Parkers overall rating: 4.1 out of 5 4.1
  • Good legroom for four but low roofline in the back
  • Middle rear seat is really for display purposes only
  • Competitively-sized boot with slightly awkward shape

There’s plenty of room in the cabin for four people, with six-footers able to sit fore and aft simultaneously, but forget transporting five.

Alfa Romeo Giulia interior

The transmission tunnel means the poor fifth occupant will be chewing their kneecaps for the entire journey, and taller adults in the outer pews will find headroom restricted too.

A long wheelbase relative to its overall length means the Alfa Romeo Giulia can get away with being shorter than rivals like the Audi A4, for example, without compromising interior space. That means you’re unlikely to struggle with parking this svelte Italian saloon.

The boot measures 480 litres, and it does have a decent-sized opening for a saloon car, but the shape of the aperture is such that larger items will foul around three quarters of the way to the rear seats as luggage space makes way for wheelarches.

Alfa Romeo Giulia boot

Alfa Romeo doesn’t supply a seats-down measurement for the Giulia but obviously there’s more space with them down – although not a huge amount more and the load floor isn’t flat thanks to a lump from the folded chairs.

Safety

  • Five-star rating from Euro NCAP
  • Impressive adult occupant safety
  • Lots of standard kit but no LED headlights

The Alfa Romeo Giulia has a full five-star rating from Euro NCAP with an impressive 98% result for adult occupants, which is very impressive.

There’s also a decent amount of safety equipment installed on the Giulia - standard kit includes a forward collision warning system, low-speed autonomous emergency braking and lane-departure warning. Moving up the trim structure nets you xenon headlights with a cornering function (to enable you to see around the corner than conventional ‘straight’ beams). Unlike German rivals there are no full-LED headlights for superior night-vision, which is a shame.

Optional features include adaptive cruise control and blindspot monitoring plus the Giulia Quadrifoglio gets torque-vectoring (the braking of wheels to prevent wheelslip in corners) and uprated brakes with the option to specify carbon-ceramic ones at extra cost.

Giulia updated to level two autonomy in 2020

As well as upgrading existing tech, the model year update in 2020 brought the Giulia up to the second level of autonomy – meaning the car can be left to control the gas, brakes and steering (albeit under constant monitoring by the driver).

The ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) collection includes:

  • Lane keeping assist
  • Active blind spot assist
  • Active cruise control
  • Traffic sign recognition and intelligent speed control
  • Traffic jam assist and highway assist (autonomous driving)
  • Driver attention assist

Still no LED headlights though – it’s unlikely they’ll make an appearance on the Giulia until the car is replaced.

Euro NCAP Rating – 5 stars

The Alfa Romeo Giulia was tested by Euro NCAP in 2016 and was awarded a 5 star overall rating. This overall rating is calculated from the following individual ratings:

5 star rating
Test 2016
Individual safety ratings
Adult Occupant: 98%
Child Occupant: 81%
Pedestrian: 69%
Safety Assist: 60%

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe. The safety ratings are determined from a series of vehicle tests, designed and carried out by Euro NCAP. These tests represent, in a simplified way, important real life accident scenarios that could result in injured or killed car occupants or other road users.
