Long time Outback owner/driver. Also '83 Spider Veloce and just replaced 2018 base Stelvio with 2020 TI Sport. You will love the Stelvio on long trips. Left the Stelvio at my girlfriend's house and she took it for an hour's drive instead of her 2020 Outback Touring XT. Something about 280hp vs 260 or was it the seats in the TI?Hey everyone, I've been reading this forum for awhile trying to decide on my next car. I'm test driving a Stelvio this Saturday. I'm coming from a Jeep Wrangler, in which I make several 3 hour trips to Pa (from Long Island) a year. I've had the Jeep for almost 10 years now, and as I get older, I'm definitely looking for something more comfortable for those rides. Lately, I've been taking my wife's Subaru Outback, and the ride is so nice, it prompted me to look for a new car.
I'm all about the Stelvio because of the driving fun factor, but I understand that could take away some of the comfortable ride qualities.
Does anyone use the car for long trips? How comfortable is it? Road noise, ride, etc.
