Alfa Romeo’s entire lineup consists of Giulia and Stelvio, and the Italian brand is leading them into the 2022 model year with a ton more standard equipment. The downside is that if you want a cheaper Alfa Romeo, these cars will be more expensive in the process. On Thursday, the brand unveiled updates for both the luxury sedan and SUV along with their new pricing.

For the Giulia 2022, the sedan now starts at $ 44,455 after a destination fee of $ 1,495. That’s about $ 2,000 more than last year, but again, there’s a lot more equipment. Now even the base models come with a package of active safety equipment that includes adaptive cruise control and blind spots. If amenities are more your thing, heated front and the rear seats are now standard, as is a cordless phone charger and an automatic damping rearview mirror. Across the board, buyers get an 8.8-inch infotainment screen and a 7-inch instrument cluster display. A new air quality system is also included in the trip, and a couple of the decorations get grocery bag hooks in the trunk.

The exterior will be dark with dark trim elements and a new dark-grilled grille, while new bi-xenon headlights illuminate the way forward. However, the engine features remain the same, meaning a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine with 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque all but one Giulia. If you step into Giulia Quadrifoglio, this is where you get the breathtaking twin-turbo, 2.9-liter, V6 engine with 505 hp.

Speaking of trimmer, the lineup of the sedan is being redesigned with Ti Sport trim that kicks the bucket. Instead, the hierarchy goes Sprint, Ti, Veloce (to replace Ti Sport) and Quadrifoglio.

All of these changes also find their way to the Stelvio, but the SUV also gets darker exhaust tips, skid plate and roof rails. Prices for the SUV will increase by $ 2,800 to start with a new base price of $ 46,645. Both cars can be configured on the Alfa Romeo website and should soon find their way to dealers.
