Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. The Acura RDX will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RDX as you will with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
