2022 BMW X3 M vs. 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio


The BMW X3 M and the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio are two of the most exciting performance vehicles on the market. Both cars offer tremendous performance for their respective price points, but which is best for you? We’ll break down all their positives and negatives to help you decide which one might be better suited for your daily driving needs.

Design & Style

  • Exterior Design

With the 2022 BMW X3 M, you get a more aggressive look. The front grille is redesigned and features vertical slats; there are new bumpers, side skirts, and rear diffusers. This all helps create a more muscular appearance that suggests this SUV is ready to go off-road anytime.

In contrast, the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio looks more traditional thanks to its large front grille and horizontal taillights. While it’s not as bold or edgy as its rival BMW, it does have an elegant styling that will appeal to some people who prefer a more sophisticated design over something bolder looking like what’s found on the X3 M model here today.

The one area where these two SUVs differ most significantly when comparing their designs is their track widths, which affects how much power each vehicle appears under its hoods – even though both SUVs have similar power outputs under their hoods!

  • Interior Design

Regarding interior design, the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is the winner. The cabin is laid out nicely and feels luxurious. You’ll find soft-touch materials, leather upholstery, and metal trimming throughout. It also has a more modern design than our competitors, with its large touchscreen infotainment system sitting atop an instrument panel across your dashboard.

The 2022 BMW X3 M has a nicer overall cabin than its rival but still falls short in some areas compared to its competitors like Alfa Romeo’s offering. Its interior may look dated due to its center stack featuring buttons instead of touch controls for navigating through menus on your infotainment screen above it – this is something you’d expect from a vehicle released several years ago, not one built just a few months ago! In addition, it doesn’t have as much rear legroom as some rivals, which makes for cramped space for passengers.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technology and safety features, BMW has the edge. The 2022 BMW X3 M comes with a 10-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and a 12-speaker stereo system. The 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio offers a smaller 7-inch infotainment system without any built-in functionality for your smartphone. It also only has an eight-speaker stereo system.

The 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio does have better crash ratings than its German counterpart. Still, it’s not as safe on paper as other luxury SUVs in its class, like the 2022 Mercedes GLE 400 Coupe or 2022 Porsche Macan Turbo S.


The BMW X3 M has a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V8 engine with 473 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of torque. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio has a twin-turbocharged 2.9L V6 engine with 510 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque.

The BMW X3 M is estimated to get 18 mpg city/24 highway/20 combined, while the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is estimated to get 20 mpg city/27 highway/22 combined.

The Bottom Line

The 2022 BMW X3 M is the clear winner here. It’s got more power, nicer inside and out, and has better tech and driver aids. The 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a good car, but you’d be better off saving money if you’re looking for raw performance.
