from the side it looks like a macan to me....good or bad depending on your view of the macan I guess

Flub!
That was exactly my thought when I show he’s white one sitting on the driveway, it’s not a carbon copy but the overall shape definitely give a Macan feel.

(j/k) Wonder if the Stelvio was penned by the Chinese, they have a history of copying successful designs. LOL

Well I love the look of the Stelvio, but then I’m also a bit of an Alfa fan anyway. For me it’s the next best looking SUV after the F Pace. 😉

I was however sadly disappointed with the interior finish and it was the launch Milano Edition I drove. Coming from someone who drives a Prestige with lots of plastic that’s a bit worrying! The immediate £3,000 dealer contribution towards your deposit can’t help residuals much either.

Hope it goes well for you. It’s certainly a tremendous driving experience, which after all Alfa’s are renowned for.

I must be a plastic lover as while i admit the finer grain on the Fpace makes it classier I find the interior fine.
The driving experience is the best.
AR UK don't have the marketing budget of Jaguar so they wanted cars on the road as a way of advertising so deals are to be had.
As far as residuals my Jan 2017 Fpace lost £16,000 in 8 months I can't see the Alfa being worse than that

If you load any car to the balls then you are going to lose and lose BIG TIME, if sensible and pick wisely from the option list you will come away as good as a Range Rover or Porsche.

Yes I think Carl had the worst value car from this point of view and thankfully for him he went rejection route as he would have lost a bundle quickly.
Essentially get the higher spec car as extras are pretty much irrelevant on price and it becomes choice rather than big price differences.

I’ve had an Alfa and liked it. Didn’t break down or rust either :)

kind of why I quite like PCP. basically funding the depreciation over a fixed period at a cost I know I can easily afford. Finance company will set a conservative termination value to limit their downside risk. Hopefully means that there's a nice surprise waiting in 3 years time, or earlier if I try and do something creative.

..which you do, 'cause guess what, these leasing companies aren't charities. If you have the capital to buy outright, best not to lease in any form.
