Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio?

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a luxury SUV that seats up to five people. It comes standard with a 280-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. A high-performance 505-hp Quadrifoglio version with a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 is available. Competitors include the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Acura RDX.

What's New on the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio?

There's a new base rear-wheel-drive version, and heated rear seats and a premium alarm are new options. New packages add black or carbon fiber accents.

What Features in the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Are Most Important?

The Stelvio's near 50:50 weight distribution, front to rear, contributes to the SUV's handling prowess, and even the base turbocharged four-cylinder engine is a strong performer with zero-to-60-mph acceleration in 5.4 seconds, according to Alfa Romeo.

Should I Buy the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio?

If sporty performance is foremost in your luxury SUV search, there's a good chance the Stelvio will fit the bill with its quick acceleration, responsive transmission and good handling. It's not the most luxurious inside, however, and its multimedia system isn't the easiest to use.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
