Alfa Romeo Giulia vs Kia Stinger

If you’re looking for a sporty sedan that adds refinement & customization options inside, then you’re probably cross-shopping several models that fit the bill. Two of the more popular options in North New Jersey are the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Kia Stinger.

They’re both relatively new to the market, but are already heavily seen on roads in our area. Both also have a similar set of premium amenities, but the Giulia gives you more than the Stinger.

For starters, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is available in 6 different trims compared to only 5 for the Kia Stinger. Not to mention the available appearance packages to better personalize your Giulia driving experience.

In terms of making the interior you space, there are 10 design options to choose from in the Giulia including several 2-tone offerings and those with different-colored accent stitching. The Stinger only offers 5 choices, making the Kia a lot less customizable to your personal tastes.

But let’s get into what else truly makes the Alfa Romeo Giulia the superior sporty sedan to the Kia Stinger.

Alfa Romeo Giulia vs Kia Stinger: Performance

Whether it’s driving around town, taking long trips or commuting to work on highways like the NJ Turnpike & Garden State Parkway, there are a lot of jobs you need you car to do. And the Alfa Romeo Giulia is better than the Kia Stinger at all of them.

If you want some more oomph under the hood to let you put the pedal to the metal, the Giulia is the obvious choice. That’s because the onboard 2.0L MultiAir turbocharged 4-cylinder engine delivers 280 hp & 306 lb/ft of torque, while the Kia Stinger’s 2.0L twin scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder only produces 255 hp & 260 lb/ft of torque.

Want to kick it up a notch further? Then, you could opt for the 3.3L twin turbocharged V6 that generates 365 hp & 376 lb/ft of torque for Kia Stinger GT models. But that’s minuscule compared to the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio’s 2.9L all-aluminum twin-turbocharged V6 since this engine delivers a whopping 505 hp & 443 lb/ft of torque.

You would think that offering more power would hinder saving gas, but that’s not the case. In fact, the Giulia is rated at up to an EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway & 24 mpg city while the Stinger only offers up to an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway & 22 mpg city. That means the Kia gets left in the dust in all performance aspects.

Alfa Romeo Giulia vs Kia Stinger: Features

There are several amazing features in both the Alfa Romeo Giulia & the Kia Stinger, but there are a few reasons why our model’s amenity lineup beats out the competition. The first one is that there are only 2 USB ports in the Stinger, 1 up front & 1 in back, but the Giulia has a 3rd USB port inside that’s fully functional to integrate more mobile devices.

Speaking of infotainment, both models have options available. However, the big difference comes in the size of the largest display available which is 8.8” for the Giulia’s widescreen radio that’s significantly larger than the 8.0” touchscreen display for the Stinger. This means you’ll be able to look through your entertainment & navigation options with less eye strain in the Alfa Romeo.

Several features come standard in both the Giulia and the Stinger. However, one that only comes standard in the Alfa Romeo is rain-sensing capability for the windshield wipers that automatically activate when rain or other debris is detected to maintain a clear view of the road ahead.

Last, but not least is the amount of headroom you get inside. If you and/or your loved ones are taller, then the Alfa Romeo Giulia is the better choice since you get 38.6” up front and 37.6” in back. The Kia Stinger only offers 38.3” in the front row and 37.0” in the rear row.

When it comes to the Alfa Romeo Giulia vs Kia Stinger comparison, the Giulia is the clear winner. To find out more about this sporty luxury sedan or to schedule a test drive, contact the team at Ramsey Alfa Romeo today!
