The 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio is a near-perfect sports sedan

First, let’s establish what we’re working with. The Giulia Quadrifoglio is based on the Giulia I reviewed last week, but with the performance dials all pegged to the max. It gets adjustable magnetic suspension, a torque-vectoring differential, a couple of carbon fiber bits, high-performance Pirelli rubber and upgraded Brembo brakes. Most importantly, it gets a Ferrari-derived, twin-turbocharged V-6 doling out 505 horsepower.

The interior is comfortable, with tight racing buckets that grab you by the hips and hold you in for the ride ahead. Material quality is up to class standards, though nothing too exciting. It comes with quality speakers, CarPlay, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

The ride, thanks to the magnetic dampers, is entirely controlled and composed in daily usage. It isn’t overly loud. All in all, it’s a traditional sports sedan; completely docile and controlled without a hint of drama in daily driving.
