2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio | Competition INFINITI of Smithtown

2019 INFINITI QX50 vs. 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

The 2019 INFINITI QX50 has received praise for its looks, quiet interior, state of the art engine and safety tech. However, Alfa Romeo has made a splash in the SUV market with the release of their 2019 Stelvio, a vehicle notable for its top of the line handling, Italian flair and dynamic engine.

Design & Style

The Stelvio is the very first SUV to be released by Alfa Romeo, and they’ve done an outstanding job overall. The designers shunned straight lines in favor of curves, with a trilobo grille in front. The vehicle uses a dual box design with a roof that slopes and rear that is tapered. Inside, the infotainment system has been embedded within the dashboard and drivers will control the vehicle with steering that is flat bottomed. The INFINITI QX50 also pulled no punches when it comes to design; it is lovely from every angle. It uses a grille that is double arched, a kink in the roof pillar that is prominent, and inside passengers will be treated to wood that is open pore, headliners made of blue suede and an infotainment system that is dual screen.

Technology & Safety

The QX50 is designed to avoid collisions before they occur. It does so through warnings for frontal collisions, emergency brakes which are automatic, and a camera in the rearview. Both surround view and blind area monitoring are available on the Luxe trim, along with parking sensors and ProPilot Assist. Inside passengers will be comforted by climate control which is dual zone, Bluetooth support, keyless ignition and seats in front that can be power adjusted.  Each Stelvio comes equipped with standard parking sensors in the rear, along with Drivers Assistance, blind area monitoring, cruise control which is adaptive, notifications when departing lanes and emergency automatic brakes. Inside, passengers will enjoy leather seats that are heated, wood trim, infotainment screens, and satellite radio.


The Alfa Romeo Stelvio can be purchased with two drivetrains or engines. The base model is powered by a 2 liter engine that is 4 cylinders, turbocharged, and capable of producing 280 horsepower with 306 pound of torque, allowing it to go from zero to sixty in about 5.4 seconds. The INFINITI QX50 is also powered by a 2 liter engine, which has been praised for its ingenuity. It can produce 268 horsepower and is designed to conserve fuel when needed.

The Bottom Line

Both of these SUVs are exceptional. They are attractive, comfortable and provide stellar performance. However, some passengers have complained about the rear seat in the Stelvio, calling it cramped, and compared to the QX50’s interior, the cabin of the Stelvio is of lower quality, so the INFINITI wins.
