2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Is Just A CX-5 With A Bigger Tag?

By  | 

Alfa Romeo has been getting us all excited for the arrival of their Alfa Romeo Stelvio and while we do think the vehicle has a lot to offer, is it really worth the price tag?

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio will come with three trim levels, Stelvio, Stelvio Ti, and Stelvio Quadrifoglio. The two lower range models will come powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be offering about 280hp and 306lb ft of torque.

The Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio, on the other hand, will come powered by a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 engine that will be delivering about 505hp and 443lb ft of torque. It will also be fitted with a set of 20inch wheels, adjustable performance suspension, Alcantara seats and more.

The base model with RWD will retail for $40,195 while the top of the range model will retail for $79,995. Do you think it is worth that much or would you just rather get the cheaper Mazda CX-5?
