Comparatif vidéo - Alfa Romeo Stelvio vs Audi Q5 : domination en question (at http://www.caradisiac.com/comparatif-video-alfa-romeo-stelvio-vs-audi-q5-domination-en-question-113899.htm )
This, a major French automotive webmagazine, judges the Alfa Stelvio to be the superior d-'suv' over the Audi Q5. Aha, after the Giulia 'beating' bmw is almost all automedia comparo-s in all major countries, terrific going fca/Alfa!
Hmm, could the Stelvio be the outright european and global markets hit that say the Jaguar F-Pace has been? Better than it in Europe at least, likely/perhaps, just as the Giulia has fared so much better than the Jaguar XE there?
btw, an update from Richard Palmer and Marchionne on the Stelvio's initial European sales (yesterday's analyst concall): 1000 delivered already, 10000 orders in-hand already.
They're claiming 230000 Alfa-s plus Maserati-s will be sold globally by fca this year (target.) And that this seemingly stretch target will be achieved as much through expanded distribution (esp in china and the usa, i suppose) as anything else.
Jeremy Clarckson thinks the Stelvio is the best SUV ever:

Thank you for reposting.
You will forgive me if I don't care what Clarkson thinks... since he will say whatever gives him the highest ratings. Right now backing Alfa is the ratings-getter.
What, you’re surprised? Or do you really think the Sebring convertible was the worst car ever made?
Did I talk about the Sebring in my post ? No I did not
What were you trying to say ? Do you think it's unfair saying good things about the Stelvio ?
Clarkson previously described the Sebring convertible as the worst car ever made. Like a lot of his humour, it was a lazy categorisation that appeals to his readership, made worse by the fact that he does know better.
Clarkson is a decent comic writer, and is really, really good at recognising stereotypes, often before anyone else has put them into words. While it's just as possible that he's catching the general mood that has Alfa as the plucky David against the German Goliath, rather than actually liking the Stelvio, his previous writings and TV work suggests that he genuinely does like Alfa Romeos, and that this is a good one.
Precisely. I am saying the source is about as unbiased and reliable as [pick your most hated partisan media here].
Or, to put it another way, I trust Clarkson to give an unbiased, realistic review based on his own beliefs, about as much as I trust Consumer Reports to judge a Jeep Wrangler as they would a Honda Accord — and to keep in mind that it’s a purpose built off-road machine and not a family sedan.
When you look at a review, you have to consider the credibility of the source. When someone tells you what they think of the President’s latest speech, if it’s Sean Spicer or Steven Colbert, you’re likely to stop and think, “Maybe they have a slight bias here and I shouldn’t take them too seriously.” Ditto car reviews/reviewers.
The Stelvio being Digital Manufacturing ("4.0") put-together, wcm etc, at the award-winning, presumably bleeding-edge Cassino, Alfa plant.
