Which Giulia does Edmunds recommend?

The turbo 2.0-liter engine in the Giulia and Ti models packs some punch, but the model we'd recommend getting is the top-shelf Quadrifoglio since the Giulia prioritizes performance so much. Consider the Driver Assistance Dynamic Plus package if you want the latest in advanced driver safety aids, such as forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. We've found the standard Brembo brakes and heated sport seats more than adequate, so there's little reason to get the pricey carbon-ceramic brakes and less adjustable (and non-heated) Sparco racing seats.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

6.9 / 10

Audi. BMW. Mercedes. These are the popular brands people reflexively shop when looking for a luxury sedan. But what if you find them to be a bit boring or complacent? That's where the 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia comes in. This luxury sedan newcomer isn't well-known, but once you see it, it's hard to ignore.

On the outside, the Giulia looks like nothing else on the road thanks to its taut styling and classic Alfa Romeo grille. The beauty is more than skin-deep, too. The underlying hardware is competitive, with the base Giulia and Giulia Ti receiving a lively 280-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels through a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission.

It's the top-of-the-line Giulia Quadrifoglio trim, however, that truly makes its presence known by aggressively gunning for top performance honors of the class. It comes outfitted with a powerful Ferrari-developed turbocharged V6 engine, weight-saving carbon fiber, articulating aerodynamics, and a whole host of other speed-enhancing features to win over the hearts and wallets of performance fans.

That said, the Giulia has its work cut out for it. Alfa's dealer network is small, and the jury is still out regarding the model's reliability. But if you're looking for a small luxury sedan that brings some passion to the segment, the Giulia could very well be your car.

Notably, we picked the 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio as one of Edmunds' Best Sport Sedans for this year.

2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia configurations

The 2018 Giulia comes in six trims: the entry-level Giulia and Giulia Sport; the midtier Ti, Ti Sport and Ti Lusso; and the high-performance Quadrifoglio. The Giulia and Ti models come with a nice amount of standard equipment and are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (280 horsepower, 306 pound-feet) that puts its power to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is also available for all 2.0-liter cars. The Quadrifoglio demonstrates the full potential of the car, including a Ferrari-derived turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine (505 hp, 443 lb-ft).

Some of the key standard exterior features on the base Giulia include 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires, Brembo brakes, xenon headlights, automatic wipers, rear parking sensors and a rearview camera. Inside, you'll find remote keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, dual-zone climate control, adjustable drive models, a driver information display, Bluetooth, a 6.5-inch central display, voice commands, three USB ports and an eight-speaker audio system.

This year Alfa Romeo introduces the Giulia Sport trim, which is essentially the Sport package from the previous year. The Sport trim adds unique front and rear fascias, 18-inch wheels, gloss black window trim and painted brake calipers. The Sport Interior package is still an option that includes aluminum trim, huge column-mounted aluminum paddle shifters, a leather steering wheel and sport pedals.

If you're looking to upgrade the infotainment system for either of the above trims, the Navigation package includes an 8.8-inch central infotainment display, navigation, a rotary controller and satellite radio. A complement to this would be the newly available 14-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is a stand-alone option on all trims.

A Cold Weather package is specific to the Giulia and Giulia Sport models, and adds heated seats, a heated steering wheel and heated washer nozzles. There are two levels of active driving assist packages. The Driver Assistance Static package includes front parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert and auto-dimming exterior mirrors. The Driver Assistance Dynamic Plus package adds adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams and a heat-reducing infrared reflective windshield.

The Giulia Ti comes with everything the Giulia model has, plus 18-inch alloy wheels, the front and rear parking sensors, the 8.8-inch display (navigation is an option), satellite radio and the aforementioned Cold Weather package. Adaptive xenon headlights are a stand-alone option.

The Ti Sport adds 19-inch alloy wheels, sport front seats (a worthwhile upgrade) and everything from the Sport trim and Sport Interior package mentioned above.

The Ti Lusso trim is more luxury-oriented and has different 18-inch wheels, comfort-oriented front seats, upgraded leather interior trim, an upgraded steering wheel and an interior air quality system. If you just wanted a leather interior, it's available as a Leather package.

The Ti Sport Performance package provides an additional step toward Quadrifoglio performance on the Ti Sport trim with adaptive suspension dampers and a mechanical limited-slip rear differential. And if you'd prefer just the performance package items without the Sport trim's aesthetics and interior bits, Alfa Romeo offers Ti Performance package, which also includes the column-mounted paddle shifters. The Harman Kardon premium audio system is an option as well.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio is the star of this show with its 505-hp V6 engine. It comes mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and features fuel-saving cylinder deactivation. Sadly, the six-speed manual transmission available in Europe isn't available in the U.S.-market models at this time.

The Quadrifoglio's list of standard equipment is lengthy, which is good news for buyers. There's a high-performance Brembo brake system and a torque-vectoring rear differential that can transfer 100 percent of available power to either rear wheel. A two-mode exhaust with bypass valves offers varying levels of engine music depending on your mood, and a carbon-fiber active front splitter adjusts for more aerodynamic downforce at speeds above 75 mph. An adaptive suspension and 19-inch wheels with super-sticky Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires round out the big hardware items.

Looking over the Quadrifoglio, you'll be able to pick out the aggressive model-specific details such as the front fascia, grille, carbon trunk spoiler, bi-xenon adaptive headlights, and rear diffuser with quad exhaust tips. But beneath the painted surfaces hides a lightweight hood and roof made of carbon fiber. Moving inside, you'll find carbon-fiber trim, additional drive modes, and almost all of the features that are optional on the less expensive Giulias.

A few options are available at the Quadrifoglio level. They include the Driver Assistance Dynamic Plus package mentioned earlier, leather and simulated-suede ultra-high-performance Sparco carbon-fiber racing seats (driver and front-passenger seats with two-way and four-way power adjustments, respectively, and no heat), a carbon-fiber-detailed steering wheel and an ultra-high-performance Brembo carbon-ceramic brake system.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our first drive of the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti (turbo 2.0L inline-4 | 8-speed automatic | AWD).


To be the least bit competitive, a sport sedan must perform well across most categories. Thanks to its electronics and uninspiring tires, the Giulia can be a little bit hit-and-miss when it comes to handling but not so much than you don't look for any excuse to go for a spirited drive.


This motor offers quite a bit more excitement than the on-paper specifications would lead you to believe. It's snarly, torquey, low-revving and full of character. It's a good match for the quirky Alfa. During testing, 0-60 mph came in 5.3 seconds with quick shifts and no wheelspin from the AWD.


Braking force is very easy to modulate with a smooth, linear response through the pedal stroke, but panic-braking tests revealed a pedal devoid of any feedback. Stability is excellent but the long-ish 124-foot stopping distance from 60 mph can be chalked up to the low-grip all-season tires.


When driven in Dynamic Mode, the way a sporting Alfa should be driven, the weighting is spot-on. And when you combine that just-right amount of effort with the accuracy, steering quickness and the near-perfect steering wheel, you can't help but go hunting for the perfect line through every corner.


The lackluster all-season tires are only partially to blame, but their use is puzzling on a sport sedan. Offering more noise than grip, they take the fun out of a spirited drive. But the non-defeatable stability control is the real buzzkill, allowing only a tantalizing glimpse of fun.


Of the driving modes, Dynamic makes the most sense in the Alfa, though a case can be made for Natural in light traffic in which you still have quick shifts and access to decent power. The Alfa is always engaging, even in town, but it needs to be driven on a good road to be truly appreciated.


The front passengers will no doubt be more impressed with the Alfa than those in the rear, but that's not too different from any other sport sedan. While tire and wind noise can fade into white noise, various creaks and groans can be distressing to people on board.

Seat comfort

Firm but comfortable and aggressively supportive, the front seats in the Giulia are some of the best available in an already strong class. Both driver and passenger seats are heated and offer six-way power adjustability. The rear seats lack significant legroom for adults.

Ride comfort

The Giulia is supple when it needs to be but well-controlled when you want it, especially at higher speeds. The sensible 18-inch wheels give you some tire sidewall to absorb imperfections, though the run-flat tires can be a little harsh on rough roads.

Noise & vibration

Road noise isn't unusually high, even with the run-flat tires, but wind noise is a bit elevated at the front roof pillars and the front of the sunroof. Unfortunately, squeaks and creaks were prevalent and worrying, especially when coming from structurally important things such as the side pillars.

Climate control

With three knobs and only a few buttons, the basic manual controls are clear and easy to use. Air flow is good from the horizontal center vents, but the auto setting had a tough time keeping the temperature and fan speed under control. Manual adjustment is the best bet.


Since this is a driver's car, it should be no surprise that the driver comes out well ahead in the interior of the Alfa Romeo. Rear passengers won't have much room to get in or get comfortable, so it might be a bit of a fight for the shotgun seat position.

Ease of use

Most of the controls in the Giulia are familiar and and intuitive, even when they might be in a slightly different location, as with the start button. The multimedia control knob falls readily to hand and helps make easy use of the primary interface. There's a multitude of tedious menus.

Getting in/getting out

Front passengers won't notice anything unusual about getting into the Giulia even with the slightly aggressive seating. Rear passengers aren't as lucky. The door openings are very small due to intruding rear wheelwells, and they don't provide a lot of room to get in.

Driving position

The driver sits upright and close to the windshield in a very classic '80s European sport sedan style. It can be a bit foreign at first, but it's easy to adapt. And when you're driving enthusiastically, the driving position offers confidence, connectedness with the car, and a feeling of safety.


It's safe to say there's not a lot of room in the front of the Giulia that you don't need. If it's possible to be snug but spacious, the Giulia carries it off. The rear seat lacks the legroom we're accustomed to finding in much smaller cars. Adults may become uncomfortable in well under 30 minutes.


Because of the upright seating position and close proximity to the windshield, forward visibility is excellent. The reasonably narrow front pillars are welcome on tight and twisty roads. But that seating position did cause the side pillars to consistently obstruct over-the-shoulder lane checks.


Modern and definitely stylish at first glance, the Giulia makes a good first impression, but some materials have a distinctly preproduction feel and give the car an unfinished look. Numerous creaks and electronic gremlins cast a shadow of doubt on long-term integrity.


Style claims another victim as the Giulia lacks the generous trunk access and interior storage of most midsize sedans. But if you travel with little clutter and only basic luggage, the Giulia can still be a fairly practical proposition.

Small-item storage

There's a bit of wasted space around the shift lever and multimedia interface knob, and that's a shame since the Giulia isn't flush with interior storage. The door pockets are especially narrow, and it's best if rear passengers can keep everything in their pockets.

Cargo space

While the 13 cubic feet of cargo capacity is similar to capacity in its Audi and BMW competition, the Giulia has a high and slightly narrow trunk opening, making it difficult to put anything large and square into the trunk. The rear seats are split 60/40 and fold, lying relatively flat.

Child safety seat accommodation

LATCH points are easy to find and easy to access, but the lack of rear seat room might make it difficult to squeeze in larger child seats.


Buyers not looking for a technological tour de force might be happy enough with the Giulia's stout audio system and functional navigation. Beyond that, the Alfa Romeo has a lot of catching up to do, especially on the reliability front — tech gremlins were a constant annoyance.

Audio & navigation

The optional Harman Kardon sound system is solid and easy to use, but the navigation system lacks sophistication, especially when compared to the one in its Audi rival, the A4. The graphics are more of an outline than a realistic rendering, and live traffic information is not available.

Smartphone integration

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not supported, which is a bit disappointing. Connecting via Bluetooth is fairly straightforward but seems to take an eternity to load every time you start the car. Connection issues also plagued the Giulia with system lockups and the disappearance of paired phones.

Driver aids

The optional Driver Assist Dynamic Plus package includes a well-sorted adaptive cruise with stop, lane keeping assist, and a somewhat sensitive forward collision warning system. Blind-spot and cross-path detection are also optional. Sadly, the conservative stability control cannot be disabled.

Voice control

Voice controls make a good case for using the manual controls that fall quickly to hand. Word recognition wasn't particularly good, and sorting through the help menu took much more time than simply making the required change manually.

Review by Actual Owner
I see a some reviews by people who decided not to buy. I did lease one, and here's what I think. I have 3,500 miles of flawless performance on mine. This car turns heads. People stop to chat and ask about it. If you want to blend into the background, maybe it’s not the car for you. From every angle, it looks properly proportioned. The interior is beautiful, and is there a more striking logo than Alfa’s? I say “No” Best for last. Driving it. It’s not a weekend toy. I commute interstate, NY to NJ every day. Forty five miles each way. Hence the need for the adaptive cruise and forward collision warning. This allows the car to stop and go on its own in bumper to bumper traffic. Nice. When the roads are open, and that happens even in NY, it is wonderful. The chassis feels carved from stone, yet is somehow compliant over rough patches. It is inexplicably able to take curves flat at speed yet still be comfortable. This is not a big car. It is in looks and feel more like sports sedans before they became heavy and bloated. The Giulia is light and quick and instantly responsive. My 2002 BMW 3 series 5-speed was something like that, but this has that beat. Get an Alfa.
Best Kept Secret
Once you drive it, you will get out of the car handing your wallet and keys to your trade to the dealer as you will not possibly want to get back into your old car. My Giulia is my 15th car in 23 years. I had been researching for months a replacement for my E350. I have had all the Germans and a few Asian cars along the way, nothing like my Alfa. It goes like hell, turn the wheel and it follow your lead. So much power, yet very efficient. My local dealer was running great lease deals and until the Alfa I have not ever leased. Went to the dealer late on a Saturday night and drove the Giuila and Stelvio back to back, it was game over. I don't recall the last car I had that was so much fun to drive. I also love that it is unique and few others have them. Also appreciate that with a couple of packages it as all I need and the standards list is long. It has leather seats for example that so many of the competing cars offer at a hefty cost if at all. I am also a big guy over 6' and have ample legroom and am very comfortable inside. Within a week, my huge panoramic moonroof decided it was not going to open anymore. Took a week to get appointment at the dealer. The dealer does not offer loaners which made me apprehensive but they made the repair and had me on my way in a couple of hours with a wash. Few weeks back, went to leave in the morning and the trunk would not even open, the car was dead. Alfa customer service was very nice, tow truck came and jumped the car. I have not ever had to call roadside let alone be stranded by a car and was very angry about it. Headed to the dealer, they could not find anything wrong, washed the car and had me on the way. As soon as I opened the roof and got some music going on the fantastic Harman Kardon system, I could not stop smiling. The car is quirky but has so much character. The Mercedes dealer where my last car was serviced was so nice, fantastic service, appointments within hours as needed, free loaners and free car washes 5 days a week. The Alfa dealer is nowhere near that caliber but they are trying very hard and it is evident those who work there are passionate about the cars. If in the market for a sport sedan or SUV, go drive the Alfas, you will not be disappointed.
Amazing vehicle
I compared my loaded Giulia Ti Sport with other sports sedan I owned and recently test drove (Audi A4 and BMW 3 series, Maserati Ghibli). The Giulia gives a different feeling when you drive it and everyone obviously is highlighting the driving dynamics and the handling of this vehicle, but I want to stress its engineering and its quality control, that are usually exposed to old cliche' from people who actually nevere owned an Alfa or maybe had a bad experience back in the '80 so are not updated at all. The Giulia has a brand new engineering and platform and doesn't share anything from Fiat/Chrysler group. A profusion of aluminum and carbon fiber is used throughout the vehicle and the engine, steering and trasmission are a masterpiece. This, added to the racing expertise of both Alfa and Ferrari combined in this new project, reflects how wonderful is Giulia in and out. The seductive exterior design and the driving pleasure are both taken for granted by now (considered the best looking sedan with the best handling in the market) so I want to describe its quality: the interior is refined with the Luxury package added. Fit and finish is perfect, no noises coming out during the ride and the parts assembly is very accurate. Reliability has been incredible so far, not a single issue (even beating my Subaru which had a minor issue right after the purchase and a few annoyances during the time I owned it. The glitches reported on some of the earlier test models have been resolved by software updates few months ago and I purchased mine already with the SW update. In my ownership experience so far I can say that it is the best sports luxury sedan I've ever had and everytime I take it for a ride is a big pleasure for me! One last suggestion for interested buyers: pick a Ti Sport with full leather package and 19" rims. The exterior and interior style and feeling improve a lot! Finally, I wanted to address the negative "predicted" reliability that some automotive magazine and blogs like CR are always mentioning: I suggest to keep current and have a look at what is actually going on with updated surveys in Europe, where Alfa Romeo has been present continously, and actual consumer ratings, not to mention the Motortrend and Car and Driver most recent tests that lead to awards: https://www.whatcar.com/news/reliability-survey/ http://www.jdpower.com/.../Giulia/2017/consumer-reviews http://www.motortrend.com/.../alfa-romeo-giulia-2018-car.../ https://blog.caranddriver.com/a-brief-treatise-on-what.../
Love this car!
Had an initial problem with the turbo (replaced), but the dealer was fantastic and provided me with a brand new Mercedes GLC300 as a free loaner. The last 7000 miles have been flawless (9000 overall). It's my second Alfa and being Italian, reliability issues are expected. I will say this though, my wife's Mercedes has had five service trips in the first 20k miles, including four recalls and brakes replaced under warranty. From my experience, the Mercedes has been less reliable than the Alfa. I read an earlier post about the sunroof, mine has stopped several times but is easily fixed...the fix is easily found online and takes about a minute to reset. I love the car and will get another Alfa when the lease expires.

More about the 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia is the newest compact luxury sedan in the segment that prioritizes driving performance over everything else. In its first year of production, three trims were offered, but Alfa Romeo decided to create Sport and Lusso trims for 2018 from a few of last year's packages. With the Giulia's focus on performance, its sporting capability increases at each tier.

For 2018, six trims are available: Giulia, Giulia Sport, Ti, Ti Sport, Ti Lusso and Quadrifoglio. Though the Giulia's point of entry is higher than a lot of the competition, its standard features are also above average. To start, the standard turbocharged 2.0-liter engine makes a very healthy 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. Add to this strong Brembo brakes, xenon projector headlights with LED lighting, heated and power-folding mirrors, parking sensors and a rear camera with dynamic guidelines, and you get a rough idea of just how well a Giulia is equipped.

The Sport trim at the Giulia level is largely an aesthetic enhancement inside and out but for not much of a price jump. If you want to improve the Giulia's driving dynamics and functional equipment, you'll want to upgrade to the Ti Sport. The Ti Sport is a slightly bigger price bump but well worth the move in our opinion because you get the upgraded sport front seats. It'll also grant access to the Ti Sport Performance package that adds an adaptive suspension and a limited-slip differential.

A different path to upgrading the Giulia Ti is to go the route of the Lusso. Rather than focus on performance features, the Lusso comes with a more luxury-minded approach. The downside is it won't have access to the Sport's performance upgrades.

At nearly double the price and horsepower of the base car is the Quadrifoglio. To start, it has as standard equipment nearly every option available to the lower trim models. And the Quadrifoglio is the only trim with a clear advantage over its competition while in cross-shopping range.

Like the latest model iPhone, the Giulia can leave buyers uneasy because of its newness on the market. So before you make a decision, read about other people's experiences with owning a Giulia right here on Edmunds. It's just one of the great resources we offer to help you find the vehicle that suits you best.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
