2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. 2021 Audi Q5 in Vancouver, BC

2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. 2021 Audi Q5 in Vancouver, BC

The 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio has arrived, and we're proud to report this Italian-made luxury SUV sets itself apart from its segment in more ways than one. Indeed, this awe-inspiring testament to Italian craftsmanship is as refined and stunning as it is engaging to drive. We at Alfa Romeo of Vancouver have taken the opportunity to compare the latest Stelvio SUV to the rival 2021 Audi Q5 to show our customers just how compelling this Alfa Romeo model is. If you're based in Vancouver, BC or any of the neighbouring areas of Coquitlam, Surrey, Burnaby, Langley, or Richmond, read on to find out how the 2021 Stelvio reigns supreme over the Audi Q5, and feel free to consult our Alfa Romeo Stelvio model research for more information.

Exterior Design

You won't need more than a glance at these two models to know the Alfa Romeo Stelvio's design is unmatched by both the Audi Q5 and most every other SUV in their segment. With its curvy shell, sleek lighting, and Alfa Romeo's unmistakable five-hole wheels and V Scudetto grille, this Italian luxury model turns no shortage of heads. Those who enjoy personalizing their SUV will be thrilled to know they can choose from several stylish new body colours for their 2021 Stelvio, as well as an available rear sport diffuser that reduces drag. As for the Audi Q5, this SUV's exterior design is mature and understated in its own right, but it lacks style points and fails to make a lasting impression like the 2021 Stelvio.

Interior Design

The latest Alfa Romeo Stelvio is just as elegant and refined on the inside, as its comfortable, driver-centric cabin is lined with soft-touch, luxury materials. Leather upholstery lines this Italian SUV's supportive seats, while its optimal driving position enhances visibility and allows you to enjoy the Stelvio's riveting drive to the fullest. Those who prefer a sportier aesthetic can treat their Stelvio to carbon fibre trim, with wood inlays available to those looking for an added touch of class. The Audi Q5, by comparison, offers a clean and mature interior design, but like its exterior, it remains a little underwhelming, while many luxury amenities are only available at a premium.

If you'd like to enjoy first-rate, luxury automation day in, day out, our finance centre can help make your purchase of the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio a pressure- and stress-free affair.


The latest Stelvio sets itself apart from the Audi Q5 in terms of performance as much as it does in terms of looks and design. A 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine packs a solid 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque, while the Stelvio's Quadrifoglio trim boasts a twin-turbo motor with a jaw-dropping 505 horses. Not only does the Stelvio's base engine best the Audi Q5's in terms of horsepower (261) and torque (273 lb-ft), its eight-speed automatic transmission provides smooth shifts over the Q5's seven-speed offering.

In addition to its best-in-class power and torque, the 2021 Stelvio also boasts best-in-class acceleration, reaching 100 km/h in under six seconds. This luxury SUV's responsive acceleration works in tandem with athletic handling and a well-balanced ride to give the Stelvio the most riveting driving dynamics in the segment. The Audi Q5, on the other hand, isn't nearly as engaging and yields the same fuel economy as the Stelvio, even though it delivers less pep.

Safety & Crash-Test Ratings

The 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio heads into its new model year with solid safety and crash-test ratings, as well as an extensive lineup of driver-assist functions. While the Audi Q5 offers a respectable slate of safety technology, you'll have to go out of pocket to enjoy many of its more popular features. The latest Stelvio, by comparison, includes functions like traction and electronic stability control and a forward collision mitigation system, with an Available Driver Assistance Package offering semi-autonomous driving technology, active blind spot assist, and a lane-keeping assist function - among others - to give you the utmost confidence at the wheel.
