Have you seen in person? Lines change and looks way better when you see it in the flesh IMHO.

In person the Guilia QV is to die for. It's masculine for sure. Sadly though, the proportions don't exactly translate fully in photos. This is especially true when the exterior is shot with shorter focal lengths (under 60mm.) Seeing it in person, all of the compound curves in the front and over the rear fenders are straight up sexy. More like the way cars were designed in the 60's. Note that the Stelvio QV is much the same in person. A rolling compact piece of auto muscle and art.

Comparing Alfa's design language here vs. Audi, BMW and MBZ, or even Chevy's SS is like the look of a custom tailored suit vs off the rack at Nordstrom. The Nordy suit is just fine, but in person looks shabby compared to something truly bespoke. Cadilllac's latest iteration of Art & Science design language as well as Jaguar's current design theme's are closer in refinement, but not nearly as emotional. That's design of the Alfas coming. Hard to describe, but really special.

Oh No I totally get you on this we share the same feelings, I mean it's not like...



Don't worry the BRZ is still around hahaha but I do have to say that as a professional and an enthusiast like all of you. The Giulia is the best car I've driven all year and I drive a ton of cars. I am in love with it, so much : ) I've had only a bit of time with it so far because just got it this week. I'm sure Guff can tell you more and I'll add on whatever else anyone is wondering.

So I saw the car in person at the Mall of America and I still think it's ugly. I think it's worse in person

Ahhh the Mall of "America". Built, owned and operated by Canadians. One of my favorite trivia facts.

Well, technically, Canada is in (North) America.

I don't like MOA one bit and haven't been there in years. We passed after eating at a local favorite Thai restaurant and decided to stop by to see the new sections of the mall. Just happen an Alfa Giulia was there @ the lower level

BTW, isn't the largest mall in North America in Canada? Or so I heard!?!?

Just in North America. West Edmonton Mall owned by the same people as MOA. Was the largest but Asian malls have blown it away in the last few years.
