High praise when they say the Stelvio is ahead of all its similarly priced competitors when it comes to handling. All the fun of throwing around a Giulia, but with the added ride height and you'd think it would be a bit twitchy but it's not.
I insist on underlining this aspect, because the Italian SUV is better on the track than expected.
It is fair to note that off-road credentials do not matter for most SUVs, and this model is probably not happy when you take it off paved roads. However, when you have room to stretch its legs, it goes like its pants are on fire, and you forget you are in an SUV.
Definitely worth the read if you're interested in knowing how it feels when it's put through it's paces (who wouldn't be?)It weighs 1,660 kilograms (3,660 pounds) with fluids for both versions, which is over 150 kilos less than a Macan with a four cylinder engine, or just about lighter than a comparable BMW X3.
