When the Giulia QV was released in 2016 the likes of What Car? and Auto Car were full of praise for the new car, as was Chris Harris when he took it for a spin recently on ‘Top Gear’. However, many reviewers noted that this car left a wide gap in the range, and the design team at Alfa felt there was only one trim name with enough prestige to sit just below the QV in the model line up.
First introduced by Alfa Romeo in 1956, the Veloce trim has always been used on the most distinctive and sporty Alfa models. When designing the new trim level, Alfa concentrated on making the car more accessible to the mainstream customer whilst retaining as much of the character and style of the QV as possible. The end result is a car that goes from 0-62 in a respectable 5.7 seconds, has 280 BHP, a top speed of 149 mph and starts from around £38000 – which is in the region of £22000 less than the QV version.
Specification highlights for the new Giulia Veloce include 19 inch QV alloy wheels, a 7 inch TFT colour cluster display, Alfa Connect satellite navigation system, Alfa D.N.A. pro (with race mode), dual-zone automatic climate control, rear-view camera and a sports exhaust with quad tailpipes.
“The QV has always been very popular with customers visiting the showroom here in Doncaster but it often works out to be way over many people's budgets,” Marcus Machin, Sales Manager at Pentagon Alfa Romeo said. “The Veloce offers a viable alternative to anyone who wants a more affordable version of the Giulia that doesn’t compromise too much on performance.”
Customers can order the new Giulia Veloce in a range of colours, including Blue Miscano (pictured) which is exclusively available on this trim level.
Drivers can test drive the new Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce now at Pentagon Alfa Romeo in Doncaster.
