Giulia2017 (?????) is comparing his usual Maserati and TT rides to a standard Giulia, great comparison mate as you're a real joker...
I was not "comparing" them. I was saying maybe I was disappointed because I was accustomed to something different. Name calling is not necessary.
It would "compare" badly to either a BMW or an Audi

Your rudeness is surprising.
I have owned several Alfa in the past and was on this Forum (gold member) for several years. I have not been an owner for a couple of years.
I rejoined when I thought I was buying a Giulia and wanted to see other members experiences.

I have driven the new Giulia, I have driven Audis and BMWs, I am capable and competent enough to judge them and express my opinion.

I found it boring and no longer have an interest (after years of anticipation). Im certain the Quad is up to par but at $85 large, better choice may be out there.
Body style is appealing, interior is OK but more Jaguar than Italian. The D-N-A knob is a joke, suspension does not change, a gimmick IMO.

Ti is trim/cosmetic differences only, nothing to do with performance

Del - I suspect you won't be looking at these for another 20 years anyway
I drove a Ti with paddles, in Dynamic mode. Put about ten miles on it. Very nice. The power is there, nice, smooth. Felt very planted. Yes, it's too quite for me, but that's how most sedan owners want it. It doesn't have the power of the Quad I drove, nor does it compare to my 4C.

Hitting on a few posts after and including this...
There is a Ti Performance Package available for the Ti only. It has paddle shifters, active suspension and a real LSD, not the electronic Q2. This package does not conflict with any other package nor is it dependent upon any other package. It is however, only available with the Ti (I said that twice).

The NA Giulia has 280 HP. There is a Euro spec Giulia Veloce with 350 hp or so. I doubt it will find it's way to the US. But, it shouldn't take long for the aftermarket support companies to build a 350hp package. This would probably include an ECU clone, intake & exhaust to hit the 350 mark.

So I thought I would chime in here as we are considering a Giulia Ti AWD
the Ti is squarely aimed at the 2016 BMW 330 sedan....NOT the 340 NOR the 320..just to be clear
from a power perspective the BMW gives up 32hp (248 vs. 280) and they are both 4 bangers...
as an aside the BMW number designations used to mean something...the 330 is a 2.0 4 cylinder...now just misnomer marketing.

base prices for the AWD versions are similar with the Alfa being a bit higher...BUT..more equipped.
ie: no leather in a 330 (sensa-tec)....
at the end of the day it will come down to 2 factors: A: driving dynamics...which car just feels better to each person...
B: Alfa dealers & cars reliability and service.

IMHO BMW already sits on top of point#2....Alfa has much to do to shake the rep from many years ago.

this is my first Alfa...so I am taking the plunge and so far so good from a car perspective & dealer perspective.
I still have 6 BMW's so I think I'm a fair judge :-)

Giulia Veloce

Just did a drive-by lusting on the alfaromeo.it website and I discovered that Alfa is offering a Giulia Veloce model.

I may be the last person to discover this, but I thought it was the appropriate thing to do.

When was the last time Alfa offered a Veloce coupe or sedan?

Hmm, looking better? I wonder what the price will be on that one. Probably ~$55-60K?
