2018 Alfa Romeo 4C

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 13:46:00 +0000

(image) Consider the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C as a budget super car. Like Ferraris and Lamborghinis, it's a carbon-fiber miracle of weight savings, with room for only two and (weekend) luggage. It prioritizes performance above all else, but at a fraction of what the bigger guys cost. For the low price, it asks for enormous compromises. We rate the...

2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 13:43:00 +0000

(image) The 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia is a luxury four-door sedan that handles like a sports car. Although it isn’t quite the bullseye that the Italian automaker might need, the Giulia compact sports sedan is brimming con brio, a delight to drive in even its humblest form, and sells for a fair price, too. We rate it at 7.4 out of 10. We...

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 13:18:00 +0000

(image) The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio couldn't have arrived soon enough for the fledgling luxury brand. It's the first SUV from the Italian luxury automaker and the one that buyers are most likely to see on the streets, ahead of the Giulia sedan and 4C sports car. Alfa Romeo blends old-world charm with the New World’s obsession with...

FCA ups destination charge on Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, and Ram new cars

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 11:00:00 +0000

(image) It will cost consumers $250 more to buy some FCA cars, trucks, and SUVs, even if the advertised price looks the same. The Italian-American automaker discretely raised its mandatory destination charges across all its brands. The destination charge is a number not normally included in a vehicle's advertised price, but rather tacked onto the...

Alfa Romeo Giulia

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 22:17:00 +0000

(image) The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a compact sport sedan aimed at the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Audi A4, and Cadillac ATS. Giulia is an old name for Alfa Romeo, reaching all the way back into the 1960s. The current model is a four-door sedan and the first meaningful step for the automaker to return to the U.S. The biggest changes for 2018 include...

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 22:13:00 +0000

(image) The stylish, decidedly road-oriented Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the Italian automaker's first crossover SUV. With the Stelvio, Alfa brings a serious dose of style and passion into the mid-size, luxury crossover niche, where many entries have relied on utility as their calling card. As a luxury SUV, the Stelvio competes in the most difficult automotive...

Alfa Romeo 4C

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 18:48:00 +0000

(image) The Alfa Romeo 4C is the Italian automaker's sports car. It comes in targa-roof Spider and coupe versions, and seats two. The 4C signaled the automaker's first feet back into the U.S. after a hiatus for more than 10 years. It sports a turbo-4 and a dual-clutch automatic transmission. It's hardly advanced: the 4C skips power steering, many creature...

2018 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio: Compare Cars

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 18:14:00 +0000

(image) Sporty and crossover SUV used to go together like oil and water. That’s no longer the case, and luckily for buyers the engineers and designers at Mazda and Alfa Romeo understand that a commanding view out, utility for cargo and gear, all-weather traction, and fun-to-drive aren’t mutually exclusive terms. Enter the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and...

What's New for 2018: Alfa Romeo

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 17:17:00 +0000

(image) After more than two decades of teasing, Alfa Romeo is back in the U.S.—and with a lineup of cars designed for the real world, not just well-heeled folks looking for a track-day toy. The Alfa Romeo Giulia arrived late in the 2017 model year and sees some worthwhile changes for 2018, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. More importantly...

IIHS crashes 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia, names it a Top Safety Pick+

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 14:00:00 +0000

(image) The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia compact sports sedan is more than just a pretty face, according to the IIHS. The insurance industry-funded crash-testers recently subjected the 2017 Giulia to their full barrage of tests and came away impressed enough to grant the Top Safety Pick+ award. When properly equipped with optional collision-avoidance tech and...

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio first drive

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 04:01:00 +0000

(image) Alfa Romeo may be on the comeback trail, but so far it’s been missing part of the map. Alfa relaunched here in 2015 with the fantastic 4C sports car. Next came the Giulia sports sedan. See what’s missing? If you said crossover SUV, give yourself a gold star and stop emailing them. The Alfa SUV is here, and we’re ready for a first...

2017 Alfa Romeo 4C

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 15:40:00 +0000

(image) The Alfa Romeo 4C is as close to a budget supercar as most of us will ever get. Its mid-engine layout, carbon-fiber body, turbo-4, and dual-clutch automatic work in concert and unencumbered by weight or unnecessary luxuries. Its 5.8 overall rating is a tale of two cars: a high-performance, featherweight fighter; and a bare-bones...

(image) The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is a compact four­-door sedan aimed at the BMW 3-Series, and the Quadrifoglio version is a BMW M3 fighter.

Wed, 10 May 2017 16:24:00 +0000

(image) The first SUV in Alfa Romeo's lineup comes with a modest price premium compared to its direct rivals—but there's more to this story than just dollars. The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio will list from $42,990 when it goes on sale by the end of this summer. That puts it around $1,000 more than rivals like the 2017 BMW X3 xDrive ($42,050), 2017...
