Which Alfa Romeo Is Right for You?

If you want to experience Italian style, sophistication, and luxury in your next vehicle, then Alfa Romeo is impossible to beat. Compared to a lineup like what Chevy or Ford offers, Alfa Romeo doesn’t exactly drown you in options, but you still have five fantastic models to choose from. Technically, there are more vehicles than that available from this legendary brand, but if you’re looking to drop a cool million on the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, then you probably have a personal shopper handling everything for you; the rest of us will stick to the five standard models.

To be honest, it’s really just three models, with a second variation available for two of them, but to keep things simple, I will break them up into five sections. Just keep in mind that if you’re looking for a big-picture overview, then there are three models to focus on first: the 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Stelvio, and the Tonale—the Giulia and Stelvio both have performance-focused Quadrifoglio models available. You can think of them like the M Performance models that BMW offers for many of their vehicles, with similar features to the baseline version but with a lot more power packed in. Let’s look closer at the Alfa Romeo lineup for this year, and you’ll see what I mean.

The 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia

First up, we have the Giulia, the sedan that you can currently get in Alfa Romeo’s lineup, which has a high-performance Quadrifoglio version that we’ll look at in a moment. For starters, the Giulia looks absolutely stunning; this is a gorgeous sedan that makes an immediate impression. Its modern aesthetics are paired perfectly with elegant shapes and curves. Beyond that, it’s powered by a beefy 2.0L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 280 hp and 306 lb-ft of torque, giving it a top speed of 149 mph. Rear-wheel drive (RWD) pushes the Giulia forward with incredible acceleration, and Alfa Romeo’s legendary attention to engineering has created a car with precise handling that feels amazing on the road.

Inside the Giulia, you’ll find an interior that lives up to Alfa Romeo’s reputation for quality and sophistication in every way. Leather-trimmed seats, with available red leather for added style, feature 10-way power-adjustable functionality with rear seat heating. Modern tech features are everywhere to be seen, including a wireless charging pad, 8.8-inch Multi Touch Infotainment display, 12.3-inch Driver Information Digital Gauge Cluster Display, and a 14-speaker 900 W sound system. Throw in fantastic standard safety features like a Forward Collision Warning with Full Stop, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection, and you have a car that you’ll look forward to driving every day.

The 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

Italian for “four-leaf clover,” the Quadrifoglio is Alfa Romeo’s high-performance brand and model designation created for vehicles that are in a league of their own. Visually, this model looks a lot like the standard Giulia from the outside, though it clearly has a more powerful front end that gives it a bolder, more aggressive look overall. This is appropriate since the Giulia Quadrifoglio has a monster of a 2.9L Twin-Turbocharged V6 under its hood. The engine delivers 505 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, paired with an incredibly fast eight-speed automatic, which comes together to let it go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds as you enjoy a top speed of 191 mph. You’ll find the same incredible interior luxury and tech features here as in the standard Giulia, along with an exclusive Race Mode on its DNA Drive Mode Selector that lets you enjoy its rocket-ship acceleration.

The 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Interested in a crossover SUV rather than a sedan? No problem—Alfa Romeo has you covered with a couple of fantastic options for 2024, starting with the stunning Stelvio. This is a compact crossover model offered with either standard RWD or available all-wheel drive (AWD) to give you the kind of driving experience you prefer. Powering the Stelvio is the same fantastic engine you’ll find in the Giulia: a 2.0L Turbocharged I-4 that puts out 280 hp and 306 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This lets the Stelvio go from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds to ensure you enjoy yourself every time you get behind the wheel.

If you like what the Giulia has going for it, then you’ll love the Stelvio, as it includes many of the same great features inside and out. Here, you’ll find LED Matrix-Style Trilobe headlights featuring a 3+3 design that perfectly complements its bold and stylish front end. An available hands-free power liftgate makes it easy to load and unload cargo from the rear of the Stelvio, while you’ll enjoy an available leather-trimmed cabin with sport seating, paddle shifters, and a wireless charging pad. With a 12.3-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display, 8.8-inch Multitouch Infotainment screen, and an available 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, the Stelvio drips with the most-refined luxury imaginable.

The 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio

Just like the Giulia, Alfa Romeo offers an incredible Stelvio Quadrifoglio model with unassailable sophistication and pulse-pounding power. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is powered by the same engine as the other Quadrifoglio model: a beastly 2.9L Twin-Turbocharged V6 that puts out 505 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. With this engine roaring under its hood, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and enjoys a top speed of 176 mph just for good measure. AWD is standard on this one to ensure you get the best driving experience possible with precise handling and responsive traction, along with an active suspension system for a smooth ride and near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution that creates incredible balance.

The 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale

Rounding out the lineup of Alfa Romeo offerings, the Tonale is a subcompact crossover that’s smaller than the Stelvio but doesn’t lack any of its charm. This is the first model year for this exciting new option, which is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) that’s ready to give us a look at the future of this legendary Italian car company. The Tonale is powered by a 1.3L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor on its rear axle for hybrid power. Together, these deliver an impressive 285 hp and 347 lb-ft of torque, letting it go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds.

Not only is it fun to drive, but the Tonale is surprisingly practical thanks to 360 miles of total driving range from a full tank, plus it can go an estimated 32 miles with a full charge without ever touching the gas tank. Inside, you’ll find stunning features like available Alcantara seats with leather finishes throughout, plus an innovative new 12.3-inch Cannocchiale Digital Instrument Display with sleek curves and configurable features that let you get just what you need. Add in a 10.25-inch Multitouch Infotainment display that makes your apps easy to use, plus heated and ventilated seats to keep you comfortable in all kinds of weather, and you’ve got something exceptional.

Ready to See What an Alfa Romeo Can Do?

As you can see, Alfa Romeo has chosen the 2024 model year as the perfect time to really make a splash and let the rest of the auto industry know it means business. You’ve got updates and refreshes on the Giulia and the Stelvio—plus their Quadrifoglio models—and the introduction of a brand-new Tonale model that electrifies Alfa Romeo performance for a new generation of drivers. If this is what the brand’s future looks like, then I can’t wait to see how they continue to innovate and bring even more to the road. This is a good time to take a look at what Alfa Romeo has to offer and see if one of their models has what you’re looking for. Fair warning, though: good luck not falling in love the moment you experience this exquisite combination of gorgeous style and exhilarating performance.
