Which Engine Will You Choose?

Land Rover and Alfa Romeo both have a sterling reputation when it comes to performance, but when you look closely at the Stelvio, some big drawbacks begin to appear. Let's see how their most powerful configurations compare:

Range Rover Velar

Alfa Romeo Stelvio


3.0L Supercharged V6

2.0L Turbocharged 4-Cylinder


380 hp

280 hp


332 lb-ft

306 lb-ft

Top Speed

155 mph

144 mph

The Stelvio manages to put out admirable numbers for a 4-cylinder engine, but it just can't compete with the Velar's V6. On top of that, the Velar S trim can be equipped with a 4-cylinder engine that roars to life with 317 lb-ft of torque, while the Stelvio doesn't provide any engine upgrade options.

Interior Advantages

An SUV should provide plenty of room for cargo, and that's one area where the new Range Rover Velar excels. Does it offer more than the Stelvio? Find out now:

  • 2018 Range Rover Velar

    • Cargo Room Behind Rear Seats: 34.4 cubic feet

  • 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

    • Cargo Room Behind Rear Seats: 18.5 cubic feet

Whether you're loading up camping supplies or groceries from Mariano's, the Velar simply offers more room. In addition, the Velar can be equipped with the following exclusive features:

  • 20-Way Power-Adjustable Heated, Cooled, and Massaging Seats
