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.

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, however, prioritizes the driving experience over such plebeian concerns. It strives to be the driver's pick among premium compact crossover SUVs — vehicles that generally aren't known for their dynamic attributes.Rear-wheel-drive base model added.Android Auto/Apple CarPlay is standard on all Stelvios.

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

The 2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet is a drop-top version of the company’s subcompact crossover. Launches two years after the coupe regular version, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet isn’t just a T-Roc with a soft-top, it also features only two doors instead of four. What’s more, the soft-top has a sleeker design, so the Cabriolet looks sportier than its standard sibling. Inspired by the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet is Volkswagen’s only small convertible to date after the discontinuation of the Beetle.

Volkswagen has unveiled its drop-top T-Roc Cabriolet, which it's billing as the only mainstream crossover with a proper convertible roof.
Based on the T-Roc SUV, the company's drop-top crossover follows in the footsteps of the soft-top Range Rover Evoque and Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet by blending wind-in-your-hair thrills with the taller ride popular with buyers at the moment.
Although it bears the T-Roc name, the Cabriolet isn't just a normal T-Roc SUV with the roof prised off. It's actually 34mm longer than the hardtop with a 37mm longer wheelbase, while front seat occupants sit 599mm above the road – which Volkswagen says ensures they "enjoy a great view".

PROS
Traditional SUV attributes with wind-in-the-hair fun
Marks a return of convertibles to VW’s line-up
Trims start with well-equipped Design
It certainly makes a statement...

CONS
Less practical than the five-door T-Roc SUV
Cabriolet quite a bit pricier, too
Reduced engine range with no diesel
Handling becomes a bit wobbly
