Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Enclave than in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Buick Enclave 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.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio as you will with the Buick Enclave, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Alfa Romeo Stelvio or the Buick Enclave, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Buick Enclave.

Dimensions
Since the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is much slimmer than the Buick Enclave, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Buick Enclave.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Buick Enclave.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Buick Enclave is clearly the choice over the Alfa Romeo Stelvio for pulling heavy loads. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has a little less horsepower than the Buick Enclave.

Utility
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has less seating than the Buick Enclave, making the Buick Enclave the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has significantly less cargo capacity than the Buick Enclave.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio than that of the Buick Enclave.
