Alfa Romeo’s Giulia Quadrifoglio is recognized by enthusiasts everywhere and rightfully so, but the Giulia Ti may deserve a second look for those who want more bang for their buck.
Equipped with a 505-hp 2.9L V6 bi-turbo engine, the Giulia Quadrifoglio looks pretty tempting with its track-ready suspension, but the starting price tag of $72,000 may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
A base model Giulia in real-wheel-drive form for $38,000 may seem more reasonable in comparison and the Ti upgrade will only tack on an additional $2,000. That’ll give you a set of 18-inch alloy wheels and dark gray oak interior accents, 8.8-inch colour widescreen display and more.
Available to the Ti trim are a variety of packages including both Sport and Lusso appearance packages, the Ti Performance package for $1,200 and the Ti 18-inch Sport Package for an additional $1,750. There’s also an optional Vesuvio Gray exterior ($600) and additional leather interior trim ($995) available.
AutoBlog did the math and “the end result is a net price of $45,535 including applied offers.” Dealerships may also be offering lease specials like the Alfa Romeo dealer they talked to; a $44,000 Giulia could be leased for 39 month at a bit over $500 per month and a down payment of $7,500. At the end of those 39 month, the Giulia will have a residual value of $21,239 and the lease holder has the option of buying it at residual or retuning it to FCA.
