SUVs are perfect for families of all sizes, and the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio is no exception. Many drivers love the power, style, and performance of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, and our team here at Alfa Romeo of Santa Monica is no different.

Here’s how the Alfa Romeo Stelvio dominates the rest of the competition, including the new BMW X3. 


Both of these vehicles perform at the highest level, but it’s clear that the Alfa Romeo Stelvio offers so much more. Using a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio outputs 280 horsepower. On the other hand, the BMW X3 is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that only produces 248 horsepower.

This difference in power can also be attributed to lower curb weight. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio sports a 4,044-pound curb weight, while the curb weight of the BMW X3 is 4,156 pounds. 

Special Features

When it comes to safety, both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the BMW X3 offer plenty of active safety features. For example, drivers can enjoy automatic emergency braking in both the Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the BMW X3.

Despite this, our Alfa Romeo SUV offers more safety features than the BMW X3. With its standard safety suite, drivers can enjoy everything from rear-parking assist and blind-spot monitoring to forward-collision alerts.
