2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Reliability - Consumer Reports
2021
New 2022

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Alfa Romeo's 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.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
