The updated Alfa Romeo Giulia arrives in Australian dealerships in June, priced from $68,450 before on-road costs.
Pricing and specifications for the flagship twin-turbo V6 Quadrifoglio will be revealed later, ahead of a launch in the fourth quarter of this year.
Cosmetic changes for the Giulia include matrix LED headlights, a new grille, and darkened tail lights, while inside there’s a new 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
The local range has been reshuffled again. After dropping the base Sport for 2022, leaving just the Veloce and Quadrifoglio, Alfa Romeo Australia has added a new base model.
Called the Ti, it brings the base price back below the $70,000 mark, though it’s $4500 pricier than the old Sport.
The Veloce also gains as standard some features, like a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, that were previously included in an optional Lusso pack.
However, adaptive suspension remains off the menu for the core Giulia range, having been removed from the Veloce for 2022.
Pricing is unchanged from 2022 for the Veloce, at $74,950 before on-road costs.
