In response to the huge interest shown by the press and public alike to the new Giulia sedan, Alfa Romeo is now adding a new version to the car’s lineup which slots between the high-end QV and the base models, offering a good compromise between the two. It is called Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce and it comes with high-performance petrol and diesel engines.
The petrol-powered Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce is the one we are fascinated by, as it comes with a 280 HP 2.0-litre Turbo petrol engine, an 8-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive. More eco-minded Giulia lovers who still want a bit of excitement in their lives can go for the diesel variant which boasts a torquey 210 HP 2.2-litre Diesel engine, made entirely out of aluminum and featuring MultiJet II technology and Injection Rate Shaping (IRS).
Looks-wise, Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce in both its variants is a toned-down version of the QV model, sporting specific bumpers, gloss black trims, double exhaust pipe and optional 5-hole 19″ alloy wheel rims. The same goes for the interior where you’ll find black leather Sport seats, a sports steering wheel with an original grip, aluminium inserts on the dashboard, central tunnel and door panels. The list of equipment include Xenon headlights, dual-zone climate control, the Alfa DNA system and 6.5″ Connect infotainment system and safety gear such as Forward Collision Warning (FCW) with Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB) and pedestrian recognition, the Integrated Brake System (IBS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and cruise control with speed limiter.
The Paris-bound Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce also introduces two new colors including Blue Misano for the petrol and Silverstone grey on the diesel model. Alfa’s Paris stand will also include displays of the Giulietta and Mito models as well as the 4C and 4C Spider.
