2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Vs. Top Rivals

The 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio has a slick Italian design, athletic, sport-inspired handling, and terrific performance output, which gives it much of its ability to compete in this competitive segment. Let’s take a look at a few of the compact crossover SUV’s rivals.

2022 Stelvio vs. BMW X3

Any small or compact luxury SUV is going to have to contend with the BMW X3. The 2022 Stelvio can outperform it at the top Quadrifoglio trim with its turbocharged 2.9-litre, 4-cylinder engine, making 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. The closest engine option at a similar level to the 2022 Stelvio will make just a little more than 380 horsepower. The Stelvio offers a more modern athletic sporty stance, while the X3 has more of a traditional SUV feel.

2022 Stelvio vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC

Compact SUVs built by Mercedes-Benz are another common rival to the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, particularly the GLC Class. On the performance front, the current Stelvio’s top engine option will outperform each GLC trim grade and can go toe-to-toe with the ultra top-of-the-line AMG versions. The Stelvio has very competitive cargo room dimensions whether the rear seats are up or down. People choosing the Mercedes-Benz GLC could find themselves with less space for cargo-hauling, especially if they choose the coupe body style.
