CARS.COM — Alfa Romeo today announced pricing on the 2017 Giulia lineup. Buyers will pay anywhere from $38,990 at the base up to a truly exotic-sports-sedan-worthy $73,595 for the Quadrifoglio model (all prices include destination).

In the middle is the Ti trim, which starts at $40,990 and comes in three additional flavors: the Ti Sport and Lusso packages ($2,250 each), and the Performance Package. Alfa's optional Q4 all-wheel-drive system adds $2,000.
Those prices put the Giulia mid-pack among competitors. It costs more than both the 2017 versions of the Acura TLX and BMW 3 Series ($32,840 and $34,445, respectively) but a little less than the 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class ($40,425).
The Giulia comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It makes 280 horsepower and 306 pounds-feet of torque, and sprints from zero-to-60 mph in 5.1 seconds on its way to a top speed of 149 mph.
It also comes with leather seating, 10-way power front seats with four-way lumbar support, bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and taillights, dual exhaust, a backup camera with dynamic grid lines and rear parking sensors, bright chrome window trim surround, remote proximity sensor with push-button start, remote start and a 7-inch display. The available Sport Exterior Package adds unique front and rear body elements, 18-inch aluminum sport wheels, gloss-black window trim surround and colored brake calipers, all for an additional $1,250 on the base price.
The Ti trim adds 18-inch wheels, genuine wood interior accents, an 8.8-inch widescreen multimedia display, SiriusXM satellite radio, and heated front seats and steering wheel. The optional Ti Sport Package further adds unique front and rear sport body elements, 19-inch five-hole dark-aluminum wheels, gloss-black window trim surround, colored brake calipers, 14-way power sport leather seats with four-way lumbar support plus power side bolsters and manual thigh extenders, a sport leather steering wheel and aluminum paddle shifters.
The Lusso Package includes luxury pieno fiore Italian leather seats with cannelloni inserts, 12-way power front seats with four-way lumbar support, a leather-wrapped dash and upper door trim with accent stitching, genuine wood trim in dark gray oak or light walnut, and a specific steering wheel. The Performance Package, meanwhile, offers adaptive suspension, a mechanical limited-slip differential and aluminum paddle shifters.
Jumping waaay up from the base price is Alfa's alpha dog: the Giulia Quadrifoglio. For nearly $35,000 extra, buyers will get the brand's most powerful production model of all time, boasting a 505-hp, twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 that reaches 60 mph in a reported 3.8 seconds.
Quadrifoglio buyers will also get model-specific exterior styling, a carbon-fiber hood, rear spoiler and side sill insert, a carbon-fiber active front splitter, the DNA Pro configurable driving system with Race Mode and adjustable performance suspension, 19-inch aluminum wheels with Brembo brakes, high-performance leather seats with 14-way power adjustment and four-way lumbar support, a leather-wrapped dash and doors with accent stitching, and carbon-fiber interior trim.
Oh, and the halo model also comes with a hand-painted Quadrifoglio four-leaf-clover badge — perhaps to remind everyone how lucky you are to be driving one. Look for the Quadrifoglio at dealerships this month, with the base and Ti models to follow in January 2017.
