During early 2016, there were reports about Alfa Romeo delaying the Giulia so it could be re-innovated to meet crash test standards, claims that the automaker reject. As it turns out, whatever the real factor for the hold-up was, the Giulia you can purchase today is not dangerous. It’s in fact one of the most safest cars available.
Alfa Romeo announced this week that the Giulia has been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. To obtain that score, the Giulia needed to earn a score of “Good” on all 5 kinds of crashes the IIHS tests, consisting of small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roofing strength, and head restraint. It further has to earn an “Advanced” or “Superior” score for front crash prevention and an “Acceptable” or “Good” headlight score.
Geared up with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure caution, the Giulia made the best rating in all classications. Make sure to spring for the additional curve-adaptive headlights, however. While the IIHS found those to be wonderful, the headlights that come standard achieved a “Poor” rating.
