The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia Power Style

The luxury sport sedan segment in the US has long been one of the most important and desirable. Yet, despite so many big contenders, there have been few game-changers in this market. Until now.

Alfa Romeo's entry into this competitive segment, the 2019 Giulia, brings an unprecedented level of style and power that American buyers have been craving. With a selection of powerful yet refined engines, and the styling that Italian luxury carmakers have become known for, the Alfa Romeo Giulia hits all the right notes. While this true luxury sedan is more powerful and refined than many competitors even in its base trim, it is also available with the most powerful engine in its segment and a plethora of luxury and performance options.

Without further ado, let's take a look at the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Luxury Styling

On the outside, there's no confusing the Alfa Romeo Giulia with one of its American or European counterparts. This Italian-designed sports sedan features sleek lines that sweep back from its aggressive yet attractive front end. There's a "tightness" to the design that just screams quality, and the cabin rises stylishly from the sweep of the 2019 Giulia's hood. Alfa Romeo's styling is sure to turn heads, but it cuts a sophisticated outline that draws attention for its refinement.

And that style for which Italian luxury cars are known doesn't stop with the exterior.

Stepping into the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia, drivers can't help but be impressed with the material selection and overall design of the cabin. In true Italian sports car fashion, drivers of the 2019 Giulia are put in a commanding driving position, with total control of the vehicle easily within reach.

One big point that has impressed those who test drive this Alfa Romeo is the ease of use of its infotainment system. While some luxury brands go with a "more is better" approach, Alfa Romeo seems to understand that drivers want something that's actually easy to use while out on the road. When you're driving this Alfa Romeo Giulia, you'll want to concentrate on its thrilling driving dynamics, not navigating menus.

Powerful, Precise Performance

When buyers opt for a sports sedan like the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia, they expect precision handling, a well-tuned suspension, and plenty of power on tap. If you're coming from another luxury brand and test drive the 2019 Giulia, you'll know you came to the right place.

The Giulia's suspension is precision-tuned to offer a responsive driving experience, without turning every bump in the road into a pain. Drivers rave about the combination of comfort and that characteristic "tightness" we mentioned earlier. From the suspension to the weighting of the steering wheel, Alfa Romeo has gone to great lengths to make this a fun car to drive, whether you're commuting in the city or cornering like there's no tomorrow on the weekends. And the 2019 Giulia's powerful engine options don't hurt that effort one bit.

The Giulia starts off with a turbocharged 2.0l engine that makes an impressive 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque. Combined with impressive shift tuning, this engine makes quick acceleration a true pleasure. Compared to other luxury sport sedans in the same price range, many drivers find the Alfa Romeo offers better power and a more precise drive.

However, this wouldn't be an Italian sport sedan if it didn't have something more powerful up its sleeve. For those seeking the ultimate in performance for the class, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia brings the most powerful engine available in the segment. Designed by Ferrari, the 2019 Giulia's optional turbocharged 2.9l V6 engine brings a whopping 505 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. This Quadrifoglio model also comes with an extensive list of standard equipment, including performance-oriented upgrades like standard Brembo brakes, a special rear differential, and other changes to tame its impressive power.

Despite the incredible amount of "oomph" coming from the Giulia Quadrifoglio engine, it retains the precise handling that helps it stand above other vehicles in segment. Cylinder shutoff technology and an eight-speed transmission also help maximize efficiency of the powerful turbo, making it a much more practical choice than many vehicles with a similar level of power. With the 2019 Giulia, Alfa Romeo has left no stone unturned in its quest to take over the American luxury market, and it's pretty clear that their efforts are paying off handsomely.

Test Drive the Giulia

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia truly is a beautiful vehicle, but there's a lot more to this luxury vehicle than just its attractive looks. That's why so many Alfa Romeo owners, whether coming from another luxury brand or just starting on their sport sedan journey, have been won over by their first test drive of the 2019 Giulia. Drivers are often left gushing over its responsiveness, fun driving feel, and that "just right" feeling that is sometimes hard to put into words. Italian automakers are known for putting that extra something into their vehicles' designs, and the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia is truly a standard-bearer in the segment. Test drive one today, and you'll know just why.
