Sure Alfa Romeo's Stelvio Is Fun To Drive, But What’s It Like On The Boring Stuff?

| |

The new Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the first modern SUV of the brand and one of the most intriguing entries in its segment but does it deliver?

Alfa Romeo makes sporty cars, everybody knows that, but in order to really gain some traction on the market, its models must tick a few more boxes as well. And in the case of the Stelvio, that means the practical stuff, like interior room, ride quality, luggage space etc.

While we wouldn’t expect it to beat the class leaders in these areas, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio actually does a good job at hosting up to five passengers and their luggage in relative ease.

Ok, the ride quality might be busier than that in some German rivals but apparently that’s the price you pay for the Stelvio’s class-leading handling character. The rear-biased all-wheel drive system also helps here, as it normally sends power only to the rear unless it detects loss of grip.

Carwow delivers their more practical-oriented verdict on the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio, so head over there for some useful consumer advice.
