For the 2023 Giulia and Stelvio models, OEM Alfa Romeo is introducing a completely new digital instrument panel to ensure drivers benefit from a connected driving experience.
Featuring the company’s historic telescopic design, the digital 12.3in TFT screen enables drivers of the vehicles to access a wide range of vehicle information and parameters which relate to autonomous driving technologies. Additionally, the clusters can be configured into three different layouts depending on driver preference.
The new Giulia and Stelvio feature a fluid and intuitive human-machine interface (HMI) to keep all of the vehicle’s functionalities at hand. The car’s infotainment system pairs with the optional Alfa Connect Services to deliver features such as over-the-air updates and control of certain vehicle functionalities – such as locking or unlocking the doors – via a smartphone or smartwatch.
As with the OEM’s Tonale model, the Giulia and Stelvio have built-in non-fungible token (NFT) technology which is based on the concept of the blockchain card. This encrypted and non-modifiable digital register is used to store information specific to the car. Depending on a customer’s selection, the NFT generates a certificate where data on the vehicle’s life gets recorded. This certificate can be used to guarantee proper vehicle maintenance, helping to support the vehicle’s residual value.
Competizione series vehicles feature a Harman Kardon audio system, a leather upholstered dashboard, seats with red stitching and a Competizione badge on the sides and front headrests. Privacy glass also features.
