Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT5 than in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac XT5 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.

The Cadillac XT5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Cadillac XT5. 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 Cadillac XT5.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is about the same width as the Cadillac XT5. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XT5, which may make it easier to park.

With somewhat higher torque, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Cadillac XT5.

When considering towing capacity, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT5 for pulling heavy loads. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has a little less horsepower than the Cadillac XT5.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the Cadillac XT5. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has less cargo space than the Cadillac XT5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XT5.
