2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

We took the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio to the canyon roads outside of Los Angeles to see if it's fun as it is fast.

What Is the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia?

The Giulia is Alfa Romeo’s entrant in the compact luxury sports sedan class, which is crowded with the likes of the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. Offered in rear- or all-wheel-drive form, the Giulia’s base engine is a 280-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that works with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. The high-performance Quadrifoglio trim level is rear-drive only, and it packs a 505-hp, twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6. 

What’s New on the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia?

New standard tech features include an 8.8-inch touchscreen multimedia system and a 7-inch instrument panel display. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard, and newly available active safety features include traffic jam assist, traffic sign recognition, lane-keep assist and a driver-drowsiness monitor. Interior changes include a new center console and new steering-wheel designs.

What Features in the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Are Most Important?

While not as luxury-focused as its German rivals, the Giulia does offer standard leather seats and bi-xenon headlamps. All versions come with Alfa Romeo’s DNA drive-mode selector, but performance-oriented buyers will gravitate to the Quadrifoglio, which is a blast to drive. All Giulias have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia?

The Giulia is an incredibly rewarding car to drive, with great handling and powerful engines. Compared to the competition, interior quality is so-so, but if you’re a driving enthusiast and want a great-driving car, the Giulia is worth a long look.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
