2021 BMW M3 Competition vs. Giulia Quadrifoglio at Alfa Romeo of Oakville
Engineered to ignite excitement in the fullest sense, the BMW M3 Competition and Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio represent the top of each luxury sedan’s respective trim level. Both vehicles are crafted especially for the true luxury car connoisseur and though they do line up each other similarly in terms of their price tag, with the M3 Competition starting at $88,300, and the Giulia Quadrifoglio starting at $92,490. However, putting these super sedans next to each other inevitably raises the question, which one is superior? Luckily, the team at Alfa Romeo of Oakville has done the work for you. If you’re going to indulge in one of these astonishing vehicles, we’ve broken down the key information. Read on with us as we compare the 2021 BMW M3 Competition to the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.
The M3 Competition arrives with excitement as it is all-new for 2021, however, arguably the most polarizing feature of the M3 Competition is the redesign that the front fascia underwent. The once iconic kidney grilles are now flipped vertically and have had their size increased dramatically. Though sporting classic Euro styling on the rear, and luxurious, sporty touches like a carbon fibre roof and M sports accents throughout, bluntly put, the M3 competition has styling that isn’t for everyone.
Seductive with it’s unique styling, the Guilia Quadrifoglio appears luxurious, aerodynamic, and classy, truly what every high-end sedan strives to be. With its compelling V Scudetto grille, quad exhaust outlets and additional available carbon fibre accents, the Quadrifoglio proves itself as a top tier choice. Exclusive to the Quadrifoglio trim is available 19” wheels in both light and dark aluminum colours for an even sportier stance. For a more aggressive appearance, also available is the Neo Edizione package offering a darker appearance for the grille, mirror caps and wheels.
Impressive as it blends sportiness with luxury, the interior of the 2021 BMW M3 Competition is of course outfitted with “M” badging and trim. Though there are high-quality materials throughout the cabin, the interior of the M3 Competition is quite similar to that of the standard 3 series. The interior is beautiful, however with the price tag and the power creeping under the hood, the M3 Competition should look a bit racier than it does.
Fully loaded with carbon fibre enhancements, sporty accents, and leather upholstery, the interior of the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio makes you feel like you’re truly sitting in a racecar. From the perforated leather-wrapped shifter, to an available carbon fibre steering wheel and available Sparco Carbon Fibre Race Seats, the Giulia Quadrifoglio can be outfitted to feel right at home on the track as you sit and marvel in the cockpit.
Performance between these two top tier sedans is where the competition gets tight, with their similar engines, power and torque. Both models come with one transmission option, an 8-speed automatic (the M3’s 6-speed manual is not available on the M3 Competition). Though the numbers are tight, it’s worthwhile to note that the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s top speed shatters that of the M3 Competition. However, if you do choose the available M Driver’s package, the M3 Competition does max out at 290km/h.
