the 2018 alfa romeo giulia quadrifoglio is a near-perfect sports sedan - trunk open
There is a lot of work to be done in the competition with Alpha Romeo giuliya Silivio, a brand that buyers are not familiar with in a market segment filled with wonderful works.
There is a concern about reliability.
It's hard to sell from the beginning.
Still, Alpha Romeo built the best car I 've ever driven.
First, let's determine what we are doing.
Giulia Quadrifoglio is based on Giulia I reviewed last week, but the performance dials are all tied to max.
It gets adjustable maglev, torque-
Vector differential, pair of carbon fiber drill bits, high
Performance Pirelli rubber and upgraded brebo brakes.
Most importantly, it has a Ferrari. derived, twin-turbocharged V-
Output 505 horsepower.
The interior is comfortable and the tight racing bucket can grab your hips and let you ride in front.
While nothing is too exciting, the quality of the material is up to first-class standards.
It is equipped with high quality speakers, CarPlay, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.
Thanks to the magnetic damper, riding is fully controlled and composed in daily use.
Not too loud.
In general, it is a traditional sports car;
Completely meek in daily driving with no hints of drama.
But open the DNA drive selection controller from N-Normal —
If it is dynamic or racial, QV will be active. The eight-
Speed auto ready to deliver snap-
Quickly move through the meaty metal dial behind the wheel.
The exhaust baffle opens to let more sonorous's engine notes pass through.
The throttle speeds up for maximum response.
Drop the hammer and you will bang more than 60 in 3 minutes.
In 8 seconds, the speed of the 191-mile/hour terminal to Giulia soared.
The steering is fast, but unlike most manufacturers, the Alpha doesn't make it more "sporty ".
"With sticky tires and excellent chassis, you really don't have to worry about finding the limits of Giulia on public roads.
This is not an impressive car for a car.
This is a masterpiece of any class.
V used to be the champion of the sports car class, razor
The precise and tame turn of the caddie does not match the fierce and calm personality of the giulians.
Cadillac wants to please you, Julia wants to bite you.
Minor complaints from standard Giulia remain.
The infotainment system can be a bit frustrating, asking you to negotiate CarPlay for nothing but rotating the dial.
When I press the "lock" or "trunk open" button on the key chain, it has the same problem, and Alpha says it may be the result of the low key chain battery.
But Quadrifoglio has a problem that normal Giulia does not have: severe brake failure.
Brake combination with poor calibrationby-
Wired software and racingFocus, carbon
Ceramic brakes let Giulia stop moving in frustration.
It's strange that it's hard to apply the right force, which means that you either always stop the car or don't slow down as fast as you think.
The more time you spend, the easier it will be, but the best option is not to get carbonceramic brakes.
Standard pads should be better.
The reliability problems experienced by other channels are even more worrying.
I have not experienced this but you should know what others have found out.
The test car of the car trend turns off at a red light and refuses to restart or turn to drive and requires a trailer.
Despite many attempts, the road and track were unable to complete a complete circuit without breaking in some way.
Jalopnik's car threw the throttle fault code and refused to speed up on the highway.
Long car and driver-
Term tester spent a whole month in the store for just five months of testing time and needed a new fuel pump and differential.
It's very rare for cars to crash in reviews, as manufacturers often take care to make sure their news fleet is in trouble --free.
While the trend of cars and drivers and cars later presented Giulia with awards, concerns linger.
As far as Alpha is concerned, it indicates an early notice
Model problems and work to correct them.
"The quality and reliability of our vehicles is essential [ce]
A spokesman for Alpha Romeo told CNBC: "For everyone who works at Alpha Romeo . ".
"Thanks to the feedback we get from dealers and customers, all of our models are getting better every year.
"We have been monitoring the quality of our products and we are actively looking for opportunities to improve our vehicles," he added . ".
"Today the giuliya sedan on the road represents the best product for Alpha Romeo to engineer, design and manufacture.
"If you worry for a long time
Quality, I recommend renting so that the car is always under warranty.
Giulia QV starts at $75,295.
The gorgeous red you see on our Giulia tester-
It's an option of $2,200.
Most colors are priced at $600 and there are many good options.
Just because it looks so good, I will buy awesome carbon fiber racing for $400.
Also, $1,200 can make you a driver
Assist with Giulia's daily driving ability, while $500 gives you the option to choose a better wheel than a basic wheel.
Ceramic brakes save you $8,000.
All in all, it's planned to cost $77,995 as long as you stick to the $600 color.
I won't buy these for a long time because I'm still worried about the quality issues that other stores have noticed.
I have never had any problems, though.
I really like Alpha Romeo Giulia siferlio.
I will sell all my stuff, nothing but ramen, live in a cabin and rent a room for three years.
It's really so good.
