Over the past several months, we have seen a number of mid-cycle-action (MCA) prototypes of the 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio testing on the public roads of Italy. The award-winning duo has received minor upgrades since their debut in 2016 and 2017, respectively. But for 2024, the MCA will be the biggest change for both models yet.
Both updated models will make their official unveiling in November, as confirmed by Alfa Romeo CEO, Jean-Philippe Imparato. The event in November should show off not just the updated Giulia and Stelvio, but the plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version of the Tonale.
Our friend Walter Vayr of GabetzSPYUnit (@GabetzSPYUnit), happened to catch the highest-performing Giulia out testing recently: the Giulia Quadrifoglio.
This latest series of photos shows us, minor changes to the high-performance Alfa sedan. Most of the changes are focused at the front of the vehicle, with an updated front fascia, and new LED Matrix headlamps that will help tie it and the Stelvio to the all-new Tonale’s design language better. A newly styled “Scudetto” grille and new grille mesh texture are so present.
Much of the side and rear, continue to be a carryover from the current styling.
Even more, the black tape helps to hide smaller detail changes to the front fascia, which include a newly styled “Scudetto” grille, a new grille mesh texture, and Quadrifoglio-inspired front air intakes into the corners of lower grille openings. We were hoping that the Stelvio’s rear taillamps would be updated as well, however, it appears that they will stay the same.
Inside, the Giulia will get some decent upgrades including an all-new infotainment system (based on Chrysler Group’s Uconnect 5 software), a new 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and some new higher-quality materials that will be used throughout the interior
Expect the current Ferrari-derived twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 to carry over untouched. That means 505 horsepower (377 kW) and 443 lb.-ft. (600 N•m) of torque on premium unleaded fuel. With a curb weight of 3,820 lbs, the rear-wheel-drive (RWD) Giulia Quadrifoglio features a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio of approximately 7 lbs per horsepower. This means the Giulia Quadrifoglio can deliver a 0 to 60 mph time in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 191 mph.
While the new models will reach Europe first in 2023, the updated Giulia should reach American shores in Q3 2023 as a 2024 model.
