Looking for a new luxury sedan and performance is your number one priority? There are plenty of options, all vying for your attention with world-class accouterments and vaunted engineering specs. The experts at Alfa Romeo of Omaha have narrowed down a couple of selections with our guide comparing the 2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia vs. BMW 3 Series to help you make a more informed decision. Read on to learn more!



3 Series or Giulia: Performance and Engine Options

Both of these titans of luxury have a 2.0L I-4 turbo engine as their powerplant. They’re both powerful yet efficient machines that will no doubt enhance all your travels on Lincoln roads. If you love more roar from your engine, the top-of-the-line trim for each lineup gives you that blistering increase in performance.

The Giulia Quadrifoglio earns the honor of being named the fastest five-passenger vehicle in the world, generating a whopping 505 hp! The M3 Competition xDrive Sedan from BMW maxes out at 503 hp, yet costs more than the Giulia Quadrifoglio. Dollar for dollar, you’ll see better performance with the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Let’s compare the Alfa Romeo Giulia vs. BMW 3 Series in terms of performance specifications:

2024 Alfa Romeo Giulia

  • 280 hp
  • 306 lb-ft of torque
  • 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds
  • 149 mph top speed

2024 BMW 3 Series

3 Series or Giulia: Handling

Power is one thing, but what about handling? The Alfa Romeo Giulia makes it easier to customize your ride to meet your need for speed. It comes standard with the DNA Drive Mode Selector for a harder or softer suspension. When you opt for the base 3 Series, it’s true that you will enjoy balanced and responsive steering. However, this will require an upgrade to sport-tuned brakes, enhanced steering, and improved suspension systems if you want its performance prowess to match that of the Guilia as you drive in des Moines.
