Che Figata! Alfa Romeo Shows 2024 Lineup

The brand from Italy rolls into the next model year with a trio of models under its finely crafted leather belt, starting with the new Tonale and followed by the Giulia sedan plus Stelvio crossover. Fresh off the line are Competizione variants of the latter two, in addition to trims marking a centenary date.

Let’s start with the Stelvio. As Alfa celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Quadrifoglio performance brand, the plan is to build – you guessed it – a hundred copies of the limited-edition 100th Anniversary Quadrifoglio trim. Look for touches like unique wheels, carbon fiber mirror caps, and a dark grille. It’s not all paint and wallpaper, as Quadrifoglio models also upgrade the limited-slip differential from standard to operate mechanically instead of with what’s technically traction control wizardry. 

The new Competizione is based on a Veloce trim, meaning it’ll be powered by the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine delivering 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque, not the Quad’s 505-horse twin-turbo monster. Alfa adds active suspension gubbins here, along with the likes of a banging stereo system and extra badging. It is priced at $55,825 plus destination. All trims get fresh exterior lighting and a new digital instrument panel.

Prefer a sedan? Me, too. The slick Giulia model gets similar trim updates as the Stelvio, bringing a 100th Anniversary Giulia Quadrifoglio option and a Competizione which is based on the Veloce. Both those trims have upgrades that essentially parallel the same-name trims on Stelvio. Look for the Giulia Competizione to be priced at $51,520 plus destination for a rear-wheel drive car; add two grand to yer budget for all-wheel drive. It also gets new lights and a new gauge cluster.

Finally, we have the Tonale, offered as a plug-in hybrid that tag teams a 1.3L turbocharged four-banger and electric motor. Stated output is 285 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to a 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery, it does have an all-electric range of about 30 miles, suitable for wide swaths of city-dwelling Americans whose commutes are well within that number. There will be three trims: Sprint, Ti, and Veloce. 

For those with inquiring minds, we will tell you that Alfa Romeo sold 12,845 vehicles in this country last year, roughly split evenly between Stelvio and Giulia.

    LOL... the number of comments here will be far higher than the actual US Sales of all these models put together. If they are not zero (a prudent decision, not to bring them here and bleed millions and millions of $)

    Saw a black Giulia quad 3-4 years ago, looked good, haven't seen many since. Saw a stelvio the other day with a headlight out, which is half the face of the car.

  • Lou_BC While we discuss Chinese cars, Chinese politics, and Chinese global desires, I'm looking at TTAC and Google display advertising for Chinese tires. They have nukes aimed at us but their money and products are acceptable to consumers and business?
  • TheTireWhisperer And a thankful Memorial day to all.
  • Kwik_Shift_Pro4X Take some time today to realize that virtually zero soldiers had died defending your border.
  • Tassos As somebody who is NOT a stupid fanatic about EVs one way or the other:No manufacturer has built a "Better Tesla" EV yet. Most have tried, we wait for TOyota only (last hope for the Tesla haters)UNLESS a DIRT CHEAP Model 2 comes along (will never happen in the next 2 or 3 years), Do NOT expect that 7% to go to even 10%, let alone the ... 30% clueless Idiot Joe Biden voters expect. If anything, PLUG INS and HYBRIDS may, in the SHORT term, bring the 7% down.
