Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Charger than the Alfa Romeo Giulia, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Dodge Charger 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 Dodge Charger, 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). The Alfa Romeo Giulia is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Charger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Dodge Charger have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a little narrower than the Dodge Charger, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Dodge Charger.

Handling
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Charger, 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 Dodge Charger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has much less torque than the Dodge Charger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Alfa Romeo Giulia than that of the Dodge Charger.
