“The Art of Seduction” as Alfa Romeo calls it, is what the 2020 Giulia really is. It’s stylish on the inside, and on the outside, more so. Everything from the squinted LED headlights to the dual exhaust pipes at the back, is so enticing you wouldn’t be able to stop yourself from wanting to get inside it, and when you do, the real fun begins.

Expert Review

6.5

Overall Rating


The 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia derives power from a not-so-intimidating 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine. But that engine is turbocharged, which helps it produce 280 hp and 306 lb.-ft. torque. All that power helps this beautifully balanced Alfa Romeo tackle curves better than you-know-who can handle mood swings.

However, it’s not everyday you can find a person with good looks who also cooks and cleans, and that is the reality of the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia. At a price of $38,545, the Giulia offers better performance than the Lexus ES 350, but fails to match the overall package that the BMW 330i is.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Features

5.5/10

The Alfa Romeo Giulia for the year 2020 will be available in the same six variants, Giulia, Giulia Sport, Ti, Ti Lusso, Ti Sport and Ti Sport Carbon, as last year. However, unlike last year’s models, standard on the 2020 Giulia is an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit across the range.

Also standard is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine and a rear-wheel drive system. The other all-wheel drive unit is optional, and the all-wheel driven variants cost $2,000 over the rear-wheel driven ones. Other than that, a few safety features have also been made standard.

The Giulia Ti Sport is the most logical choice in the line of Giulia variants. For best driving experience, pair your Giulia Ti Sport with the Driver Assist Static with Front Sensors Package and the Cold Weather Package. While the former adds several necessary safety features, the latter equips this Alfa Romeo with heated seats and steering wheel.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Engine and Performance

The sexy, suave 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine. Rated at 280 hp and 306 lb.-ft. torque, the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine sends power to the rear wheels or all the wheel of this sporty sedan. Ensuring that power is smoothly transmitted from the engine to the wheels is an eight-speed automatic transmission sourced from ZF.

Further helping this sedan drive the way it looks are three different driving mode settings, Dynamic, Natural and Advanced Efficiency. These modes accordingly alter feel and feedback of the car to match the driver’s demands.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia and BMW 330i have more in common than just a zf sourced transmission. However, it’s the Lexus ES 350 that gets the biggest engine that also makes most power.

How fast is the Alfa Romeo Giulia?

The 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia gets a rear-wheel drive unit as standard. While the other all-wheel drive system remains optional. Nonetheless, even the all-wheel drive unit is biased towards the rear wheels, which means the engine sends power to the rear wheels at most times. The smooth ZF eight-speed automatic transmission shifts quickly to ensure power is always plenty throughout the range.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia hits 0-60 in less than 6 sec

Consequently, the Alfa Romeo giulia with its well-balanced chassis, silky-smooth transmission and 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that favors the rear wheels, accelerates as if it were its second nature.

While the BMW 330i and Alfa Romeo Giulia get more or less similar specifications, the latter due to its lighter body is relatively faster.

What about the braking performance of the Alfa Romeo Giulia?

The brakes on the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia are simply top-quality. The standard four piston-callipers Brembo brakes work without fade to offer brilliant feedback for those emergency braking scenarios.

2020 Alfa Romeo Guilia Sedan Has Front Rotor Brake is 12.5 in.

The Guilia does tend to steer sideways while going down hard on the pedal. Though most wouldn’t be bothered by it as it adds to this Alfa Romeo’s playful character.

The hefty BMW 330i might suffer a bit while accelerating due to its weight, but it is the quickest of the lot to come to a halt.

What about its driving dynamics?

The three unique drive-mode settings on the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia, Dynamic, Natural, and Advanced Efficiency, quite literally demonstrate this sedan’s driving DNA. The various modes alter transmission, steering response, and feel from the engine accordingly. Regardless of the choice of drive-mode, Guilia feels nimble and eager all the time.

On the track, Giulia is capable enough to satisfy any enthusiast. Switching to Dynamic mode makes the gearbox more responsive and the steering feels even more perfectly weighted. The tires clearly communicate with the driver’s inputs and respond aggressively, while the well-balanced chassis and stiff suspension setup keep body roll well under control. The car returns great feedback in general and the toughest of corners feel like a walk in the park. But the real fun is experienced in the rear-wheel driven Giulia wherein the rear wheels are always ready to steer sideways despite traction control which cannot be switched off.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia comes with three unique drive-mode

As a city cruiser, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is an equally comfortable sedan. The standard suspension, though tuned to be on the stiffer side, iron out most bumps. With perfectly timed shifts from the eight-speed automatic and heaps of peak low-end torque, driving this sedan sedately around country lengths feels quick and aggressive still. Turns out spirited driving is this Alfa Romeo’s Natural identity. The only time the Giulia doesn’t feel as feisty is when you slot it in Advanced Efficiency mode, which as the name suggests favors efficiency over extremity.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Fuel Economy

Considering the 2020 Giulia’s 280 hp engine, this sports sedan is fairly economical. The ZF automatic reduces fuel consumption by keeping the revs down while cruising. Also, the transmission sends power mostly to the rear wheels even in the all-wheel drive variant. Overall, Giulia's MPG ratings are pretty competitive considering its sporty nature.

7.5/10

The level of comfort on the inside of this sporty sedan is very much at par with its performance. The standard front seats are ten-ways power adjustable, and well-bolstered to provide plenty of comfort and support. However, the optional sports seats, standard on the Ti and Ti Lusso variants, offer an even higher level of comfort with additional four-way adjustments.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Dashboard 

Everything from the driving position to the style of the seats favor the driver, but not at the expense of other occupants. Even the second row seats are fairly relaxing over long journeys. The availability of headroom is slightly compromised due to the sloping roof, but legroom is decent. The real challenge though is getting in and out of the second row as the doors make up for a rather small entrance.

Other than that, the Alfa Romeo Giulia clearly demonstrates its Italian characteristics. The cabins is elegantly styled with soft-touch plastics, fine leather and genuine wood or textured metallic trim. Visibility from inside the cabin is also excellent, except for slight impediment around the thick B pillars.

For the year 2020, Alfa Romeo finally got rid of their 6.5-inch and 8.8-inch non-touch infotainment units and replaced them with one 8.8-inch touchscreen as standard across the range. This new 8.8-inch touchscreen features the following tech:

  • AM/FM
  • Bluetooth
  • Navigation
  • SiriusXM with 1-year radio subscription

Creature comforts on offer in the Alfa Romeo Giulia

In order to make the 2020 Giulia as user friendly as possible, this Alfa Romeo has been equipped with the following comfort features:

  • Heated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Automatic high beam
  • Front/rear park assist
  • Infrared windshield

What about utility?

The 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia is a short car. Thereby, it suffers a bit when it comes to freeing up space inside the cabin. Still,

There’s no denying the fact that the Alfa Romeo Giulia is one of the most stunningly beautiful cars in the market. It is fast, it is comfortable, but more than any of those things, it is one hell of a looker. You simply cannot look at this sedan and not be aroused by its beautifully flowing lines and enticing curves.

At the front, the squinting headlights, that run deep into the fenders, surround Alfa’s shield grille. While at the sides, the relatively tall sidewalls with the standard 17-inch wheels add to the sporty character of this sedan.

The standard 17-inch wheels add to the sporty character of this sedan.

The rear design has been all the more elegantly molded. While the LED taillights enhance gracefulness, the bold twin-exhaust tailpipes on either side are simply seductive to look at. Even though the front and rear fascias differ, as do a lot of styling elements, as you move up the trim ladder, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is one of the most handsome cars nonetheless.

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Competition

Alfa Romeo Giulia vs. BMW 330i

The Alfa Romeo Giulia and the BMW 330i have a lot in common. Both these sedans are significantly sporty courtesy their turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-fours and eight-speed automatic transmissions from ZF. However, at 280 hp, Giulia is more powerful than the 255 hp Bimmer. Also the latter is heavier than the Giulia. Nonetheless, as an overall package the BMW 330i overshadows the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Despite being heftier and less powerful, the 330i is only minutely slower than the Giulia. At the same it offers way more practicality with its significantly larger boot and bigger fuel tank.

2020 BMW 330i

Alfa Romeo Giulia vs. Lexus ES 350

The Lexus ES 350 really impresses on paper, but the reality is not quite the same. Even though the Alfa Romeo Giulia is less powerful, it way faster than the Lexus ES 350. Not to mention the fact that it is also cheaper. To top it all off, the way this Giulia looks is reason enough to consider it over the ES 350.

2020 Lexus ES 350

2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia Final Verdict

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is many things. Its sharp steering, strong engine, composed handling and extreme good-looks, all make it a competent car. But in reality, this Alfa Romeo is slightly overrated. Except for the way it performs it hardly has anything to offer. There are several other sedans that perform just as good as the Giulia, if not more, without compromising on other aspects of being an overall package.

"Why do we need to turn off the auto stop feature every single time"

Well I believe its important for any car to have enough visibility even if its loaded with features serving the same purpose. Thankfully our Giulia doesn't fail there and offers a decent amount of visibility on all 4 sides. Not to mention, the rest of the driving dynamics are also perfect. What I don't like is the auto stop feature which helps to save fuel. There should be an option to turn it off...

"Is Italian and looks like one"

Refined engine and paddle shifters, everything I wanted in a car and I must say I got a more than that. Giulia being an Italian does justify the nametag by peerless looks inside out.

"Alfa's step towards excellence but still have a long way to go"

I won't say this is the best car from Alfa but surely an impressive step. It drives fantastic but asks some time to get used to a little different driving dynamics. It used to stumble when I used to let go off the throttle( or maybe it still does) and it took me roughly 1500 miles to be able to get used to it. Now it doesn't feel like an issue or as prominent as it used to.

"Makes sense on highways"

Well the actual sense of money spend on the car makes sense when I drive on highway rather than manuevering on streets and back lanes. The speedo seems to be asking more when driving on interstates and it never runs out of breath.

"Nurburgring's fastest 5 seater"

Best in class power, handling and transmission, Giulia doesn't leave anything behind, or does it?
