Crossovers and SUVs are mocked for, among other things, having cookie-cutter aesthetics, but the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is one of the most attractive models in the class.

Alfa Romeo gives its little luxury crossover a stunning body that most people would consider to be lovely and a fantastic chassis that communicates better than an Italian lover.

The car's engine is a powerful turbo-four that works with an accurate transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive.

Although the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan are better-rounded options, those who are passionate about style and driving flair tend to favour the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio.

Alfa Romeo changes the Ti Sport trim's moniker to Veloce for 2022 and adds a number of additional standard equipment.

The latter has a number of driver assistance features, including front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, automatic high lights, blind-spot monitoring, and lane-departure warning.

Additionally, each model of Alfa Romeo Stelvio now has dark external grille, exhaust tip, roof rail, and skid plate trim.

The Stelvio Ti, in our opinion, is the model to buy. All-wheel drive is a $2000 option on the base Sprint grade but is included as standard.

A dual-pane sunroof, wider 19-inch wheels, built-in navigation, and more available choices are included as desired standard equipment in the Ti.

Engine of an Alfa Romeo stelvio A strong 280 horsepower are delivered by the turbocharged four-cylinder in the Stelvio through an eight-speed automated transmission.

The base model comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but the rest of the lineup offers both all-wheel drive as an option and as standard.

Alfa Romeo Towing Capacity The Stelvio's only configuration, in addition to the high-performance Quadrifoglio, eliminates the buyer's options and caps towing to 3000 pounds.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio MPG 22 city mpg and 29 highway mpg are the ratings for the rear-drive variant. The highway rating is reduced by 1 mpg when all-wheel drive is installed.

The Stelvio we tested on our thorough testing program's 75 mph highway fuel-economy route returned 26 mpg on the test route.

Interior of an Alfa Romeo The Stelvio has a beautiful interior and a comfortable driving position, much like the Giulia sedan.
