Alfa Romeo releases their Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.0T, which has the sense of romanticism and mystique like the rest of their car range. It has been reviewed as a great ride, handles brilliantly and has a strong engine.
The 2.0T is an entry point into the Alfa Romeo Giulia range. It’s up against the stiffest of competition with the likes of the Audi A4 2.0TFSI, BMW 320i and the Mercedes-Benz C200. The Giulia 2.0T is powered by a frisky 2.0 litre turnbopetrol mated with an 8 speed automatic transmission. It offers basic luxuries – the real nice-to-haves are dispatched to the options list. The machine is distinguished by cloth seats, 16-inch wheels and a single-barrel exhaust pipe, successfully lure business class sedan buyers away from traditional fare by offering something that can’t be listed on the spec sheets. It looks purposefully sporty at the front and shapely at the rear. Reviews only noted two disadvantages- the car has tiny wheels and brakes difficult to modulate.
The comfort of the car is somewhat surprisingly, for a sedan with a sporty bent, the Giulia delivers a satisfying blend of thrilling dynamics and on-road pliancy, courtesy of a supple suspension.
It provides near C-Class levels of comfort in its ride, but it would be interesting to test it on slightly bigger wheels with a lower profile – something owners will probably opt to specify for their cars.
