Alfa Romeo continues to believe in its appeal for the young UK buyers and constantly updates its two models, the Giulia and the Stelvio. Now, the updates are available for the Quadrifoglio versions. These new models are available to order now priced from £67,195 for the Giulia Quadrifoglio and £73,195 for the Stelvio Quadrifoglio.
The new Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio MY20 adds new LED rear light clusters with dark lenses and a new glossy black finish adorns the front trilobe and rear badges. Mopar has also designed an exclusive Quadrifoglio accessories line for MY20, featuring a carbon fibre front grille with “V” insert, mirror caps and rear spoiler. The Stelvio also features new 21-inch alloys wheels, seen for the first time on a Quadrifoglio.
Inside, the centre console has been adapted to offer greater tactile and visual impact, while also providing more storage space, a new leather trimmed steering wheel and gear stick are standard and customers can now choose to option red or green seat belts over the classic black version. New perforated upholstery will also be available on the Quadrifoglio models, fitted with electric leather and Alcantara sports seats as standard and available with optional carbon shell Sparco seats.
The Alfa Romeo MY20 Quadrifoglio models is available in a choice of eight colours including Competizione Red, Trofeo White and Misano Blue.
Late in 2020 a range of classic colours, which recall and reinterpret the heritage of Alfa Romeo, will also become available. The Classic range harks back to a prestigious heritage and will comprise of three new colours: 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra, and Montreal Green. The latter hue pays homage to one of the brand’s icons, the Alfa Romeo Montreal, launched 50 years ago.
With the new MY20 Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio the HMI has evolved. The 8.8-inch central display is now touchscreen and adopts an all-new layout with widgets which can be dragged and dropped to create a fully customisable homepage, in which each of the vehicle’s functions becomes an app. So just horizontal scrolling calls up the access screens for Alfa DNA, radio, media, smartphone, navigation, climate control, connected services and ADAS. The driver can choose between the updated rotary knob or the touchscreen to control the new infotainment system.
Exclusively available on the Quadrifoglio models, the new Performance Pages show the temperatures of the main mechanical components, torque delivery, turbo pressure and power used, as well as digital chronometers to measure acceleration and maximum speed, allowing the driver to view performance levels and vehicle status in real time.
The new 7-inch TFT screen in the heart of the instrument cluster is also now standard across the whole Giulia and Stelvio range. The screen layout has been redesigned to offer more information in a more rational way, and to accommodate the autonomous driving technology parameters.
Alfa Connected Services now feature as standard on the Quadrifoglio models, to deliver advanced on-board connectivity and a set of services to boost safety and comfort. The full suite of Alfa Connected Services will be expanded to include the following functions in 2020.
Performance is guaranteed by the powerful, aluminum, 2.9-litre V6 Bi-turbo engine capable of unleashing 510hp and 600Nm torque at 2,500rpm. Delivery to the wheels is the responsibility of the Alfa Active Torque Vectoring system, assisted in the Stelvio Quadrifoglio by the innovative Q4 all-wheel-drive system.
The Quadrifoglio models feature an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, calibrated to optimise fluidity and comfort so the vehicles can easily be driven on all terrains. The transmission also features a lock-up clutch to give the driver a powerful feeling of in-gear acceleration once the gear is engaged.
