"Youve (sic) never driven a Giulia have you?"
Oh, indeed I have.
Yes, it handles very well, better than is needed on normal roads, but would be terrific on winding back roads, for sure. Other than that, I wondered if it was actually that much better than say my 94LS as it is set up. Well, yes, it handles better on tighter roads, and is a little faster in acceleration; but otherwise, it doesn't have a manual (my wife and I are old fashioned in liking those), has too much infotainment and other electronics, etc, for my needs or wants, and certainty doesn't sound as nice when accelerating, and, IMO, doesn't look as nice (our personal opinions of course).
Should I love and buy it just because it is "new" (some needing to buy the "newest" thing on the market, have a relative like that, lol)? No. Most likely, I will end up liking it for the handling, the general feel on the road, the rest of the product almost immaterial for desirability, almost drawbacks.
Time will tell.
