Interior Features

When passengers step into the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, they are met with a cabin that showcases fine Italian styling. That classic atmosphere is what makes the Stelvio such a fantastic SUV option for families who seek a more exciting adventure in their vehicle. Both the Stelvio and the Q5 come equipped with top comfort options standard such as heated front seating. However, the Stelvio also comes with a heated steering wheel as a standard feature which is something the base Q5 lacks. Similarly, both SUVs come loaded with premium infotainment systems such as connectivity to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for compatible smartphones.

Safety Features

Being premier family SUVs on the market today, the Stelvio and the Q5 have no shortage of systems for drivers to take advantage of.
