Following the launch of the all-new Giulia premium sedan lineup, Alfa Romeo is now prepping to introduce the Stelvio SUV lineup at the New York Auto Show.
Three models of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV will be introduced at the show marking the brand’s entry into the second fastest-growing premium segment. The base Stelvio has a 2.0L turbo-engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission system spawning 280 horsepower and 306 lb.-ft of torque. The standard features include carbon-fiber drive shaft, dual exhaust tips, 18-inch aluminum wheels, leather seats, backup camera with rear parking sensors, remote start and key-less entry.
The mid-range Stelvio Ti model carries the same engine, but with additional luxury facilities such as front park sensors, wooden interior, 19-inch wheels, 8.8-inch infotainment display, heated front seats and steering wheel. Customers can also opt for the Sport Package, which adds larger 20-inch wheels, 12-way powered leather seats with 4-way lumbar support, steering column-mounted aluminum paddle shifters, sport steering wheel, gloss black window tint and more. The Stelvio Ti also comes with an exclusive Lusso package, which adds even more luxurious features.
The range topping Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio boasts an all-aluminum direct-injection 2.9L twin-turbo V6 engine churning out 505 horsepower and 443 lb.-ft of torque. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 177 mph. In addition to high-end luxurious equipment, the Stelvio Quadrifolgio has a four-mode Alfa DNA Pro drive mode selector, which ensures an amazing drive under different driving conditions. Thanks to the Q4 all-wheel drive system, which is standard on all the models, the Stelvio delivers an excellent performance on all-sorts of terrains.
Besides the amazing exterior and interior features, the Stelvio SUV also incorporates class-leading safety features including full-speed forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring and more.
We did not hear anything about pricing from the automaker yet, but we do know it will hit the U.S roads later this year as a 2018 model.
