A 4-door Ferrari.....for regular folks
Mr. Auto Expert, 8/1/2017
I have owned 67 cars since 1974. Many of them were high performance or luxury vehicles. From all the world's major companies. (BMW x4, Audi x2, Mercedes x2, Lincoln x2, Cadillac x3, Porsche x3, Saab x2 to name only a few) In that collection which I have bought and sold, I owned 3 Alfa Romeo's pre-1995. This new Alfa Romeo Giulia sports sedan is BY FAR, the best car I've ever owned, period. While it is way too soon to write about reliability issues, which seem to consistently plague Italian made vehicles, I am basing my 44 yrs of car driving experience and knowledge on the car's basics. Looks, performance, handling, and practicality. I give this car the highest marks possible in each of those important categories. If you are considering leasing or buying a new 3-Series BMW, C-Class Mercedes, or Audi A4 or Lexus, please drive this car first, so you will be impressed by the overall stupendous drivability and performance of this fantastic Italian masterpiece! I can not recommend this car highly enough. But I will reserve my long term commentary regarding quality and reliability, for another day.
This car is a head turner

I have owned a 2017 Guilia TI for 3 months. There was a glitch in the voice recognition portion of the phone blue tooth funtion that was fixed after several attempts and is now functioning flawlessly. I have owned MB, BMW and Audi's and this car accelerates, stops and handles better than any vehicle I have ever owned. People are always stopping me to admire the car and ask about it. It looks as good as it drives.
Love it
ECCalfa, 3/7/2017
Love the design. It's eye catching. The handling is incredible. The 4 cylinder sounds like a V6 and has a good growl. It's a blast to drive. It has a lot of cool features like auto wipers, collision warning, and headlights that light up the corners when you start a turn. The Harmon Kardon speakers sound great. The tech package is very simple, but it works really well and takes no time to master. My guess is while it's more basic it's probably going to be better than most systems that they try to force too many features in and they are glitchy. Slam on the breaks and the car stays flat, zero noise drive. The quality is top notch, not single defect or rattle. Only had it for a few weeks - really hoping the reliability is there too. The front sport seats are a tad hard and seem to be built for smaller people. The shifter is taking some time to get used to. That's about all I can find on the downside.
Not the Alfa of old

First take the car for a test drive, this is not a BMW, Mercedes or Audi, it was never meant to be. This is Italian at its best. Some reviews out there mention comparisons to the infotainment and lack of rear leg room however for myself it has been totally the fun and excitement to drive. I will admit the rear leg room can be limited however, it is ample enough for short trips with people in the back seat. This car is so much fun to drive, the pick up is great, the sound is intimidating, even for the 4 cyl. having owned since the middle of the February I was one of the only ones in the area that had one. this meant only 6 in the whole area. It has a very sexy design and gives the driver that feeling of being a part of a specialized crowd. I love it, although might not be for everyone, but it is definitely meant more many.

More about the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia

A luxury sport sedan with an iconic name and heritage, the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is perfect for buyers who want Italian tradition and cachet at a sub-Ferrari price. Although the top-trim Giulia Quadrifoglio isn't exactly a basement bargain, it's priced competitively with other European sport sedans. It's a worthy alternative for those seeking something different from the standard choices.

All-new for 2017, the Giulia expands Alfa Romeo's U.S. presence after a long absence, a milestone marked by the introduction of the small, mid-engine Alfa Romeo 4C sports car. But Alfa's long history of building sport sedans, as well as performance roadsters and racers, makes the Giulia's revival a significant step toward a full-line resurgence.

The entry-level Giulia comes with a peppy turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 280 horsepower. Stepping up to the Quadrifoglio delivers more performance from a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 (505 hp, 443 pound-feet of torque) and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Giulia Quadrifoglio can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 191 mph, according to Alfa Romeo.

The 2017 Giulia returns an EPA-estimated 20 mpg combined (17 city/24 highway).

With a claimed 50/50 weight balance, active sport suspension and steering tuned for excellent feedback, the Quadrifoglio delivers exceptional handling capability. All Giulia models allow drivers to dial in performance, economy or normal settings that control suspension, engine and transmission response, while the Quadrifoglio adds a race mode that unleashes additional power from the turbo system and expands the car's handling limits.

The Giulia oozes Italian style, and the Quadrifoglio interior boasts an array of high-quality leather, Alcantara and carbon-fiber materials, comfortable seats and intuitive controls. The rear seats lack the kind of legroom found in rival sport sedans, but headroom is adequate.

The top-trim Quadrifoglio comes with heated seats, performance tires and brakes, and an infotainment system that includes navigation and voice or gesture control. Carbon-ceramic brakes and a package of driver safety aids are among the few available options. When you're ready, let Edmunds help find the right 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia for you.
