For families who want sporty luxury sedans and insist on premium quality, comfort, and luxurious niceties, leasing the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia and the 2022 Infiniti Q50 fits the bill.
Do you want to lease something a tad more different in the small luxury sedan segment? While every other small luxury sedan seems more like a mirrored image of the next beside it, the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia and the 2022 Infiniti Q50 are some of the few that stand out from the pack.
These small luxury sedans afford distinctive styling, driver-focused interior, and athletic demeanor. Compared to many other options in the class, including the top dogs from the big German brands, the 2022 Giulia and the 2022 Q50 are compelling options. However, how do these two great options stack against each other? Will you get a better and sportier luxury sedan with the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia lease deal than leasing the 2022 Infiniti Q50?
In a parking space filled with many luxury small sedans, the 2022 Giulia will easily stand out from the crowd, thanks to its Italian roots.
For 2022, the Giulia remains largely unchanged, continuing as part of the first generation that debuted in 2017. However, Alfa has made some noteworthy changes in the new Giulia. The Ti Sport trim level now makes way for the new Veloce trim in the 2022 Giulia lineup. Other impressive upgrades in the new Giulia includes an updated infotainment system with standard navigation and wireless phone charger, heated front and rear seats, and auto-dimming rearview mirror. More standard driver-assist tech features are now standard in the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia, including adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam headlamps, blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, and lane-departure warning. While the Giulia has always been an outstanding choice in this class, its new host of features helps it compete even better when stacked against the big boys of German descent.
Even though most shoppers’ attention is gradually drifting towards sporty SUVs, the 2022 Infiniti Q50, the last standing sedan from the Infiniti brand, still woos shoppers with its effortless blend of sportiness and luxurious appointments.
For 2022, the Infiniti Q50 witnesses some lineup adjustment and upgraded features. The previous base model, the Q50 Pure trim, is now out of the 2022 Q50 lineup, making the Luxe trim the new base model. Also, the mid-range Signature Edition has been discontinued. The adjustment in the 2022 Q50 entry-level means a higher starting price, but it also offers more standard luxe niceties, including leather upholstery, a power-adjustable steering column, and a 16-speaker Bose stereo system, which is now standard across all trim levels. Besides the 16-speaker Bose stereo system, a Wireless Apple CarPlay is standard across the 2022 Q50 lineup.
Although the Infiniti has gone for nearly eight years without any major refresh, it is still a decent option in the entry-level luxury sedan.
The Giulia used to be the most powerful engine in the segment, but not anymore. If you want to get more power, leasing the 2022 Infiniti Q50 is your best bet. The 2022 Q50 with the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 produces 20 more horses than the 2022 Giulia’s standard 2.0-liter turbo-four.
Transmission is quite different in these cars. While the 2022 Giulia sends power to the RWD and AWD through an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 2022 Q50 utilizes a seven-speed auto.
Every 2022 ALFA Romeo Giulia model is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 280 hp and 306 lb-ft of torque. This engine provides enough power for all activities. It pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers silky and timely shifts.
Under the hood of the latest Infiniti Q50 is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that generates 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.
While these standard powertrains in both sedans have enough grit to satisfy most shoppers, if you want more performance and power, you should consider going for the 2022 Q50 Red Sport 400 model or the 2022 Giulia Quadrifoglio.
Although the 2022 Q50 may provide more horsepower than the standard Giulia, this Infiniti plays second fiddle to the Italian sports sedan when it comes to driving manners.
The 2022 Q50 with the twin-turbo V6 gives a potent and sonorous engine with peppy acceleration, but even with that, the Q50 doesn’t offer the same level of sportiness you get when you lease the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia. Its ride quality is uneasy, despite having an adaptive suspension.
The on-road presence and driving dynamics of the 2022 Giulia is one of a kind. This Italian sports sedan affords a near-perfect blend of luxury and performance. If you’re a driving enthusiast, the 2022 Giulia is the right luxury sedan for you. It packs an agile handling and lively performance with a fuel-efficient powertrain.
Leasing the 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia will give you fewer stops at the gas station than the 2022 Infiniti Q50. The Giulia, with its base powertrain configuration, earns an EPA estimated 24/33 mpg city/highway, while the 2022 Q50 returns 20/29 mpg city/highway.
Inside, you’ll be able to fit the same number of people in either the new Alfa or the new Infiniti sedan. There is enough room in both rows of these sedans, even for taller passengers, but the rear seats are a bit tight. Regardless, the back seats of the 2022 Q50 is a much better place to be than that of the new Giulia.
Cargo space is nearly the same in both sedans. While the new Giulia offers 13.4 cubic feet of trunk space, the Q50 slightly edges it with a 13.5-cubic-foot trunk.
Though the Giulia emphasizes more on style and performance over refinement and space, it still affords a handsome cabin and some luxurious appointments. On the other end, the Q50 gets a well-built cabin with premium materials. Still, neither of these two sedans has what it takes to measure up to the best interiors in the class. They both have lesser standard and tech niceties and feels less refined than other sedans in the class.
The 2022 Alfa Romeo Giulia and 2022 Infiniti Q50 may not be as refined as other sedans in the class, but they are the best bet for enthusiast drivers looking to lease a sporty luxury sedan.
