When it comes to the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, you get a compact SUV that is fun to drive and quite practical. It may not have the performance pedigree of the 2021 X4 M but it will handle the twists and turns with aplomb.

Design & Style

With a sloping roofline and aggressive stance, the 2021 X4 M looks that the sports SUV that it is. The cabin is well decked out with high-quality materials.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 X4 M features a ten-inch infotainment system that is controlled by BMW’s brilliant iDrive software. The system allows for gesture commands as well as voice commands.

These engines are what give the 2021 X4 M such incredible power and speed. Handling is superb as one would expect from a BMW and the X4 M delivers a quiet and composed drive off the race track.
