Expert Rating

Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

(2016 – present)

    Summary


    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 2021, 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, and it is one of the highest-rated cars according to our Expert Rating index with an outstanding score of 90% as of June 2022.

    The Giulia Quadrifoglio 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.

    As of June 2022, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio has not been lab tested by Green NCAP.

    If the Giulia Quadrifoglio is put through the Green NCAP lab testing programme, we will publish the results here. However, don’t be expecting an outstanding set of results from a 500hp petrol V6-powered sports saloon…

    Reliability rating

    As of June 2022, we don’t have enough reliability data on the Alfa Romeo Giulia to generate a reliability rating.

    The Car Expert’s reliability information is provided exclusive from extended warranty data from our partner, MotorEasy. As soon as MotorEasy has sufficient data on the Giulia, we’ll publish the score here.

    In owners’ surveys conducted by the likes of What Car? and Which?, the Giulia has scored very well. However, these are not based on verified objective workshop data.
