Predictably, Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz dominate the compact luxury suv market, leaving the 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio to serve Italianistas, the Alfisti, and independent thinkers who prefer to roam the roads less traveled in the SUV less driven.
For 2020, the Stelvio is updated with a new infotainment system with a standard 8.8-inch display boasting improved graphics and functionality. Upgraded advanced driving assistance systems also debut, including what Alfa Romeo calls “Level II autonomy.” Other changes include a revised driver information system, a redesigned center console, a new steering wheel, and exterior packages that add extra attitude. Otherwise, the 2020 Stelvio is the same small SUV with serious sporting potential. After all, it is named after the Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps, is based on a rear-wheel-drive platform shared with the brand’s Giulia sport sedan, and boasts a near-perfect weight distribution. So, it’s gotta be fun to drive. And it is.
