2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Named IIHS Top Safety Pick+
With the long- awaited return of the Alfa Romeo brand to U. S. shores, you can count safety to the long list of attractive aspects for its newest vehicles. The Giulia, a mid- size premium sedan, has earned a 2017 Top Safety Pick+ ( TSP+) rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ( IIHS).
Achieving such lofty safety ratings in its inaugural model year puts the Giulia in a class of rarified air. The TSP+ designation is contingent upon achieving ratings of “good” in five IIHS crashworthiness evaluations. The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia achieves “good” – the highest possible rating – in each.
According to Reid Bigland, head of Alfa Romeo, the all- new Giulia represents the height of Alfa Romeo engineering and technology. “No effort was spared when it came to the vehicle’s performance and safety features,” said Bigland. “We’re honored to receive this award from IIHS as it shows our commitment to creating state- of- the- art vehicles.”
