A new Veloce Ti model has joined Alfa Romeo’s Giulia line-up in the UK, sporting Quadrifoglio-inspired styling both inside and out, for a much cheaper price.
Dark 19-inch five-hole alloy wheels from the Quadrifoglio are fitted, plus a carbon grille and mirror caps, lighting pack and red brake callipers. The 2019 Veloce Ti can be ordered in any Quadrifoglio paint colour, including Competizione Red and Trofeo White. Also available is an optional £1650 Carbon Pack with the Quadrifoglio’s carbonfibre lip spoiler, carbon-insert side skirts and carbon gearshift insert.
Inside, the Ti adds Quadrifoglio Leather-and-Alcantara heated sports seats with eight-way adjustment, carbon interior trim, leather dashboard, ambient lighting, black headlining, illuminated carbon door sills and climate pack. The Veloce Ti is priced at £45,500, some £6525 more than the regular Veloce. Meanwhile, 2019 model year upgrades see all Giulia and Stelvio models now include 8.8- inch Alfa Connect with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
New Euro 6D engines arrive for the Giulia and Stelvio, with diesel models benefiting from the addition of AdBlue, which sees the 2.2 diesel engines gain an extra 10hp. As a result, the 150hp engine rises to 160hp and the 180hp model to 190hp. NOx emissions are also reduced. Petrol engine power outputs remain unchanged.
Spec upgrades to the Giulia Speciale include new 18-inch wheels, rear privacy glass, aluminium kick-plates and black brake callipers, while Veloce models have new dark-finish wheels, rear privacy glass and keyless entry. The range-topping Giulia Quadrifoglio also gets rear privacy glass, anodised black brake callipers and 40/20/40 split fold rear seats, with a third rear central seatbelt.
As for the Stelvio, the Super now has Michelin winter tyres as standard, while the Speciale adds rear privacy glass, aluminium kick plates and black callipers. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio also gains rear privacy glass, black callipers and new 20-inch wheels.
