The Alfa Romeo Giulia has picked up two awards at prestigious 41st annual Irish Car of the Year Awards 2018.
In one of the most competitive categories, the Alfa Romeo Giulia took home the gong for the Irish ‘Medium Car’ category, thanks to its driver focused package and accessible entry point. Beating off stiff competition from established players, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio also topped the ‘Performance Car’ category, testament that Alfa Romeo has remained true to its heritage and is still producing the best driver’s cars on sale today.
Developed by the best engineers, designers and stylists within FCA Group, the new Giulia embodies the core elements that have made Alfa Romeo one of the world’s best-loved automotive brands: distinctive Italian design; innovative powertrains, perfect weight distribution, unique technical solutions and the best weight-to-power ratio in its class.
This year’s awards were sponsored by Continental tyres and decided by a jury of 30 of the Irish media’s most influential online, broadcast and print journalists.
Paul Hunt, Managing Director FCA Ireland, commented; “For the entire Giulia range to be lauded at the most prestigious awards in the Irish calendar is really humbling. The Irish Car of the Year jury have recognised the passion and dedication that has been gone into making the Giulia and has made it into a car that can be chosen with both the head and the heart.”
The Alfa Romeo Giulia and Giulia Quadrifoglio are available to order now priced from £29,875 OTR for a Giulia 2.0-litre petrol and £61,595 OTR for the 2.9-litre V6 Quadrifoglio.
