The Giulia respect first adorned an Alfa back in the ’60s, but a long epoch of gestation followed and it wasn’t until 2015 that the celebrity was officially relaunched. Pushing the manufacturer’s rear-wheel drive dais forward, it marked something of a new beginning for the brand.

Whilst we’re extend over a bit of history, it’s fair to say Alfa Romeo hasn’t always had the most adroitly reputation for manufacturing reliable, well-built cars. However, they clothed always been fabulous to gaze at, which is why we’re going to start by looking at the illusion…

Those Looks

The rear end of the car is a little plain compared to the front, but still has a reliable elegance to it which rivals in this class struggle to compact.


The interior matches the good looks of the outside – with swaddles of leather, in a mixture of tan and black, adorning the various surfaces and by looking fantastic. A heated steering wheel, heated & electronically patch up front seats and Silverwood/Walnut trim pieces circular off the included Lusso pack, a £2750 option included on the car tested.
