Drove the base model, RWD, sport package. Power was lacking, could not hear engine at all in the cabin, too tame. Car shifted when it wanted to, not driven by the paddles.
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.
