The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia starts under $38,000

If you want the 505-horsepower Quadrifoglio version, though, it's going to cost a pretty penny.

The 2017 Giulia marks Alfa Romeo's return to mainstream US sales, following the release of the 4C sports car. We know it's a great car to drive, and now we have an idea of how much it costs.

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia will start at $37,995. That's for the base model, which uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine good for 280 horsepower and a 0-60mph time of 5.1 seconds. Standard equipment includes a leather interior, a carbon fiber driveshaft and a 6.5-inch infotainment display. All-wheel drive adds $2,000, and you can get a sportier look with the $1,250 Sport Exterior Package.

No two bones about it, this is one pretty sport sedan.

The next step up is the Giulia Ti. This one starts at $39,995, and it adds larger wheels, wood interior accents, a heated steering wheel and front seats, as well as an 8.8-inch widescreen infotainment setup. All-wheel drive is again a $2,000 upgrade, and there are two packages available for $2,250 each. The Ti Sport Package gives the car a sportier look, while the Ti Lusso Package aims for more luxurious amenities.

If speed is what you're after, you'll want to opt for the Giulia Quadrifoglio. This model adds a 505-horsepower, 2.9-liter turbocharged V6 engine, which brings the 0-60 time down to 3.8 seconds. It's positively lousy with carbon fiber both inside and out, and it comes with larger Brembo brakes, sport seats and a Race mode. Of course, performance is costly, and the Giulia QV is no exception -- the MSRP for this one is set at $72,000.

While that might seem like a lot, it's pretty competitive. The BMW M3 starts around $64,000, but when you option it out to include all the kit you'd get in the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV, the price quickly climbs past $72,000. So, in terms of the competition, it's pretty spot-on.

The Giulia QV goes on sale this month, just in time for lots of snow to hit the ground. The base Giulia and mid-range Giulia Ti go on sale in January.

Update, 2:25 p.m. Eastern: The base infotainment screen was originally described as being 7.0 inches, when it is, in fact, 6.5 inches.
