If you are looking for a luxury vehicle, there are several brands that will be able to meet your needs. Brands like Audi are fairly well known while other brands like Alfa Romeo are more exclusive. We see fewer Alfa Romeo models on the road while Audis, there are a lot of them. Exclusivity is certainly one of the things that sets Alfa Romeo apart from Audi, but that’s not all.
Alfa Romeo offers two models with direct rivals at Audi, the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia and the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio which compete with the Audi A4 and the Audi Q5, respectively. That said, it doesn’t matter whether it’s the Giulia or the Stelvio, there is a unique personality to Alfa Romeo vehicles, and this is what sets the Italian automaker’s vehicles apart from Audi. Let’s take a closer look by exploring three differences between Audi and Alfa Romeo.
Better performance in Alfa Romeo
Alfa Romeo offers in the Giulia and Stelvio a more powerful production engine than any rival these two models compete with including the Audi A4 and the Q5. This engine, a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder develops 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque, compared to 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque in the A4 and 261 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque in the Audi Q5.
Needless to say, you will get better performance with Alfa Romeo compared to Audi. Plus, you’ll enjoy a more inspired and fun ride with sharper handling and better sound from the engine. In short, driving an Alfa Romeo is a sportier experience than driver an Audi.
A higher level of luxury
In addition to its better performance, Alfa Romeo offers a more luxurious experience. The seats are standard leather in the Alfa Romeo lineup, and you get optional trims like carbon fiber that you won’t find in the A4 or Q5.
We talked about this previously. Exclusivity should be part of the luxury experience and when you buy an Alfa Romeo you have a vehicle that is different from the rest. A model that stands out and that gets noticed.
Buying a luxury car is a unique experience that should end with a product that meets all of your needs. At Alfa Romeo, you’ll be treated to superior performance, a more luxurious interior and a vehicle you won’t see on every street corner.
