http://www.motortrend.com/news/2017-alfa-romeo-giulia-starts-38990/



Pricing has just been announced for the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia lineup. The base Giulia starts at $38,990, including $995 destination, but prices range all the way up to $73,595 for the high-performance Giulia Quadrifoglio.

The base 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 that makes 280 hp and 306 lb-ft of torque. All Giulia models come paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, as there is no manual option for the U.S. All-wheel drive, however, can be added for an additional $2,000. The Giulia comes standard with leather seats, HID headlights with LED daytime running lights, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, smart keyless entry with push-button start, a 7-inch color TFT display, and remote start function. A Sport Exterior package adds special front and rear fascias, 18-inch aluminum sport wheels, gloss-black window trim, and painted brake calipers for $1,250. The base Alfa Romeo Giulia just barely undercuts the BMW 330i, which starts at $39,745.

The Giulia’s halo variant, the Quadrifoglio starts at $73,595, including $1,595 destination. FCA tells us the Quadrifoglio receives a higher destination charge because the model is shipped in an enclosed carrier like the Alfa Romeo 4C. The Quadrifoglio’s starting price is $130 less than the Mercedes-AMG C63 S sedan, which is a closer match for the Alfa than the standard C63 or BMW M3. The Quadrifoglio boasts a 505-hp, 443-lb-ft twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6, as well as a hood, roof, rear spoiler, and side sills crafted from carbon fiber. The model also gets a carbon fiber active front splitter, DNA Pro selectable drive mode system with Race mode, an adjustable performance suspension, 19-inch alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, carbon fiber interior trim, and leather sport seats. That $73,595 also gets you bragging rights, as the Giulia Quadrifoglio currently holds the lap record for a four-door production car around Germany’s famed Nürburgring.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio goes on sale this month, while the base model and Ti arrive in January.

It's a good looking car but I can't think of any reason to get one over the less expensive BMW 330i

ETA: I checked out a Alfa 4C and while it was an awesome looking car on the outside I was not impressed with it otherwise. The carbon fiber construction is of course really cool but the rest of the interior did not feel like a $50k car should to me. Even your base BMW 2/3 series interiors are much nicer IMO. I suspect the same will probably be true for the Giulia since most of the other specs are pretty nice for the price point, they had to compromise somewhere.

ETA 2: I almost forgot the best part of the 4C: you can't see shit while driving it. The rear windshield is so tiny as to be useless, god help you if you need to back up.

Who cares, you're supposed to lease it for 1-3 years and then get a new one.

After checking out the Quadrifoglio with the manual trans at the NAIAS this January i'm pretty bummed it won't be offered in the US. Not that I have an issue with modern autos or clutch based manumatics but that would have been one hell of a sweet hell raising drivetrain.

Nice looking car and RWD.

People here talking about Alfa's base their experience on 1970's early 80's cars You could you know about recent Alfa's they have been out of the states forever haven't they ?

They and the British produced some very nice cars that were unreliable as hell and yep, the Italian electrics were as bad as the Prince of Darkness, Lucas.

Can't comment on the Giulietta. Wife had the old 147 and I Always liked the car and it never gave her any problems



She had a manual but the old automated slespeed transmission did have some issues.

I want them to take the drive train from the Quadrifoglio and build into a coupé to compete with the F-Type and such.

Maybe call it the 6C, since they did the 4C and 8C already.

You are incorrect. 200 and Giulia are both 4-door sedans made by Fiat Chrysler. Other than that they share nothing. Giulia is a rear-drive sedan on a new platform. 200 is a front-drive family sedan on a completely different platform.

The next gen LX is slated to be on this platform. Why pay 80k for one now when you can lease the same car with a hemi in a year or two for $99 per month? The charger is the vehicle of choice for "risky borrowers" here in the rust belt, especially with Pontiac and Mitsubishi out of the market.

As a 4C owner I can say thank you for not buying one! <img src=http://www.ar15.com/images/smilies/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

If this is what you were evaluating the 4C by you never would have been happy and resold and thus drove down the value of mine.

The 4C is a statement car. It is built by a company with a very rich racing history and even had Enzo Ferrari for a driver before he went on to other things you may have heard about.

The interior is almost an afterthought, the "sound system" is a turd. Don't even turn it on and listen the pops, gurgles and turbo whine all going on right behind your head.

It is a drivers car, it is not meant to be comfortable, cushy or let you forget your driving a car.

It is a high tech rocket ship full of F1 level of manufacture but all the tech is in making it go, stop and turn. There is no touch screens, heated seats, etc.

The cup holders suck, you shouldn't be drinking coffee when you're driving anyway.

Cruise control is an option, you are supposed to drive the car!

It is an incredible car for a small group of people willing to live with its shortcomings in exchange for the experience, the joy every time you climb in.

It's not a car in the traditional sense, it is a toy designed to do one thing and that is to make you feel good and it does that very well.

If you were comparing it to a BMW I would say you probably are not their target audience.

That being said, the Giulia looks awesome and if I wasn't so enamored with my 4C I would really consider trading it for a quadrafoglia
