Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The standard electrically adjustable seats are easy to adjust and have adjustable lumbar support on all but entry-level Super trim. The steering wheel has plenty of adjustment for rake but fairly limited reach adjustment, so not everyone will be able to find a perfect driving position. 

The analogue instrument dials are clear and simple to read; the 7.0in screen between them can be configured to display information such as sat-nav instructions or driving information, such as economy figures from the trip computer.

Quality

Interior finish has always been a bit of a sticking point with Alfa, but the Stelvio is much stronger in this regard than many other Alfa efforts. The Stelvio uses soft-touch materials for plenty of surfaces, and gives you the option to specify real-wood inserts for prominent locations, such as around the leather-clad gear selector. The optional steering column-mounted aluminium paddle shifters feel of extremely high quality, too.

But, while the interior may generally look good, the buttons and dials you touch on the centre console feel a little loose, and the materials they are made from are cheap feeling.
