2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA vs. 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia


With a base powertrain that is energetic, refined, and fuel-efficient, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA has established itself in the world of luxury small cars. It also has a large trunk to accommodate passenger belongings.

The major change made by the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia when compared to its competitors is the reshuffle of features for its various trim levels. It gives a thrilling performance, and has a user-friendly infotainment system as well.

Design & Style

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA is a car with a five-seating capacity. It comes in a standard synthetic leather upholstery for its seats and brings comfort to passengers. The entire cabin feels upscale too, and this is a proof that the Mercedes-Benz meets expectations in terms of design and style. There is plenty of cargo space in it, in fact, even better than those offered by rivals.

As for 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia, you will notice how appealing the exterior is. It comes packed with components ranging from automatic wipers to a set of 17-inch alloy wheels. It is blessed with xenon headlights too. Styling is good for the interior but it falls short in terms of headroom, thus taller passengers may not be accommodated unless they are willing to suffer a stiff neck after a long ride.

Technology & Safety

Packed with a usable infotainment system, the CLA has now integrated smartphone capabilities like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There are air bags and a rearview camera for your safety. It also comes packed with other driver aids like forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitoring, active brake assist, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia struggles a bit in terms of technology and safety features. It is true that it has been given navigation and audio systems, but these technologies are not as great as expected. Even driver aids come with a price.


Reaching a maximum power for 280 horses, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is defeated by the CLA with a maximum output of 375 horsepower. It is also more fuel efficient since the CLA can rake scores of up to 37mpg for highway driving, whereas the Giulia only reaches a maximum of 33mpg for highway driving. Both cars are tied at 24mpg for city driving.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia may be pleasing to look at, but all other qualities are not as pleasant as those found in the CLA. The latter is a much better choice, not just for its engine performance but also for its enjoyable technologies, and its overall elegant design and sturdy construction.
