Italy - Alfa Romeo today announced details on the 2021 Giulia and Stelvio models, which are currently arriving at North American showrooms.

Backed by 110 years of Alfa Romeo heritage, the 2021 Giulia and Stelvio feature more standard equipment and a simplified model lineup, including the return of the iconic Sprint nameplate. Both vehicles deliver seductive Italian styling, state-of-the-art technology and unsurpassed value, performance and driving dynamics.

Crafted at the Cassino plant in Italy, the award-winning Giulia and Stelvio are testaments to Alfa Romeo’s superb balance of engineering and emotion.

Alfa Romeo has simplified the Giulia and Stelvio model lineups and restructured optional content packages, delivering more performance and value. Available in four trims for the 2021 model year, versus seven for the 2020 model year, the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio lineups include the Sprint, Ti, Ti Sport and Quadrifoglio. Further, with many popular options made standard, the number of available content packages has been significantly reduced, making it easier for customers to build their Alfa Romeo.

With its near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the Giulia sets the benchmark for performance sedans. Embodying Alfa Romeo’s la meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion) spirit and offering race-inspired performance with class-leading, standard 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque, the Giulia delivers 0-60 mph in as quick as 5.1 seconds and a top speed of 149 mph. With a combination of advanced technologies, seductive Italian style, standard carbon fiber driveshaft and available Alfa Q4 all-wheel-drive (AWD) system, the Giulia provides an exhilarating driving experience in the premium midsize sedan segment.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio raises the bar for performance SUVs, bringing Giulia’s proven performance formula to the premium midsize utility segment. Named after one of the world’s greatest driving roads, the Stelvio Pass, the 2021 Stelvio delivers performance, design and technology in an SUV that only Alfa Romeo could create. The Stelvio lineup is a testament to Alfa Romeo’s perfect balance of engineering and emotion. Infused with Italian passion, artisanship and innovation, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is designed for driving enthusiasts to conquer the road.

For 2021, four new exterior colors are available for Giulia and Stelvio:

  • Ocra GT Junior
  • Rosso GTA
  • Rosso Villa d'Este
  • Verde Montreal

Harkening back to the Bertone-designed 1954 Giulietta Sprint, the first Sprint nameplate to appear on an Alfa Romeo, and to the 1965 Giulia Sprint GTA, arguably the most recognized example of the nameplate, the Sprint name holds a rich and longstanding history for the brand, making this a fitting return on the 2021 Giulia and Stelvio.

As entry points to their lineups, the 2021 Giulia Sprint and 2021 Stelvio Sprint offer class-leading levels of standard equipment unmatched by competitors from Europe and Asia. The Sprint trims’ long list of standard equipment includes a 280-horsepower turbocharged engine, 8-speed automatic transmission, bi-xenon headlamps, Brembo front brakes, leather seating, 10-way power front seats, remote start, keyless entry, 8.8-inch multi-touch display, Forward Collision Warning with Full-Speed Stop, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and SiriusXM radio. A premium leather-wrapped shifter and a race-inspired steering wheel for all Sprint trims feature Alfa Romeo’s characteristic steering-wheel-mounted push-button start. Standard laminated glass helps improve both cabin ambience and the overall driving experience.

Inside every 2021 Giulia and Stelvio lies a refined center console featuring a machine-knurled aluminum-look rotary dial, premium knob materials and ample storage capacity. An Italian flag badge at the base of the shifter signifies the country from which these vehicles were born, designed and crafted. Large cup holders in the Giulia, plus a phone storage area with available wireless charging, round out the upscale environment.

Alfa Q4 AWD is standard on Stelvio Ti, Ti Sport and Quadrifoglio; $2,000 premium on Giulia Sprint, Ti, Ti Sport and Stelvio Sprint.
