Alfa’s 2020 model year Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio tug at the heartstrings with their new heritage paint shade options and much more carbon fibre trim, while retaining their epic road car credentials.
Alfa Romeo is coming out fighting into a world that is itself fighting the coronavirus pandemic. With its face-lifted Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio high-performance models. And they continue to retain their edge as sensational road cars with that ‘Race’ Drive Mode, which transforms these already epic cars into some of the most engaging driver’s cars available today, courtesy of the 510bhp 2.9-litre Bi-turbo V6 that sends power to all four wheels via Alfa’s Active Torque Vectoring system. And while the new 2020 models continue to retain the Alfa Chassis Domain Control unit, which adapts the car in realtime, along with the Guila’s active aero splitter, both cars in the new model year gain a new optional dual-mode Akrapovic titanium exhaust system with carbon fibre tailpipes for an even more raucous exhaust note.
In order to up the technology quotient, both cars now get a Bosch level 2 autonomous driving system, which gives these cars features such as lane-keeping assist, active blind-spot assistance, active cruise control, traffic sign recognition and speed control, traffic jam assist, highway assist, and driver attention assist. All of these are packaged in the new Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio.
The 2020 Alfa Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio are visually distinguishable from the outside by their new dark lens LED taillights and glossy black finish on the front trilobe and rear badges. Meanwhile, Mopar is offering a host of new accessories for the cars, which includes a carbon fibre front grille, mirror caps, and a rear spoiler. The Stelvio also gains a set of new 21-inch alloy rims. Both cars get new colour options to choose from Alfa’s range of Solid and Classic range of paint shades. The Classic range comprises of three new colours – 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra, and Montreal Green.
When it comes to the interior, the new cars feature a new 8.8-inch infotainment system with connected car tech and a lot of performance display menus, which include temperatures of the main mechanical components, torque delivery, turbo pressure and power used. The system also has digital chronometers to measure acceleration and maximum speed achieved. The centre console meanwhile has been redesigned to offer more space and greater visual appeal, while the steering wheel and gear lever get new leather trim. And both cars now get the option of red and green seatbelts over the standard black version.
