UConnect would be the logical choice...and an excellent system, if you ask me.Alfa Romeo: Alberto Cavaggioni confirms the arrival of Giulia and Stelvio 2020
This is an adjustment due to the fact that since the official debut, the infotainment was perhaps the only sore point of the two Italian cars. In short, therefore, the Milanese carmaker plans to make updates to the technological department of the Alfa Romeo Giulie and Stelvio 2020 by implementing a more technological bridge, more advanced and complete ADAS systems and greater usability.
I sure hope that means UConnect!
UConnect and Ventilated seats would make me switch early. When I test drove the Levante the shifter worked the same with the dumb button on the back and the easy way to hit neutral instead of drive or reverse.UConnect and the Maserati shift lever (or similar) would make me want to get the new model....
Just in case you’re not aware, the Lusso trim includes seat tilt for the front of the drivers and passengers seat. I can’t believe that’s not included in the other trims.Yeah...I'm ok with the function (because all auto's suck and the lever is just a toy anyway). The look/feel of the shifter is bar-none the worst thing about the interior IMO. I've spent over 300,000 miles driving manual transmissions...holding the shift lever is an unconscious habit, and I do not enjoy touching the shift lever in this car. At all. It point blank sucks to touch...feels like having the best, most loving, supportive wife in the world...not ever going to divorce her...going to love her forever...but her breath is so bad you can't kiss her, which makes the entire experience less enjoyable and you really wish she would go the dentist or buy some breath mints, but you cant make her....so you accept it and wish for better....
(PS...only OK with the function because no manufacturer will give me what I want...which is a open gated metal shifter lever that allows me to shift through the gears like a real manual transmission with gates for each gear and the ability to always know what gear I am in instantly by placing my hand on the lever and knowing the positition...plus the ability to skip shift however many gears I want up or down without needlessly toggling through each individual gear...so many benefits to direct access. Paddles are super cool and nicely functional in many ways...a gated shifter is still far better, and more entertaining, IMO. Short of a real lever with actual function to select gears...I don't care about the specific way it functions, it's basically just a video game controller to adjust to...just like going from X-Box to PS4 or PC...whatever...the same but different, all crumby in different ways)
Ventilated seats would be nice....a tilt function for the front of the seat would be better..... That and the shift lever....just why Alfa...why?????? You can give me a manual liftgate...most people wouldn't care....but not being able to tilt the front of the driver's seat probably costs 100 sales a month or more, when the prospective customer sits in the car, try's to adjust the seat into the position they have been using for 40 years.....and can't. Seriously WTF were you thinking? More than anything that needs to be addressed in an update.
I will go check this on my Lusso. I didn't know this was such a critical feature. Will report back.Just in case you’re not aware, the Lusso trim includes seat tilt for the front of the drivers and passengers seat. I can’t believe that’s not included in the other trims.
