Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

(2016 – present)

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a high-performance version of the Giulia saloon. Unlike most halo models, which tend to come along at least a year after the regular models are launched, the Quadrifoglio was unveiled at the same time as the rest of the Giulia range. It spearheads a revistalised Alfa Romeo range and is closely related to the Stelvio Quadrifoglio SUV.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio is powered by a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine developed by Ferrari. Even higher performance Giulia GTA and GTAm models will arrive in the second half of 2020, and we will update this page with the relevant details.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has received universally positive reviews and has won many awards since it was launched. It has been highly praised for its driving dynamics, with many reviews rating it more highly than the benchmark BMW M3. However, its interior quality is not considered to be of the same standard as its German rivals.
