Explore our competitive analysis for the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Since it first burst onto the scene in 2016, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been a segment-defining model for the luxury performance SUV market. Shifting design paradigms, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio provides equal measure of engaging driving experiences, paired with an impeccably crafted interior and an enviable array of new technologies and creature comforts. The result is a vehicle that many Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL drivers consider to be the pinnacle of its class.

At Rick Case Alfa Romeo, we know how rare it is for a vehicle inspire such reverence from drivers and critics as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio does. But while it's almost universally regarded as one of the most compelling performance SUVs on the market, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio isn't without its competition. Still, the Alfa Romeo brand has never shied away from a challenge, and we think that once you see how the Alfa Romeo Stelvio fares compared to the competition, you'll see it easily comes out ahead!

Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. Porsche Macan

  • As its athletic exterior design might suggest, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is all about agility and on-demand power delivering. With a turbocharged 2.0-liter all-aluminum engine its cleanly sculpted hood, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio maintains a near-perfect 50/50 back-to-front weight distribution, yet still manages to deliver up to 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. As for its German rival, the Porsche Macan falls shy of the standard set by the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, topping out at 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.
  • Power and performance are the main draws of models like the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, but if you're like many Boca Raton, FL drivers, you're also value efficiency. Happily, even with its power advantage on the new Porsche Macan, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio also has an edge on fuel economy. With EPA-estimated fuel economy returns of up to 22 mpg city  / 28 mpg highway, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is markedly more conservative with its fuel usage than the Porsche Macan, which rings in at an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city / 25 mpg highway.
  • It should be noted that while both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Porsche Macan are reserved solely for drivers with the means and driving acumen to handle them, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is markedly more accessible. Starting at $42,195 MSRP, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a much more compelling value proposition than the Porsche Macan, which clocks in a loftier $47,800 MSRP.
  • As you might expect of an Italian car with the pedigree of Alfa Romeo, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio features standard leather upholstery, which infuses its cabin with upscale fit and finish that few cars on the market can match. Unfortunately, even with its sky-high price tag, the Porsche Macan comes outfitted with cheaper standard simulated suede upholstery with partial leather trim, making its cabin feel much less luxurious than its Italian rival.
  • While the roads around the greater Weston, FL area may be smooth most of the time, we've all encountered pothole-pockmarked streets from time to time. Fortunately, with standard adaptive suspension dampers, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is well-equipped to mitigate those little bumps in the road to provide a more comfortable ride quality for both you and your passengers. Now, you can also get adaptive suspension dampers with the Porsche Macan, but they do not come standard, meaning you'll have to spring for a pricier trim to enjoy comparable comfort.
