The Alfa Romeo Giulia (Type 952) is a compact executive car produced by the Italian automobile manufacturer Alfa Romeo. It was unveiled in June 2015, with market launch scheduled for February 2016, and it is the first saloon offered by Alfa Romeo after the production of the 159 ended in 2011. The Giulia is also the first mass-market Alfa Romeo vehicle in over two decades to use a longitudinal rear-wheel drive platform, since the 75 which was discontinued in 1992. The Giulia was second in 2017 European Car of the Year voting and was named Motor Trend Car of the Year for 2018. In 2018, Giulia was awarded the Compasso d'Oro industrial design award.
The top-of-the-line Giulia Quadrifoglio (Italian for "four-leaf clover") was the first model in the new Giulia range. It was unveiled at Italy in June 2015. It made its official international debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Quadrifoglio's main competitors are cars such as the Mercedes-AMG C63, BMW M3 and the Cadillac ATS-V.
The engine was developed exclusively for the Quadrifoglio by Ferrari technicians and is related to Ferrari's own twin-turbocharged F154 CB V8 engine. The engine has a maximum power output of 510 PS at 6,500 rpm, and 600 N⋅m of torque between 2,500 and 5,000 rpm.
Courtesy of cylinder deactivation (with the ability to switch off three of the six cylinders), this model achieves a fuel consumption of 8.5 litres per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of 198 g/km, in the combined cycle.
The Quadrifoglio weighs 1,524 kg (3,360 lb) (DIN) and has a power-to-weight ratio of 3 kg/PS. This is achieved courtesy of the Quadrifoglio sharing the other models' composite and light alloy construction, as well as featuring a roof and bonnet made of carbon fibre.
Six-speed manual transmission was available as an option in European markets and discontinued in 2017.
Driving modes include "Dynamic", "Natural" and "Advanced Efficiency" modes (the last one uses cylinder deactivation for increased fuel economy), and "Race" (for high performance — with louder exhaust note and all electronic stability control systems turned off).
