Premium compact sedans are numerous these days, but just a few of them can match Giulia’s spectacular performances and overall driving experience. Originally introduced in 2015, this model is getting close to the middle of the production cycle.
Therefore, many reports suggest that the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia could get a mid-cycle refresh. Although we are still waiting to hear something from the officials, we may presume that the potential update would be pretty much about visual updates, while the mechanical aspect of the vehicle would remain the same.
- Spectacular handling
- Elite performances with V6 engine
- Stylish exterior
- Intuitive tech features
- Rivals feature better interior quality
- Tight rear seats
The potential mid-cycle update would bring mostly aesthetical changes, as we already mentioned. Therefore, this should be a typical facelift, with most of the updates at the front end. We can count on modifications on areas like the grille, front bumper and maybe even headlights.
The rear end could receive a couple of updates as well. Of course, we should see updates in terms of new color options and wheels as well. On the other side, the mechanical aspect of the vehicle should remain untouched. The 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia will continue to ride on a familiar Giorgio platform and keep with its spectacular driving characteristics.
On the inside, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia will probably receive just a couple of updates, in terms of new color schemes and similar things. The rest of the cabin should remain the same. It is stylish, but some rivals feature higher-grade materials. When it comes to the interior space, front seats are pretty impressive, while the rear bench is a little bit tight, just like the cargo area.
New tech goodies are among possible updates as well. Still, the current model already comes with pretty much everything you can imagine, starting from an 8.8-inch touchscreen with a super-intuitive infotainment system and numerous connectivity features.
In North America, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia will continue with two familiar gasoline engines in the offer. Base models will come with a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four unit that delivers around 280 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. Of course, count on the famous Quadrifoglio as well.
This version comes with Ferrari’s amazing 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that delivers impressive 505 horsepower, which turns Giulia into an elite sports sedan that delivers spectacular performances. Practically, the BMW M3 is the only model that can keep up with the Giulia Quadrifoglio. On the other side, Mercedes-Benz AMG models are way behind.
In some other parts of the world, this sedan will be available with a less-powerful version of a turbo-four engine, which delivers around 200 horsepower and 245 pound-feet of torque. There is a diesel version as well, which comes with a familiar 2.2-liter unit, which comes in various output variants.
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Release Date and Price
Despite the possible facelift, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia shouldn’t come before the last quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, base models should go around 39.000 dollars.
