Alfa Romeo unveiled its high-performance Giuliaat last year's , and since then, we haven't heard much about the non-performance variants coming to the US. That changes at this year's , when Alfa will finally debut the Giulia's more pedestrian trim levels.
There will be two "base" models -- the Giulia and the Giulia Ti (for Turismo internazionale). Both will be powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, good for 276 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. AWD is optional, and it appears the only transmission option is an eight-speed automatic.
Even though these are the "budget" trims, lacking the aggressive look and feel of the Quadrifoglio, there are some trick pieces of equipment included standard. For example, all Giulia models come with a carbon-fiber driveshaft, a leather interior and a 7-inch information display between the gauges. Infotainment for all three trims comes by way of either a 6.5- or 8.8-inch display.
If sportiness is what you're after, the Quadrifoglio delivers. It's putting out 505 horsepower from its 2.9-liter, twin-turbo six-cylinder engine, which can be mated to either the aforementioned eight-speed auto or a six-speed manual. This one looks far more aggressive, and it's got the equipment to match -- sport seats, adaptive suspension and Brembo brakes are all included. Track rats can add carbon-fiber Sparco race seats and carbon-ceramic brakes too.
All in all, the Giulia promises 13 exterior colors, nine different wheel designs, five seat styles and four trims. Whether you like your sport in large or small doses, it appears that Alfa Romeo will have something that appeals to you.
There are still no specifics in regards to price or date of availability.
