Beautiful beyond belief and designed to highlight the most excellent Italian aspects of driving, the Stelvio is the drivers choice for their compact SUV.

Specs at a Glance


When it comes to the basics, the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio stands tall against its German rivals. The Stelvio comes with a standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces a stunning 280hp that gets from zero to sixty in a blinding five point four seconds. (5.4!) The driving dynamics of the Stelvio are already legendary, with car reviewers praising the Stelvio endlessly. The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes with an adjustable drive switch which will change driving modes to give you the control you crave. The performance-oriented BMW X3 has a standard 28 model engine that produces 240hp. In fairness, you can upgrade the X3 engine to a V6 that will produce 355hp, or a sport modeled "M" version -- it will cost an arm and a leg, however, compared to the Stelvio.


There is no more impressive vehicle on the road than the Alfa Romeo. The Italian artists and designers responsible for the 2018 Stelvio's appearance designed the vehicle to be beautiful and functional, keeping the drag coefficient as low as possible while still retaining its pleasing shape.
