Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RLX than the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX, drivers may find the Alfa Romeo Giulia a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Acura RLX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Alfa Romeo Giulia, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura RLX will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Alfa Romeo Giulia, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is about the same width as the Alfa Romeo Giulia. If you go with the Acura RLX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura RLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Handling
The Acura RLX has a significantly larger turning radius than the Alfa Romeo Giulia, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura RLX is somewhat more powerful than the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Warranty
The Acura RLX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Alfa Romeo Giulia.
