Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 250 than the Alfa Romeo Giulia, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 250, the Alfa Romeo Giulia may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Lexus ES 250 requires fewer visits to 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). Whether you pick the Alfa Romeo Giulia or the Lexus ES 250, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Lexus ES 250.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is about the same width as the Lexus ES 250. 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 Lexus ES 250.

Handling
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lexus ES 250, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Giulia has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 250. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Alfa Romeo Giulia does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 250.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Lexus ES 250.

Warranty
The Alfa Romeo Giulia comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 250.
