Alfa Romeo has launched 2019 model year updates for its Stelvio SUV and Giulia saloon, which include cleaner engines as well as a new trim level on the Giulia.
The engines have been tuned to meet Euro 6D emissions regulations, with all diesel engines now featuring AdBlue emissions reduction technology, as well as having a boost of 10bhp – meaning the 2.2-litre unit now produces either 158bhp or 187bhp.
While the Veloce Ti trim level for the Giulia was announced at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last month, prices for this model have now been announced and will start from £45,500. The Veloce Ti is designed to offer the looks of the Quadrifoglio (QV) super-saloon, but with a more pedestrian engine. It adds electric leather and Alcantara heated sports seats, carbon interior trim, a leather dashboard, 19-inch alloys and red brake callipers on top of the Veloce’s standard equipment.
The Veloce Ti can also be ordered in any of the Quadrifoglio colours, and comes with the option of a carbon package and further tweaks to make it look like even more like the QV.
All Giulias and Stelvios now come with an 8.8-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, while the Stelvio now comes with Michelin CrossClimate all-season tyres.
Other trim levels – including the Speciale, Veloce and Quadrifoglio – have also received equipment boosts.
Both now come with the ‘5-3-5’ package, which offers five years warranty, three years free servicing and five years of roadside assistance. It’s a recently launched service that’s offered across the FCA Group’s brands.
Prices for the updated Giulia start from £32,490, while the Stelvio costs from £36,990. Both are available to order now.
