Explore the differences between these two luxury sedans in the guide below.



3 Series or Giulia: Performance Comparison

Alfa Romeo and BMW are both known for their high-performance vehicles, and you’ll find identical standard 2.0L I-4 engines under the hood of both the 2022 Giulia and 3 Series. However, you’ll see that the Giulia pulls ahead in terms of horsepower, torque, and acceleration power. Both models also come with upgraded engines–the Giulia Quadrifoglio reaches 505 horsepower while the BMW M3 reaches 505 horsepower at a significantly higher price tag. Here are the standard engine specs for both sedans:

2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia

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

2022 BMW 3 Series

  • 255 hp
  • 295 lb-ft of torque
  • 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds

3 Series or Giulia: Handling Comparison

Now that we’ve gone over the performance specs, let’s compare how the Alfa Romeo Giulia and BMW 3 Series handle on the Keller roads. The Giulia makes it a bit easier to customize your ride based on your unique needs, with BMW Drive Mode Selector coming standard on all models. The BMW 3 Series offers similar sport brakes and enhanced steering, but only with a costly upgrade to the M3 models. Here are the details:

2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia

  • Standard DNA Drive Mode Selector for Dynamic, Natural, and Advanced Efficiency driving modes.
  • Carbon fiber driveshaft enables near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution and superb handling.
