2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. 2021 BMW X3 in Vancouver, BC

At Alfa Romeo of Vancouver, we're committed to offering our customers the best in Italian luxury automation. Alfa Romeo's latest SUV, the 2021 Stelvio, has hit the market, and we're providing drivers with a thorough, detailed comparison vs. the new BMW X3 as part of our extensive Alfa Romeo Stelvio model research. Those based in Vancouver, BC or any of the nearby areas of Burnaby, White Rock, Langley, Surrey, or Coquitlam can find out how our Italian luxury SUV bests the BMW X3 below before visiting our dealership to get intimately acquainted with it.

Exterior Design

As a prime product of first-rate Italian craftsmanship and attention to detail, the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio joins the market with an awe-inspiring design unrivaled by any other model in its class, the BMW X3 included. The Italian automaker's available five-hole wheels and patented V Scudetto grille punctuate a stunning exterior that's both sporty and elegant in equal measure. Furthermore, the new Stelvio's curvaceous body and perfectly placed lines inspire the utmost confidence in every driver that takes its wheel. This Italian SUV also enters its new model year with several striking new body colours, including Misano Blue Metallic, for those looking to add a personal touch to their luxury motor. As for the X3, this BMW offering's exterior may be clean and mature, but it bears few changes from its outgoing model and remains marred by tiny side mirrors.

Interior Design

When comparing these SUVs' respective cabins, the 2021 Stelvio gets the nod. Indeed, this Italian luxury SUV bears proof of Alfa Romeo's attention to detail from front to back. Standard leather upholstery lines this Alfa Romeo model's front seats, with stunning aluminum accents punctuating its doors, centre console, and dash. Compelling options abound for those who enjoy a personalized interior, as Alfa Romeo offers a handful of single and two-tone colour options, as well as several luxury upholstery options for its driver-centric cabin. Sportier types can opt for carbon fibre trim, with wood trim available to those who value sophistication more than most. The BMW X3, by comparison, is comfortable enough and decently equipped, but like its exterior, its cabin design grows more and more dated with every model year.

If you'd like to treat yourself to a stylish, comfortable, and luxurious automotive experience, our finance centre will gladly help you make the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio yours.


The new Stelvio has taken its segment by storm with best-in-class power, torque, and acceleration. Not only does it boast a solid 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque thanks to its 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, this Italian SUV also hits 100 km/h in under six seconds and comes with a smooth eight-speed automatic transmission. It may be an SUV, but the 2021 Stelvio performs like a sport sedan, offering deft handling and the most balanced of rides to go with its riveting acceleration and power.

Thrill-seekers will also be excited to hear the Stelvio Quadrifoglio trim packs a twin-turbo V6 engine with a formidable 505 horses and reaches 100 km/h in under four seconds. As for the BMW X3, this long-running SUV's base engine trails the Alfa Romeo Stelvio's by more than 30 horsepower, offers slower acceleration and is tarnished by finicky start/stop technology.

Contact our dealership at your convenience for a proper look at the latest Stelvio SUV's riveting performance.

Safety Features

Alfa Romeo's flagship SUV enters 2021 with solid safety ratings and an extensive suite of available driver-assist technology. The BMW X3's safety technology is respectable, but the new Stelvio separates itself from its rival with the available Active Driver Assistance Package. In addition to a semi-autonomous driving mode, this popular package includes a Forward Collision Warning Plus feature, traffic sign recognition, a lane-keeping assist function, and highway and traffic jam assist. Between this comprehensive safety suite, its formidable hardware, and luxury design, the 2021 Stelvio allows you to take the wheel with confidence and a clear head.
