The Giulia isn't a large volume production car in America, which could explain the fact that it hasn't been tested by the NHTSA. The IIHS, however, has put the 2019 Giulia through its paces and the results were impressive. The Giulia didn't manage to scoop a Top Safety Pick award, but it managed to score Good in all crashworthiness categories and Superior for the optional crash prevention systems. The only disappointment was its headlights, which was to be expected, considering the fact that some models come with xenon lights, instead of LEDs.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
If it weren't for its poor headlight performance, the Giulia would surely be one of the safer cars in its class, despite its relatively short safety features list. Standard safety features on the 2019 Giulia include stability control, hill start assist, rain-sensing window wipers, advanced braking assist, torque control, and an eight-airbag system including front knee airbags. Optional packages add blind-spot and rear cross-traffic assistance as well as more advanced systems such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assistance, lane change warning, forward collision avoidance, and more. The Giulia can't match the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 when it comes to standard safety, with both offering more as standard and picking up Top Safety Pick + and Top Safety Pick awards respectively.

Despite their notoriety for breaking down and leaking oil all over your newly paved driveway, modern Alfa Romeos manage to stay on the road a bit longer than their predecessors. The Giulia has been recalled twice as a 2019 model. Certain Giulias were recalled due to the adaptive cruise control failing to deactivate, while in the second recall, the fuel gauge may read higher than the actual level. The folks over at J.D. Power gave the Giulia a score of 75 on their reliability rating scale, not bad for a sporty Italian. Alfa Romeo covers the 2019 Giulia with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, which includes a 12-year/unlimited-mile corrosion warranty, as well as a four-year drivetrain and roadside assistance warranty, matching that of the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4.
