With price increases of between $600 and $1,600 across the Giulia (pronounced ‘Julia’) sedan range, the only significant change for 2023 involves the arrival of a new mid-range Estrema model. This five-trim range closely matches the Stelvio SUV, right down to its standard specs and available options packages.
Choosing Your Alfa Romeo Giulia
There are five trim levels across the Giulia range, and each one comes as standard with RWD; AWD is a $2,000 option on every model bar the high-performance Quadrifoglio. Prices start at $45,545 (including destination) for an RWD Sprint, while the RWD-only Quadrifoglio will set you back $83,225. The new Estrema is the most expensive non-performance model, with prices starting at $57,085.
The standard Stelvio engine is a two-liter turbocharged gas unit, outputting 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque. This is fed to either the rear or all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Quadrifoglio models pack a far more potent 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6, emitting 505 hp and 443 lb-ft.
Fuel economy stands at an EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon city, 33 mpg highway, and 27 combined for RWD two-liter models, dropping to 23/31/26 in AWD guise. The Quadrifoglio’s figures are 17/25/20 MPG.
|Engine Type||Horsepower||Torque||Fuel Economy (City/Highway/Combined)|
|2.0 turbo||280 hp||306 lb-ft|
24/33/27 mpg (RWD)
23/31/26 mpg (AWD)
|2.9 V6||505 hp||443 lb-ft||17/25/20 mpg|
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
Cargo capacity for the five-seater Giulia sedan stands at 13.4 cu ft with the rear seats in place.
Every Giulia is comprehensively equipped, with adaptive cruise and torque control allied to lane departure warnings, automatic wipers, and LED headlights. Blind spot and cross-path detection are standard across the range, as are hill start assist and parking sensors at both ends of the car. Seven airbags populate the cabin and front Brembo brakes are standard, while Quadrifoglio models get Brembo brakes across all four wheels. However, you’ll need to spend almost $1,600 on a package to receive features like traffic sign recognition, active blind-spot assistance, or lane-keep assist on any Guilia, and this pack isn’t available on Sprint models.
An 8.8-inch touchscreen is the centerpiece of Giulia’s dash, powering navigation and an eight-speaker audio system, while wireless charging is standard on every model. By the time you reach Estrema trim, the stereo has been upgraded to a 14-speaker premium system from Harman Kardon, but sockets and connectivity remain unchanged.
2023 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint – MSRP from $45,545
The cheapest Giulia is equipped with power folding and auto-dimming heated outside mirrors, plus full dusk-sensing LED lighting with automatic bi-xenon high beams. Remote keyless entry permits access to a cabin where a heated steering wheel and four heated seats (power adjustable in the front with driver memory) join a dual-zone climate. The sports leather steering wheel and perforated leather shift knob are tactile touches, and it’s also worth noting the presence of aluminum pedals and a seven-inch color instrument display.
There are no packages on this trim.
2023 Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti – MSRP from $48,245
Bigger wheels and gloss black moldings distinguish Ti models externally. Inside, changes are limited to a dual-pane sunroof and dark oak cabin trim.
Spend $1,595, and your Giulia Ti will be delivered with the Active Assist Plus pack’s seven driver aids, from active blind-spot assist and lane keeping to traffic sign recognition and a driver attention alert. It’s also possible to spend $1,975 on upgrading the stereo to a Harman Kardon unit and getting leather across the dash and upper doors.
2023 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce – MSRP from $53,685
Bigger 19-inch wheels are a highlight of mid-range Veloce models, alongside a variety of model-specific external detailing. There’s an eight-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat plus manual thigh support adjustment, while a limited slip diff is a welcome addition.
Packages are the same as on Ti.
2023 Alfa Romeo Giulia Estrema – MSRP from $57,085
Active suspension provides the main mechanical uplift on Estrema models, but the bigger changes are found in the cabin, where sports leather seats and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon stereo are among the standout upgrades.
The Active Assist Plus package is the only option on Estrema models, still priced at $1,595.
2023 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio – MSRP from $83,225
Look closely at a Quadrifoglio Guilia, and you might notice the black and red calipers underpinning Brembo brakes on all four wheels, or the chrome-tipped quad exhaust. You wouldn’t notice the torque vectoring rear differential, but you’d certainly spot the carbon fiber hood and Quadrifoglio badging, the 200mph speedometer, and the extended leather across the dash and upper doors.
Packs remain as on Estrema.
Compare Giulia Trims Side-By-Side
Sprint trim represents such good value that other Giulia models struggle to distinguish themselves, though buying a Ti enables you to invest in additional driver safety aids. It’s a shame these aren’t standard, but the Active Assist Plus package still represents a worthwhile upgrade.
