Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid 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 Hybrid, the Alfa Romeo Giulia may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Toyota Avalon Hybrid 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a little wider than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Hybrid.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Giulia has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Alfa Romeo Giulia does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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 Hybrid.

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 Hybrid.
