Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 300h 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 300h, the Alfa Romeo Giulia may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Lexus ES 300h 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.
