And now the Italians

The Alfa Stelvio certainly seems like it could directly compete with the F-Pace. It remains to be seen in what time frame, but the initial impression is interesting:

I don't think JLR has anything to worry about. IMHO the styling leaves a lot to be desired.

As mentioned in another post "styling is very subjective".
I much prefer the FP.
To me this Alfa doesn't look like an SUV. YMMV

"...The Stelvio would drive circles round the soon-to-be-replaced X3, is a more emotional piece of kit than the nicely balanced Q5, and feels a bit more refined than Jaguar’s F-Pace. ..."


Interesting...


Not a fan of the looks, of any of the new Alfas actually. But competition is always good!

I don't care for the look at all. Feels like a cheap Hyundai or Kia based on the design.

I do like the looks of the new Giulia Quadrafandango, or whatever it's called.
I would like one of those in my stable

Certainly not as a replacement for the FP, but as a toy.
Probably fun to drive, but then again I have not seen it in the flesh, just the TV adds.
Wasn't this one of the vehicles on the Grand Tour, that Clarkson drove?
