2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs 2021 Lexus RX

The first competitor against the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is one of its biggest competitors in the luxury crossover segment, the 2021 Lexus RX 350. Both of these crossovers offer sophisticated styling and luxurious interiors, but which one will fit your lifestyle best? Let's take a look at these two in a side-by-side comparison to see.

2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Power & Handling

The 2021 Alfa Stelvio is one of the most exciting performance SUVs on the market, offering the most powerful base engine in its class. The 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 delivers 280-horsepower. When equipped with all-wheel drive, it accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.5 seconds. For families that need more power, the 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 provides an outstanding 505 horsepower. The Stelvio offers drivers a near-perfect weight distribution, resulting in agile handling for a crossover. The Stelvio is the only SUV in its class to include a standard carbon-fiber driveshaft, which helps to deliver its best-in-class standard power-to-weight ratio and optimal handling capabilities.

2021 Lexus RX Power & Handling

The Lexus RX comes with a 295 horsepower3.5-liter V6 that combines exhilarating power with impressive fuel efficiency. Equipped with a dual Variable Valve Timing with an Intelligence system, power and fuel economy culminate in dynamic engine performance. This engine drives the front wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission, with paddle shifters are mounted under the steering wheel. Lexus does offer a hybrid option in the RX. The hybrid 2021 RX 450h and RX 450hL have a less powerful version of the 3.5-liter V6. It's paired with a battery-electric powertrain for a total system output of 308 horsepower. 

2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Features & Design

The 2021 Stelvio demonstrates Italy's reputation for impressive performance, design, and the combination of both. A signature of speed and integral to Alfa Romeo vehicles for nearly 100 years, the V Scudetto grille appeared in its original form in 1934 and has evolved to its current, unmistakable form. The center console and steering wheel feature Italian oak trim. The wireless charging helps keep your cabin clear from clutter and focuses on the gorgeous center console, not on weirs. With Apple CarPlay support, Android Auto integration, and an available hands-free power liftgate, the Stelvio has everything you'd expect in luxury, five-door performance SUV. In addition to a backup camera, rear park sensors, and Forward Collision Warning Plus, the Stelvio offers an Active Driver Assistance Package that includes semi-autonomous driving technology to help give you more peace of mind every time you drive.

2021 Lexus RX Features & Design

The cabin of the 2021 RX provides upscale materials with superb fit and finish. The analog clock is an exquisite touch. The overall design is distinct but not as sophisticated or flowing as Stelvio's. Every RX model comes with a large infotainment screen controlled by a mouse-like controller mounted in the center console. This setup is difficult to use and hasn't been particularly well-received. The standard RX has 16.0 cubic feet behind the second row that expands to 32.6 when the seat is dropped. Premium Triple-Beam LED headlamps. The RX offers a refined look. At the same time, the bold front and rear fascias complement its dynamic yet elegant silhouette. The Lexus RX offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a convenient touchscreen, and an available audio system that rivals six-figure home systems.

Conclusion:

As you can clearly see, the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio offers far more power; it's 505 horsepower to Lexus' 295 horsepower! The Stelvio blows the doors off the Lexus.
