Review

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.

get the best price

As well as its fire-breathing 503bhp V6 engine, it also gets 20in wheels and bi-xenon headlights as standard, as well as special leather/Alcantara sports seats, sport suspension with adaptive dampers, uprated brakes, a torque vectoring active rear differential and a fully switchable stability control system. Carbonfibre seats and carbon ceramic brakes are optional.

Only available with the Quadrifoglio. Twin-turbo V6 performance version makes a heady-sounding 503bhp in this Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 rival. It revs keenly, but wants for a little mid-range torque – and a really soulful Alfa V6 soundtrack. Standard eight-speed auto ‘box works well with it on the road, but doesn’t always shift quickly enough when you’re driving with serious intent.
