Just got back from a trip to the US and though people might like to see these photos of the Giulia from the Philadelphia Auto Show earlier this month. Hope it doesn't put anyone off their lunch; it really is somehow both bland and hideous at the same time. They were telling people it would be available this year, and handing out a nice brochure. I also took a couple of snaps of the Mazda 124.

Stunning car. The Alfa, that is.

What no fog lights? :ermm:



Thanks for the pics, btw :biglaugh:
Thats a relief, it'll stop people driving around with them constantly switched on. They should be made illegal on all cars.

Totally agree! Or at least somehow made to work ONLY when it's foggy or in HEAVY rain!

And while we're at it, ban those pesky daylight running LEDs that some people rely on, and cos they have them on at dusk, forget to turn their proper lights on :furious:

..guys it's 2016. Cars have running lights in daylight to show that they're active.. get over it..!! :biglaugh:

The Giulia probably isn't going to be the prettiest alfa of all time, but i reckon it'll still look good in the flesh :)

Well I was really hoping it would look better in the flesh, and it does, but it's still an ugly and oddly-proportioned thing. Like someone described a 3 series over the phone. Though that doesn't explain the Ford Edsel front end. Ah well, some of the detailing is nice, eg the "alfa romeo" script on the lights which could have been tacky but actually looks quite classy. And that blue colour is stunning. So there's that.

I saw the Giulia at the DC Auto Show. Personally I think it's a beautiful car, even if you can see a bit of BMW in the proportion. Regardless, it stood head and shoulders above plenty other cars. I think they got the look right for the market positioning of the car. BUT it was tucked away, there were no brochures, no video of the car in action on a video wall, you couldn't sit in it... the worst being - for an Alfista - the car was right in front of me, and I couldn't do a damn thing to hear the engine. Honestly, it really felt like the car shown was one of the prototypes.
