Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Alfa Romeo Giulia than the Acura TLX, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Acura TLX, drivers may find the Alfa Romeo Giulia a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TLX as you will with the Alfa Romeo Giulia, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura TLX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Alfa Romeo Giulia. 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 TLX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Dimensions
The Acura TLX is a little wider than the Alfa Romeo Giulia, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Acura TLX, 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 TLX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Handling
The Acura TLX 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
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Acura TLX and the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

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

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