Driving report alfa romeo giulia veloce

With the front-wheel drive exotics such as the coupe brera and the failed spyder, true alfisti could do little to nothing. New models should help the once so powerful brand alfa romeo again on the legs. Now comes out the fourth version of your sporty mid-range limousine giulia. The nickname "veloce" (quick) bumped to the traditional giulietta veloce from 1956, which stood for pronounced sportiness. A 2.2-liter diesel with 154 kw / 210 hp or a 2.0-liter ottomotor with 206 kw / 280 hp are relevant as motorizations for the four-wheel drive four-wheeler. We tried the gasoline motorization.

Giulia, sport and quadrifoglio makes the giulia veloce alfa’s mid-range series at prices of 46.800 euro for diesel and 47.800 euro for otto motorization now to the quartet. The athletic elegant appearance achieves alfa with slight modifications to the stobschinern and 18 inches of alloy wheels. The interior wins by extensive standard equipment. The pleasant, electrically adjustable and heated sports leather seats and leather on the dashboard spread the right ambience. It remains almost something to tunes, but offers good ergonomics.


The two four-cylinders give the approximately 1600 kilograms weighing giulia considerable performance. 6.8 seconds the diesel giulia needs from 0 to 100 km / h, in just 5.2 seconds the gasoline engine does. The highest speed is 235 or 240 km / h. 4.7 liters of the self-zunder for 100 kilometers in the cycle, which outputs its maximum torque of 470 nm at 1750 / min, the gasoline with 400 nm at 2250 / min consumes 6.2 liters according to standard.

For the flat torque curve, a variable valve train ensures. In collaboration with the very gentle but perfectly accurate 8-speed automatic control of zf, the drive provides a proper torque in every driving situation. Usually enough to act the gearbox, in the dynamic of the three driving modes, the machine switches faster and stop a high speed. Driver intervention allows the gearbox over rough switch pads on the steering wheel. We sometimes used them to downshadow before curves or gradients, simply because we recognize the increased power requirement (yet) earlier than the gearbox.
