7 Giulia Ti's for sale in Edmond, OK

For grins, I checked out the Alfa dealer in Edmond, OK. Their website says that have 7 Giulia Ti 2.0L sedans in stock, but no Q4s.

I didn't know that Ti's were sold here, as of yet.

Excellent. Yeah, the Ti showed up here in LA about a week ago. I think Canada is waiting on the Polar Express still. That or the spring thaw.

Criswell Alfa Romeo in Germantown Maryland has eight Giulia's. I will be going by this weekend to test drive a few. I'm extremely excited, this will be my first time driving a brand new Alfa Romeo.

Unhappy

Maybe drove a Ti; after all the hype surrounding the blistering Quadrifoglio, anything else would be extremely sedate

How I would love a White one w/ red stiching on those dark gray seats!
Yum!

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

Is it possible that Alfa has fallen victim to their pre-war mentality of producing incredible cars at unreasonable prices which only a select few can afford or justify?

FYI, you can get active suspension if you get the performance package. It also gets you the Q2 LSD, a no-brainer for me as a $1200 package but it's only available on Ti trim.

I don't necessarily agree with you on the power as I felt it was adequate for a 280HP motor. It feels very well composed and agile compared to cars in this segment, in my opinion. Have to play with the paddle shifters more, but in my limited time in manual mode it was pretty obedient. I do hear people complain about occasional hesitation in shifting though; it should be less intrusive in Dynamic setting.

I typically drive a 2005 Maserati Coupe GT or a 3.2L Audi TT. Maybe that's why it felt so underpowered. The stop/start engine is enough to turn me off. I understand that it's a personal thing and as I said, it's well styled....but it's a 2.0 liter engine with significant turbo lag.

Sounds like the rumored 350HP model with electric turbo will fill your bill nicely Can't wait for it to be officially revealed.

Some riducuous comparisons been made here!!! The standard Giulia should be compared to standard BMW/Audi models (same price bracket).

Giulia2017 (?????) is comparing his usual Maserati and TT rides to a standard Giulia, great comparison mate as you're a real joker...

Well I'm coming from a 200HP GTI so in a sense I'm more easily impressed by the base Giulia... LOL

Anyway, the 350HP rumor came from a parts listing that showed a 350HP engine Giulia variant for US. The "48V electric turbo" bit of info came from a Top Gear review article of the base Giulia. It's a very logical step since this would bridge the big gap between base and QV. If Giulia sells well enough the bean counters at FCA will most likely give it a go.
