The team at CarLease UK enjoyed looking around this luxury beauty, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Saloon 2.9 V6 BiTurbo Quadrifoglio 4dr Auto (browse deals!) With a list price of circa £50,000 plus VAT, this is very much the answer to a BMW M3, an Audi RS4 and the Mercedes C63. Some very stiff-competition!
Backed with Italian luxury and competence (i.e. Ferrari), this 8 speed 2.9 BiTurbo petrol engine will offer just over 500ps propelling you to 62mph in under 4 seconds. A combined MPG of circa 35 means this isn’t going to save you money on fuel bills but at least it is not completely unusable. A P11d of £61,140.00 and CO2 of 189g/km means this isn’t a number on the company car list!
From a specification perspective, the standard motor has some nice touches and features – 19” Ultralight alloys, black aluminium brake callipers, front/rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, rear view camera, connect nav (8.8” screen), bi-xenon lights, climate control, ambient interior lighting and alcantara/leather.
This car is almost certainly going to be the allure for most younger drivers who want a high-performance leasing deal. However, for the more sensible out there, the 2.2 JTDM-2 diesel might be more practical for you. With a number of spec ranges (the Super, Tecnica and Speciale) you might be able to find yourself an alterantive to a BMW 320d, Mercedes C220d or an Audi A4 2.0TDI saloon.
So would you really spend the money on the Alfa Romeo?
