The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia offers a fairly generous set of standard features, but its infotainment system is poorly designed. We rate it a 5, adding a point for the feature set and subtracting a point for that infotainment system. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia base model comes standard with leather upholstery, 10-way power front seats with 4-way lumbar adjustment, bi-xenon headlamps, LED daytime running lights, LED taillights, a rearview camera, rear park assist, keyless ignition, remote starting, and a 7.0-inch color TFT instrument cluster display. An available Sport Exterior package adds unique front and rear fascias, gloss black window trim surrounds, colored brake calipers, and 18-inch aluminum sport wheels.
Opting for the Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti model brings wood interior accents, an 8.8-inch center screen, satellite radio, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and 18-inch wheels.
The Ti is available with Sport and Lusso packages. The Lusso package includes Pieno Fiore Italian leather upholstery, 12-way power front seats with 4-way lumbar adjustment, leather-wrapped dash and upper door trim with accent stitching, wood trim in dark grey oak or light walnut, and a "luxury" steering wheel. The Sport package adds a sport leather-wrapped steering wheel; aluminum paddle shifters; 14-way front power sport leather seats with 4-way lumbar adjustment, power side bolsters, and manual thigh extenders; aggressive front and rear fascias; gloss black window trim surrounds; colored brake calipers; and 19-inch dark five-hole aluminum wheels. Those who want something even sportier should opt for the Ti Performance package, which adds a mechanical limited-slip differential, an adaptive performance suspension, and aluminum paddle shifters.
All-wheel drive is offered for the base and Ti models for an additional $2,000.
