On your marks, set, go! In this article, we’ll compare the 2019 BMW 330i, 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia, 2020 Genesis G70, and 2020 Volvo S60 side by side to see differences in performance, styling, features and more.


2019 BMW 330i



The 2019 BMW 330i has been remodeled with new technology, mild design and boasts several new structural changes. It betters its predecessor in every way; technology, performance, interior, makes the 2019 version a marked improvement. The chassis is wider and stiffer and the BMW has also revised the steering wheel. This new series is a little bit longer and has increased trunk space. Although it is not a game-changer, the 2019 BMW 330i is still a great luxury car and sports sedan.


Performance

The new 330i is a 2.0-liter turbo inline-four-cylinder engine that delivers an excellent 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque which is over 7 horsepower and 37 pounds-feet of torque over the 2018 model of the car. This puts BMW among the list of automakers that are making decent power engine that is economical. While this series doesn’t have a manual transmission, the 330i is estimated to reach 60 mph in 5.6 seconds.


Styling

BMW 330i is a techy car with a stylish interior but it’s still not as fabulous as its Audi and Mercedes rivals. It has a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 10.25-inch multimedia touchscreen that has voice command and also via gestures.



Fans would be impressed with the Intelligent Personal Assistant that allows you to say “Hey BMW” followed by your command. And if she understands this command, get ready to be thrilled by interior illumination and other gesture control. The 330i trunk provides 17.0 cubic feet of cargo room, which gives it a big advantage over other competitors.


Handling

There are so many positive aspects of the 2019 BMW 330i and the new steering system impressed. The 330i has a good structure in the handling and comfort departments; the more you turned the faster it drove. The steering is still too heavy but with minimal efforts, you can get the results you want. Drivers can enjoy the fantasy of not touching the wheel as it has a small camera in the instrument cluster that guides the car down the highway in one lane and makes sure the driver is paying attention.



Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2019 BMW 330i comes with a wide array of advanced driver-assistance technology such as In-Vehicle Assistance Service (BMW Assist eCall), LED low/high beam, directional adaptive headlights, and lane departure warning. IHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) rates this vehicle exceptional based on performance in high-speed front and side crash tests.


Final thoughts

The 2019 BMW 330i is an improved version of previous models, with stronger technology and sleek looking designs. It has an ultra-modern look thanks to the rear styling and aesthetic elements that perfectly suit the car. It has dynamic handling of smooth power. The 330i’s extended traffic jam assistant works at a speed of less than 37 mph on limited-access highways. The 330i’s engine remains a 2.0-liter twin-scroll single-turbo and lightweight (about 121 pounds lighter than previous models) makes it ideal for sports.


2019 ALFA ROMEO GUILA



The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia comes in two main trims: Giulia and Giulia Quadrifoglio. These two different yet distinct cars are remarkable. The Giulias model comes with a drive-mode selector with three unique settings: Dynamic, Natural, and Advanced Efficiency—cleverly making the acronym DNA—each of which alters the car's transmission, engine management, and steering feel.


Performance

The 2019 Giulia is powered by a standard 2.0-liter turbo-4at 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque. Quadrifoglio (meaning, four-leaf clover in Italian) models come with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 rated at thundering 505 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque and it’s only available in an eight-speed and rear-wheel drive automatic transmission.


Styling



The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia brings Italian flair to the midsize luxury sedan market. The interior of the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia brings Italian flair to the Fiat Chrysler sedan market. It comes with some wonderful elements that are made from premium materials. You’ll find soft-touch plastics, elegantly styled cabin, polished with textured metallic or wood trimmings. Its comfortable seats are well-bolstered and designed with high-quality leather. Unfortunately, its cargo space is only about 13 cubic feet of space which are quite small compared to its rival. All the same, it’s a win looking at the price tag.


Handling

The Alfa Romeo Giulia sport sedan boasts brisk acceleration and agile handling. Even at the 8-wheel standard engine and rear-wheel drive, the Giulia records about 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway which is about the average fuel economy estimates for the luxury small car class. For all-wheel drive, those figures drop to 26/31 mpg city/highway while the optional twin-turbo V6 engine delivers an EPA-estimated 17/25 mpg city/highway.



Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia comes with a wide array of advanced driver-assistance technology such as the standard automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with a semi-autonomous driving mode that guarantee a more confident ride.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for a portable, modern-day sports-sedan and don’t prioritize rear-seat space, you should consider purchasing the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia. However, you may consider the 2019 BMW 330i for a more luxurious interior and spacious rear-seat space.


2020 GENESIS G70



Known as the underdog of Luxury sports sedan, the 2020 Genesis G70 is a stylish mid-range sports car that comes with impressive features. Smooth handling, stylish interior, spacious rear seat, and quick-shifting transmission all contribute to the excitement that can be found in Mercedes C-class and BMW 3 series both of which cost more and are not as much fun to drive. The G70 confidently unseats the BMW 3 series with as it offers more power and better dynamics.


Performance

The 2020 Genesis G70 features a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that delivers 252 horsepower through an eight-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels and 255 horsepower on the manual transmission. There’s also a twin-turbo 3.3-liter 6-cylinder model that delivers 365 horsepower and 376 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough speed to make your heart race.


Styling

Onsight, the Genesis G70 is already making good impressions. Although the G70’s interior is not the best we see in the BMW 3 Series and the Mercedes C-class, its quilted leather seats and generous touches of brushed aluminum and stainless steel makes it an affordable luxury.


Handling

The G70 has precise and banded steering feedback that offers a balanced ride thanks to its adjustable handling features. After a series of testing, the luxury sports car retained its balance during cornering sessions. What’s more, its suspension smoothed out uneven surfaces. With the 2.0-liter engine, rear-wheel drive and six-speed automatic transmission, the 2020 Genesis G70 is expected to run 18 miles per gallon city, 28 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined. And if you prefer the all-wheel-drive models and you’ll get 20 mpg city, 27 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined. Opt for the eight-speed manual, the 2.0-liter engine is estimated to return a whopping 22 miles per gallon city, 30 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined.



Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2020 Genesis G70 comes with a wide array of advanced driver-assistance technology such as the standard automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control with a semi-autonomous driving mode that guarantee a more confident ride. However, as at the time of writing this post, the G70 has not been crash-tested by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) or NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration).


Final Thoughts

The 2020 Genesis G70 is one of the most impressive luxury sedan cars. With classy interior styling, super engine strength, sharp handling, and excellent technology, the G70 is a genuine affordable mid-range sports car in virtually all aspects.


2020 VOLVO S60



Volvo is one of the oldest car manufacturers in the world and so its name stands as a surety for this model. 2020 makes the second model year of the S60, the second generation of Volvo’s luxury sport sedan.

It is 5 inches longer than the previous model and it features an interior designed to tailor your needs.

This model competes fiercely with the BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Genesis G70, and Audi A4 model cars in terms of design, power, and speed but its frustrating infotainment and small trunk are a few downsides.


Performance

The new 2020 Volvo S60 has an impressive driving performance. The S60 is an efficient power plant; hybrid systems pairing a 10.4 kW-hr battery and rear electric motor with the twin-charged version of that 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

Final thoughts

One of the 2020 Volvo S60’s strongest points is the styling – the reason it stands out firmly from its competitors and why most people prefer it to others. The 2020 S60 rocks a distinctive

Scandinavian exterior design and it’s relatively cheap compared to its competitors. It also stands out in terms of luxury and has sophisticated technological features such as panoramic roof, rain-sensing wipers, LED headlights and a fully digitalized instrument cluster. Its design is to die for and recommended for those with minimalist yet modern style taste for a car.
