From Alfa Romeo to Volkswagen, there are plenty of automakers that would love to take down the new 3 Series.
Launched in 2016, the Alfa Romeo Giulia is still a relatively new player in the premium saloon segment. With powerful engines offering up to 505 bhp and chic looks, the Italian model is on par with BMW.
The Giulia is a bit shorter at roughly 4.64 metres, but that should hardly bother anyone. Like the 3 Series, all-wheel drive is available for buyers in climates where the extra traction is a selling point.
