With no hybrid or plug-in hybrid (PHEV) in the range, no version will be all that cost-effective as a company car. However, if you’re a private buyer and you value fine handling and genuinely sporty performance over outright practicality (the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series are more spacious) then the Giulia is a fine choice.

Veloce is only a touch more expensive than entry-level Sprint but benefits from 19in wheels, heated, electrically adjustable leather seats, aluminium trim inserts, sportier exterior styling and a limited-slip differential.

In pre-facelifted models, it was possible to get a 197bhp version of this unit, but it was removed from the range in the name of simplification. Instead, you’re limited to a punchy 276bhp version. The good news is that it's a peach of an engine and feels far quicker than its 0-62mph time of 5.7 seconds suggests.
