Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X3 than in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X3 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has 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 Alfa Romeo Stelvio as you will with the BMW X3, 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). Whether you pick the Alfa Romeo Stelvio or the BMW X3, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is much higher than that for the BMW X3.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is about the same width as the BMW X3. When looking at overall length, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X3.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the BMW X3.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the BMW X3 is clearly the choice over the Alfa Romeo Stelvio for pulling heavy loads. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has a little more horsepower than the BMW X3.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the BMW X3. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has less cargo space than the BMW X3, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X3.
