The long-standing rivalry between Alfa Romeo and BMW is almost legendary.

How the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Sport Compares to the BMW X3

Even though it has been a while since the Italian brand was seen on this side of the pond, consumers have not lost one bit of loyalty. For decades, these two sporty icons have battled against each other for the lion’s share of sales. The battle is on again with the impressive Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Sport pitted against the BMW X3.

The Alfa’s gorgeous looks, impressive handling, and dramatic exterior styling are very much up to par with the exterior of BMW X3. The interior boosts maximum convenience and comfort with its ability to seat five passengers with tons of legroom, easy to use infotainment system, and seats sculpted for support for long drives. The Stelvio Ti Sport was built at the point where luxury and race champion performance cross.

The magic the engineers created under the hood in Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Sport is genuinely remarkable.  The peppy 2.0L engine can crank out 280 horsepower at 5200 rpm. Even in the tamest of the three available drive settings, the Ti’s tiller is nearly too sharp on center, requiring many speed corrections on the highway. With a fantastic degree of compliance over rough terrain and a smooth, yet powerful inline-4, the Alfa Romeo is genuinely an excellent ride.

Conclusion – In a world of boring crossovers, the Stelvio Ti Sport is

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Sport is the ideal vehicle for people looking for luxurious amenities and practicality and love the feel of driving a large, muscular SUV. Although both vehicles offer mega-power and the BMW certainly puts up a good fight, the smart money is on the Alfa.
