When it comes to thrilling rides in a compact and functional SUV, there are few cars out there that can beat the 2021 BMW X2. It features a plush cabin that is designed to ensure that all the controls are easily within your reach. With a roomy cabin and a generous trunk, the 2021 X2 is a highly functional car that can easily handle school and shopping runs. It however retains its sporty ride and still delivers a great ride quality.
Alfa Romeo seemed to have designed the 2021 Stelvio to be a car that delivers a sporty ride at the expense of functionality and comfort. With that in mind, the 2021 Stelvio is great to look at and the interior fairly comfortable. However, there is limited space at the rear seat and even less space in the luggage area.
In this article, we compare the two SUVs and deliver a verdict on which one is the best.
Design & Style
With a refreshed grille and more options when it comes to wheel designs, the 2021 BMW X2 looks and feels stylish. The 2021 X2 has a plush interior with an upscale look that bolsters its premium heritage. The instrument panel is also well designed with no clutter and with great attention to detail.
The 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is equally well designed. The exterior is sporty and gives the Stelvio an imposing stance that one would expect from SUVs at a much higher price point. However, this was not extended to the interior and much of the cabin is covered by cheap plastic material that takes away from its premium look.
Technology & Safety
BMW has outfitted the 2021 X2 with a variety of tech features that are sure to thrill all X2 enthusiasts. These include an 8.8-inch infotainment display that has no lag and features clear graphics. The seven-speaker audio system is great and while an upgrade option exists, the standard audio system is quite sufficient.
With the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, infotainment is via an 8.8-inch display that can be controlled by touch. The build quality of the system is not as responsive as in the 2021 X2 and sensing this, the engineers at Alfa Romeo added a rotary controller to supplement the touchscreen.
With the 2021 X2, buyers get a four-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers an impressive performance. Mated with 8-speed automatic transmission, the 2021 X2 handles smoothly on both highways and rough roads. The superb suspension system makes for excellent ride quality as well.
The 2021 Stelvio on the other hand is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that offers sufficient power to the Stelvio. The car handles well and is a thrill to drive around corners. The suspension is also quite good and passengers can expect a refined ride even over uneven terrain.
The Bottom Line
While both the 2021 X2 and the 2021 Stelvio occupy the same niche, the 2021 X2 is by far a much more superior car. It handles better and has a better interior design. It also is more well-rounded, with ample cargo and cabin space. For these reasons, the 2021 X2 wins this comparison.
