These popular and stylish models from Alfa’s acclaimed range have been updated with a wide range of design, technology, and safety upgrades.
Outside, the new Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio adds new LED rear light clusters with dark lenses and a new glossy black finish adorns the front trilobe and rear badges. Mopar has also designed an exclusive Quadrifoglio accessories line, featuring a carbon fibre front grille with ‘V’ insert, mirror caps and rear spoiler. The Stelvio also features new 21-inch alloys wheels, seen for the first time on a Quadrifoglio.
In the Alfa Romeo laboratories, new effects, new pigments and new application techniques are constantly being explored to accentuate the sculptural effect of the Giulia and Stelvio’s lines. The Quadrifoglio model is available in a choice of eight colours including Competizione Red, Trofeo White and Misano Blue, and, later this year, you’ll be able to also choose from a new range of classic colours, which recall and reinterpret the heritage of the brand – 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra, and Montreal Green. The latter hue pays homage to one of the brand’s icons, the Alfa Romeo Montreal, launched 50 years ago.
Inside, the centre console has been adapted to offer greater tactile and visual impact, while also providing more storage space, a new leather trimmed steering wheel and gear stick are standard and customers can now choose to option red or green seat belts over the classic black version. New perforated upholstery will also be available on the Quadrifoglio models, fitted with electric leather and Alcantara sports seats as standard and available with optional carbon shell Sparco seats.
The 8.8-inch central display is now touchscreen and adopts an all-new layout with widgets which can be dragged and dropped to create a fully customisable homepage, in which each of the vehicle’s functions becomes an app.
Exclusively available on the Quadrifoglio models, the new Performance Pages show the temperatures of the main mechanical components, torque delivery, turbo pressure and power used, as well as digital chronometers to measure acceleration and maximum speed, allowing the driver to view performance levels and vehicle status in real time.
Alfa Connected Services now feature as standard on the Quadrifoglio models, to deliver advanced on-board connectivity and a set of services to boost safety and comfort. The full suite of Alfa Connected Services is be expanded to include My Assistant which enables the occupant to send a request for assistance to a call centre, with the vehicle’s position and identification code, by pressing the SOS button or via the mobile app; My Remote, My Navigation, My Car, which enables owners to monitor their car’s health and parameters. My Wi-Fi allows an Internet connection to be shared between up to eight on-board devices and My Theft Assistance alerts the owner of any attempt to steal the car.
A new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), developed in conjunction with Bosch to offer level 2 autonomous driving has been introduced. It leaves the pleasure of sitting behind the wheel intact, as it only intervenes to ensure total safety and to increase driver comfort in heavy traffic or on longer trips.
The main enabling technologies in the new Quadrifoglio are: Lane Keep Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Control, Traffic Jam Assist and Highway Assist and Driver Attention Assist.
Their class-leading performance is guaranteed by the powerful, aluminum, 2.9-litre V6 Bi-turbo engine capable of unleashing 510hp and 600Nm torque at 2,500rpm. Delivery to the wheels is the responsibility of the Alfa Active Torque Vectoring system, assisted in the Stelvio Quadrifoglio by the innovative Q4 all-wheel-drive system.
The Quadrifoglio models feature an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, calibrated to optimise fluidity and comfort so the vehicles can easily be driven on all terrains. The transmission also features a lock-up clutch to give the driver a powerful feeling of in-gear acceleration once the gear is engaged.
Depending on the mode chosen with the AlfaTM DNA Pro, the automatic transmission optimises the ride and handling in all contexts of use. The Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models are also incredibly efficient in terms of emission and fuel consumption, thanks to the electronically controlled cylinder deactivation system and the ‘sailing’ function, available in Advanced Efficiency driving mode. In RACE mode, the cars express their full potential with lightning-fast gear changes in only 150 milliseconds.
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio can accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds, going on to a top speed of 176mph, while the Giulia Quadrifoglio reaches 62mph in just 3.9 seconds and goes on to 190mph.
The soundtrack accompanying the Quadrifoglio driving experience is provided by a dual mode quad exhaust system. Customers can opt to fit the MY20 Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio with a new Akrapovič exhaust, another dual mode system, in titanium with carbon fibre tailpipes, featuring an even more sophisticated sound.
Each of the Quadrifoglio models are fitted with a range of systems designed to enhance the pleasure of driving, offering motorists the most authentic, engaging experience behind the wheel. These include Alfa Chassis Domain Control (CDC) that acts as the ‘brain’ of the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio and coordinates all the car’s electronic systems to deliver the best performance and the utmost driving pleasure at all times. Alfa Active Torque Vectoring (ATV) optimises the Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s drive distribution and accentuates its sporting character. Alfa Active Aero Splitter features exclusively on the Giulia Quadrifoglio, which actively manages downforce for higher performance and improved grip at high speed and Alfa DNA Pro with Race mode modifies the car’s dynamic response according to which mode the driver selects: Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficiency and Race.
These new models are available to order now priced from £67,195 OTR for the Giulia Quadrifoglio and £73,195 OTR for the Stelvio Quadrifoglio.
