MPG and running costs

A positive result of Alfa Romeo’s efforts in weight saving, the Giulia exhibits impressive economy numbers, which should help keep it desirable on the company car list. With MPG as high as 67.3mpg for both diesels, the Giulia about on par with the BMW 3-series and Audi A4 benchmarks. Petrol models both boast MPG figures in the mid 40s, a little off the pace (on paper, at least) compared to German benchmarks.

The big issue with the Giulia is in expected depreciation, as the Italian car will be unlikely to retain its value like most established rivals. Combined with a comparatively high purchase price, it could prove to be a deal-breaker for company buyers who will need to take it into account more acutely, and may result in less favourable lease deals than some of the cast-iron Germans.
