Tesla Model 3 Vs. Alfa Romeo Giulia

OCT 7 2018 BY VANJA KLJAIC 18

Silent performance versus impressive Italian design.

For the most part, Alfa Romeos don’t get the praise they deserve. For us in Europe, the jokes about Alfa Romeo’s poor dependability, packed with the brand’s rather bland models in recent years, have all amounted to us hating what is actually a rich history filled brand. However, in recent years, and especially with the advent of the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Italian carmaker is getting back to the once claimed spot among the greatest cars available on the market today.

This video by Young Tesla gives us a gorgeous dark gray Alfa Romeo Giulia, pitted against a pearl white Tesla Model 3. Silent performance, wrapped in a rather clean & good looking package, but rather bland when compared to the Alfa. On the other hand, the Giulia is filled with perfectly matched design details, a great silhouette, a gorgeous interior, and that exhaust note. While this isn’t the much famed Alfa Romeo Giulia QV, this still does provide some impressive performance.

For those who put a premium on performance, the all-aluminum 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine in the Alfa Romeo delivers 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque. Thanks to a four-wheel drive system, the Giulia will sprint from 0-60mph (0-97km/h) in just 5.1 seconds. On the other hand, the Tesla Model 3 Performance will do the 0-60mph (0-97km/h) run in around just 3.5 seconds.

Above, you will find a quick comparison video, without going in too much depth. Clearly, the Model 3 wins. But it’s impressive how well the Alfa Romeo Giulia hangs. Press play and check the comparison out.

Wrong Alfa Giulia to compare with.

That Alfa is clearly driving on the wrong side of the road!

I’d take the Model 3 but the car to test this against is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio /

Why do I want to look at this guy’s mug for 4 of the 6 minutes?

Yeah, if there were no Tesla, and no global warming, the Alfa would be an excellent car to drive. But, FCA reliability issues have always dogged the Italian brands. Do they have better reliability in Italy?

Salem

Sadly the Alfa is again plagued with reliability problems. Really a shame, I really liked the Gulia Quadrifoglio, but that much power out of such a small engine with known reliability problems.

Alfa Romeo! Not Alfa Romero!🤦‍♂️

Pronouncing words correctly is not his main talent, clearly.

I understand the passion for EVs, but when the guy says the model 3 just needs the windshield washer fluid changed – it’s a blatant mistake.
I don’t feel like watching the video.

Dimitrij

Of course; you do not change the windshield washer fluid – you top it up 🙂

Giulia sold 900 cars in Aug. Model 3 sold 18500. No one is buying the Giulia. You know why? Because it sucks.

Clive

Its not the norm /

Nice design besides the powertrain…

I don’t know if is a good idea to put the look in the ammount of sales to determinate if a car or brand sucks or not.

Salem

The Guilia is a fantastic car but it clearly caters to a niche of enthusiasts and people who want uncommon exciting car, while the TM3 is aimed at the mass market

A colleague once drove me to a meeting with a customer in his AR. I thought there was something wrong with it it was so loud but it was apparently meant to be that loud.
There was however something wrong with it because I never drove in it again because most times we went to that customer, his car was being repaired and I drove him.
The location of his car being mostly in the garage was a topic of humour in the office.

Salem

The joke about Alfas is that they are designed so beautifully, so that you have something nice to look at while you wait for the tow truck.
That aside, if they work you’ll love every second

Undertaker

You won’t.

What a terrible video. Obnoxious soundtrack over the good parts, followed by boring commentary.
