    No easy thing to achieve. That's a tough segment. Congrats to Alfa and FCA.

    Am I the only that finds this strange, let me explain. I live in Chicagoland, the 3rd largest city in the U.S. and since these cars first came out I've seen about 8 of them. I should also state that I drive all over town each day, every day as well. I've seen 1 Stevio and that was yesterday, as I was talking to my buddy about how in the hell could the Guilia could win when you don't ever see them.

    So here's my question, how many of them do you see out where YOU live?

    The Stelvio was ranked at second place in 2018 SUV of the Year, a point behind Honda CR-V that won this year.

    "... Now, three years later, the comprehensively redesigned CR-V has bested another sporty European—this time Alfa Romeo’s surprisingly accomplished Stelvio—by just one vote. ..."

    It's not a sales award, they just drive them and pick which one they think is the best. I see more Maseratis around here than Alfa Romeos. I'm sure that Alfa and FIAT are still just about the car brands with the least amount of dealerships, and they sell less than just about everyone. FIAT just started 5 years ago, Alfa more recently, so they are just trying to grow the brand globally and advertise more like with the new Formula 1 deal.
