Best Luxury Small Sedan (Tie): 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia

$37,995 | U.S. News Score: 8.9/10

The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is one of the most important cars in Alfa Romeo’s U.S. comeback. The five-seat compact luxury sedan earns a spot on this list with impressive engine performance and a spirited demeanor. Its 280-horsepower four-cylinder base engine is one of the most powerful in the class.

Upgrade to the Giulia Quadrifoglio and you get a 505-horsepower twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 under the hood. If, however, you’re looking for cabin space or a wealth of interior features, you might want to look at some alternatives to the Giulia. The trade-off for its spectacular performance is tight cabin space, especially for rear-seat passengers.

Though the Giulia doesn't provide the array of advanced safety features that some rivals install as standard equipment, it does earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. It has not been evaluated by the NHTSA.
