New range structure and ADAS features for Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio
The Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio are being updated with a raft of changes for the 2020 model year, including a newer, simpler range structure and the introduction of new Level 2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and the brand’s latest infotainment system.
Key changes for both models include restructured ranges with simplified trims, starting off with the entry-level Super and Lusso Ti featuring silver exterior details and the Sprint and Veloce, which offer a sportier look with dark styling.
Standard equipment across the Stelvio range includes rear parking camera, bi-xenon headlights and electrically folding wing mirrors as well as a new infotainment system with 8.8-inch touch-screen and embedded connectivity while a new 7-inch TFT screen in the heart of the instrument cluster is also now standard across the entire range.
Giulia models will also get the new 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment system across the board along with updated interior, bi-xenon headlights, Apple Carplay and Android Auto compatibility and new trim badging.
The new MY2020 Giulia and Stelvio also mark the debut of ADAS features, including lane keeping assist, active blind spot, active cruise control, traffic jam assistant and highway assist, and driver attention assist.
The updated models are also equipped with Alfa Connected Services as standard to deliver advanced on-board connectivity and a set of services to boost safety and comfort. This includes new 2020 features such as the My Assistant function, which offers an SOS call feature, and My Remote, which enables remote control of several vehicle functions. There’s also new My Navigation functionality, My Car – which enables owners to keep their car’s health and parameters under constant control, My Wi-Fi and My Theft Assistance, which alerts the owner of any attempt to steal the car, and the My Fleet Manager feature, intended for fleet management.
Other updates include revised interiors incorporating updated materials and new layouts.
The new Alfa Romeo Stelvio will be available to order from January 2020, with first cars arriving in the UK during January, with Giulia following later in Q1.
