Alfa Romeo updated Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio QuadrifoglioMay 7, 2020
Stelvio and Giulia were updated at the same time last year, but Italians kept secret the upgraded versions of Quadrifoglio. Up to this day.
It is not surprising that the versions of Quadrifoglio and Giulia, and Stelvio undergo the same changes that were made to the regular versions of the pair in November last year. Therefore, you can look for serious external improvements for a long time, but still the latest news is inside. The only exterior changes are, in addition to new color schemes, the appearance of a new LED optics with dark lenses, a glossy black grille and a set of 21-inch wheels.
Restyling did not affect the 2.9-liter Twin Turbo V6, with which Alfa Romeo delivers powerful Q-versions of Giulia and Stelvio. This powerful six-cylinder engine again delivers “only” 510 hp. and 600 Nm of torque. The twin-turbo engine still transfers power to the Giulia rear axle and all four Stelvio wheels.
The scenarios for the movement of Q models can be selected again using the four positions of the rotary knob of the DNA Pro system located in the central tunnel: Race, Dynamic, Natural and Advanced Efficiency (Eco). However, customers now have the opportunity to order a titanium exhaust system from Akrapovic with carbon fiber tips, which, according to Alfa Romeo, sounds even better than the standard system.
Alfa Romeo installed an updated steering wheel and leather-wrapped gearshift lever in the Giulia Q and Stelvio Q, but that’s not all. Italians offer sports seats upholstered in perforated leather, as well as belts that can be ordered not only in black, but also in red and green.
Like the regular Giulia and Stelvio, Q versions also use the new 8.8-inch screen, which comes with the new infotainment system and replaces the previous 7-inch display and gets touch control. Alfa Romeo claims to have used higher quality materials. Also new is the wireless charger for smartphones and the advent of larger, more affordable storage compartments.
Giulia and Stelvio Q are also being improved in terms of safety. Alfa Romeo introduces a package of systems called Advanced Driver Assistance System. The Italian duo will be provided with an active lane assistant, blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control that works along with the recognition of road signs, and finally, assistance in traffic jams on the highway.
Three new exterior paint colors were introduced for both models: 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra and Montreal Green. Order books for the updated Giulia and Stelvio Quadrifoglio will open this summer. Expected small increase in prices due to add-ons.
