What Car? says...
Most SUVs quietly ignore the fact that the 'S' stands for ‘sportiness’, but you better believe the designers of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio take the word very seriously indeed.
And you have to become a believer too when you find out that the range-topping Stelvio Quadrifoglio (which has its own separate review) comes with a Ferrari-sourced V6 petrol engine, along with beefed-up suspension and brakes.
We'll also give it ratings in all those areas and compare it with other models you might be considering. After all, the main rivals include some impressive cars, including the Audi Q5, the BMW X3, the Jaguar F-Pace and the Porsche Macan.
Once you’ve decided whether the Stelvio or another model is the right car for you, you can make sure you're getting it for the lowest price by searching our free What Car? New Car Deals pages. It's a good place to find the best new large SUV deals.
Alfa Romeo might not be renowned for its reliability as a brand, but the Stelvio did rather well in our most recent What Car? Reliability Survey gaining sixth place out of 32 large SUVs.
No, but the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio (QV) has 503bhp and a 0-62mph time of just 3.8sec so it certainly has the pace to worry supercars.
As a cash purchase, the Stelvio is priced similarly to the Audi Q5, the BMW X3 and the Land Rover Discovery Sport but its residual values are relatively poor. You can check the latest prices on our New Car Deals pages.
