The 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia will be available in three trims - Sprint, Ti, and a new Veloce. The Veloce replaces the Sport Ti trim and comes with a similar set of features with Veloce badging. Although many are expecting a refresh visually, we reckon that will happen in 2023-24 as the previous upgrade happened in 2020. 

The rest of the 2022 Giulia is similar to the 2021 model and comes with the same 2.0 turbocharged inline-4 making 280 hp which allows it to do 0-60 in 5.1-seconds. However, if you are looking for more power and performance there are the Giulia Quadrifoglio and Giulia GTA models. The interior comes with all the comforts and is very stylish. Alfa Romeo price the Giulia at a starting MSRP of $42,550, bringing it into competition with the Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C300, and BMW 3 Series

Additionally, this is the first year the Veloce trim will be sold in the U.S. market, making it a bit more exclusive.
