Introduced two years ago, the Giulia has instantly become one of the most popular small executive cars on the market. Characterized by amazing styling, as well as excellent driving dynamics, this model is a real refreshment on the market. Two years later, the company is working on the lineup expansion. So far, this model is available as a 4-door sedan only. Latest reports suggest we are about to see a coupe body style in the offer for 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia. Also, there is a chance to see a new engine in the offer.
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia shouldn’t change a lot. It will ride on the same Giorgio platform, which provides amazing driving dynamics. A new coupe body style should stick to the familiar design language. According to some reports, this version is already in an advanced testing phase. With such addition, the 2020 Giulia will become far competitive with models like BMW 4 Series, which already comes in several body styles like sedan, coupe, Grand Coupe and convertible.
On the inside, 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia shouldn’t change a lot. Even the new coupe version should feature the same dashboard layout, though with a little bit less legroom on rear seats. Still, that probably won’t bother potential buyers too much. In terms of tech features, this model relies on a pretty simple and straightforward infotainment system, which won’t distract drivers too much. The weakest point is actually quality of some interior parts, which seems a little bit lower-grade, definitely not on the same level as German rivals Audi A4 or Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Still, the Giulia compensates all these interior weak points with superb driving dynamics and performances.
The current model comes with several engines in the offer and the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia will continue in the same way, if not add some new unit as well. The base engine is a familiar 2.0-liter turbo inline-four, which delivers around 200 horsepower. The same engine is available in a variant with 280 hp and 300 lb-ft of max torque. On the top of the offer, you can find an amazing 2.9-liter V6 engine from Ferrari, which delivers 503 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque. With such a huge amount of power, the Giulia needs only 3.5 seconds to reach 60 mph.
By looking at these numbers, you can notice a big gap in between two engines in terms of power. So, it seems very likely to see some additional engine in the offer, which will probably have an output somewhere between 350 and 400 horsepower, which is some kind of a standard in the segment.
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Release Date and Price
Considering a new coupe version, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia will probably come a little bit earlier than usual. Most likely, we will see it in the third quarter of next year. In terms of price, we don’t expect changes, so base models should be available at around $38,000.
