Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

With so much Giulia DNA, the Stelvio was bound to be good. At last an Alfa to buy with your heart *and* head

Pros
One of the more lithe SUVs to drive
is comfy and refined too

Cons
Not without compromise, and does it look good enough for an Alfa?

Minor changes to standard feature availability, V8 models dropped for 2022.

Pros
Balance of comfort and performance makes it an appealing daily driver
Elegant design gives it a true luxury appearance
Roomy seating for a small luxury SUV
Solid fuel economy from the standard four-cylinder engine

Cons
Less cargo space and towing capacity than competition

The GLC63 S model joins the lineup for 2022. The GLC63 S brings the 503-hp version of the twin-turbo V-8, previously reserved only for the GLC Coupe, to the more practical squareback body style this year. However, Mercedes-AMG has also told Car and Driver that certain 2022 models normally offered with V-8 engines will not be available. The GLC63 and GLC63 S models may be impacted by this change to the lineup, but representatives from Mercedes-AMG would not comment or confirm that information by press time.

Pros
A trio of high-performance engine options,
agile handling,
deluxe cabin.

Cons
Some rivals offer more cargo space,
pronounced road noise when cruising,
rough ride over imperfect pavement.
