We'd be pretty happy with the base Stelvio plus the two Driver Assistance packages, which would add $2,150 to the bottom line. There really isn't a lot of daylight between the prices of these two grades. Once you get past 40 grand, does a thousand here or there make much difference? Find an Alfa Romeo Stelvio for sale

2017 BMW X3 -- Offering an array of strong performing engines, the X3 is in the top tier of compact sporty luxury crossovers. Sure, it's a bit on the expensive side, but five minutes behind the wheel and you'll forget the price.
2018 Audi Q5 -- Audi demonstrates its talent for interior styling and craftsmanship in the Q5, which is redesigned for 2018. It now rides on the A4 platform, translating into a smoother ride. There's more driver-assist/safety technology, too.
2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC -- Based on the C-Class, the GLC is sort of the middle-of-the-road or baby-bear entry in the small luxury category. It's not too anything, but just right in most areas.
2018 Jaguar F-PACE -- Three engine choices for 2018, including a new 4-cylinder, give this crossover broad appeal among the compact luxury audience. A 6-trim pecking order provides plenty of choices in determining standard equipment and price.
