Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW X3 PHEV than in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X3 PHEV will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW X3 PHEV. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is much higher than that for the BMW X3 PHEV.

Dimensions
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is about the same width as the BMW X3 PHEV. When looking at overall length, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW X3 PHEV.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the BMW X3 PHEV is clearly the choice over the Alfa Romeo Stelvio for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio greatly out-muscles the BMW X3 PHEV.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the BMW X3 PHEV.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the BMW X3 PHEV. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has less cargo space than the BMW X3 PHEV, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW X3 PHEV.
