Alfa Romeo vs Mercedes-Benz

South Carolina drivers looking to add a bit of flavor to their lives often choose to purchase European luxury vehicles. However, the European luxury market has traditionally been dominated by German brands known for their high prices, anodyne character and lack of truly distinctive luxury. While brands such as Mercedes-Benz offer vehicles with well-known logos, the cars and SUVs behind the famous symbol are often indistinguishable from other German car types. Instead, Greenville drivers in search of a true European luxury experience must look to the south of the continent and Alfa Romeo's Italian passion.

Alfa Romeo vehicles offer the distinctive performance characteristics, standout design and upscale interiors which their continental rivals lack. From precise engineering to unique looks to innovative technological offerings, Alfa Romeo models have everything that is needed for a true luxury experience. And with both regular and Quadrifoglio variants available, drivers can choose their preferred style of European luxury. Contact your local Alfa Romeo dealer for details.

Engineered for Performance

Performance is a key aspect of luxury vehicles. For many brands, though, performance both starts and ends with the engine. Alfa Romeo, however, goes beyond the powerplant to engineer the entire vehicle to achieve optimal performance. From profile to design to materials, Alfa Romeo vehicles take a thorough, holistic approach to generating high-performance capabilities.

Alfa Romeo performance starts with a near 50/50 distribution of weight between the front and the rear. This means that Alfa Romeo vehicles boast exceptional handling, whether on the race track or the roads of Anderson. For an even more exciting ride, drivers can choose between one of three different drive modes to customize their vehicle's performance to ride conditions.

Most Alfa Romeo vehicles work their magic with a 2-liter four-cylinder engine making 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. Quadrifoglio models, however, add two cylinders to produce 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. All engines partner with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Engineered for Luxury

On many German vehicles such as Mercedes-Benz models, upper trims offer fine features such as leather seating. But the lowest-priced models may come full of cloth and plastic, significantly diminishing the luxury feel of the vehicle. On Alfa Romeo vehicles, however, fine interior materials are available even on the base trims. This means that any Alfa Romeo vehicle carries the true Italian luxury feel that makes the lineup unique.

Spartanburg drivers looking for a sportier feel for their luxury vehicle can choose Alfa Romeo's Quadrifoglio models, draped in generous quantities of carbon fiber. Light yet strong, carbon fiber is a well-known performance material. Many luxury brands, including Mercedes-Benz, offer carbon fiber as an available accent material on certain trims. Yet since performance is a comprehensive aspect of Alfa Romeo vehicles, the brand uses a carbon fiber driveshaft as standard on every vehicle. And with options such as carbon fiber seats and steering wheel, drivers can even more thoroughly optimize their vehicles for performance.

Engineered for Excitement

Greenville drivers far too often assume that European luxury vehicles must be nondescript German models, turning heads on account of their front badge and nothing else. Fortunately, this is not the case. Alfa Romeo vehicles bring style and excitement to the European luxury market in a way that their more staid German rivals cannot. From design to performance to their wide variety of standard and available features, Alfa Romeo vehicles stay ahead of the pack compared to European luxury models such as Mercedes-Benz.
