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.

Pros
Sharp steering and precise handling
Powerful and exciting engines
Distinctive styling helps it stand out from the crowd

Cons
Overly sensitive brake pedal
Snug back seat and cargo volume
Lower towing capacity than competitors

Price rises quickly with options
