Being Alfa Romeo dealers serving Cincinnati, OH and surrounding communities, we couldn’t be happier to tell you that the 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia has won a prestigious award from Motor Trend. More specifically, the new Alfa Romeo Giulia was named Motor Trend’s 2018 Car of the Year.

“The Motor Trend Car of the Year award acknowledges all of the hard work, dedication, and passion that went into developing the entire [Alfa Romeo] Giulia lineup – including our record-breaking [Alfa Romeo] Giulia Quadrifoglio – which revolutionizes the segment and pays tribute to our storied heritage and racing pedigree,” said Reid Bigland, head of Alfa Romeo. “We are honored to be the first Italian brand to ever receive this prestigious award and we’re excited for the future of [the] Alfa Romeo [brand[ here in North America and abroad.”

Motor Trend’s judges agreed that the Alfa Romeo Giulia is the new ultimate driving machine,” said Ed Loh, Motor Trend editor-in-chief. “[The] Alfa Romeo [brand] developed a car that is perhaps the finest handling sedan on the market.”

Every vehicle that was in contention to win Motor Trend’s Car of the Year award was evaluated using six criteria, including advancement in design, excellence in engineering, safety, efficiency, value, and performance. These key criteria represent what drivers want most in their next automobile. In addition to being evaluated, every contender for the Car of the Year award was road tested in real-life situations that included navigating poorly aligned railroad crossings, steep grades, and imperfect pavement.
