Italian carmakers have a passionate approach to design and performance, and this perspective informs everything about the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. With the Stelvio, the Alfa Romeo brand has used its uniquely Italian outlook to create a small crossover SUV notable for its shapely exterior design and rewarding handling.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio first arrived on dealer lots for the 2018 model year. This compact luxury crossover seats five passengers and shares a platform with a sought-after sports car: Alfa Romeo’s Giulia sedan. The Stelvio holds the distinction of being the first crossover added to Alfa Romeo’s lineup since the brand’s return to the U.S. It provides rewarding handling, and it’s equipped with a wealth of standard features.
When it comes to its exterior design, the Stelvio’s curvy lines and elegant aesthetic give it a chic, voluptuous appearance. In front, a vertical grille angles downward into the front bumper. The Stelvio’s profile reveals an organic silhouette, with slim windows and a rounded roofline.
Stelvio passengers will find an interior design that’s more muted than that of the crossover’s exterior. Still, the cabin exudes a reasonable amount of panache, with handsome circular air vents and a stylish center console. The front row provides good comfort, but taller passengers may feel cramped in the rear seats.
As far as cargo space goes, the Stelvio is underwhelming. It offers less room for your groceries and luggage than some rival models.
Enthusiasts will love the Stelvio’s performance, and this crossover’s driving dynamics set it apart from the pack. Its reflexes are sharp, and it comes with turbocharged engine choices that provide a surplus of power. The Stelvio was introduced with an eight-speed automatic transmission. As with the Giulia sports car, a high-performance Quadrifoglio variant is offered for those who want exceptionally thrilling handling.
When it was first launched, the Stelvio came with standard comfort and convenience amenities like xenon headlights, a power liftgate, a flat-bottomed leather-wrapped steering wheel and power-adjustable front seats. On the tech front, all of these early models are equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for easy smartphone integration, as well as an infotainment system that utilizes a 7-inch display screen. The options list includes a dual-pane sunroof, and the Ti trim adds amenities like heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
As you’d expect, the Stelvio provides a competitive range of active safety features. Stelvio models come standard with a rearview camera and rear parking sensors. They also offer a blind-spot monitoring system, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning as commonly optional equipment.
The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is available solely with all-wheel drive, but a rear-wheel-drive base model joined the lineup in 2019.
Alfa Romeo’s Stelvio is typically cross-shopped against small luxury crossovers like the Porsche Macan, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Jaguar F-Pace. These are all highly desirable choices, but the Stelvio should be considered for its lush styling and bracing performance.
