2016 Alfa Romeo Giulia review, engine, release date

The new Alfa Romeo Giulia has introduced at the motor show in Milan. This car will definitely be a new trump card in the sales of Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne. Giulia will be a direct successor to the model 159. Although it was announced earlier that the new Alfa have front-wheel drive, it will not happen. The drive will be exclusively RWD. Another important thing is the length of the development of a new car. According to people from the company, a team of 10 top engineers and designers prepared a new model for only two and a half years !! According to the American model, this team is termed the “skunks”. Normal development of the new model car is 4 years. However, as market demand increasingly rapid changes, companies in the competition do not have time to create a new generation of models. Today, more generally companies makes only a facelift on older models, but the Giulia is something else. The main competitors for this car is the BMW M3.

The weight of this vehicle should be only 3300 pounds. According to the constructs and designers, they took important decisions to reduce vehicle weight. First of all, they should choose the parts of the vehicle that will be designed in aluminum. After much consideration, it was decided that door, suspension arms, fenders and engine will be made of aluminum. Other lightweight materials, carbon fiber has been selected for the construction of roof, boot, seat structure and propshaft.
