abundance of both, it's still a premium, luxury sedan and it offers the kind of features to match that designation. This includes things like its recently updated center console, its Active Driver Assistance Package – which delivers level 2 autonomy, the ability to charge your mobile device wirelessly on the go, the 8.8” touchscreen display audio system with available 3D navigation and so much more.
