Alfa Romeo Giulia 2021 vs Mercedes-Benz Classe C 2021


2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class: Exclusivity and prestige beyond compare

Some luxury car buyers might prefer blending into the background, and that's fine. Others, however, want their car to rise above the ocean of bland sedans and be a true representation of their personality. Flamboyance is not what we're going for, the goal is exclusivity and beauty.

The Giulia is unique

All other cars in this segment are cold and hard, lifeless even. The Alfa Romeo Giulia is emotionally packed, but not overly so. Its sensual curves mask voluntary simplicity where the body lines have a visual function that isn't to distract. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is an extremely common sedan which, as stated, can be a great way to fade into the background.

The Alfa Romeo is, for all intents and purposes, an exotic car. From the new entry-level Sprint trim, the Giulia projects prestige and the impression that the person driving has a unique vision of life.

Beauty and function

The Alfa Romeo Giulia's cabin is another example of inimitable designs, and proof that craftsmanship is far from a lost art. The multiple surfaces and textures blend beautifully into each other. Beauty does not come at the expense of technology as the Giulia's standard 8.8-inch display screen is exquisitely integrated into the dashboard. The Mercedes-Benz's standard 7-inch unit protrudes awkwardly at the top of the center stack. As well, the Giulia's driver is treated to a cockpit-like driving position that immediately secures an unwavering sense of control.

Other standard features included with the Giulia, which are optional for the C 300, incorporate leather front 10-way power front seats, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, among many others. One element that will not be found in the Mercedes-Benz is the incredibly energizing start button located on the steering wheel.

Superior efficient power

Turbocharged 4-cylinder engines are a way the automotive industry has found to maintain performance levels and increase efficiency. Although both the Mercedes-Benz C 300 and Alfa Romeo Giulia are equipped with such engines, they are evidently not all equal. The Benz's unit delivers 255 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. The Giulia's is far more potent with 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Giulia's superior engine output is only a small part of its unmatched driving experience. The Giulia's la meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion) spirit connects the driver and the car in ways no other can. The Giulia provides the driver with the most direct and precise steering, front Brembo brakes, and a sport-tuned chassis that flawlessly delivers comfort and impressive handling.
