Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus NX 300h than in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lexus NX 300h 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 Lexus NX 300h, 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). The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus NX 300h. 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 Lexus NX 300h.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a little wider than the Lexus NX 300h, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus NX 300h.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is clearly the choice over the Lexus NX 300h for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio greatly out-muscles the Lexus NX 300h.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lexus NX 300h.

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 Lexus NX 300h. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Lexus NX 300h.

Warranty
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus NX 300h.
