Serving Memphis, TN

While there are numerous compact crossovers on the market today, only a handful of these models have the elite reputation and the premium luxuries that you want your next vehicle to have. Both the 2021 Alfa Romeo and the 2021 BMW X3 have comparable starting prices and bold appeal, but they differ in critical areas. What do you need to know about these two lovely crossovers before you narrow down the possibilities to a single model?


The 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio has looks that get noticed, and this elevates pride of ownership among its drivers. Notably, the Stelvio has beautifully sleek surfaces and a V-shaped grille that bisects two lower air vents. The stunning headlights have a rounded element as well as a powerful LED bar that spans over the top and outer edges of the headlights. This lovely SUV’s façade is also defined by perfectly rounded exhaust ports, beautiful curves over the profile, and a subtle liftgate spoiler. The 2021 BMW X3, on the other hand, stands tall with a boxier profile. It has numerous design features that are comparable to those on other BMW models. For example, the grille and side contours clearly identify it as a BMW.


The premium features and individualized style of the Stelvio extend across the two-row cabin. The dashboard is notably stunning with two rounded areas of definition to highlight the instrumentation gauges and an embedded infotainment system screen. The Stelvio’s features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Harman Kardon sound system, wireless device charging, rotary gear selectors, and other equipment. The 2021 BMW X3, on the other hand, has a busier look across its interior. The digital screen for the driver’s instruments is combined with a second screen that floats over the air vents in the center stack. The stack’s many layers also include controls for the sound system and the climate management system. The center console has a gear shifter stick, multiple buttons, and a rotary knob.


For 2021, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio has best-in-class ratings for torque, horsepower, top speed, and acceleration. Notably, it delivers 280 horsepower with the standard engine, and it also has a DNA drive mode selector and all-wheel drive. The base engine in the BMW X3, on the other hand, is a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder twin-turbo engine that produces 248 horsepower.
