The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a good car. This is a fact at this point, because just about every automotive publication on earth has showered it with their praises, with the latest being Popular Mechanics.
Popular Mechanics recently named the Giulia Quadrifoglio its favorite ‘Super Sedan’ in its annual ‘Automotive Excellence’ awards. The magazine’s panel of judges decide on its Automotive Excellence’ award recipients after driving a wide range of vehicles in a variety of segments and deciding which to be the best from an all-around standpoint.
“This car, we are happy to say, sets the new standard for super sedans,” said automotive editor at Popular Mechanics, Ezra Dyer. “The Alfa’s secret is that it’s always rewarding, even at sane speeds, and the best part is, if you can’t afford the flagship Quadrifoglio, the base Giulia — zero to 60 in 5.1 seconds — starts at less than $40,000.”
“To choose our Car Awards, the editors drive all the relevant class contenders over the course of the year, then pick the vehicle that we feel transcends the competition,” added Dyer. “We don’t subdivide into a thousand specific categories — each is intentionally broad, to encompass the maximum number of eligible vehicles. So if you win, it wasn’t easy.”
The Giulia Quadrifoglio is powered by a 505 horsepower twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine that sends power to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Prices start at $72,000 in the U.S.
