Let’s First briefly look at the models available here from 2015-2020.  Australia generally get the models a year after initial release.

2015 Series 1 Quadrifoglio Verde
Discounting the limited-edition manual model with the old QV engine, we are looking at all models with the newer 4C aluminium engine (177Kw) and new automatic style twin clutch transmission TCT. 

This model was updated with an exterior facelift, new alcantara seats and noticeably a new Uconnect multimedia system incorporates a 6.5-inch touchscreen in the central dashboard and comes complete with Bluetooth interface, aux-in connector, USB port and the option of voice commands.

Note that there was a Launch Edition model with carbon fibre accents and a sports body kit which comprises distinctive side skirts, a front air dam and a rear diffuser. 500 units were built and 25 units in Alfa Red and 25 in Launch Edition-exclusive Matte Magnesio Grey.

2017 Series 2 Veloce
At the time of the launch of the all new Giulia with range topping Quadrifoglio, the Quadrifoglio Verde product was changed to Veloce to reflect its comparative position in the brand.

There were minor trim upgrades internally and externally with the 5 twin spoke alloy wheels.

2019 Series 2 Veloce S
With only 30 units of the Giulietta Veloce S available in Australia, this car will be rarely seen on the road.  Main stand out features include red S etched miron alloy wheels, red exterior Veloce S badging and decals, carbon accents and a Magneti Marelli 'Elaboraziono 1919' sports exhaust.

2020 Series 3 Veloce (the end of the line)
Only minor interior and exterior changes to previous Series 2 in 2017, The standout feature was the upgraded infotainment system with the Alpine 7-Inch Infotainment Screen with reversing camera.  This comes with the standard miron alloy wheels.

Buyers choices:
There is a good range of cars for sale from about $20k up and the Launch Editions are a few $ more and hard to find.

Today, I would look for a 2015 Quadrifoglio Verde with the lowest kms with some record of service history.  Purchase price would be subject to pre purchase inspection by an Alfa specialist and price negotiable with any service due (timing belt, brakes, tyres).

With the older style 6.5 Uconnect multimedia system, I would be happy to use the google map system with a suitable mobile phone mount.
More importantly, I would look at a reputable installer to fit a reversing camera set up with the infotainment system.   A search on the internet will provide  some more information.

I only use my Giulietta QV on weekends except for holiday, club drives and tours.  So in that regard, I would not be looking at a near new car.

That’s my choice for today.

Cheers.
