When it pertains to being and also managing enjoyable to drive, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia is right on top. From its tossable and also appealing Ti trim, to the completely bonkers Quadrifoglio, Alfa Romeo has some outstanding alternatives for those that like to drive. We aren’t checking out 0-60 miles per hour times or guiding feeling today, so allow’s see just how the Italian car holds up when it comes to traveling bag piling.
Alfa Romeo does not provide a main trunk capability on its media site or its consumer-facing website, yet it’s really comparable in dimension to the last high-end car I luggage evaluated: the 2020 Volvo S60 We’ll put the quote to be about 12 cubic-feet. Simply by eye-balling it, Alfa seems on the smaller sized side of the range right here, with its competitors being the BMW 3 Collection, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and also numerous others.
Keep in mind that I utilize various tools than Riswick out in Rose city: 2 carry-on bags sized (24 inches long, 15.5 large, 10 deep); one carry-on traveling bag (217 L x 13.7 W x 9 D); one medium-size traveling bag you need to examine (245 L x 16.8 W x 11.5 D) and also 2 bigger, full-size bags (338 L x 21.5 W x 13 D) and also (281 L x 18 W x 10.5 D).
It’s not a power trunk, yet you can pop it using the fob, a switch by the chauffeur footwell or a switch on the trunk itself. As soon as open, I began with the carry-on bags. All 3 of those fit when activated their sides, yet a 4th would certainly be difficult to press in utilizing that development. That results from the Giulia’s trunk coming to be a lot more limiting in both deepness and also size much deeper within it. You’ll observe the bent invasions at the rear of the trunk envisioned listed below. They make pushing a bag right back in there difficult, as there isn’t sufficient area beside the various other 3 bags. The opening itself is instead tiny, as well, requiring me to bend the bags as I lay them in.
Rather, I made a decision to stick the expensive bag (22 L x 8.8 W x 12 D) therein. It’s smaller sized and also far better matched to the area that stays, suitable completely within that space. That’s not suitable, yet a lot of space for 2 individuals on a longer vacation.
Successive: full-size bags. Among them fit right in uncreative, yet the 2nd full-sizer I utilize for screening would certainly not. Once more, this is because of the size constraints enforced by the trunk wall surfaces can be found in on both sides at the back. If both were transformed on an angle, I did handle to fit the medium-size traveling bag next to the one full-sizer. Furthermore, 2 carry-on bags fit piled on top of each various other beside the full-sizer. Their smaller sized deepness permits them to fit like that in the relatively brief location permitted. A carry-on does not fit over the full-size traveling bag. The tale coincides with the medium-size traveling bag, as it’s high sufficient that the carry-ons can not be piled over it.
If even more area is needed, the Giulia’s back seats do fold up down. You can launch them from their secured setting with pull tabs in the trunk, yet you after that require to fold them below the back entrances. They lay at an angle right here, yet enable the packaging of long, brief products. There is no pass-through, yet you can independently take down the center section for longer, slim products.
General, the Giulia is a second-rate hauler for its sector. It’s not embarrassingly tiny. The dimension resembles various other tiny trunks like the S60’s or Genesis G70’s. The limited area is forgiven instead promptly when the roadway obtains twisty, as well, as the upgraded 2020 Giulia is still a peach to drive.
