Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Alfa Romeo Giulia than the Nissan Maxima. The Nissan Maxima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

The Nissan Maxima 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). The Alfa Romeo Giulia is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Maxima.

The Destination Charge for the Alfa Romeo Giulia is much higher than that for the Nissan Maxima.
