What used Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon will I get for my budget?
Prices for a 2016 or early 2017 Giulia with an average to high mileage start at around £14,000, this probably for a lower-powered diesel model. Meanwhile, below-average mileage Super models of the same vintage come in at about £16,000. A 2017 Speciale model with plenty of equipment is roughly £17,000, while a 276bhp Veloce begins at around £20,000. Spend around the same on a good condition 2018 car, and maybe around or up to £25,000 on a 2019 car with a nominal mileage. Quadrifoglio versions understandably cost more, but you can put one on your driveway now from as little as £40,000.
How much does it cost to run a Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon?
As long as you aren’t going for the Quadrifoglio (an official WLTP fuel economy figure of 27.2mpg), 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 53.3mpg. The 197bhp 2.0-litre petrol gets 36.2mpg, while the 276bhp version is a little down of this at 33.6mpg.
All four-cylinder petrol Giulias should cost you £195 per year in tax. However, any Giulia registered after 1 April 2017 will be subject to the new flat rate fee currently £145 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 £320 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.
