2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
New 2022

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Alfa Romeo's new Stelvio is stimulating to drive and has special appeal for drivers in search of a rewarding road experience but that doesn't mean dolce vita is upon us. For daily driving needs, we found this mechanical sibling of the Giulia ripe with annoyances. The Stelvio excels when driven with gusto; the 280-hp turbocharged engine delivers thrilling acceleration accompanied by a pleasant exhaust snarl.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"505hp, all wheel drive. Put it in RACE Mode and hold on. 0-60 in 3.4 is remarkable for this heavyweight SUV. Engine is a baby Farrari 6cyl screamer. It fly's under the radar, unlike the Z06 I traded in on it."

Greg S., TX (2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio)

"Very responsive acceleration and dynamic handling. Great road feel. Transmission shifts perfectly, in fully automatic mode, and using the paddle shifters."

Bill E., TX (2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio)
