Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo XC60 than in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Volvo XC60 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
The Volvo XC60 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Alfa Romeo Stelvio will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60.

The Destination Charge for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is much higher than that for the Volvo XC60.

Performance
With the Volvo XC60, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC60.

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 Volvo XC60. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has less cargo space than the Volvo XC60, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
