For motorists in the United States who think that driving a new Alfa Romeo is worth it, here comes some very good news. Alfa Romeo is slashing $100 off the usual monthly lease for the new Giulia. More specifically, Alfa Romeo is offering US drivers a 24-month lease deal that entails a down payment of just $3,299 and a monthly payment of $299.
This seemingly sweet lease offer comes as the Italian premium carmaker seems to be having some trouble to meet its expectations for the Alfa Romeo Giulia premium mid-size sedan in the US. Although the Italian carmaker has seen sales of the Giulia increase month by month since January 2017, it has yet to breach the 1,000 monthly sales barrier. From a measly sales number of 70 units in January 2017, the Alfa Romeo Giulia crawled its way up to 992 examples in June 2017, for a total of 3,475 units in the first six months of 2017. The increase seems encouraging, but it falls short of the expectations that the Giulia would be a big seller.
For $299 a month, this lease deal is enticing for customers looking for a gorgeous car with Italian design and heritage, state of the art technologies as well as great handling and sprinting capability. This offer refers to a base, rear-wheel drive version of the Alfa Romeo Giulia (with 22L package), with the pricing based on an MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) example of $38,990.
With this offer, the customer gets a Giulia sedan powered by a 2.0-liter inline-4 direct-injection engine – mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox -- that could deliver 280 hp of max output and 306 lb.-ft. of peak torque. Standard features include Bi-Xenon headlamps, DNA mode selector, LED daytime running lights (DRLs), LED rear lamps, leather seating, a seven-inch TFT as well as back-up camera and rear park sensors. Also included are 17-inch wheels, remote start, leather steering wheel.
However, customers could still add a number of optional features into their Giulia sedans. For instance, customers may want to avail of heated seats, blind-spot monitoring, aluminum paddle shifters or even a sunroof. Of course, any add-on also means a corresponding increase in the monthly lease. An all-drive version of the base model is also available, although that would mean that the customers would have to shell out $20 more a month ($319 monthly).
Just like most luxury car lease offer, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is limited for 10,000 miles a year. Excess wear and mileage means an additional payment of $0.20 per mile. To avail of the offer, a customer should take delivery of their Alfa Romeo Giulia by July 31, 2017.
