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 the remaining grades, but if you are moving up, the Ti Sport would be our second choice. Once you get past 40 grand, does a thousand here or there make much difference? Find an Alfa Romeo Stelvio for sale
