Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Stelvio is priced similarly to rivals like the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Land Rover Discovery Sport and generous discounts are available from dealers, as well as through our hassle-free New Car Buying Service. 

It is, though, not expected to hold onto its value as well as those rivals after three years, and, with no hybrid or plug-in hybrid in the range, none of the engines will prove especially cost-effective as a company car. Like its conventional petrol and diesel rivals, the Stelvio will sit in the higher benefit-in-kind tax brackets. Its official fuel economy is also very similar to that of its rivals.

Reliability

The Stelvio didn’t feature individually in the 2020 What Car? Reliability Survey, but Alfa Romeo as a brand finished in a very respectable 11th place out of the 31 brands featured. While the duration of the brand’s warranty is a fairly standard three years, it’s worth noting that there are no mileage restrictions.

Safety and security

Overview

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio offers alluring looks, entertaining handling and a decent equipment list. For the money, though, there are better all-rounders that have more polished interiors, even better driving dynamics with a more comfortable ride, and more space inside.

  • Good to drive
  • Uncomplicated infotainment
  • Smooth automatic gearbox
  • Rear space not as generous as rivals
  • Fidgety low-speed ride
  • Noisy diesel engines
