Italians are known for their sensuality and passion, and it shows in their food, architecture, and fashion. Of course, these characteristics can be reflected in their cars, which is why they are among the most coveted in the world. Take the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia for example. It truly seems like a dream come to life, straight out of the sleepy and romantic towns along the Italian Riviera.
The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia made its world debut back in 2015 at the Frankfurt Motor show. Since then, people have been keeping a keen eye on it, expectant and excited all at the same time. The manufacturers certainly set the bar high and whetted car enthusiasts’ appetite just enough to keep them engaged and curious for the next two years. When it finally came out ready for test driving, those eagerly awaiting were not disappointed. It’s clear that there’s a new belle of the ball in town, and it’s got some mean wheels to it.
First of all, it comes with a mouthwatering 505-hp 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, coupled with an eight-speed automatic transmission. You can customize your driving experience thanks to the four selectable drive modes, from which you can also adjust various mechanisms, such as throttle response and suspension damping. Don’t worry if you’re in for the race mode. The Giulia simply disables the stability control, upon which you can have a go and drift to your heart’s desires.
Hot Looks and Appeal
Sports cars must look good, and in that aspect, Alfa Romeo certainly did not cut corners. The front bumper alone already grabs your attention, and sleek lines lead your eyes to the rest of its long and elegant body. The hood is made of painted carbon-fiber, the same material as the roof. Even the interiors are being raved about by those fortunate enough to have already gotten their hands on it, from the generously spaced seats, headroom, legroom, and other plush appointments.
In fact, perhaps the only true criticism that’s ever come out on the Giulia is that the rear seat can’t be folded down to expand trunk space, or at least provide a pass-through. It hardly dampens the mood for this party, though.
Needless to say, car aficionados are all abuzz with excitement over the impressive performance and great looks of the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia.
