For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar E-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

Both the Stelvio and the E-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, rearview cameras, available all-wheel drive, lane departure warning systems, blind spot warning systems, front parking sensors, rear cross-path warning and driver alert monitors.

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

The E-Pace’s redline is at 6500 RPM, which causes more engine wear, and a greater chance of a catastrophic engine failure. The Stelvio has a 5500 RPM redline.

A reliable vehicle saves its owner time, money and trouble. Nobody wants to be stranded or have to be without a vehicle while it’s being repaired. Consumer Reports rates the Stelvio’s reliability 20 points higher than the E-Pace.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2019 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Alfa Romeo vehicles are better in initial quality than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Alfa Romeo 29th in initial quality. With 5 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 31st.

The Stelvio’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the E-Pace’s (58.7% to 41.3%). This gives the Stelvio more stable handling and braking.

The Stelvio AWD handles at .84 G’s, while the E-Pace SE pulls only .83 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Stelvio Ti AWD executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1.5 seconds quicker than the E-Pace SE (26.9 seconds @ .67 average G’s vs. 28.4 seconds @ .6 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the Stelvio’s turning circle is .6 feet tighter than the E-Pace’s (38.5 feet vs. 39.1 feet).

Consumer Reports rated the Stelvio’s headlight performance “Very Good,” a higher rating than the E-Pace’s headlights, which were rated “Fair.”

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Stelvio offers available headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The E-Pace doesn’t offer headlight washers.
