It's not easy to choose between the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the 2019 Jaguar F-PACE. But first, congratulations for thinking outside the usual SUV/crossover box. Most luxury suvs on the road are by Audi, BMW, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz. There's nothing wrong with those marques, but whenever there’s a sighting of a Stelvio or an F-Pace on the road, it’s typically accompanied by a thrill. The rivals are just more commonplace.
Those thrills are happening more, though, as buyers are switching on to the joys each of these crossovers provides. However, we’re going to avoid the most joyful variants — the highly specialized 505-hp Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the 550-hp F-Pace SVR — to focus on the more affordable versions. There’s still plenty to appreciate in the models for mortals, as we're about to demonstrate. Read on to find out which of these two luxury SUVs is best.
