Alfa Romeo Giulia QV

Judging Questions

A bit of an Italian wolf in sheep’s clothing, the QV features a Ferrari-derived engine that is the most powerful ever in a series-production Alfa. The Quadrifoglio (cloverleaf) on each front fender, reserved for the marque’s most sporting models and celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, distinguishes the QV from other Giulias. Nimble handling, RWD and near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution make this mid-size sedan a genuine sports car, while its relative scarcity compared to competitive marques north of the Alps will always make an Alfa a rare sight on American roads. Lightweight carbon components are plentiful, while revised exterior lighting, plus new interior instrumentation and infotainment systems, update the classic Italian interior.
