Brand new entry-level Alfa Romeo Giulia spy shots have surfaced before the car makes its expected world debut at the IAA Frankfurt Motor Show 2015 in September. While it remains to be seen how many variants of the Giulia to sit below the range-topping QV will be offered, the firm recently revealed it is working on both a four-cylinder and a diesel V6.
From these spy shots, it is obvious that the more affordable versions of the Giulia won’t receive the bold bumpers and body panels like the QV. Instead, we can see a more subtle front bumper on this test mule without the active front splitter of the QV. Additionally, smaller diameter wheels have been fitted. The bold bootlid lip spoiler of the QV has also been ditched.
In Giulia QV guise, we know that the car’s Ferrari-derived twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivers 510 hp therefore making it significantly more powerful than the 425 hp BMW M3 and slightly more so than the Mercedes-AMG C63 S. Thanks to this power, the car sprints to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds.
While no pricing details for the car have been revealed, it is inevitable that in all of its guises, it will be priced similarly to the BMW 3-Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class ranges.
