Currently reading: Alfa Romeo Giulia gets new options and price drop
New alloys and smartphone mirroring added to the Giulia options list, while mid-range Tecnica models get a £1000 price drop

The Alfa Romeo Giulia's options list has been expanded and a £1000 price drop applied to mid-range Tecnica models to coincide with the 67 numberplate change.

This comes less than a year after the first examples of the BMW 3 Series-rivalling executive saloon were delivered to customers.

The options, which are available as of now, include 18in five-spoke diamond-cut alloys on all trims except for the entry-level Giulia and 19ins exclusive to the hot Veloce.

In addition, twin tail-pipes (£150) are now available on the petrol Super model and the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring functions are available with all specifications for £250.

The significant price drop applied to Tecnica trim, which is available with only a 2.2-litre diesel engine, has brought P11D values down to £30,840 and £32,040 respectively for the 150hp and 180hp variants.

Tecnica is aimed at company car drivers, with standard kit including electric seats, a climate pack, privacy glass and a driver assistance pack that includes all-round parking sensors and a rear-view camera.

Alfa Romeo claims that the Tecnica now "offers the lowest whole life cost in its class, benefitting from a low P11D value, high residual values, low maintenance costs and excellent fuel efficiency".

The Giulia (not including the Quadrifoglio) has also been added to Alfa Romeo's Test Me Contribution scheme, joining the 4C, Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Mito, in which private buyers will be offered a £2000 discount if they take a test drive and place an order by 30 September.

Alfa Romeo and the Giulia name is back, and returned in the shape of a saloon that is determined to disrupt the top order - watch out BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz and Audi

My 280 Veloce is an excellent

My 280 Veloce is an excellent car with no issues to date. Would highly recommend over class rivals, most of which I've owned or tested. Rarity makes it more appealing surely..

Price drop?

In its first year of production? That does not feel good. FCA panicking?

Billion buck gamble....

C'mon FCA. What's the point of spending this money on the Giulia/Stelvio platform and screw it up through poor QA and manufacturing.  They are making JLR look like NASA...........

Re: Billion buck gamble

The new alfa plant is the most modern car factory in the world. Remember Fiat Pioneered the use of robots in car plants. That’s why other cars makers including JLR still buy Fiat  robots. Just do a YouTube search to find out more.
