What used Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio saloon will I get for my budget?

Prices for the Giulia QF can start at around £35,000 to £37,000, this for an early 2016 or 2017 car with an average mileage for the year and a full service history, bought privately or from an independent dealer. More tend to cost from £40,000 to £42,000 for a 2017 car, bought from a franchised dealer, while £43,000 to £47,000 will secure you a car with a low mileage from a franchised dealer. Expect to pay over £48,000 for a 2018 model.

How much does it cost to run a Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio saloon?

It ain’t gonna be cheap. The first thing to consider will be the frightening fuel consumption. In our real-world True MPG tests it achieved just 23.5mpg, and long-term use has backed up that figure too. The official figure of 34.4mpg might be hard to achieve in everyday use, we fear.

Cars registered before the tax changes of April 2017 came into being will pay the annual car tax (VED) at a rate based on CO2 emissions, so at 189g/km that’ll be sizeable. Those registered after that date will pay a tax at the flat rate, currently £140 a year, but will additionally pay a supplementary luxury car tax for cars costing over £40,000 new, and that is £310 a year at the moment.

Insurance groupings are high, so expect heavy bills there too. Servicing costs will be high, too, and we’d recommend not only seeking out a car that has a full Alfa Romeo service history but also getting the car serviced by a franchised dealer, especially while it’s still young.
