2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia vs. Its Competition

2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Alps separate Italy from Germany, but you’d be forgiven for thinking that the Alfa Romeo came from a different continent than the German “defaults.” The BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A4 make for formidable rivals, shaped by decades of meticulous honing.

The BMW’s new this year, even if it doesn’t look it.

Mercedes-Benz injected style into the C-Class and it’s one of our favorites for its stellar balance.

The Audi A4 is loaded with tech and has a spacious, well-crafted interior.

Don’t discount the redesigned Volvo S60.

It’s a shrunken version of the S90 that rebooted Volvo and it’s all the better for it.

The Infiniti QX50 intrigues with its trio of potent turbocharged engines, including a right-priced 400-hp flagship.

Quick Specs
6.4
The 2019 Alfa Romeo is the cognoscenti’s sports sedan, and not just because it’s Italian.
7.0
The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars.
7.0
The 2019 BMW 330i moves back toward the sweet spot in sport-sedan greatness, with M Sport and M editions still to come.
6.2
Handsome and athletic, the 2019 Infiniti Q50 is a sharp luxury sedan alternative to higher priced Germans.
7.0
Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.
The 2019 Volvo S60 should give the "default" German choices a real run for the money.
