The First SUV from the first name in Italian performance, Alfa Romeo
There’s something about that logo. That unmistakable emblem featuring a red cross on the right side, the Milano cross of the crusades. On the left, a serpent that appears to be consuming someone. Some assert it is the seal of the House of Visconti. Whatever the origin of the individual symbols, together they mean Alfa Romeo.
And like that emblem, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is more than just the sum of its parts.
The sum of over 100 years of automobile excellence
It begins where Alfa began: the race track. For over 100 years Alfa has been the premier name in Italian racing. Each year building upon the previous years experience. And it’s all been building to this: the 2019 Stelvio.
At its heart is a turbocharged 2 liter 4 cylinder engine, producing 280 horse power. 0 to 60 in 5.4 seconds with 306 lbs of torque. Providing the thrill and excitement only understood by an Alfa Romeo driver. Whether it’s a sports car or sedan, nothing feels like an Alfa. But you already know that. What you might not know is that the Stelvio is like nothing Alfa has created before. Alfa Romeo’s first SUV.
Like nothing you have expected from Alfa Romeo, except the thrill
An SUV that has mistaken itself for a sports car. And it has done such a good job of deluding itself it broke SUV speed records at the proving track of Nürburgring. As you have come to expect from an Alfa, the Stelvio is equipped with an 8 speed automatic transmission with its exclusive DNA drive modes: Dynamic, Natural, and Advanced Efficiency.
The Stelvio’s aluminum construction and carbon fiber drive shaft help split the weight 50/50 across the front and back axles. Add to its existing structure the Performance Package and you get active suspension, mechanical slip differential rear axle, and steering column-mounted aluminum paddle shifters. Available in all wheel drive or rear wheel drive.
Innovations you demand for your life
It comes equipped with the latest technological features like Full Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus, which pays attention to the road even if your attention strays. Audible and visual alerts warn you if you’re too close the car in front of you and if necessary, the vehicle brakes itself. And to help keep your attention on the road, the Stelvio also comes with your choice of smart phone integration systems, Apple Car Play or Android Auto.
The classic styling of an Italian tradition
Both the Stelvio’s exterior and luxurious leather interior come in a variety of colors. And now you can add the Nero Edizone Black package, which adds a sleek black matte finish on the mirrors, wheels and V Scudetto grille surround.
Many options. Many advantages. Individually any one of them would be an enviable feature for an automobile. Together, they make the Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
