The Alfa Romeo Giulia is an upcoming compact executive car model by Alfa Romeo. It will replace the 159 and it is planned to be unveiled in 2014 as sedan/saloon and station wagon/estate body styles.

Engines[edit]

The engines will likely be various Multijet diesels and petrols, with a V6 as the top powertrain, which may be the only engine available in the US.

Alfa have also confirmed a new 1.8 litre 300 PS (221 kW; 296 hp) engine, which may replace the Alfa Romeo V6, with production of this new engine starting in the next few years.

The 1750TBi will probably be used as well. In the 159, this engine produces 200 PS (147 kW; 197 hp); however, the Giulietta QV (Quadrifoglio Verde (Green Cloverleaf)) version of this powertrain produces 235 PS (173 kW; 232 hp).

The Giulia will probably be available with a six-speed manual gearbox, and the new AlfaTCT twin clutch six-speed semi-automatic. There is still some uncertainty what platform the car will use. It may have rear-wheel drive.[2]
