Alfa Romeo is laying out its stall for 191 with big discounts on the Giulia and the Stelvio.
In fact, both cars get a discount of as much as €6,000, depending on which model you're buying. The minimum saving is €3,000. Now, it's worth noting that the biggest discounts come on old pre-WLTP stock, which Alfa is trying to clear before the models with updated engines arrive. If you're happy with that, it means you can get a basic 150hp 2.2-litre diesel Giulia Super for as little as €33,995, and that's with an eight-speed automatic gearbox as standard. If you order a run-out stock Giulia, you can get a fully-loaded 180hp diesel Super Lux model for just €39,245.
There are also some significant savings to be had on new Giulia models, which comply with the latest emissions test standards, and which get an updated 160hp or 190hp 2.2-litre diesel engine. Those get €3,000 off a basic Super model, with prices starting from €40,995. You can get €4,000 off the 280hp turbo petrol Veloce model, bringing it to €50,495, or €6,000 off the 2.9-litre V6 turbo 510hp Giulia Quadrifoglio bringing its price down to €99,135.
Across the hall, the Stelvio SUV gets some similar offers. Run-out stock cars are available from €52,495 for a 210hp 2.2-litre diesel Speciale with all-wheel drive, or €53,495 for the top-spec Milano Edizione version. New Stelvios also get the updated 190hp 2.2-litre diesel, and those now start from €49,995 - a saving of some €2,800. The mighty 510hp Quadrifoglio version of the Stelvio has just arrived, too, and that gets a €6,000 discount if you order it before the 31st of December, at a price of €112,795.
The compact Giulietta hatchback comes in for some savings too. Prices now start from €24,095 (that's €1,500 off the old price) for the 1.4-litre 120hp turbo petrol model, and there's a new B-Tech model, which comes with extra body kit, 18-inch alloys, leather upholstery, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, auto lights and wipers and red brake calipers for €29,845 - a saving of €1,000.
