Alfa Romeo Stelvio review - Reliability and safety

The Stelvio deStrong 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. There sporty SUV achieved a 97 per cent score for adult occupant safety and 84 per cent for child passenger protection.

Standard safety kit is good, with front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and active cruise control all included. The Veloce Ti model is laden with extra active kit, comprising Active Blind Spot Assist, a Driver Attention Alert, Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Lane Keeping Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and Highway Assist which combines active cruise control and lane centering technology for semi-autonomous highway driving.

Buyers looking at Sprint or Veloce versions, but wanting this extra safety tech, will have to pay a further £1,000 to specify the Driver Assistance pack. 

The Stelvio didn't feature in our Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, although the Giulia - with which the Stelvio shares a platform - has enjoyed success in the Best cars to own poll over recent years.

Warranty

Alfa Romeo offers a standard three-year warranty for the Stelvio, with the opportunity to extend cover for a further 12 or 24 months at extra cost. A year's roadside assistance is also included.

Servicing

Buyers can opt for one of Alfa's tailored service plans that relate to how you use your car and how many miles you cover over a 12 month period.
