Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 350 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 350, the Alfa Romeo Giulia may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 Lexus ES 350, 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). Whether you pick the Alfa Romeo Giulia or the Lexus ES 350, 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 350.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is about the same width as the Lexus ES 350. 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 350.

Handling
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lexus ES 350, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has less horsepower than the Lexus ES 350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Alfa Romeo Giulia transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 350.

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 350.

Warranty
The Alfa Romeo Giulia comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 350.
