Alfa Romeo has unveiled the revised Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio twins, with most of the updates focussed on improving the driving environment and adding extra safety features.

The new Quadrifoglio siblings are due to arrive in Australia by the end of 2020.

Both the Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models continue to feature an eight-speed automatic and a twin-turbo 2.9-litre V6 with 375kW and 600Nm.

This motor is hooked up to the rear wheels in the Giulia, while the Stelvio has all-wheel drive.

Externally the updated Quadrifoglio twins are hard to pick out from their forebears, with tinted LED tail-lights and new paint options — including 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra and Montreal Green — the most obvious changes.

New options for both performance vehicles include a titanium Akrapovič exhaust system with carbon-fibre exhaust tips, and carbon-fibre grille, mirror caps and rear spoiler.

Stelvio buyers can also pony up for 21-inch alloy wheels.

The changes to the cabin are more extensive, with a new 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a new look leather steering wheel and shift lever.

There’s also a redesigned centre console with more storage space, and sports seats trimmed in leather and faux suede.

As part of the update buyers can opt for either perforated leather seats, or carbon-shell Sparco front seats.

Like lesser Giulia and Stelvio models, the Quadrifoglio sedan and crossover are now available with Level 2 autonomous vehicle functionality.

In this mode the Quadrifoglio is capable of steering, braking, and accelerating by itself within its own lane, although the driver must remain alert and keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times.

Safety features available in the updated Quadrifoglio range include lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, active blind spot assist, traffic sign recognition, driver attention monitoring, traffic jam assist, and highway assist.
