Italy’s Alfa Romeo has been in the business of selling cars since 1910. But the company is still carving out its niche in the American market. It largely re-entered the U.S. market in 2014. But it sold fewer total vehicles in the U.S. last year than BMW sold 3 Series sedans.
Alfa Romeo offers two vehicles in the U.S. – the Stelvio compact SUV and Giulia compact sedan. Reviewers like both. Each is among the sportiest options in its class, with gorgeous sheet metal and upscale cabins. It’s easy to stand out in a stylish Alfa in a parking lot full of similar German luxury cars.
But the brand has struggled to elbow its way into the American luxury car scene.
For 2022, Alfa has a plan for that. It involves standard features. Lots of standard features.
Every trim level of the 2022 Giulia gains heated front and rear seats, a new 8.8-inch touchscreen, wireless phone charging, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. A new cabin air filtration system is included. A full suite of automated safety systems is now standard as well, including adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring with emergency intervention. Bi-xenon headlights highlight the exterior changes, along with a darker grille and trim elements.
Prices go up by roughly $2,000 at every trim level to accommodate the richer equipment list. The Giulia will start at $42,960, plus a $1,495 destination fee.
The Stelvio likewise has the same list of standard equipment, plus darkened exhaust tips, skid plate, and roof rails for a tailored look. Stelvio prices jump by $2,800, to start at $45,150.
Both models also come in high-performance — and high-priced — Quadrifoglio form, packing a Ferrari-derived 505-horsepower twin-turbo V6.
