2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia brings new style, tech

Alfa Romeo’s Giulia enters the 2024 model year with a raft of changes, including the addition of limited-edition Competizione and Quadrifoglio 100th Anniversario models.

The update is the second for the Giulia, which arrived for 2017 and was given its first update for 2020. The latest update should help keep the handsome sedan looking and feeling fresh until the arrival of an electric successor in the years ahead. Many of the changes also feature on the Stelvio for 2024.

The biggest change is the exterior styling, which adopts new headlights, a revised front fascia, and smoked lens for the taillights. The headlights now feature matrix LED technology while also sporting three elements for the daytime running lights, a design shared with the new 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale compact crossover.

Another key change is in the cabin, where the driver is greeted by a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster (previously 7.0 inches). The infotainment system’s touchscreen remains unchanged, but the system adds a new Alfa Connect Services feature. This provides new functionalities, such as over-the-air updates and remote control of certain vehicle functions via a smartphone or similar device.

Alfa Romeo has also streamlined features into the three regular grades Sprint, Veloce, and the new limited-edition Competizione option. The Competizione comes equipped with many of the Giulia’s available features as standard, including 21-inch alloys, red brake calipers, a Harman/Kardon audio system, accent stitching, and a leather-lined dash. It also comes with the option of the exclusive matte paint finish Moon Light.

At the top of the range remains the Quadrifoglio grade which features a limited-edition 100th Anniversario model celebrating the Quadrifoglio performance branding’s centennial.

No change has been made to the powertrains. The 2024 Giulia is offered with either a 280-hp 2.0-liter turbo-4 or 505-hp twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6. The latter is reserved for the fiery Quadrifoglio. An 8-speed automatic is standard across the range. Rear-wheel drive is also standard across the range, though the Sprint, Veloce, and Competizione grades can be ordered with all-wheel drive.

Sales start later this year. Full pricing hasn’t been announced but the Competizione is confirmed by Alfa Romeo to start at $53,115, including a $1,595 destination charge.
