The first Alfa Romeo SUV is born, delivering outstanding performance and sporty style. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is offered in three new versions , Stelvio, Stelvio Super and Stelvio Business. There are also the “First Edition”, launched a few weeks ago at EMEA, and the Quadrifoglio version, which received its world premiere in Los Angeles last November.
Externally, its attractive line is a blend of tradition, design and performance. Achieving this mix, now as in the past, involves combining the three ingredients of Alfa Romeo design: proportion, simplicity and top-quality surfacing.
The same elegantly sporty imprint is found in the interior, which is simple and stylish. The driver is central, a concept underlined by the diagonal tunnel, the slightly undulating dashboard and the small, direct-ratio, leather-wrapped steering wheel that adapts effectively to all driving styles. Also provided is a clear TFT colour information display cluster which supplies all essential information, while the driver/car interface consists of two rotary controls for easy, immediate use of the Alfa DNA selector and Alfa Connect system. Depending on the version, Alfa Connect has a 6.5″ or 8.8″ high resolution display, with integral 3D navigation function, developed in partnership with Magneti Marelli.
Alfa Romeo Stelvio features a large number of safety systems, available as standard or optionals depending on the version, like Integrated Brake System, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Brake with pedestrian detection.
The Stelvio is offered with engines: 280 HP 2.0 Turbocharged petrol-fuelled and 2.2 Diesel of 210 HP. They are combined with the automatic 8-speed transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive., these engines belong to a new-generation of all-aluminium four-cylinder units with carbon fibre drive shaft. The range will be completed with new engines including the 200 HP 2.0 Turbocharged petrol-fuelled and the 180 HP 2.2 Diesel, both with an automatic 8-speed transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive. The 180 HP 2.2 Diesel will also be available with real wheel drive.
