Compare the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio in Wilkes Barre

Italy takes on Germany in the World Cup of Crossover Vehicles

Alfa Romeo is Italian automotive ingenuity at its best. When you've been making cars for well over one hundred years, you become an expert in manufacturing machines that run well and that people want to drive.

Now, Alfa Romeo continues to lead the charge in innovation, by entering the competitive market of SUV crossover vehicles. Here at Ken Pollock Alfa Romeo in Wilkes Barre, we think the all-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio not only hits the bullseye, it's redefining the crossover genre.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Takes on the Competition

At Ken Pollock Alfa Romeo, we already know we have the best cars and the most highly tuned machines on our lot. But, we also know that, when it comes to crossovers, and even luxury-level crossovers, the Alfa Romeo is not your only option.

If you're torn between the world-class Alfa Romeo Stelvio and its competing luxury crossover model, the Audi Q5, let us help. Here, we've done our homework, comparing the two models side-by-side, to help make your decision-making process easier.


The Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. The Audi Q5

The first thing to know about comparing any Alfa Romeo vehicle to a competing model is that there is no comparison. Both cars may have a lot to offer Pennsylvania drivers, but only the Italian Alfa Romeo has the performance and agility of a sports car, mixed with the prowess of a wild animal. We can talk numbers and measurements all day, but only through driving experience can you see what it really means to be behind the wheel of a high-performance Alfa Romeo.

Both the German-designed Audi Q5 and the Italian Alfa Romeo are small SUV-car crossovers with four doors, two rows, seating for five, and a flexible cargo area with rear seats that fold to expand storage. But, that's where the similarities end.

  • Power. The Audi Q5 doesn't even come close to giving drivers the same power as the Alfa Rome Stelvio. The base models of the Q5 offers only a 252-horsepower engine, while the Alfa Romeo Stelvio starts at 280 horsepower. That's just the beginning. When you move up to the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, the engine puts out a whopping 505 horsepower that the Audi can't match even in its wildest dreams.
  • Features. Regardless of which trim you buy, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes with more standard features than the Audi Q5. In fact, high-performance features, including adaptive suspension dampers and Brembo brakes, as well as interior ambient lighting, are all standard equipment for the Alfa Romeo model, while the Audi either doesn't have them at all or charges you more money for an upper trim level to get them.
  • Transmission. As with engine output, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio also comes equipped with a more powerful transmission than the Audi Q5. In fact, the Alfa Romeo comes standard with an eight-speed shiftable automatic, meaning not only do you have eight gear ratios, you also have the option of either an automatic or to be in control of your car's shifting. The Audi, on the other hand, has a seven-speed automated manual transmission, giving you fewer gears and no automatic option, only the clutch-less automated manual.

While both models offer the family-friendly space and all-wheel drive of a crossover, only the Alfa Romeo Stelvio gives you the prowess and performance of an amazing sports car. Plus, the Audi Q5 has become a common sight on American roads, as a popular crossover. Why be one of a million when you can stand out in the crowd, as you were meant to?
