Alfa Romeo Stelvio review - Reliability and Safety

Strong crash-test results, with positive customer feedback on brand performance

Like its Giulia sibling, with which it shares key components, construction and safety features, the Stelvio managed a full five-star rating when it was tested by Euro NCAP.

Although the Stelvio didn't feature in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, the Giulia finished in an impressive 3rd place, with excellent scores for ride and handling, safety and the engine and gearbox categories, which should inspire some confidence in the mechanical underpinnings. Alfa Romeo went one better and placed second out of 30 manufacturers. Although there was a higher than average percentage of owners reporting faults, the general feedback was of a reliable product, so presumably any issues are rather minor, or dealers ensure they fix any problem with efficiency and professionalism.
