Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce Ti trim added alongside Stelvio updates

New addition to the Giulia range mixes the Veloce and Quadrifoglio, while the Stelvio gets some mild updates too

Both the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio ranges have been reshuffled, with the arrival of a sporty new Giulia Veloce Ti to the saloon’s line-up the biggest news.

The Giulia Veloce Ti sits between the Veloce and full fat 503bhp Quadrifoglio model. Available exclusively with a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine developing 276bhp, it shares its powertrain with the Veloce, but its exterior design is inspired by the Quadrifoglio with an optional carbon fibre pack.

Also included are paint finishes previously reserved exclusively for the flagship model, plus darkened 19-inch alloy wheels. The interior gets a similar treatment too with Alcantara sports seats, carbon-fibre doorsills and trim pieces and a full leather dashboard. It’s priced from £45,500.

Elsewhere in the Giulia range, the Giulia Speciale and Veloce models gain new 18-inch wheel designs, alongside additional trim tweaks and kit such as new aluminium door plates, keyless entry, door handle lights and a driver’s side dashboard storage cubby.

Similarly, the Stelvio SUV line-up has been altered with an upgraded Speciale model. It gains rear privacy glass, aluminium doorsills and black brake calipers, as does the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which is completed with a set of 20-inch, silver coloured ‘five-hole’ alloy wheels.

Both the Giulia and the Stelvio are now equipped with an 8.8-inch infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

The revised cars are available to order now, with prices for the Giulia kicking off at £32,490 and the Stelvio beginning at £36,990. All cars now come with a five year/75,000 mile warranty as standard.
