Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2021 vs Mercedes-Benz GLC 2021: Allow passion and feelings to guide you

We as humans usually attempt to make sensible choices. When faced with an important decision such as purchasing a new vehicle, we'll err on the side of caution and get what everyone else has. We do this to avoid potential regrets but in this situation, not allowing passion to guide you will be a mistake.

Do it because it feels right

Doing something for oneself can occasionally lead to feelings of guilt but not in this instance. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the one premium SUV, among so many others, that will get you to look back at it every time after parking it. As humans, we love beautiful things and the Stelvio's seductive curves and voluntary simplicity overall cannot be faulted. The Mercedes-Benz GLC will blend into all backgrounds and will not generate the pride an Alfa Romeo can.

Alfa Romeo designs and builds every vehicle they make with passion and this love for the automobile as a whole is not only undeniable, but it can be felt by owners.

Feeling special

The Stelvio's cabin and dashboard are visually sorted, consistent, and entirely dedicated to the art of driving. The only distractions from driving will come from the exquisite craftsmanship and impressive quality. The premium materials are exquisite and there's form and function in the way the controls are laid out. In fact, the driving controls are sorted together for the ultimate in cockpit-like control. And let's not forget the exceptional Formula One-inspired steering wheel.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC's cabin lacks energy, passion, and visual oneness. The standard 7-inch unit swells gracelessly at the top of the center stack. Meanwhile, the Stelvio's included 8.8-inch display screen is stylishly integrated into the dashboard, improving forward visibility. This is in line with Alfa Romeo's desire to enhance the driving experience no matter what needs to be done.

The feeling of power

Alfa Romeo engineers made certain that passions would be ignited at the touch of the start button. This is why they fitted a turbocharged 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine under the sculpted hood. This mill produces 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful of its kind among its direct competitors. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is also equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine however, it's not quite in the same league. With 255 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, it won't deliver the same level of exhilarating performance.

These same Alfa Romeo engineers also built in an unwavering sense of control for the driver. This powerful feeling is delivered straight to the driver thanks to the Stelvio's impressive and sport-tuned chassis. This is part of la meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion) spirit which dictates that all drive components, from steering, brakes, and suspension, must be tuned for the most passion-filled and rewarding driving experience possible.
