The editors of Car and Driver
named the Alfa Romeo Giulia
– including the record-breaking Giulia Quadrifoglio – to its annual Editors’ Choice list for 2018, recognizing the best cars on the market.
Car and Driver
created their Editors’ Choice awards to honor the many excellent vehicles — beyond those in the 10Best halo — that they would recommend to family and friends.
“For Editors’ Choice, we look for exactly the same qualities that inform our 10Best selections: a vehicle’s inherent value, how well it fulfills its intended mission relative to its segment competitors and how engaging it is from behind the wheel,” said Car and Driver
. “We comb through every segment and consider all the vehicles we’ve driven, tested and evaluated — more than 700 last year alone.”
Alfa Romeo Giulia models feature an, all-aluminum, 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers a class-leading, standard 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque, allowing it to launch from 0-60 mph in a best-in-class 5.1 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 149 mph.
As the lineup’s “halo” model, the Giulia Quadrifoglio highlights Alfa Romeo’s performance and motorsport expertise with all-aluminum 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine featuring best-in-class 505 horsepower, 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 3.8 seconds and a record-setting 7:32 lap time around the legendary Nürburgring – the fastest time ever achieved by a four-door production sedan.
All Giulia models offer:
- Near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution thanks to Giulia’s all-new rear-wheel-drive Giorgio architecture and class-exclusive standard carbon fiber driveshaft
- An extensive list of standard features, including leather seating, bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, and back-up camera with park sensors
- Class-leading horsepower
- Unique Italian style and craftsmanship to the premium mid-size sedan segment
- A 55-year heritage of Giulia’s lightweight, performance sedan tradition and more than 100 years of brand history, carving its legend on road courses around the globe
