“The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is an exciting addition to the Miami International Auto Show,” said Pepe Delfino, SAMA president. “SAMA judges were impressed by the storied history, beautiful craftsmanship and technological advances that make the new Giulia Quadrifoglio a serious contender in the luxury sedan market.”
As the first of a new generation of vehicles built on an all-new platform, the 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio embodies Alfa Romeo’s La meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion), delivering race-inspired performance, advanced technologies, seductive Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size sedan segment.
“We’re honored to receive this prestigious award from the Southern Automotive Media Association recognizing not only Alfa Romeo’s rich 105-year heritage, but also the excitement surrounding the all-new Giulia,” said Reid Bigland, CEO of Alfa Romeo. “We’re proud that in its Miami Auto Show debut, the Giulia took top honors for its Italian craftsmanship, performance and style – hallmarks of the Alfa Romeo Brand.”
Alfa Romeo’s passion for Italian style, craftsmanship and performance carries throughout the entire lineup. Giulia Quadrifoglio stands as the “halo” model with its 2.9-liter bi-turbo V6 engine producing a class-leading 505 hp. The Giulia and Giulia Ti models feature an all-new, all-aluminum, 2.0-liter, direct-injection turbo engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission delivering a class-leading, standard 276 horsepower.
Through innovation, Alfa Romeo created an all-new rear-wheel-drive architecture that integrates lightweight, state-of-the-art materials to enable and deliver a near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, segment-leading torsional rigidity and the most direct steering ratio on the market. Giulia and Giulia Ti offer even more all-season capabilities and performance with an available state-of-the-art Q4 all-wheel-drive system.
The all-new Giulia was designed to have a commanding presence and a menacing face to take on the world’s best roadways. The Giulia exudes stunning and functional Italian style with a finesse of Alfa Romeo heritage, athletically taut lines and sculptural details.
Crafted by Alfa Romeo artisans at the Cassino plant in Italy, the all-new 2017 Giulia Quadrifoglio is the high-performance model in the lineup, creating a premium sport sedan for driving enthusiasts that stands out in the segment.
