Alfa Romeo’s fan-favourite Giulia Quadrifoglio and Stelvio Quadrifoglio performance cars have undergone a mild refresh for the 2020 model year.

The update – which focuses on technology and interior changes over mechanical revisions – brings the range-topping models in line with the core range, which received a similar refresh back in November last year.

The existing 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 soldiers on for 2020 with identical 375kW and 600Nm outputs, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels in the Giulia and all four treads in the Stelvio.

The sole mechanical change is the addition of an optional Akrapovič titanium exhaust, a quad-tipped version of the system fitted to the 397kW, limited-run Giulia GTA and GTAm lightweight specials unveiled in March.

The majority of the updates have taken place inside the cabin, where there’s an overhauled 8.8-inch infotainment touchscreen with Performance Pages, revised leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter and a redesigned centre console.

Buyers get the choice between sports seats (trimmed in either perforated leather or a leather/Alcantara combination) or carbon-shell Sparco bucket seats.

Exterior updates are minimal, consisting of smoked LED tail-lights and three new historic colours: 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra and Montreal Green.

A carbon-fibre finish is now available from the options list for the exhaust tips, grille, mirror caps and spoiler, while 21-inch alloy wheels can now be optioned on the Stelvio.

The Quadrifoglio twins also gain the same Level 2 semi-autonomous driving capabilities as the core range, which allow the V6 duo to steer, brake and accelerate autonomously on a motorway as long as the driver is alert and has their hands on the steering wheel.

Other safety technologies on offer include adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, driver attention monitoring, traffic jam assist and highway assist.
