Head joins the heart today as Alfa Romeo announces the UK pricing and specification for the highly-anticipated Alll-New Alfa Romeo Giulia range, with prices starting from £29,180 OTR.
Featuring all new rear-wheel drive architecture, perfect weight distribution, best in class power-to-weight ratios, and innovative engine and driver technologies, the All-New Giulia is every inch a true Alfa Romeo.
