The return of a famous Italian brand begins with a superb sports sedan.

Detroit, Michigan

For years we heard rumors that Alfa Romeo, storied Italian maker of beautiful, emotional cars, would return to the U.S. market Alfa stuck its tenterhooks into our market with the ultra-limited 8C supercar and the fantastic, yet flawed, 4C mid-engine sports car. Now, though, Alfa is here for real, with a new sedan aimed right at the best from Germany.

While there’s a base Alfa Romeo Giulia that is equally beautiful and still fun to drive, we’re focusing on the Quadrifoglio model. Holder of a Nürburgring record and packed with go-fast parts, the Quadrifoglio delivers on all the lore – eye-watering design, soulful driving demeanor – we’ve heard about Alfa for years. For a more in-depth look at how it performs, take a look at our latest Why Buy?
