Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Alfa Romeo Giulia than in the BMW 530, due to the Alfa Romeo Giulia's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the BMW 530 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 530 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Alfa Romeo Giulia, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Alfa Romeo Giulia will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 530. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Alfa Romeo Giulia is much higher than that for the BMW 530.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is about the same width as the BMW 530. If you go with the Alfa Romeo Giulia, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 530.

Handling
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW 530, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 530.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Alfa Romeo Giulia transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 530.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the BMW 530.

Warranty
The Alfa Romeo Giulia comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 530.
