The Giulia lineup is simple to understand. There are three trim levels: Giulia, Giulia Ti and Giulia Quadrifoglio and three major option packages: Sport appearance for the both the Giulia and Giulia Ti and an additional Lusso and performance package available for the Giulia Ti.
Looking at Giulia and Giulia Ti Pricing
All models have a high level of standard equipment and option packages that allow you to tailor the car to your personal style. The cars are so well equipped there are a limited number of individual options, and those are focused on high demand items.
The Giulia offers more standard equipment than its competitors. For example, comparing the $37,995 Giulia to the $38,750 BMW 330i, the Giulia has standard: HID headlights ( a $800 option on the BMW), Passive entry (part of a $2,450 package on the BMW), Remote Start (not available on the BMW), Leather seating (a $1,450 option on the BMW) and a Back-up Camera and Rear sensors (part of a $995 BMW package).
The Giulia also has a 280 hp / 306 lbs-ft of torque engine, while the BMW engine makes due with just 248 hp / 358 lbs-ft of torque.
The Giulia Ti also has a similar story. Comparing the $39,995 Giulia Ti to the $39,500 Mercedes C300, you may think the C300 has a $400 price advantage. However, that is until you factor the Giulia Ti comes standard with: 18-inch wheels (a $500 option on the C300), Passive Entry (part of a $1,300 package on the C300), Remote Start (not available on the C300), Leather Seating (a $2,050 option on the C300 ), Heated Seats (a $580 option on the C300), and a Heated Steering Wheel (a $250 option on the C300 ).
Alfa Romeo dealers will be getting the Giulia Quadrifoglio towards the end of this month, with deliveries of the other Giulia models arriving in January. Currently, there are 60 Giulia Quadrifoglios at the port of Baltimore and a shipment of 600 Giulia and Giulia Ti models coming in the next few weeks. Alfa Romeo currently has 156 dealers located across the country.
Now is the time to contact your Alfa Romeo dealer for additional information. The Alfa Romeo USA website has logged 65,000 handraisers for the Giulia so you may have to get in line!
