Alfa Romeo’s Stelvio SUV has made landfall in South Africa! Take a look at specification and pricing below.
The Stelvio is Alfa Romeo’s first ever SUV and it is now available in South Africa. The Stelvio is produced at FCA’s plant in Cassino, Italy and from launch, it will be available in Super guise with a Stelvio First Edition also offered to buyers. The Stelvio can be had in 11 body colours with a choice of 3 alloy wheel designs with sizes ranging from 18- to 20-inches in size.
Only 1 engine variant will be offered in SA and sadly, the potent Stelvio Quadrifoglio has not been earmarked for SA.
In South Africa, the Stelvio is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine with outputs of 206 kW and 400 Nm of torque. An 8-speed automatic transmission is fitted as standard and power is directed to all 4 wheels with Alfa’s Q4 all-wheel drive system. The Stelvio is capable of sprinting from zero to 100 kph in 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 230 kph. A total of 3 driving modes are offered including Dynamic, Natural (Normal) and Advanced Efficiency.
The Q4 all-wheel drive system monitors various parameters to optimise torque distribution between the front and rear axles. In normal driving conditions, 100% torque is sent to the rear axle and as the wheels reach their grip limit, the Stelvio will automatically transfer 50% of the torque to the front axle to ensure maximum traction.
Available in Super and First Edition guises, the Stelvio's interior comes well-equipped as standard with a range of optional features on offer.
The Stelvio Super is fitted with 18-inch wheels as standard and the interior benefits from leather upholstery in either black, brown or red. Matching colour trim is found on the dashboard, door panels and steel sill insert. A Luxury Pack is also offered as an option which will add electric seat adjustment and seat heating as well as wood inserts, aluminium inserts and steel pedal trims. An 8-speaker sound system is standard.
The Stelvio First Edition is equipped with all the standard features found on the Super, but adds 20-inch alloy wheels, full grain leather upholstery, a 10 speaker sound system, active cruise control, blind spot monitoring and an electric sunroof. A 14-speaker Harmon Kardon sound system is offered as an option.
Other standard interior features include dual-zone climate control and an 8.8-inch Alfa Connect infotainment system with voice recognition, Bluetooth and USB connectivity and navigation.
The Stelvio offers a large 525-litre luggage bay with an electronic tailgate with 3 different opening levels.
Key safety features include an Integrated Brake System (IBS), Forward Collision Warning, Autonomous Emergency brake with pedestrian detection, Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-path Detection and Active Cruise Control.
