2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia and Genesis G70 Tackle the Pavement in Winnipeg, MB

September 20,2020

Both the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia and 2020 Genesis G70 boast capable Rear-Wheel Drive (RWD) systems, and each is prepared for tight turns and short stops. However, only the former offers the versatile Q4 All-Wheel Drive (AWD), ready to conquer Winnipeg’s notorious winter roads at the drop of a snowflake. There are other discrepancies between the two vehicles. While both run on a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, they deliver markedly different performances. Although the G70 presents a respectable 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, the Giulia zooms past with its 280 hp and 306 lb-ft. The Alfa Romeo’s iconic dual chrome exhaust tips (unlike the single twin tailpipe on the Genesis) allow for better engine exhalation, resulting in increased driver control and horsepower output. The Giulia’s superior pound-feet count really comes into play when the sedan unexpectedly finds itself pulling out onto an unplowed street. In such cases, the exclusive Q4 AWD system will immediately redistribute up to 60% of the Alfa Romeo’s torque to the front tires, quickly steadying the vehicle. Limited to RWD, G70 drivers may find themselves dealing with an uncomfortable amount of wheelspin. Experience the difference at Alfa Romeo of Winnipeg.
