The Italian automaker has used the 86th edition of the Geneva Motor Show to finally introduce the complete Alfa Romeo Giulia family after previously we only caught glances of the flagship QV version.

The wait is now finally over and eager fans can start imagining their perfect Giulia. The automaker is now ready to introduce the model in showrooms and has announced first orders will be accepted starting April 15 for the countries in the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East, and Africa). The Swiss event only confirms what we already knew from the numerous rumor flying around the mill – the Giulia will also pack a 2.2-liter diesel engine sporting either 150 horsepower (110 kilowatts) or 180 hp (132 kW).

The engines will be mated with a six-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed automatic gearbox sending power to the rear axle. The gasoline credentials are supported by the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine packing a 200-bar high pressure direct injection system and delivering a total power of 200 hp (137 kW) at 5,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 244 pound-feet (330 Newton meters) at 1,750 rpm – this one will be exclusively linked to the eight-speed automatic transmission.

The automaker also showcased some of its handiwork – which includes technologies such as the electromechanical system that joins the stability control and a traditional servo brake, the forward collision warning with autonomous emergency brake and pedestrian detection, or the active aero splitter (which is only available on the QV). The model will be offered with three trims: Giulia, Super, and Quadrifoglio and even the entry-level offering comes nicely equipped with 16-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, Connect 6.5 infotainment system and a cruise control with speed limiter.
