The appeal for European luxury vehicle never seems to fade, and if you have always longed for a sexy, all-European ride, there is no reason for you to hold back on this 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. This SUV has all the bells and whistles of any luxury SUV and even better: a comparatively tamer price tag. The slick design will surely turn many heads and the spacious interior is perfect for a single family.

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is considered a compact luxury SUV. If you’re into flashy cars but looking for an SUV, you can’t go wrong with the Stelvio. Stelvio is literally the best of both worlds. Granted, Stelvio is not the most reliable European car ever built, but the style element alone can go a long way for the Alfa Romeo enthusiast. There are four available trims: Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Sport, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Sport and the top of the tier: Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio.

The 2018 Stelvio seats five people. The luxury touch of leather upholstery will sure please the esthetics for most people. While there are decent leg rooms in both the rows, the head room can be a little too tight for taller drivers/passengers. Also, while the interior is dazzling, the quality of materials used seem to fall a bit short of expectation when compared to its German counterpart like Mercedes and BMW. Dual-zone automatic climate control, loaded infotainment system with 6.5-inch display and a stellar 14-speaker Harman Kardon speaker can offset some of the material quality concerns.

Under the Hood
This mighty, little SUV sure packs a punch under the hood! Alfa Romeo Stelvio boasts a 280-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter engine. Allowing surprising fuel efficiency. The four wheel drive promises superior handling on the toughest of road conditions backed by an eight-speed automatic transmission system. Alfa Romeo claims the 2018 Stelvio can reach 0-to-60 mph in just 5.4 seconds. We found Stelvio to be fast and loud, handles like a sports car with all the convenience of a family SUV.

The base price of the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is not too extravagant for a European, luxury SUV. The base price is about $42,000 but with added options, a more practical Stelvio will probably cost you no less than $50,000. For the style element, this is not a bad price at all.

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is an overall solid purchase. While the price tag is surprisingly lower for a car of this class, we think this is a smart buy if you’re into flashy European vehicles. We highly recommend using a professional grade, all-weather car cover for your Alfa Romeo to protect your purchase from the elements.
