Will The Alfa Romeo Giulia Still Look As Sexy With All-Wheel Drive?

Engine

You really thought it'd be rear-wheel drive only?

The Alfa Romeo Giulia was easily one of the prettiest cars we came across at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. Yeah, we’d seen a ton of the speedy four-door before, but seeing it on the show floor in person was something else entirely. We recently reported on leaked engine details for the Giulia, and now Alfa has released some actual details regarding an alternative power plant as well as a price point. The top-level Giulia, the Quadrifoglio, packs a twin-turbo V6 that sends 505 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels.

Yeah, we already knew those specs but they’re worth mentioning one more time as the Quadrifoglio will actually be the first Giulia out the gate. It’ll be followed by the much less powerful 2.0-liter turbo-four model good for 276 horsepower. While purists were pumped to hear that the Giulia was going to be rear-wheel drive, Alfa Romeo also said it will offer an all-wheel drive option with torque vectoring as well. The Giulia Quadrifoglio is priced at $70,000 and will hit dealer lots around the middle of 2016. Alfa Romeo has been absent from the US market for some time so we’ll hold off on saying this four-door needs to be had and hooned. What we will say is that it looks damn good and we can’t wait to see how it does out on the track.
