2018 Jaguar XE Exterior Passenger Side Front Profile vs 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Exterior Driver Side Front Profile

Alfa Romeo has been around for over a century, but for over a decade recently it wasn’t available here in North America. After making its return a few years ago it has steadily increased in popularity, making it a great competitor for Jaguar. Even still, Jaguar has been steadily making quality, premium vehicles for decades here in the States, and they continue to do so today. So, how do the two luxury brands compare to one another? We thought we’d find out by pitting our favorite compact sedan against the popular Alfa Romeo member of the same segment.

In other words, we decided to contrast the 2018 Jaguar XE vs 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia in a side-by-side comparison. We’ve compiled some of the most pertinent specifications into the table below, so you can give it a glance and then read on for more details below.

Advantages of the 2018 XE

As you can see in the table, things kick off in a big way for the Jaguar XE. Power is obviously a very important specification in performance-oriented luxury cars like these, so offering 60 horsepower more gives the XE a big leg up over the Giulia. But it’s not over for the Alfa Romeo sports car, as it fires back in the next row by offering an extra 3 miles per gallon combined. That’s not a game changing difference, but drivers will certainly save some money at the pump over time.

The third row swings things back in the Jaguar XE’s favor as it offers an extra 1.7 cubic feet of space in its trunk, allowing you to fit far more baggage or whatever you need to bring along with you. The fourth row simply shows that both sedans offer seating for the same number of passengers.
