A friend asked me a question I could not answer. Are there differences between the QV suspension and the Q2 suspension? I said I thought there were but I realized I did not know that for sure. I know the QV is about 1/2 inch lower than the Q2, but are there any significant differences in the geometry?

Geometries are the same for all Giulias. Just different springs, dampers and roll bars depending on the exact trim and spec. Suspension geometry is dual-wishbone in the front and vertical rod, multi-link in the rear.

Front suspension: different uprights, upper wishbones, springs, antiroll bar.
Rear suspension: different subframe, hub carriers, springs, antiroll bar.

Geometries as follows:

Front Wheel Geometry

Half toe
All Versions: 0' (±4')

Camber (not adjustable)
2.0/2.2 RWD/AWD: -30' (±20')
Quadrifoglio: -35' (±20')

Caster (not adjustable)
2.0/2.2 RWD: +6°8' (±18')
2.0/2.2 AWD: +5°37' (±18')
Quadrifoglio: +6°18' (±18')


Rear Wheel Geometry

Half toe
2.0/2.2 RWD/AWD: +13' (±8')
Quadrifoglio: +13' (±4')

Camber
All Versions: -1°30' (±20')


All values are with the vehicle in "Standard A" - unladen except accessories/tools and with a full tank.

So are the adaptive dampers from QV compatible with the adaptive systems in Ti?

I love the stiff setting on the Ti but the soft will leave the car way floatier than I would like.

Thanks @MacGeek! Very comprehensive. So if I am understanding correctly the design of the suspension is the same, but the size and stiffness of some components are different - and as a result, some geometry settings.

Thanks again - very informative.
