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 F-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

Compared to metal, the Stelvio’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire. The Jaguar F-Pace has a metal gas tank.

Both the Stelvio and the F-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 F-Pace have dual overhead cams, which add to the number of moving parts and the complexity of the cylinder heads.

The F-Pace’s redline is at 6500 to 6800 RPM, which causes more engine wear, and a greater chance of a catastrophic engine failure. The Stelvio has a 5500 RPM redline.

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 is 6.6 inches narrower than the F-Pace, making the Stelvio easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

The design of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio amounts to more than styling. The Stelvio has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .32 Cd. That is significantly lower than the F-Pace (.36) and many sports cars. A more efficient exterior helps keep the interior quieter and helps the Stelvio get better fuel mileage.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Stelvio has standard extendable sun visors. The F-Pace doesn’t offer extendable visors.

To quickly and conveniently keep personal devices charged without cables tangling and wearing out, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio offers an optional wireless phone charging system (Qi) in the center console. The F-Pace doesn’t offer wireless personal charging.
