Comparison Review

Convenience
The Alfa Romeo Giulia will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45, 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). Based on MSRP, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45. 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45.

Dimensions
Since the Alfa Romeo Giulia is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45.

When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 45. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.
