The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the first crossover for the Italian brand in America. We drive it to determine how it fits in the crowded market.

      There's a lot of plastic used around the interior... that trim plate around the shifter is especially unbecoming of a product that aspires to compete with more established premium brands. What's more, MotorWeek is doing the buying public a huge disservice without at least mentioning Alfa's reliability record; they're known for unreliability as much as Toyota is known to be reliable.

      Have just bought a red one. It is a FANTASTIC ride. Amazing performance. Pretty nice interior. A very fun and unique alternative to the other Euro utes.

      The price is quite reasonable. It doesn't take much options to get Ford and GM products in the 40-45K range. It's a surprisingly good value, actually.

      What about reliability? If your vehicle is in the shop all the time it really doesn't matter how nice it is or fast it goes when you're not driving it.

      Steve Schultz. That's my point. after 30k warranty (with most car company) you're on your own. Most car problem/issue come on around 60k or more. it's better to stick with brands known for liability. I know What i'm talking about moron.

      Well... that is funny; Enzo Ferrari was manager of Scuderia Ferrari, which was one of the most successful sport divisions in Alfa Romeo... and later in 1932 he got independent and formed guess what: Ferrari. Alfa from 1912 up to the second world war created only high performance sports cars. So yes, they have a great lineage! BMW and Mercedes were making slow and boring cars when Alfa made sport cars.

      This is an evolution of the Giulia....Nothing to do with FCA....Giulia developed by Ferrari engineers...I'd be more worried about AUDI = VW lineage and crappy electronics or BMW fuel pumps self igniting for example...

      Another 8 speed slushbox powered crossover that nobody wanted, nor asked for. And at a $42,000 starting price, dont expect to see too many on the road. Thats a ludicrous amount of money to pay for something with less cargo room than your average luxury sedan. I will never understand why crossovers are a popular segment here.

      I live in Chicago, the 3rd largest city in the country, and have yet to see one on the road and I drive all day for work, all over town. It seems to me that they (Alfa) haven't won over the public yet, time is a wastin'.

      I've heard the great lease deals only apply if you have a competing brand like BMW, MB or Audi, is this true? If so, it might be 1995 all over again...wake up guys and stop making it so hard for people willing to take a chance on YOU to get into YOUR rides!
