Navigating options and trim levels of a vehicle can be difficult when an automaker gets a little too overzealous with variants of a vehicle. It also makes manufacturing a bit of a nightmare as the production lines have to account for dozens of different options one more than a few trim levels. One or both of those reasons are likely why Alfa Romeo has announced it has trimmed the number of trim levels for the 2021 Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV.
For 2021, Alfa Romeo will offer four trim levels: Sprint, Ti, Ti Sport, and the sportiest version, Quadrifoglio. The base Sprint model is named in honor of the 1954 Giulietta Sprint. As for what's available on the rebranded entry-level Stelvio and Giulia, Alfa notes both vehicles will receive the same 280-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that's in the current models, plus an 8.8-inch infotainment display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, Brembo front brakes, leather seats, and forward collision warning with full-speed stop.
Further consolidating its lineup, Alfa has also taken two driver assistance packages and combined them into one, called Active Assist I. The Ti models of both Stelvio and Giulia also get a standard dual-pane sunroof. The Ti Sport now receives a limited-slip differential, dark exhaust, sport rear diffuser, and 20-inch aluminum wheels. The Quadrifoglio's standard features and powerful 505-hp twin-turbo V-6 are unchanged.
Four new colors are available: Ocra GT Junior, Rosso GTA, Rosso Villa d'Este, and the stunning Verde Montreal.
The Giulia's base model, the Sprint, now starts at $40,745, a $350 increase from the base 2020 Giulia, while the top Quadrifoglio model is priced at $76,345. All-wheel drive costs $2000 extra on all trim levels but the Quadrifoglio, on which it's standard.
The Stelvio starts at $42,745, only a $50 increase from the 2020 model, and the top Quadrifoglio costs $82,345. All-wheel drive costs $2000 extra on the Stelvio Sprint and is standard on the other trim levels.
Adding AWD to any of the Giulia trims and Stelvio Sprint will cost an additional $2000. The rest of the Stelvio trim levels offer all-wheel-drive standard. Alfa Romeo says the 2021 Giulia and Stelvio are currently arriving in North American showrooms.
