2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. 2019 BMW X3

Finding the right luxury SUV in Berkeley can be tricky, especially when you have exceptional options such as the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and 2019 BMW X3. Both soar in several categories, but Alfa Romeo creates a level of exclusivity that BMW can’t touch. For more power and premium driving features, choose the Stelvio.

X3 or Stelvio: Performance

These two SUVs go head to head in several key factors, but the Stelvio pulls ahead with a stronger engine, standard AWD, and more. Discerning Walnut Creek drivers should take note.

  • Engine: The Alfa Romeo Stelvio wins as far as raw power, thanks to its 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder that produces 280 hp and 306 lb-ft of torque. The BMW X3 falls behind with a 2.0L twin-turbo 4-cylinder engine that maxes out at 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
  • Drivetrain: Fremont drivers, rejoyce: the Stelvio comes standard with all-wheel drive, but to get it on the X3, you’ll have to upgrade.
  • Fuel Economy: BMW has a slight edge here, earning 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway against the Stelvio’s 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway rating.
  • Transmission: Each of these SUVs come standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

X3 or Stelvio: Premium Features

As you’d expect in a luxury vehicle, both the X3 and Stelvio are packed with premium comfort and technology features designed to delight, including rearview cameras, power liftgates, 10-way power front seats, optional leather seats, and more. You can also get extra peace of mind for every Dublin trip with safety features like blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alerts. But there are many perks you can only find with the Stelvio, including:

  • Adaptive Suspension Dampers: This helpful feature tightens or loosens its shock absorbers for a customizable experience through Fremont. Choose between sporty or relaxed driving.
  • Android Auto: No matter if your phone is Apple or Android, Alfa Romeo has you covered with pairing technology. BMW only offers Apple CarPlay, keeping Android users in the dust.
  • Increased Styling: relish the look of an in-dash compass, and a leather and aluminum steering wheel.
