About the Alfa Romeo Stelvio

The Stelvio is a vehicle that overflows with style, performance, and versatility. This is an SUV that goes above and beyond the expectations of the rest of its class, with a 2.0-liter turbo engine that delivers 280 horsepower, 306 lb-ft torque, and a top speed of 144 mph. The Stelvio also has an available Q4 All-Wheel-Drive system that gives the control of AWD but keeps the performance and feel of rear-wheel-drive. The premium interior complements its performance with a maximum cargo capacity of 56.5 cubic feet with the 40/20/40 split rear seats folded down. Finally, the Stelvio comes equipped with several driver-assist features such as a Rear Back-Up Camera and available Lane Departure Warning or Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning Plus to help you avoid an accident. With the Stelvio, Alfa Romeo puts its best foot forward with power, safety, and luxury made with the driver in mind.

What’s New for 2019

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is available in both Rear Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive versions and comes standard with Android Auto™ and Google Apple CarPlay®. Looking to personalize your Stelvio? The 2019 models now offer the “Nero Edizione” package which accents your Stelvio with 20-inch Miron Black Sport aluminum wheels, a Dark Miron V-Scudetto grille surround, monochromatic heel caps, Gloss Black roof rails, and other dark and black gloss exterior accents.

What the Critics Say

Most crossover SUVs trade heavily on their ability to move things and ferry people. The 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, however, prioritizes the driving experience over such plebeian concerns. It strives to be the driver’s pick among premium compact crossover SUVs – vehicles that generally aren’t known for their dynamic attributes. … There are compromises, of course. The Stelvio gives up some cargo volume and towing capacity to its competitors, while the interior is a mixed bag of material choices. But if you’re searching for a sport-oriented premium crossover, this is one of the best.” – Edmunds
Just about every luxury automaker aspires to put the ‘sport’ in their sport-utility vehicle, but few have found a formula that fights the physics inherent in a higher-riding, 2-ton hauler. Count Alfa among the minority that has made a crossover SUV that is legitimately fun to drive.” – Kelley Blue Book

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Performance

Turbocharged Performance

Demonstrating no compromises in performance, the 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes standard with an all-aluminum 2.0-liter Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 206 lb-ft of torque. The Stelvio pairs this powerplant with an 8-speed automatic transmission featuring a lock-up clutch that gives a greater in-gear acceleration to get the most torque from the engine as possible. Looking for even more performance? The range-topping Stelvio Quadrifolglio adds a Ferrari-built 2.9L turbocharged V6 delivering a head-snapping 505 horsepower and a blistering 0 to 60 time of just 3.6 seconds.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Technology

Driver-Focused Technology

Stelvio tech is designed to assist, not insulate the driver – and includes performance and infotainment features tailor-made for the driver-experience. Key amongst them is the Alfa DNA Drive Mode Selector which allows the driver to choose from three different drive modes to match a variety of driving conditions.

  • Dynamic Mode is best for sporty on-road driving to give a sharp throttle response, improved handling, and performance shift-mapping.
  • Natural Mode is for everyday driving, perfectly balanced for comfort.
  • Advanced Efficiency Mode gets the most out of your engine’s fuel economy.

The Stelvio also offers standard seamless connectivity with Apple CarPlay® and Google Android Auto™ which can be controlled via the standard 6.5-inch or available 8.8-inch widescreen Information and Entertainment System that delivers a central command center in the front.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Interior

Luxury Interior

The Stelvio may focus on the driver, but the interior ensures that all passengers are enveloped in typical Italian luxury. Standard leather seating and 6-Way Power front seats with 4-Way Power Lumbar Adjust ensure front seat passengers are perfectly comfortable, while rear-seat passengers will enjoy ample leg and headroom. With a maximum cargo volume of 56.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down as well as an available aluminum cargo compartment adjustable rail system to keep your cargo abundant and secure – the Stelvio is as functional as it is luxurious. Finally, superior audio comes from the available Harman Kardon® 900-watt audio system, including 14 premium speakers and a subwoofer.
