Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Giulia Updated With New Headlights, Digital Gauges

1 min read

Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia haven’t undergone a significant style update since their debut. That changes today, with the pair receiving simple exterior and interior upgrades that refresh the fascia and bring new technology into the cabin.

Both cars get new headlight and taillight designs, with Alfa adding full-LED Adaptive Matrix headlights to its models. The new unit updates the Stelvio and Giulia to be more similar to the recently introduced Tonale which goes on sale next spring. At the rear, Alfa houses the Giulia’s new taillight design in glass with a transparent coating, hiding the Stelvio under smoky glass with a glossy black finish. The automaker also refreshed the triangular grille and lower bumper opening.

The interior changes are even simpler, as Alfa only adds a new 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster. It features three layouts: Evolved, Relaxed, and Heritage. The Heritage look takes inspiration from the brand’s cars from the 1960s and 1970s, featuring signature details such as an inverted number on the tip of the speedometer.

When the updated Stelvio and Giulia go on sale, Alfa Romeo will offer both in four trims, simplifying the lineup. They are the Super, Sprint, Ti, and Veloce, with the Super trim as the entry-level model for sedans and SUVs.

The launch of the updated model will coincide with Alfa introducing the special Competizione series. It will be based on the Veloce trim and available with any engine, standing out from the rest with its Moon Light matte gray exterior and red brake calipers, which will hide behind the 21-inch alloy wheels. Inside, Competizione cars will receive a Harman/Kardon audio system, unique headrest badges, dashboard and leather upholstery (with red stitching), and privacy glass.

Since the Stelvio was introduced in 2017 and the Giulia in 2016, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has merged with the PSA Group to form Stellantis. The updated sedans and SUVs would be excellent additions to the Tonale, helping the brand grow its lineup. There are rumors that the automaker will be adding a new sports car sometime next year. It will allegedly sport retro design cues and come with either hybrid or electric power.
