Auburn Hills’ Fiat Chrysler Automobiles today announced that its Alfa Romeo brand will introduce the 2020 Giulia and Stelvio models to the North American market this week during AutoMobility LA at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Both the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio boast new standard content, according to the automaker, including an enhanced premium interior, advanced safety features, a new 8.8-inch touchscreen display, and connectivity.
Giulia and Stelvio will begin to arrive in North American showrooms before the end of 2019. Giulia’s MSRP starts at $40,640 including a $1,295 destination charge. Giulia Quadrifoglio starts at $76,040. Stelvio starts at $42,640 including the destination charge. Stelvio Quadrifoglio opens at $82,040 including a $1,595 destination charge.
“The Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stevlio receive significant technology, infotainment, and interior enhancements for the 2020 model year,” says Tim Kuniskis, global head of Alfa Romeo and head of Dodge, SRT, Chrysler, and FIAT passenger cars for FCA North America. “Alfa Romeo’s unrivaled driving experience is now elevated by delivering key premium features requested by our current and future customers.”
At the forefront of the interior is a new center console, which has an updated design featuring a machined-knurled aluminum-look rotary dial, upgraded knob materials and increased storage capacity. A new Italian flag badge at the base of the shifter signifies the country from which these vehicles were born, designed, and crafted. A new leather-wrapped shifter and a race-inspired steering wheel for all Giulia and Stelvio models feature Alfa Romeo’s characteristic steering wheel-mounted push-button start. Larger cup holders in the Giulia plus a new phone storage area with available wireless charging, round out the interior upgrades.
New for 2020 is a standard 8.8-inch center touchscreen display offering a selection of interactive widgets and a horizontal scroll layout that provides additional personalization options and enhanced interactivity and visibility. New performance pages allow drivers to track key performance metrics while digital HVAC and other controls enhance functionality. Drivers and passengers can customize the homepage by selecting their tailored layout. Reconfigurable widgets provide quick and easy access to key functions such as radio, media, smartphone, navigation, and climate control. A 12-month trial of SiriusXM Radio now is standard on all models.
The standard 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) instrument cluster screen is redesigned to offer more information in an easy-to-read format with a new layout and improved graphics designed to incorporate advance driver assistance system (ADAS) and level II autonomous driving functions. The system also includes updated vehicle information pages providing real-time data.
The 2020 Giulia and Stelvio mark the debut of a full set of available ADAS functions including level II autonomous capability enabling the vehicle to control acceleration, braking, and steering – providing the driver with a balance between driving pleasure and autonomous control.
