2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs. 2021 BMW X3 in Winnipeg: Engine Comparison

Today, we're getting down to brass tacks: between the 2021 BMW X3 and the 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which SUV posts the best engine performance numbers?

*Note: All specifications for both SUVs are representative of their respective base engine.  

  2021 BMW X3

 Horsepower: 248 best-in-class standard 280

As it turns out, despite the model year difference, the 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio enjoys a healthy advantage over the 2021 BMW X3 in both horsepower and torque. The former's best-in-class standard numbers are a lofty distinction; Winnipeg drivers will experience an increase of 32 horses and 48 lb.-ft. of torque in comparison to the German automaker's SUV. Shooting down straightaways and whipping out of corners will come that much easier to the Italian manufacturer's machine.
