The Italian company Alfa Romeo presented updated versions of its well-known models – the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio crossover. The cars are related to each other technically, and the upgrades are similar.

The most noticeable change is the appearance of new front optics. From now on, matrix LED low-beam and high-beam headlamps with a changed pattern of inner rings in the form of “3+3” are installed. In addition, equipment was revised and a new version called Competizione was added: gray matte body color, dark interior with red stitching, Harman/Kardon premium sound, shock absorbers with electronic adjustment. And even 21-inch wheels – but only for the Stelvio.

Another important change is hidden inside the car: a new instrument panel in the form of a 12.3-inch display. The latter can offer at once three options for settings, which are significantly different from each other. The first is a modern Evolved: semi-hidden hands and scales that seem to emerge from the abyss. The second is Relax: a minimum of information so as not to burden the driver on a long journey. Finally, the third is the historic Heritage: classic dials and hands, like in Alfa Romeo sedans from the 1960s and 1970s.

Alfa Romeo Giulia model is keen to emulate them, perfectly combining the traditional silhouette and historic name with cutting-edge materials and technology. After all, turbo engines are installed under the hood, they are complemented by an 8-speed “automatic” ZF and rear or all-wheel drive Q4.

By the way, there was a small update in the engine range: a basic engine was added, it is a turbodiesel with 160 “horses”. Its alternative is two more powerful engines – gasoline (280 hp) or diesel (210 hp) – which were previously offered for Alfa Romeo Giulia and Alfa Romeo Stelvio models.

Well, now we have to wait for the update for the “tuned” versions of these cars: it’s very interesting to know what they will show!
