The new Giulia Veloce debuts an exclusive 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, partnered with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel-drive. The four-cylinder engine is made entirely of aluminium, generating 280 hp and a maximum torque of 295 lb-ft at 2,250 rpm, taking it from zero to 62 mph in just 5.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 149 mph. In addition to the MultiAir electro-hydraulic valve activation system, it also features a “2-in-1” turbocharger system and direct injection, with 200-bar pressure. Made in the factory at Termoli, Italy, this new engine returns 46.3 mpg on the combined cycle and emits just 141g/km CO2, delivering a responsive yet efficient drive.
Standard equipment on the Veloce includes front & rear parking sensors, headlamp washers and upgraded braking system with larger diameter front and rear brake discs, on top of the standard dual-zone climate control, Alfa DNA driving mode selector and 8.8-inch Alfa Connect infotainment system. Achieving a five-star Euro NCAP rating and 98 per cent score for passenger safety, all models in the Giulia range includes Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian recognition, Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Integrated Braking System (IBS) and cruise control with speed limiter.
