A sleeker, more elegant look is coming to the gorgeous Italian luxury cars.
Just last month, Alfa Romeo updated the Stelvio and Giulia for 2023, adding more performance and luxury for the new model year, but these models are starting to look a little dated alongside the Tonale SUV revealed in February. Alfa Romeo is well aware that its new crossover looks much more modern than its other offerings, and so both the Stelvio SUV and the Giulia sedan have been updated for 2024, giving them sleeker styling that better fits with the evolving design language of the company. We already knew this would happen back in March, and now it's official. But styling is not all that has been improved for these luxurious Italian automobiles.
The front end has been revised on both vehicles with a "contemporary reinterpretation" of the Trilobo grille and new full LED adaptive matrix headlights that feature 3+3 lighting signatures. These lighting elements act as running lights and dynamic turn signals. At the rear, the LED taillights have seen their layouts revised slightly, too, for a sportier look. The Giulia gets new fixtures in glass with a transparent finish, while the Stelvio gets smoked glass with a glossy black finish.
Inside, a "telescopic" design characterizes the new digital 12.3-inch TFT driver display, with this cluster able to be configured in three layouts: Evolved, Relax, and Heritage. Relax is comfort-focused with simple graphics, while Heritage is inspired by classic Alfas from the Sixties and Seventies, featuring inverted numbers at the end of the speedometer.
Alfa Romeo has also joined the NFT craze. Here, "the NFT generates a certificate where data on the vehicle's life gets recorded," which is intended to help guarantee the history of the vehicle and enhance its residual value.
Another highlight is that Alfa is introducing a Competizione special series, which is based on the Veloce trim and is available with any engine (for markets where the 2.0-liter turbocharged, 280-horsepower engine is not the only offering). The launch edition is finished in exclusive Moon Light gray matte paint with red brake calipers hiding behind 21-inch alloy wheels, while the cabin gets a Harman Kardon audio system, a leather-upholstered dashboard, and seats with red stitching. Privacy glass and Competizione badges on the sides of the vehicle and on the front head restraints complete the updates. An NFT is once again included here to confirm the cars' original configuration.
If that's not up your alley, the regular lineup is now available in four trims, as on the Tonale: Super, Ti, Sprint, and Veloce. The Super entry-level trim can be upgraded with a Sprint pack with various unnamed sporty optional add-ons, while the Ti trim, "which highlights the elegance and distinctive character of the two vehicles," can be had with the Veloce pack for more performance and sportiness. Again, Alfa has not revealed exactly what upgrades this pack includes.
As for pricing, Stellantis has not revealed what any of these variants will cost, but we do know that the new Giulia and Stelvio will be available from February 2023.
