Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio get first restyling with significant changes

It seems that the persuasion of the Italian automaker's fans has paid off, because the redesigned Giulia and Stelvio models now have headlight housings that recall the design solution that the Alfa Romeo offered with the recently released Tonale model.

The exterior of both updated models reveals slightly redesigned taillight housings, bumper sections and characteristic triangular radiator grilles, while adaptive Matrix LED lights are now standard equipment.

The main innovation in the interior refers to the new 12.3-inch digital instrument panel with three possible projections.

Traditionalists will probably like the design of the “Heritage” instrument best, which was inspired by the instruments on the Alfa models produced in the 1960s and 1970s.

Alfa Romeo will offer the revamped Giulia and Stelvio in combination with four equipment packages (Super, Sprint, Ti and Veloce).

There's also a new Competizione package that can be ordered alongside the Veloce package, and it features a matte gray body color and red brake calipers peeking out from behind the 21-inch alloy wheels.

The Competizione package also comes with additional tinted windows behind the B-pillars, a premium audio system (Harman Kardon) and the red thread used to sew the leather-covered seats, steering wheel, gearshift lever.

More details on the restyling of Alfa Romeo models

The only technical update is the return to service of the basic version with a 160 horsepower 2.1 turbodiesel and rear-wheel drive.

The Giulia and Stelvio were offered with this combination until 2020, and now both models have it back.

The set of other modifications is the same: the same 2.1 diesel engine is offered in 190 and 210 hp versions, and the 2.0 turbo petrol engine produces 200 or 280 hp.

All options are with an eight-speed automatic transmission, rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

The updated Giulia sedans and Stelvio crossovers will go on sale in February next year. In Italy, cars will cost from €49,000 and €56,000 respectively.
