The Fast Lane Car Deems 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio as “A Looker From all Angles”

July 21, 2020



Being poised right in the dog days of summer is a fantastic and exciting time for us here at Jim Butler Alfa Romeo of St Louis. The roads that are most fit to find solitude on during a drive are free of winter weather, it is a perfect time to soak up some natural Vitamin D, and next details regarding next year's models are jamming the blogs and newswires. This past week the staff at Fast Lane Car Review took a lengthy spin in the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and immediately fawned over it before even getting in saying, “it was a definite looker from all angles.”

 

You may be cruising the roadways or making your way through a curvy canyon road: there are never any complaints from a single soul about what Alfa Romeo has accomplished with the Giulia's design. We agree with writer Derek Mau 100% when he claims that few cars at all in existence can measure up to the Italian's “esperienza di guida emozionante.” This dazzling model has the potential to generate a startling 505 horsepower and 443 pound-ft of torque from its 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6.

 



With all this power at its disposal, the Giulia Quadrifoglio accomplishes the zero to sixty dash in just 3.8 seconds, boasting a top speed of 191 Mph. There is (regrettably) no manual transmission available, but the most thorough of purists will still love the way the 8-speed automatic performs in a pinch. Derek claims that once you get behind the wheel, you will be overwhelmed instantly by an out-of-this-world and incredible driving experience. You can exercise control and confidence while enjoying an unbelievable dose of steering response and sensitivity on all suspension fronts.

 

When you are really picking up speed and beginning to approach the limit-pushing zone in the Giulia, you still have a very real and accurate sense of exactly where the wheels are, and stability when aiming for any change in the road 25 or so yards ahead. For the 2020 model, most of the updates occurred in the cabin that showcases an all-new center console and a new, standard, 8.8-inch touchscreen.

 



The infotainment system gets an improved user interface, a faster processor, fancier graphics, driver-configurable widgets and performance pages that display real-time horsepower, torque delivery, turbo pressure, engine and transmission temps, and race timers. There is a brand-new steering wheel, sport seats with leather and Alcantara options, leather-trimmed gear shifter, and Advanced Driver Assistance that delivers level 2 autonomous driving. In closing, after a lengthy drive this team found the Giulia Quadrifoglio nothing less of: “riveting, intoxicating, and enthusiastically playful by any measure.”

It is very important to see a strong launch for a new vehicle, but how well a vehicle ages now proves to be perhaps even more crucial. A compact luxury SUV lifecycle currently runs anywhere from around five to seven years between thorough changes in design from the ground up. When the testing gang from MotorTrend first drove the Stelvio with the 2.0-liter engine three years ago, they were already very impressed. They were beaming after runs around the track and neighborhood with a turbo-four that delivered 280 hp and “scooted down the road like a sport sedan.” Since it had been a while since their last test, they took the 2020 Quadrifoglio edition straight out to the track, where they easily nailed down a 3.5-second zero to 60 launch...
