The Giulia’s range in the United Kingdom is getting expanded further with the launch of the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce, unveiled at the Paris Motor Show last year. Known as the Ti model in America, the Veloce sits snuggly between the base model and the range-topping QV, offering a nice blend of performance and efficiency wrapped in a hugely desirable package.
Powering the Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce is a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine with 280hp and a maximum torque of 400Nm which enables the sports sedan to accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 5.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 149mph. It is clever too, what with a “2-in-1” turbocharger system and direct injection, and MultiAir electro-hydraulic valve activation system. That’s how it manages to return 46.3mpg on the combined cycle and emit just 141g/km CO2.
Prices for the Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce starts from £37,935 OTR for which you get a good amount of standard kit including front & rear parking sensors, headlamp washers and upgraded braking system, dual-zone climate control, Alfa DNA driving mode selector and 8.8-inch Alfa Connect infotainment system, plus safety features such as Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian recognition, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Integrated Braking System (IBS) and cruise control with speed limiter.
