Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Alfa Romeo Giulia than in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to the Alfa Romeo Giulia's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Alfa Romeo Giulia will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class 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). Based on MSRP, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 E-Class.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Alfa Romeo Giulia transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
