Alfa Romeo Giulia Wins Car and Driver Award


If there's one thing that is known about Alfa Romeo vehicles, it is that they are expertly crafted, luxury machines, that are built to make driving a premium experience. That is why we can't say that we're surprised to learn that during this past November, the Alfa Romeo Giulia was named to Car and Driver's 2018 10Best Cars list. We're happy to see that Car and Driver has recognized what we have known all along--that the Giulia has reinvented what it means to be a premium midsize sedan. In order to do so, the Giulia has an unprecedented level of Italian craftsmanship, state-of-the-art technology, a true passion for the act of driving, and class-leading performance. We can't think of a more deserving vehicle to be on the 10Best Cars list.

What engine options help make the Giulia so special?

To start, the Giulia comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission, which has the ability to produce 306 pound-feet of torque and 280 horsepower. That amount of power leads the class segment. The combination of the transmission and the engine allows for the Giulia to launch from zero to sixty miles per hour in a best-in-class 5.1 seconds. The top speed that is achieved is 149 miles per hour. Another engine, which can be found in the Giulia Quadrifoglio, is the twin-turbocharged all-aluminum 2.9-liter V6. This engine can produce a best-in-class 505 hp, and has the ability to not only go from 0-60 mpg in 3.8 seconds, but has made a record-setting lap time of 7:32 around the Nürburgring. No other four-door production sedan has achieved that time.

What other features make the Giulia stand out?

Every Alfa Romeo Giulia comes with a long list of standard features. These features include bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lights, leather seating, and a back-up camera that comes with park sensors. You'll also notice a 50/50 weight distribution that can be credited to the rear-wheel drive Giorgio architecture, which is all-new. The weight distribution is also thanks to the standard, and class-exclusive carbon fiber driveshaft. Although we already mentioned the engine options, it is important to reiterate that the horsepower created by those engines leads the midsize sedan class segment, meaning that this truly is a powerful vehicle. Finally, the Alfa Romeo Giulia continues the performance sedan tradition that it has had for 55 years. Alfa Romeo itself has had over 100 years of that kind of excellence that they have carved out themselves. The unique Italian craftsmanship is truly just what is to be expected with high-quality materials, and a legend that has continued to grow.

What is Car and Driver?

If you haven't heard of Car and Driver, then you are missing out on a magazine that is run by an expert editorial team that love and care about automobiles as much as we do. They even reach the largest audience of any kind of automatic magazine, meaning that in the car industry, Car and Driver matters. You can find this expert team through their website, iPhone apps, Twitter, radio, and custom marketing programs. They truly are everywhere, and they are incredibly well respected in the car world. 


In 1910, the legend of Alfa Romeo began in Milan, Italy. Since the conception, this car company has created the most exclusive and stylish vehicles in automatic history. That kind of tradition has withstood the test of time, and as evidenced by this award being given to the Giulia, that tradition isn't going anywhere. Alfa Romeo has made the most technologically advanced vehicles that have continued to improve year after year, and nothing is stopping them from continuing to make these premium vehicles far into the future.
