The Veloce is a new model that balances the dynamics and comfort of the Alfa Romeo Giulia range to offer affordable performance and luxury, sitting between the Giulia Speciale and flagship Giulia Quadrifoglio in the line-up.
The new Giulia Veloce debuts in Europe with an exclusive 2.0-litre turbo engine, partnered with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive. The four-cylinder engine is made entirely of aluminum, generating 280 hp taking it from 0-100 km/h in just 5.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 149 mph.
In addition to the MultiAir electro-hydraulic valve activation system, it also features a "2-in-1" turbocharger system and direct injection, with 200-bar pressure.
The Giulia Veloce shares the enhanced sports exterior styling of the Speciale, including sports bumpers, black gloss window surround and rear sports diffuser with dual exhausts, but adds 18-inch 10-spoke Turbine alloy wheels and black brake calipers.
Misano Blue paint is available, as an option, exclusively on the Giulia Veloce. The same quality feel continues inside with a driver-focused layout, which is complimented by a choice of black, tan or red Italian leather Sport seats and aluminum shift paddles on the steering column.
Standard equipment on the Veloce includes front and rear parking sensors, headlamp washers and upgraded braking system with larger diameter front and rear brake discs, on top of the standard dual-zone climate control, Alfa DNA driving mode selector and 8.8-inch Alfa Connect infotainment system.
Achieving a five-star Euro NCAP rating and 98 per cent score for passenger safety, all models in the Giulia range
includes Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian recognition, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Integrated Braking System (IBS) and cruise control with speed limiter.
