Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio review - design

Alfa's first performance saloon in over a decade is a winner

Evo rating
  • Impressively fast, amazingly approachable
  • Perhaps not as pretty as an Alfa should be, quirky low speed behaviour

Design

Arguably the Giulia isn’t as outrageous or as pretty as Alfas should be. That’s not to say it isn’t a fine looking car, but it’s only recognisably an Alfa thanks to its huge heart-shaped grille rather than breaking the boundaries of design like Alfas used to.

From the rear the quad exhausts, pronounced diffuser and carbon spoiler give the Giulia some real aggression. It’s so mean that it almost makes the front look a little weedy by comparison.
