The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio were tweaked for the 2020 model l. The changes make both models safer, more stylish, and quite a bit louder.
Nothing has really been done to the engine. It still remains its 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 with 503 hp (375 kW) and 600 Nm of torque but you now have the option of a dual-mode titanium Akrapovic exhaust system with carbon fibre tailpipes.
Both high-performance models come with slightly updated LED taillights featuring burnished lens along with a glossy black look for the exterior badges.
The carbon fibre-style trim on the steering wheel and gear selector has been replaced with leather with stitching, plus adding the option of red or green seatbelts. Perforated leather upholstery is now optional, too.
There is now a new infotainment system featuring an 8.8-inch touchscreen with connected services and a new interface.
The tech upgrades come courtesy of a new Bosch-developed system that offers Level 2 autonomous features such as Traffic Jam Assist and Highway Assist, Lane Keep Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Cruise Control, Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Control, and Driver Attention Assist.
Both models continue to feature standard Alfa Active Torque Vectoring system and eight-speed automatic transmission. As before, the driving experience is enhanced by features such as the Alfa Active Suspension, Alfa DNA Pro selector with Race mode and Alfa Active Aero splitter on the Giulia. These systems are all coordinated in real time by the Alfa Chassis Domain Control (CDC) unit.
Finally, there are new colors available, divided up into Competizione, Metal, Solid and Classic ranges. The Classic range, as the name suggests, recalls colors used on some classic Alfa Romeos and includes the colors 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra, and Montreal Green.
