Alfa Romeo’s Giulia QV has been splurged all over the internet of late – first after the official reveal and more recently after it was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show that the Giulia QV lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7 minutes 39 seconds, 13 seconds quicker than BMW’s M4. But whilst we know just about everything about the range-topping super-sedan, we know little else about the more affordable models that will make up the bread and butter of the Giulia’s sales. Until now…
AutoEvolution has managed to source details recently on the rest of the engine line-up that will power the Giulia – both petrol and diesel. It is reported that the Giulia will be powered by a range of Euro 6 emissions compliant 4- and 6-cylinder engines ranging from 99kW to 375kW in the QV model.
Besides the range-topping twin-turbo petrol V6, there will be only one other petrol engine available, a 2-litre 4-cylinder turbo unit available in 3 states of tune. The entry-level state of tune is good for 133kW, whilst a 184kW unit will provide ample competition for BMW’s 330i. The top-spec 4-pot will deliver 243kW apparently.
As for the diesel engines, of which there will again be 2, the entry point is a 2.2-litre 4-cylinder turbo with 99kW. This same engine will be available in two higher states of tune – 133kW and 154kW – whilst the oil-burner range will be topped off by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre V6 diesel good for 250kW.
Alfa Romeo is set to announce these details officially in December, as well as confirming torque and consumption figures. The Giulia is expected to launch first in European markets next year February, with the first produced units being the 2.2-litre diesels and the Quadrifoglio Verde super-sedan.
