The Alfa Romeo Giulia QV Will Cost $10,000 More Than The BMW M3

Pricing / Comments

And it's more expensive than the AMG C63 S.

Alfa Romeo just released pricing for its long-awaited sedan, the Giulia. We knew almost everything about the Italian four-door-we'll be driving the Quadrifoglio (QV) in a few weeks and will shortly be able to tell you how it performs-save for what it would cost. Well, now we know. The cheapest Giulia will check in at $38,990 (all prices here include destination charges). The most expensive model, the QV, will sell for $73,595. In between those two trims is the Giulia Ti which has a price tag of $40,990.

Both the base Giulia and the Ti are powered by the same 2.0-liter direct-injection turbo-four making 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque. The only transmission on offer for the entire Giulia lineup in the US is an eight-speed automatic. The QV is powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 spitting out 505 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is available on both the base model and the Ti for an extra $2,000. The QV doesn't offer AWD because rear-wheel drive is super fun and all that. If you choose the base Giulia you get a car with some pretty nice standard features, including leather seats, 10-way power front seats with four-way lumbar support, a 7-inch color TFT display and remote start.

Should you want to make the base model look cooler there's the Sport Exterior Package for $1,250 that Alfa says adds "unique front and rear fascias, 18-inch aluminum sport wheels, gloss black window trim surround and colored brake calipers." The base Giulia compares pretty well to its comparably priced German competitors. A base BMW 3 Series is cheaper by about $4,000 but down 100 horsepower. The cheapest Mercedes C-Class costs a grand more and its engine is down on power when compared to the Giulia's 2.0-liter turbo-four. As for the Audi A4, well all we'll say is have fun with your front-wheel drive at this price point. As for the Giulia Ti, well we hadn't heard much about it until Alfa Romeo announced its pricing.

The middle child is more or less a luxed-up version of the base model. Standard features include 18-inch wheels, an 8.8-inch touch infotainment screen, heated steering wheel and heated front seats. There are two optional packages, Ti Sport and Ti Lusso, both of which cost $2,250. The sport package includes new front and rear fascias, 19-inch dark five-hole aluminum wheels, aluminum column-mounted paddle shifters, colored brake calipers, 14-way power adjustable sport leather seats and more. The Sport package also includes a mechanical limited-slip and adaptive performance suspension. The Lusso package focuses not on performance but luxury, with the dash wrapped in leather, real wood trim, a "luxury" steering wheel and more.

We won't go into great detail about the QV because we've been talking about it for what feels like a year now. That being said we need to talk about its price. At $73,995 it's more expensive than an M3 (by almost $10,000) and the AMG C63 S (by a hair). Again, the Alfa is more powerful than both models but the M3 is a known commodity for almost $10k cheaper and the Mercedes packs a twin-turbo V8, also for cheaper. Alfa is gambling a bit with the pricing of its range-topping QV. We'll let you know if that's a smart bet in a few weeks after we learn what the Giulia QV is all about.
