There is no shortage of options when shopping for a luxury SUV in Germantown. True luxury, however, means outperforming all others across performance, aesthetics, safety and amenities. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio does this in spades. Capturing the imagination of drivers everywhere, the Stelvio brings an elevated design sensibility and racing pedigree to Maryland drivers that can't be found in its closest competitors. Take a moment to explore with us what propels this Alfa Romeo SUV into a class of its own.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. Audi Q5
Just slightly lower on price, the Audi Q5 fails to live up to the Alfa Romeo Stelvio in almost all other categories. It's 7-speed transmission, 248 horsepower, and 273 lb-ft of torque pale in comparison to the Stelvio's 8-speed transmission, 280 horsepower, and 306 lb-ft of torque. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio's race-inspired engine provides an exhilaration with which the Audi Q5 simply can't compete.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. BMW X3
The BMW X3 sDrive30i has standard RWD, placing it at an immediate disadvantage over the Stelvio's AWD. Both share an 8-speed transmission, but the X3 comes up short with 248 horespower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The BMW X3 also misses out on luxury features that are standard in the Stelvio.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. Mercedes-Benz GLC
Another competitor in the small luxury SUV category is the Mercedes Benz GLC 300. While the GLC 300 has a 9-speed transmission, the engine delivers 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, not quite the excellence achieved by its Alfa Romeo counterpart. Like the BMW X3, the GLC lacks standard leather seating, something naturally associated with assuming the title of luxury SUV.
