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.

Convenience
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. 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 Nissan Maxima.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is about the same width as the Nissan Maxima. 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 Nissan Maxima.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Alfa Romeo Giulia transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Maxima.

Performance
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has less horsepower than the Nissan Maxima, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Nissan Maxima.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Alfa Romeo Giulia than that of the Nissan Maxima.
