4 Reasons You Should Buy An Alfa Romeo

We are all familiar with the popular car brands like Mazda, Honda, and Nissan, but there is one car brand people seem to keep forgetting, and we aren’t quite sure why. The Alfa Romeo brand has unique and iconic styling, all of the features you want from a brand new car, and they are surprisingly affordable. So why is it so uncommon to see one? Whatever the reason may be, if you’re looking to buy a new car, buying an Alfa Romeo is your chance to stand out.

They are priced well

The first time I saw an Alfa Romeo I wasn’t entirely sure what it was. They look like high-end, high-quality luxury cars, and more importantly, they looked like something that was way out of my budget. So when I hopped online to check out prices, I was pretty surprised to find they weren’t toting the high price tag I expected.

The cars in the Alfa Romeo lineup vary in price, but there aren’t many vehicles to choose from. You can buy the SUV Stelvio for around $41,400 making it not even the most expensive SUV on the market and giving it a surprisingly competitive price.

The manufacturer’s sedan, the Giulia, has a starting price of about $39,400 making it higher than some other sedans available but right in the realm of entry-level luxury cars where it belongs.

They are unique

The Alfa Romeo brand isn’t as common as so many others, but they have an iconic front diamond grille that ties them together to make them distinguishable to the brand.

Chances are you won’t park next to another Alfa Romeo in your work parking lot, or really drive past many on the streets. You’ll be proud to claim this odd and unique looking car as it stands out from the competition.

They have a lot to offer

The Alfa Romeo lineup isn’t very big, but the small range that they have offers a whole lot of luxury and style. There are really only three vehicles in the Alfa Romeo lineup, a sedan, an SUV and a sports car. Instead of creating a wide range of vehicles, Alfa Romeo decided to keep its options limited so that it could focus on making the cars the best possible.

If you’re looking for a unique and fun sports car, the Alfa Romeo 4C is the option for you. It’s got a unique style and lightweight design make it stand out amongst the Corvette and Mustang crowd, and the handling is unlike almost anything else – except maybe a Mazda MX-5 Miata or Lotus Elise.

Is a family car your goal? Alfa Romeo has a striking SUV, the Stelvio, that has enough space for your kids and all of their soccer bags. A sedan for a daily driver? The Giulia surely won’t leave you disappointed.

Because you can

What better reason to buy a car is there than saying “because I can?” Okay, maybe there are a lot better reasons, but for an Alfa Romeo that might just be enough. You could buy a standard Mazda SUV or Nissan sedan, but why would you, when you could buy an Alfa Romeo?

Even the name sounds exotic and expensive, and chances are many people won’t even know what the car is. Is it a luxury car? An exotic? They’ll have to see it to find out. They fall into the category of cars that look, feel, and sound expensive but are actually quite affordable.
