Featuring a high-end cabin and exceptional safety features, the 2019 Volvo S90 is one of the top rated cars in the market. On the other hand, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia gives a good competition to S90, but fails to impress with overall specification. Here's a brief comparison.

Design & Style

The 2019 Giulia  can seat up to 5 people, with the rear seats offering cramped space for adults. The front seats are somewhat better and more supportive than back seats. The interior of this car is strongly built and stylish but lacks the consistency that should be provided by a luxury model.

The 2019 Volvo S90 is a stylish sedan with well-cushioned and supportive front seats, which is comfortable even for longer drives. Also, the rear seats are cozy and plush, with generous amount of headroom and legroom on offer. It has to be one of the best interiors, in comparison to vehicles of its class.

Technology & Safety

Some standard features in the 2019 Alfa Romeo Guilia include an infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, 8-speaker system, USB ports, Bluetooth and a 6.5-inch display. The infotainment system is easy to use, but you may find it difficult to change some settings, as they are hidden under multiple layers of menus. Couple of standard safety features with Giulia include a rearview camera and parking sensors.

Sensus infotainment system is the key highlight of the 2019 Volvo S90, which include a 9-inch touch screen functionality, USB port, Bluetooth, 10-speaker stereo, satellite radio and HD radio. Most of the functionality is managed by touch-screen, and the system is quite easy to use. Some standard safety features include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, rear collision warning and blind spot monitoring.


Speaking of performance, the 2019 Giulia comes standard with a 280-HP turbo-4 engine that is decent enough for quick acceleration. However, it fails to impress in terms of fuel efficiency. For the 2019 Volvo S90, there are two engine options, with the entry level being a 316-HP turbo-four engine. All-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission come standard. Not only do you get a smoother acceleration, but also higher fuel efficiency compared to other rivals.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Volvo S90 is one exceptional car.

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia is a tale of two cars. When it comes to performance, this Italian sports sedan is hard to beat without getting a pure sports car. However, many class rivals provide more luxurious and spacious interiors, which is why the Giulia finishes in the middle of our luxury small car rankings.
