How much does it cost to run a Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon?
As long as you aren’t going for the Quadrifoglio (an official NEDC fuel economy figure of 30.7mpg and £315 tax on early examples), it shouldn’t cost you the earth to run a Giulia.
Diesel models are particularly frugal, since both the 148bhp and 177bhp versions of the 2.2-litre engine get a combined figure of 57.7mpg and £120 road tax. The 197bhp 2.0-litre petrol gets 41.5mpg, while the 276bhp version is a little down of this at 40.9mpg. All four-cylinder petrol Giulias should cost you £195 per year in tax.
Any Giulia registered after 1 April 2017 will be subject to the new flat rate fee of £140 per year in road tax, although if your car was worth more than £40,000 when new (this includes the price of options), it will also be penalised by the £310 luxury car surcharge until the car is more than six years old.
Alfa Romeo servicing can be pricey through main dealers, although the brand offers an Easy Care servicing package for used cars that allow you to set up direct debit payments for upcoming services.
