Comparison Review

Comfort
The Alfa Romeo Giulia offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW M340 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the BMW M340 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Alfa Romeo Giulia as you will with the BMW M340, 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). Based on MSRP, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW M340. 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 M340.

Dimensions
Since the Alfa Romeo Giulia is much wider than the BMW M340, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Alfa Romeo Giulia takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW M340.

Handling
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M340, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is significantly less powerful than the BMW M340. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Alfa Romeo Giulia doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW M340.

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 M340.

Warranty
The Alfa Romeo Giulia comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M340.
