AutoEvolution got a chance to take the Alfa Romeo Stelvio on the track alongside some Giulias and I'm really not surprised about the results. Long story short, it definitely isn't nice off-road (not so Utility if you will) but hey, I expected that too as it's not something made for that, but on the track, it did fair quite well.
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.
