Between the stolen images and the clumsiness, it seems clear that the new sedan series will be inspired by the new SUV from Biscione. With different stylistic items and equipment upgrade
that of Julia – Stelvioand perhaps more – a very important shift: Not only because the sedan Alfa Romeo It was released in 2016 and therefore has to be renewed, but above all because it will have to hit shape by 2027, when (barring exciting surprises) it will leave the scene. Because Biscione will only produce electric cars. But given the glamor of the market, having a sedan with thermal engines in the range remains an additional weapon. Jean-Francois Imbrato, No. 1 of Alfa Romeo, said that the Giulia and Stelvio are great products, and we are working on them, they will certainly be part of the novelties of 2023. As usual in these cases after the official teaser there are rumors, stolen photos and photos of tests with the car in the convincing version. Just as there is no shortage of counterfeit products that ultimately mislead believers.
How does it change
If the bodywork will remain unchanged, it can be fenders and headlights. The bumper strips (especially the front bumper) will be resumed. An approach referring to the Tonale approach, so as to create a family feeling designed to unite all Arese models. Thus, the trilobo is larger and less “softer”, but also new air intakes and revised exhausts. These changes could also allow for the introduction of thinner, sharper headlights. The graphics of the interior will certainly be updated, perhaps with new daytime running LEDs designed to recall the aesthetics of future Tonale projectors. So a luminous signature that would emphasize the high and low beams by visually separating them. A similar process can also be done in the back, where the light assemblies must maintain the current look, while proposing a new LED configuration and specific finishes.
As for the interior, photos and rumors of Carscops Suggest that for Julia there are several options on the table:It should arrive with an updated steering wheel and new transmission selector, excluding completely changing the style of the dashboard. The news in terms of information and entertainment is more than safe, starting with the 10.25-inch touch screen of the multimedia system that can adopt the Maserati Grecale operating system. Powertrain separation: In all likelihood, a hybrid variant will appear for the first time in the Giulia, which is necessary to reduce emissions in the homologation stage. But it will not be an add-on system, nor will it be a complete system: the Giulia Hybrid will almost certainly exploit 48V MHEV technology similar to that already in the Maserati range, with an electric generator responsible for energy recovery and starting the thermal engine. A small number of horsepower to power the 2.0 turbo petrol engine and 2.2 diesel four-cylinder unit is not excluded, provided that the latter does not leave the scene due to the decisions of the Stellantis group.
