Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Stelvio is now available with rear-wheel drive, but it's only standard on the bottom two models. Every version now can be had with heated rear seats, a premium alarm system, and Imola Titanium metallic paint. Its two new option packages are the Nero Edizione bundle, which includes numerous black exterior accents such as 20-inch wheels wrapped in all-season rubber and backed by red, black, or yellow brake calipers. The Ti Sport Carbon package also adds a set of 20-inch rims along with copious carbon-fiber and dark-colored bits inside and out.

Pros
Stunning Italian design,
incredible ride and handling,
enthralling powertrain.

Cons
Nonluxury interior,
questionable reliability,
only one engine-transmission combination.
