What's New

The 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio crossover receives a mild nip and tuck. The updates include newly available active safety features, an updated infotainment system that promises better graphics and faster response times, and an enhanced interior with a new shifter, steering wheel design, and console.

Choosing Your Alfa Romeo Stelvio

The Stelvio is available in three trims: Stelvio, Ti, and Quadrifoglio. Pricing ranges from $42,640 including destination for a base model to $82,040 for a Quadrifoglio.

Buyers can also choose a sub-trim. The base Stelvio can be had in Sport form, while the Ti is available in Lusso, Sport, and Sport Carbon variants. Quadrifoglios stand alone as the flagship of the lineup.

Engine Choices

Most Stelvios will come equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, but the Quadrifoglio houses a Ferrari-derived 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder280 hp306 lb-ft25 mpg
2.9L Twin-Turbo V6505 hp443 lb-ft19 mpg

Rear-wheel drive is standard on the base trim, but all other models come standard with all-wheel drive. AWD is a $2,000 upgrade on the base Stelvio. Both engines come paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Paddle shifters are optional, but every model clicks off 100-millisecond shift times.

The base engine offers class-leading figures, which is appropriate from a brand that bills itself on performance. It gets the Stelvio from 0-60 mph in a very respectable 5.4 seconds and has a top speed of 144 mph. The V6 will stampede to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds and hit a top speed of 176 mph.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a five-seat crossover. The second row enjoys a good amount of head and shoulder room, but its 36 inches of legroom is a bit tight for the segment. It slightly trails the competing Audi Q5 and BMW X3, and is especially put to shame by the 39.5 inches found in the Cadillac XT4.

Cargo area also isn't anything particularly noteworthy. There are 18.5 cubic feet of it behind the second row; fold it down and 56.5 cubic feet of space becomes available. Total space beats out competitors from Cadillac and Audi, but its dedicated cargo area is significantly smaller than what's found in the Cadillac, Audi, and BMW.

Safety Features

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and rear parking sensors. The Ti also gets front parking sensors, while only the Quadrifoglio gets standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

On the base Stelvio, the Driver Assistance Dynamic Package ($1,200) is how buyers can equip adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. Blind-spot monitoring and front parking sensors are bundled with auto-dimming side mirrors, a leather shift knob, and a leather steering wheel for $800.

The Ti is available with an Active Driver Assist Package ($3,250), which brings adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, automatic high beams, a driver attention monitor, traffic sign recognition, and traffic jam assist. This only costs $2,000 on the Quadrifoglio thanks to its additional standard features.


The Stelvio enjoys updated infotainment set up for 2020, beginning with its newly-standard 8.8-inch touchscreen with UConnect. The updated software boasts additional customization options, faster haptic response speeds, and improved graphics.

It also includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, and a Performance Pages section that allows users to track key performance metrics. Three USB ports are standard, while the Quadrifoglio gets navigation included.

Navigation is $1,200 on the base Stelvio and Ti, and a wireless charging pad is a $200 standalone option across the lineup.

Stelvio - From $42,640

The standard Stelvio comes well equipped for the price: besides the infotainment system previously discussed, there's six-way power front seats, leather upholstery, remote start, keyless entry, push-button start, and dual-zone climate control. On the outside, it's equipped with 18-inch wheels, a power liftgate, and power-folding and heated mirrors.

Some of our favorite options include the $200 hands-free power tailgate and $1,350 dual-pane sunroof. The Cold Weather Package ($800) adds heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated windshield nozzles.

The Stelvio Sport sub-trim costs another $1,450 but includes paddle shifters, a racier body-colored appearance kit, 19-inch wheels, and a sport-tuned suspension.

Ti - From $47,040

Holding down the middle of the Stelvio lineup is the Ti trim. It adds heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, front parking sensors, real wood interior trim, 19-inch wheels, and chrome door sills.

A Ti Performance Package is $1,650 and comes with an active suspension, paddle shifters, and limited-slip differential. Heated rear seats can be added for $350.

The Ti Lusso sub-trim is an extra $2,500 and brings 12-way leather seats of an exclusive design, 10-spoke chrome wheels, and an abundance of leather-covered surfaces. The Ti Sport, also an extra $2,500, adds 14-way power front seats with more bolstering in addition to the contents it brings on the standard Stelvio.

The Sport Carbon is essentially a Ti Sport with a dollop of carbon fiber ladled on. There's carbon fiber mirror caps, grille, and interior trim, as well as special dark exterior trim and badging. Twenty-inch dark aluminum wheels hiding signature brake calipers embossed with the Alfa Romeo script complete the look.

Quadrifoglio - From $82,040

Sitting comfortably atop the Stelvio family tree is the Quadrifoglio. This fire-spitting crossover is a force to be reckoned with. Besides its 505-horsepower engine, it includes a torque-vectoring rear differential, carbon-fiber driveshaft, and multi-mode drive mode selector that can tailor it to the conditions at hand.

The Quad also boats the quickest and most direct steering rack in the segment. All of this resulted in a Nurburgring lap time of 7 minutes and 51 seconds – a time that, until only recently, was the fastest recorded lap time of any SUV or crossover.

Most of the upcharge for the Quad goes towards its exotic powertrain, but Alfa was generous enough to include a few extra standard features. These include 20-inch wheels, eight-way power front seats, navigation, a Harman Kardon audio system, and genuine carbon-fiber trim.

CarsDirect Tip

Most of us can't swing for the barnstorming Quad, but the 280-hp four-cylinder used in the rest of the lineup isn't a bad consolation prize. We'd get our 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio in the Ti Sport sub-trim. Not only is it well equipped, it most convincingly looks and plays the part of a sporting crossover, which is exactly what the Stelvio is.

Sedan-like agility. Because of their size, few crossovers or SUVs can handle similarly to sedans. The 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is one of the rare crossovers that can actually provide similar handling and performance as a sport sedan. It’s incredibly impressive, but the downside to its excellent handling is a firm ride.

Find a twisty road, and the Stelvio comes alive. Thanks to its 50/50 weight distribution, short wheelbase, and rear-wheel-drive layout, it handles better than 90% of the crossovers on the market.

That’s all with the base trim, too. Move up to one of the higher trims and you’ll get even better performance around corners. The available Quadrifoglio model is even more agile, features a super-quick steering ratio, and barely has any body roll.

A tale of two engines. The Stelvio is available with two engines, both of which are strong. The base engine may not sound all that impressive, but it’s got plenty of oomph. It’s a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates 280 hp. Thanks to an eight-speed automatic transmission, it can get to 60 mph from a standstill in 5.4 seconds – not bad for a base powertrain.

If you want sports car performance out of your Stelvio, you can opt for the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 that’s only for the Quadrifoglio trim. It churns out 505 hp and comes with various high-performance components: a torque-vectoring rear differential, two-mode exhaust system, sticky tires, and better cooling. The result is a 0-60 mph time of just 3.6 seconds.

Aiding drivers in getting the most out of the Stelvio is Alfa Romeo’s DNA drive-mode selector that lets drivers choose between three different modes – four in the Quadrifoglio. Each mode brings out a different quality, allowing drivers to cater the vehicle to the desired task.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

A well-formed Italian suit. Crossovers, for the most part, have ungainly designs because they’re trying to combine the best of cars and SUVs. This isn’t an issue the Stelvio has. Alfa Romeo has a history of designing some of the prettiest cars ever. While we wouldn’t put the Stelvio in the category of the best-looking vehicles ever made, it’s certainly handsome.

Sharing a familial design with the Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan, the Stelvio has a curvaceous blueprint that makes it look exotic. We’re especially partial to the front end, which features a triangular grille, razor-sharp headlights, and large oval air intakes. It’s certainly a unique design that gives the Stelvio a sporty, yet elegant stance.

On the inside, the Stelvio takes a different approach. The cabin features a simplistic design that strives to keep things straightforward for the driver. There’s a new 8.8-inch touchscreen for the 2020 model year that takes up a lot of space on the dashboard, while oversized paddles sit behind the steering wheel. The recessed dials in the instrument cluster have a sporty edge to them that reminds you of the Stelvio’s best qualities.

Cramped seating. If you plan on getting a ride in the Stelvio, be sure to call “shotgun” because the rear seats aren't a comfortable place to be. While the front two seats are pleasant and have a lot of space, the rear seats are another story. In the back, passengers have just 31.9 inches of rear legroom. For adults, it’s a tight squeeze.

Cargo space is just as lackluster. Because of the Stelvio’s design, it only has 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. Folding the second row down results in 56.5 cubic feet of space. These figures are well behind other compact crossovers.

Final thoughts. Make no mistake, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio puts performance first. Whether you go with the base trim or the mental Quadrifoglio, you’re going to want to take the long way home.

But that kind of performance comes at the expense of things that stop it from being as comfortable as others on a daily basis. Its tight rear seats are a major downside, the firm ride could prove to be annoying for regular use, and the small cargo area could be a hassle for road trips.

There’s a lot of competition, but if you’re looking for performance, you’ll want to check out the Jaguar F-Pace and the Porsche Macan. The F-Pace is offered with three engines that range from efficient to ludicrous. It’s nearly as good looking as the Stelvio and nearly as good to drive. A tricky infotainment system and a lackluster interior are a few of the F-Pace’s downsides.

The Macan is offered in a dizzying number of configurations with powertrains that nearly match the Stelvio’s in terms of performance. The Porsche has nicer materials and better fit and finish, but, surprisingly, it has less cargo space.
