Alfa Romeo has been known for its elegance and captivating driving experience for many decade. Thankfully, they have reentered the US market and began to rebuild their lineup now with the amazing new Stelvio which is the first luxury SUV from this brand. This may be a bit of a late entry to the party of the luxury SUV market but it’s one that has exactly what you’re looking for when you want a vehicle that has the appeal of the passion we want to see from this brand and from a new model that also brings you the power, performance and premium appeal you’re after.
One of the best ways the new Stelvio ensures you can have the right quality ride for you is by being what it should be and not too much. This SUV is a two-row/five-passenger model that stands out with pure luxury and performance. The folks at Alfa Romeo didn’t try to pack a third-row into this crossover, which was the right thing to do. You’ll not only love the look of the Stelvio, but you’ll be amazed by the price which doesn’t feel like it’s playing in the high priced class at all.
What can you find with this new SUV? You’ll find five trims, standard AWD, a powerful but small and efficient engine and much more. As this new SUV catches on in the market we can expect to see the Quadrifoglio variant offered in the future as the high-performance V6 model that will bring in the 505-horsepower that we already see with the sedan model from Alfa. This new SUV is one that you’ll certainly love to drive if you want something that has the balance you want and the quickness you’ve been looking for.
To start with we’ll have the base model of the powertrain for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio which is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine is attached to an impressive ZF eight-speed automatic transmission to give you the quality driving you want to have on the road. This powertrain is one that uses the three-mode selector which is called Alfa DNA for Dynamic, Natural and Advanced for you to choose. As we start to see the new Qadrifoglio added to the mix we’ll have a 2.9-liter twin turbocharged V6 model that brings in 505 horsepower and 443 lb.-ft. of torque for us to enjoy the quality ride and performance.
Looking at the standard items offered, you’re going to enjoy this SUV in five trims: Base, Sport, Ti, Ti Sport and Ti Lusso. The base model brings you a high-quality leather interior, ten-way power front seats, a power liftgate, dual zone climate controls, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, rain sensing wipers, an eight-speaker audios system, four USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Sport models offer you a sport tuned suspension, steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and 19-inch wheels in replace of the standard 18-inch models.
Moving to the options you’re looking to enjoy on this SUV you can have the Ti with heated front seats and steering wheel, front parking sensors, a larger 8.8-inch wide screen display. The Ti Sport offers the option of 20-inch wheels, 12-way power adjustable sport seats, while the Ti Lusso brings you wood accents, a leather upholstery and more. Other stand-alone items include a navigation system, a Harman/Kardon premium audio system, a dual pane sunroof and other packages. You’ll be able to package up this SUV the right way for you without too much trouble at all when you take a look at what you can have on the Stelvio.
If you’re looking for an excellent crossover luxury SUV to drive and know that you only need five seats, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a new model that can be the right choice for you on the market. Take a look at this vehicle and let it become the one that you’ll love to drive. Elegance can be at its finest for you in the Stelvio and you’ll still have the ability to carry your kids or your friends along with you to wherever you need to go.
