When it comes to buying a luxury vehicle, our team at Alfa Romeo of Santa Monica knows just how hard it can be to make the right choice. Fortunately, every Alfa Romeo Giulia review helps to show how well it stands up against comparable BMW 5 Series models.

Today, we’d like to show how the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio sedan matches up against the 2021 BMW 530i sedan. We think you’ll find that the Alfa Romeo option provides some distinct advantages when matched up head-to-head.

One of the Best Engines in the Segment

Let’s start with what’s under the hood because performance is one notable area where the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio stands out. Its 2.0-liter V6 engine is capable of producing a whopping 505 horsepower, 443 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 191 mph.

The BMW 530i, meanwhile, comes with a respectable 2.0-liter engine that tops out at 248 horsepower, 248 lb-ft, and 130 mph. That’s a massive difference and a huge advantage for those doing their shopping with an Alfa Romeo dealer.

A Body Built for Speed and Performance

The Alfa Romeo Giulia doesn’t just boast a strong engine, but also other build elements that make it work so well for speed and performance. It includes a carbon-fiber driveshaft that reduces overall weight without compromising durability.

The BMW 530i, meanwhile, uses more traditional manufacturing materials, which can limit its top-end performance capabilities.

Test-Driving an Alfa Romeo Giulia

We would love for you to pay us a visit sometime in the near future to take the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia for a test drive. It really is a great car despite tough competition in its segment, but you’ll get to know that for sure if you try one for yourself!
