Thankfully, there are some solid European alternatives such as the 2023 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and the 2023 Jaguar F-Pace.

The 2023 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the more-affordable option of the two, starting at around $48,000 for the rear-wheel-drive Sprint trim, while all-wheel drive is an extra $2,000. All other Stelvio trims include all-wheel drive, with the fully loaded Estrema model costing about $61,000. For performance-obsessed enthusiasts, there’s also the 505-hp Stelvio Quadrifoglio, which is available for around $87,000.

The 2023 Jaguar F-Pace starts at around $54,000, more than $5,000 higher than the base Stelvio. However, unlike the Alfa, all F-Paces come with standard all-wheel drive, bringing the price difference down to roughly $3,000 for similarly equipped models. The top-trim F‑Pace R‑Dynamic S model rings in at just over $66,000, which maintains that $5,000 difference from the Stelvio Estrema. Furthermore, if you’re into practical high-performance rides, consider the 542-hp Jaguar F-Pace SVR that starts at around $91,000. Warranty coverage for the F-Pace is five years or 60,000 miles, and Jaguar includes complimentary scheduled maintenance through that period as well.

2023 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. 2023 Jaguar F-Pace: Features

While the Jag is more expensive across the line, it also includes more standard tech and offers a few more options for buyers. For example, it includes a standard 11.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and wireless phone charging. The Stelvio features a smaller 8.8-inch system that supports both smartphone-mirroring apps, but devices must be plugged in to work, and wireless charging is an optional feature.

The Stelvio counters with standard heated front and rear seats and a heated steering wheel, while the F-Pace only features standard heated front thrones.
