Review Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is one of the variations of the Giulia, the compact sports sedan that drivers will enjoy driving to their destination, no matter where that happens to be. The Quadrifoglio is the top trim level of the Giulia, offering power that can compete with sports cars, such as the Mercedes-AMG C63 and BMW M3.

Plenty of Power

You will feel no lack of power behind the wheel of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, thanks to its 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6. The 8-speed automatic transmission sends 505 horsepower to the back wheels to give you all the thrills you need. That peak horsepower arrives at the redline of 6,500 rpm. The 443 pound-feet of torque arrives at 2,500 rpm, and the automatic transmission comes with paddle shifters.

The Quadrifoglio has an active suspension that allows for comfort when you use it as a daily driver in Natural Mode. Or you can turn a knob and show off the sports sedan’s power on the road course. Either Dynamic or Race Mode delivers a growling engine with rapid revs. The ride also gets stiffer without feeling punishing.

Sleek and Sporty Styling

Looking at the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio will show you the sleek, sporty styling you expect from a sedan of its nature. Instead of sharp angles, it has rounded curves. Plus, the signature shield grille catches the eye at the front of the vehicle. The Quadrifoglio is the most menacing of the group, particularly with the quad tailpipes in chrome that ensure everyone knows what your vehicle is capable of.

The LED headlights illuminate your path, while the narrow taillights are a nice touch. The four-leaf clover badges on the fender show off the heritage of this Alfa Romeo, which was indeed inspired by the automaker’s racing cars.

Cabin Comfort

The driving experience was clearly a priority with the Giulia Quadrifoglio, which translates into well-bolstered front seats, a tight rear seat, and a trunk has just enough room without too much extra. Those luxurious front seats come with memory for the driver and 10-way power adjustment plus Nappa leather as standard for the Quadrifoglio. Or you can opt for sports seats that are crafted with carbon fiber and designed by Sparco for an aggressive feel. Other than this, you will notice soft-touch materials on the dash panels and full door, helping deliver that quality feel.

With all that power, you need safety systems to watch your back, and the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio delivers. All models have rear park assist, a rearview camera, and expected features, like stability control and knee airbags. The Giulia Quadrifoglio also has front park assist, blind spot monitoring, forward collision alerts, and a set of automatically dimming exterior mirrors.

You can supplement this with a Driver Assistance Dynamic Plus Package that gives you adaptive cruise control, automatic high beam headlights, lane departure alerts, and automatic emergency braking. This model is a Top Safety Pick with the high-beam adaptive headlights and automatic emergency braking, giving you confidence as you drive.
