2018 Mazda CX-5 vs. 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio: Compare Cars

Sporty and crossover SUV used to go together like oil and water. That’s no longer the case, and luckily for buyers the engineers and designers at Mazda and Alfa Romeo understand that a commanding view out, utility for cargo and gear, all-weather traction, and fun-to-drive aren’t mutually exclusive terms.

Enter the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. As evidenced by base prices $15,000 apart, they’re not direct competitors. For enthusiasts, however, these two are worth cross-shopping.

TCC’s Bottom Line
Remarkably fun to drive and beautiful too, the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is great at driving, less facile at crossover-SUVing. As long as cargo space isn’t your main reason for buying a compact crossover, the 2018 Mazda CX-5 is an excellent, fun-to-drive choice.
