2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

 

Inspired by the sport heritage of Alfa Romeo, the  2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio embraces the traveling spirit that defines a true SUV. Experience the Art of living thanks to the Stelvio.

Why Stelvio? The Stelvio Pass is a mountain pass in northern Italy, at an elevation of 2,757 m above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, just 13 m below France’s Col de l’Iseran.

The muscular proportions, simplistic elegance and high-quality surface finishes across this beautiful 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio exudes stunning Italian style with a finesse of Alfa Romeo heritage, athletically sharp body lines and details. The Stelvio offers race-inspired performance, real-world driving confidence, state-of-the-art technologies, seductive Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size SUV segment.

Our first impression of this powerful SUV is the iconic Alfa Romeo badging of the front grill, and the LED light signature, they are striking as is the tail lights to the exhaust tip.

Standard AWD on all models. Thank Powered by 280 hp engine with 306 pound feet of torque from an aluminum 2L Turbo engine, backed by an 8-speed automatic transmission. Or you can go for the Quadrifoglio, which is a 2.9 L TwinTurbo V6 engine putting out 505 hp and for 143 pound feet of torque. The bigger engine, stokes a fire from within the driver.

Lots of carbon fiber, aluminum are light weighted material that makes the vehicle handle better and perform better than others.

The decisive steering makes you feel like you are driving a sports car and not an SUV. The driver centric environment really helps optimize driving performance and still gives you the ability to drive in four different modes which includes Race mode in the Quadrifoglio model. We love the flat bottom Sport steering wheel.

State-of-the-art safety features are as expected. Including an electrically controlled active transfer case, all-wheel-drive, and a long list of driver assistance features including blind spot detection, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, Lane departure warning with autonomous emergency braking with forward collision warning to help keep you safe on the road.
