Specs at a Glance

Alfa Romeo and Porsche are some of the most well-loved sports car manufacturers of all time, and they continue to contour the market with their lineup of vehicles. We compare the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, a stylish and driver-focused SUV, to the performance-oriented but practical 2021 Porsche Macan AWD.


The performance of these compact SUVs varies greatly depending on what trim you opt for. In the Alfa Romeo, you can choose from a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine, or you can upgrade to a 2.9L V6 engine. These powertrains give the 2021 Stelvio a power range between 280 hp in the base model to 505 hp in the Stelvio Quadrifoglio. The Macan's power figures are a bit more subdued than the ones found on the Italian. The Macan produces 248 hp in the base trim and up to 434 hp if you opt for the Macan Turbo. The Macan makes up for this power difference with its legendary PDK transmission. The PDK allows the Macan to change gears in a fraction of a second, which leads to an incredibly linear feeling powertrain.


When it comes to these compact SUVs' looks, they share a lot of similar design philosophies but implement them in different ways. Both vehicles have similar ratios and have a slightly sloping rear end to add to the modern aesthetic of each. The Porsche goes for a more subdued overall look that will blend in if you don't get it in a flashy color. On the other hand, the designers at Alfa Romeo decided to accentuate the Stelvio curves, and in return, they have produced a vehicle with a boisterous personality. These design decisions work perfectly with the driving dynamics of each vehicle.


Both vehicles can be had with all of the latest tech features that you would expect to find on a sport-luxury vehicle. The tech found in the Macan is a bit more intuitive, but everything in both vehicles is functional. You will love how soulful the exhaust note of the Alfa Romeo sounds when you put the pedal to the metal. It truly gives you the full Italian exotic experience.
