Top-end variants of the Alfa Romeo Giulia are expected with six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.

The Giulia will be a sports-sedan, rivaling the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Jaguar XE. Like the latter, the Giulia sports a long slender bonnet, a low waistline and short overhangs. A spiritual successor to the Alfa Romeo 159, its still unclear as to what the Giulia is based on; certain reports say it is built on the Maserati Ghibli's platform.

Power for the Giulia is expected to come from petrol and diesel engines, with the most powerful units being V6 engines capable of as much as 480 hp. The diesel six-cylinder engine is expected to be the same one powering the Ghibli - a 3.0-liter unit with 271 bhp on tap.
