The 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia gains a number of standard safety features, including adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and parking sensors. Navigation, wireless charging, and heated seats are newly standard as well. Last year's Ti Sport trim is now called Veloce. The Giulia luxury sedan debuted in 2017 and has received regular equipment updates since then.

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The Giulia is a midsize sedan with ample seating for five. The trunk measures 13 cubic feet, which is on the small end of this class.
This year brings a full complement of standard driver assistance features. Every Giulia comes with adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and front and rear parking sensors.
Available on the Ti and above, the $1,000 Active Assist Plus Package tacks on lane-keeping assist and a semi-autonomous highway driving system.
The standard infotainment system includes an 8.8-inch touchscreen, navigation, 10 speakers, wireless device charging, satellite and HD radio, two USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The $1,800 Premium Interior and Sound Package for the Ti and Veloce contains a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, which is standard on the Quadrifoglio.
The Sprint comes loaded with luxury and performance features. These include black leather upholstery, heated six-way power front seats with driver memory, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, heated windshield washers, remote start, aluminum sport pedals and paddle shifters, Brembo brakes, adaptive xenon headlights, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
A dual-pane sunroof costs $1,350, and a red leather interior with eight-way front sport seats is available for $1,600.
The luxury-flavored Giulia, the Ti features wood interior trim, chrome exterior accents, and 18-inch turbine-style wheels. The sunroof is standard. Saddle brown (instead of black) seats are available for $600.
Along with the Harman Kardon system, the Premium Interior and Sound Package add leather trim to the dashboard and door panels. The Ti is the only model without paddle shifters.
The Veloce goes in a sporty direction with a limited-slip differential, 14-way sport front seats (in red for $600 extra), a rear spoiler, red brake calipers, black body trim, and 19-inch sport wheels.
Along with an enormous boost in power, the Quadrifoglio gets an adaptive sport suspension, performance brakes, a torque-vectoring differential, a race driving mode, and carbon fiber trim and body components. A carbon-fiber roof is available for $2,000, and front racing seats cost $3,500.
In terms of actual performance, there's little difference between 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint, Ti, and Veloce. The Ti offers a taste of bling, while the Veloce has a slight edge in handling. In contrast, the Quadrifoglio is so wickedly fast, it dwells on a totally different plane.
