2019 BMW 5 Series vs. 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia


The 2019 BMW 5 Series is a sleek automobile with lots of space, luxury features and exceptional performance. But how does it compare to the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia, an Italian car praised for its formidable engines, attractive shape and customizable options?

Design & Style

The Alfa Romeo Giulia is a four door that has been updated with new wheels and trim. Outside, its curves are as smooth as a bottle of high priced champagne, while inside the surfaces are covered in polished aluminum and wood trim. It uses a shield grille in front with headlights that squint, and in the rear a stylish decklid can be seen. Visually, the BMW 5 Series is simply breathtaking. Outside, the nose has been lowered and tapered, with lines extending along the body that are sharper than previous editions. The colors used in the cabin are dark and sophisticated, with premium stitched covered materials and lighting which is ambient.

Technology & Safety

The BMW 5 Series is able to seat five passengers comfortably and safety. It has received the prestigious “Top Safety Pick” award from the IIHS, and now comes with emergency automatic brakes as a standard feature. Other amenities include semi-autonomous control, and within the interior drivers will have access to an instrument cluster that is eight inches, touch screens with ten engines and Bluetooth connectivity. The Alfa Romeo Giulia has performed well during crash tests and is highly regarded both for its safety and comfort, also receiving the Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS. Its most popular features include lane departure notifications, blind area monitoring and cruise control which are adaptive.


Like other famous Italian brands, the Alfa Romeo Giulia offers superb handling and performance. The base model comes with a turbo 4, 280 horsepower engine that transfers power to the back wheels with an automatic eight speed transmission. The BMW 5 Series also comes with a turbo 4 engine, which can produce up to 248 horsepower with 258 pounds of torque, and can accelerate from zero to sixty in approximately 6 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Choosing between these two cars is challenging, since they are similar in many ways. As such, the winner between the two must be determined by the little things, the details. Although the Alfa Romeo Giulia is comparable to the BMW in price, it offers less space, especially in the rear. This is a problem for families, who will want plenty of space for everyone, so the BMW 5 Series is the winner.
