Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Estrema
  • Active Suspension and limited-slip differential as standard
  • Prices from £50,579
  • On sale now

Both Alfa Romeo Giulia and Alfa Romeo Stelvio are now available with a new top-of-the-range trim that is to be offered globally for the first time. In the UK, the Giulia Estrema will be powered by a 276bhp 2.0-turbo petrol engine, while the Stelvio will have the option of the same 2.0-litre petrol or a 207bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine. 

The new Alfa Romeos will face competition from the BMW 3 Series and BMW X3 M Sport models, as well as the Audi A4 and Audi Q5 S line models. Alfa is hoping to attract buyers with a more flamboyant and purposeful look and sporty driving experience, against the more reserved German executive rivals.

Estema models get carbon fibre details including the wing mirrors and front grille surround. Four colour choices will be offered with red, white, black and blue available, while inside all cars get dark Alcantara and leather seats with red stitching. The Giulia will get 19-inch wheels in dark grey and the Stevlio will get the same style but with a larger diameter of 21 inches. A 14-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system will come as standard.

Both models will get active suspension and a limited-slip differential to sharpen the driving experience and give a sporty feel. Other mechanical changes are limited, with the same engine and gearbox as other models in the respective ranges.

Prices for the Alfa Romeo Guilia Estema will start from £50,579, while the Stelvio Estema costs from £57,999 for the 2.2-litre diesel, or £59,999 for the 2.0-litre petrol.
