Absent from the United States market for decades, we were thrilled when Alfa Romeo returned to the states with the 2014 debut of mid-engined 4C sports car. The Giulia sedan and the Stelvio crossover followed not far behind, offering the same classic Italian style and unfettered driving enjoyment that defined the brand in its domestic heyday. The high-performance Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio models offer even sharper reflexes and quicker acceleration. We love Alfas for their unabashedly Italian design, but unfortunately they also suffer from unabashedly poor reliability: the Giulia Quadrifoglio we had for a 40,000-mile test broke our hearts with its dreadful record of repairs. Currently a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Alfa Romeo has a pair of new models waiting in the wings: the Tonale compact crossover and the GTV sports coupe.
Like many great things, the Giulia is flawed, but its hot-blooded styling and fun-loving chassis easily outweigh its faults.
Despite its flaws, the Giulia Quadrifoglio excels in its quest to dominate its sports sedan rivals with racy styling, throaty exhaust sounds, and sharp handling.
Alfa Romeo will revive the legendary GTV nameplate with its upcoming sports coupe that is expected to deliver a seductive design and sublime driving characteristics.
In a world of bland SUVs, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a spicy Italian meatball in a Ferragamo suit, but it comes with a tight cargo area and untested reliability.
With a drop-dead gorgeous design and riotous driving experience, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio feels like the compact crossover Ferrari never made.
With seductive Italian styling and a potential plug-in-hybrid powertrain, the Tonale could be a compelling subcompact luxury crossover.
This Spider is a sexy, mid-engined Italian exotic carved down to affordable scale, and its cloth targa top lets the driver and one lucky passenger feel the wind in their hair.
Alfa Romeo's triumphant return to North America has not been without stumbles, but the Giulia is absolute proof that the legendary performance brand can deliver the goods.
Alfa Romeo may be unfamiliar to many Americans, but its beautifully curved and brutally powerful Giulia Quadrifoglio is a kick-ass way to kick-start awareness.
Forged from the fires of Italy and sent overseas to satiate the appetites of crossover-crazed Americans, the Stelvio manages to be both fascinating to behold and entertaining to drive.
Named after a famous pass in the Italian Alps, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is perfect for carving up canyons—or racetracks.
Leading Alfa Romeo’s charge back into the United States‚ to be followed by more mainstream models by 2010‚ is the achingly gorgeous 8C.
