The 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a high-performance compact luxury crossover SUV produced and marketed by the Alfa Romeo Stellantis subdivision. Those looking for even more thrills should check out the high-performance 2024 Stelvio Quadrifoglio, covered separately. The rear-wheel drive is standard on the base model, but all-wheel drive is optional there and standard on the rest of the model. Towing capacity is 3,000 pounds. In addition to the lively powertrain, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio boasts athletic handling and a compliant ride.
The 2023 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is tested with 20-inch wheels, but still provided sufficient isolation from all but the heaviest impacts. Although its maximum cornering grip is equel to rivals, the Alfa Romeo is the alpha dog when it comes to driving engagement. The chassis, shared with the Giulia sedan, has damping that is composed and comfortable. It adds desirable standard features that include larger 19-inch wheels, in-dash navigation, a sunroof, and more available options. Most paint colors cost extra, and different wheel designs are available.
2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio : Interior
Inside, the 2024 Stelvio offers a modern interior and a comfortable driving position. Sportier models can be equipped with carbon fiber trim elements, while those looking for a more upscale look can choose wood inserts. The supportive front seats are upholstered in leather, and nice aluminum accents adorn the dashboard, doors and center console. The Stelvio has some useful storage tricks up its Italian sleeve, but with a small boot behind the rear seat, it’s not the roomiest crossover in the pack.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio featured with a 12.3-inch display screen that can be set to three various options: Evolved, Relax and Heritage. The infotainment system is still only available in one size – 8.8 inches – and responds to touch inputs and a handy rotary controller on the center console as redundant controls, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. We found the infotainment system to be visually appealing, but the navigation alerts occasionally appeared too late, resulting in missed turns. Using one of the two standard smartphone connected interfaces for navigation solves this minor problem.

The Stelvio’s turbocharged four-cylinder transmits a hefty 280 horsepower through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Those looking for even more thrills should check out the high-performance Stelvio Quadrifoglio, covered separately. The rear-wheel drive is standard on the base model, but all-wheel drive is optional there and standard on the rest of the model. Towing capacity is 3,000 pounds. In addition to the provocative driveline, the Stelvio bluster athletic handling and a compliant ride.
The Stelvio’s actual fuel economy and highway range are unremarkable, they match its four-cylinder competitors. For 2023, the rear-wheel drive model was rated at 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. The Stelvio, which we drove on our 75mph highway and fuel economy mode as part of our extensive testing regime, returned 26mpg. Competitors like the X3 and Lexus RX are more fuel-efficient.
