Safety

Both the Stelvio and the Allroad have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available all wheel drive, crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, front parking sensors and rear cross-path warning.

Reliability

The engine in the Stelvio has a single overhead cam for simplicity. The engine in the Allroad has dual overhead cams, which add to the number of moving parts and the complexity of the cylinder heads.

The Allroad’s redline is at 6800 RPM, which causes more engine wear, and a greater chance of a catastrophic engine failure. The Stelvio has a 5500 RPM redline.

Engine

The Stelvio’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl. produces 32 more horsepower (280 vs. 248) and 33 lbs.-ft. more torque (306 vs. 273) than the Allroad’s 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Fuel Economy and Range

The Stelvio has 1.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the Allroad (16.9 vs. 15.3 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

Transmission

An eight-speed automatic is standard on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only a seven-speed automatic is available for the Allroad.

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Stelvio’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Allroad (255/45R20 vs. 245/45R18).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Stelvio offers optional 20-inch wheels. The Allroad’s largest wheels are only 18-inches.

Suspension and Handling

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Stelvio is 1.4 inches wider in the front and 3.3 inches wider in the rear than on the Allroad.

The Stelvio Ti AWD handles at .82 G’s, while the Allroad Premium Plus pulls only .81 G’s of cornering force in a Motor Trend skidpad test.

For greater off-road capability the Stelvio has a 1.6 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the Allroad (8.1 vs. 6.5 inches), allowing the Stelvio to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged.

Passenger Space

The Stelvio has 1.1 inches more front headroom, 1.6 inches more front shoulder room, 1.5 inches more rear headroom and 1.5 inches more rear shoulder room than the Allroad.

Ergonomics

The Stelvio has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Allroad doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Stelvio’s standard easy entry system glides the driver’s seat back, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Allroad doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The Allroad’s cornering lamps activate a lamp on the front corner when the turn signal is activated. The Stelvio’s standard adaptive cornering lights turn the actual headlight unit up to several degrees, depending on steering wheel angle and vehicle speed. This lights a significant distance into corners at any speed.

The Stelvio offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet in the cargo area, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The Allroad doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.

Model Availability

The Stelvio is available in both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. The Allroad doesn’t offer a two-wheel drive configuration.

Economic Advantages

IntelliChoice estimates that five-year ownership costs (depreciation, financing, insurance, fuel, fees, repairs and maintenance) for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio will be $179 to $2765 less than for the Audi Allroad.
