Alfa's compact luxury-sport sedan corners and steers like a sports car, which makes it fun to drive. Still, it's filled with everyday annoyances, such as its unintuitive controls. The 280-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and provides punchy acceleration even in the all-wheel-drive version. The firm ride absorbs most bumps, but it's less plush than many competitors. Fuel economy at 27 mpg overall is among the best in the class. The attractive interior has matte wood and nicely textured surfaces, but some switchgear is cheap. The convoluted infotainment system is distracting to use. Seat comfort is compromised by a short cushion and limited range of adjustments, and the cabin isn't as quiet as that of its peers. The high-performance Quadrifoglio version is even sportier, but at the expense of comfort.

Alfa Romeo Giulia 2018
The Giulia is Alfa's entry in the compact-luxury-sport-sedan segment. It corners and steers like a sports car, making it fun to drive. The 280-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four is mated to an eight-speed automatic and provides punchy acceleration even in the all-wheel-drive version. Ride comfort is civilized even though it has a firm edge. Fuel economy at 27 mpg overall is one of the best in the class. The interior is attractive with matte wood and nicely textured surfaces but cheap switchgear detracts. The infotainment system is too convoluted and distracting. Seat comfort is compromised by a short cushion and limited range of adjustments. The trunk is small. The top-trim, high-performance Quadrifoglio version uses a 505-hp, 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 and ups the ante in the sport quotient at the expense of comfort.
