New Alfa Romeo Giulia 2022 – At the end of the year, five years will have already accumulated on the counter of the transalpine sedan, with a commercial record far from being shining. Despite the sinistrosis that is blowing in the family sedan segment, Alfa Romeo will offer a facelift to his Giulia, next year. An update with swansong accents for one that could definitely disappear within the range at the end of his career.
Early 2021, Biscione fell into the hands of the Stellantis group, born from the merger between the PSA and Fiat-Chrysler groups, propelling the former boss of Peugeot, Jean-Philippe Imparato, at the head of the Italian manufacturer. An appointment with almost immediate effect on the brand’s strategy, insofar as the French has already delayed the launch of the future compact SUV, named Tonale.
Without big stakes
Dissatisfied with the performance promised by the plug-in hybrid variants (190 hp and 240 hp) of the crossover, the French therefore postpones the lifting of the veil on this strategic model, which will compete with the Peugeot 3008 and Volkswagen Tiguan. But he will probably not have a say in the facelift of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, whose style is inevitably frozen, at the present time. However, if he had had the time, the new boss of the Italian firm would probably not have intervened in the genesis of this facelift, so much the stakes seem anecdotal.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulia modernized its bow, without touching its hood or its wings. Around’a new grille, it will stretch its air intakes towards original optics, whose light signature will be inspired by that inaugurated by the Tonale concept car, at the Geneva Motor Show, in 2018. These modifications will lead to the front bumper overhaul when his alter ego housed in the stern will evolve only by small touches. The rear of the sedan should however benefit new patterns of lights.
On board, it is to be feared that the new Giulia will ignore a facelift of its cockpit, knowing that the latter had taken advantage ofan update, early 2020. The beautiful Italian had then enhanced the quality of some of its materials and upgraded its multimedia baggage. On the engine side, it is said that hybridization will be the order of the day, but it is still too early to say that it will be a rechargeable technology. Then again, Alfa Romeo could offer only minimal service to its sedan, by simply converting its thermal blocks to a 48V mild hybridization.
Prix Alfa Giulia
Probably unveiled before the end of 2021, New Alfa Romeo Giulia set to start sales career in Q1 2022. This revisit will logically lead to a slight increase in prices, with a base price approaching 40,000 €, according to our estimate.
