Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon than the Alfa Romeo Giulia, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon, 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). The Alfa Romeo Giulia is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Avalon. 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 Toyota Avalon.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a little wider than the Toyota Avalon, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Toyota Avalon.

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

Performance
The Alfa Romeo Giulia has less horsepower than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon.

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

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