What alternatives should I consider to a used Alfa Romeo Giulia saloon?
The Jaguar XE puts a similar emphasis on being very nice to drive as the Giulia does, thanks in no small part to its clever suspension that soaks up bumps with aplomb. However, it does take up a lot of space, which means the boot is on the small side and rear leg room is poor.
Remarkably, a used BMW 3 Series is cheaper than an equivalent Giulia. This is most likely due to the fact that the 3 Series is quite old now, although it's still one of the best executive cars you can buy.
