Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE has a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide selection of options, so you can pick and choose those that are right for your budget.

On the highway, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia is comfortable and compliant. 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia with a little extra personality.

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia is the bottom trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that features 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can think of the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with many different additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a bigger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Most of the features found on the upper trim levels can be included with the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL audio system along with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to suit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to create most people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
