The updated Giulia will be landing in Australia in June, in Ti and Veloce forms, with the range-topping Quadrifoglio arriving later
Starting from $68,450 before on-road costs, the Ti is now the entry point into the Giulia range, with the mid-level Veloce starting from $74,950 before on-road costs.
Though Alfa Romeo Australia hasn’t announced pricing for the range-topping Quadrifoglio model, it was noted that it is due to land in Australian dealerships between October and December of this year.
Considering that pricing hasn’t changed for the current Veloce model, it could be possible that the updated Giulia Quadrifoglio lands in Australia at the same price point of $151,700 before on-road costs.
On the outside, the Giulia is a very familiar offering with the same overall aesthetic as the outgoing model.
Subtle exterior changes have only been made to the front of the sedan, and include new matrix LED headlights, and an updated finish on the three air intakes across the front fascia.
The same 19-inch alloy wheels are carried over from the last model and are standard across both Ti and Veloce grades.
Moving to the Veloce grade, the Giulia adds red brake calipers, a dark front bezel, and a bespoke rear diffuser.
It’s a similar story on the inside of the sedan, with most aspects carrying over from the pre-facelift model.
The biggest change here is the addition of a 12.3-inch digital cluster that sits behind the steering wheel.
This is flanked by an 8.8-inch infotainment screen that supports wired Apple Carplay and Android Auto, and gets built-in satellite navigation.
Heated seats, dual-zone climate control, and a wireless phone charger are the other features thrown in for good measure.
A sunroof is also an option on both models and comes at a $2700 premium over the purchase price.
In the Veloce, sport seats replace the standard offerings, and it also gets aluminum shift paddles,and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.
Under the bonnet, both the Ti and the Veloce make use of a four-cylinder turbo-petrol 2.0-litre engine that produces 206kW and 400Nm. This is sent exclusively to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission in both grades.
It’s worth noting that the Giulia Veloce gets a limited-slip differential in order to maximise performance.
