Midrand, South Africa – The Alfa Romeo Giulia, recently launched in South Africa, has been named a ‘Game Changer’ at the prestigious UK Autocar Awards as it has signalled ‘a transformation for one of the most loved names in motoring’.
Mark Tisshaw, Editor of Autocar, commented: “This is not only the most competitive Alfa Romeo saloon since the last Giulia was launched more than half a century ago but, crucially for anyone with Alfisti blood lurking in their veins, it’s the most likeable, too. With its incredible performance and exciting handling, the Giulia is everything you’d want an Alfa Romeo to be.”
Developed by the best engineers, designers and stylists within FCA, the new Giulia embodies the core elements that have made Alfa Romeo one of the world’s best-loved automotive brands: Distinctive Italian design; innovative powertrains, perfect weight distribution, unique technical solutions and the best power to weight ratio.
Autocar says that its ‘Game Changers’ are cars that ‘bring new, higher standards to their classes, or because they defy conventions to benefit buyers.’ Of the Giulia, Autocar says: “The Giulia is a riveting, idiosyncratic and striking entrant into a class usually defined by an understated brand of superiority.”
All Alfa Romeo Giulia models sold in South Africa feature a 3 year/100,000km warranty and 6 year/100,000km maintenance plan.
