About the Alfa Romeo Stelvio

No other performance SUV combines Italian craftsmanship, passionate performance, and everyday versatility quite like the dynamic Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Standing above the competition, the Stelvio is powered by a standard 2.0-liter turbo engine that delivers 280 horsepower paired with a responsive 8-speed automatic transmission. For the ultimate in control across both dry and wet conditions, drivers can opt for the available Q4 All-Wheel-Drive system. Designed to balance ergonomics and comfort, the premium interior of the Stelvio helps support every action of the driver. A comprehensive collection of driver-assist technologies such as a standard Rear Back-Up Camera or an available Lane Departure Warning or Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus to help you stay one step ahead of danger. The perfect alternative to the dull, mundane luxury SUV competition — the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is for the driver who refuses to blend in with the crowd.

What’s New for 2023

The most significant update to the dynamic Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the arrival of a new range-topping trim level. Debuting in 2023, the Stelvio Estrema benefits from additional performance features like its adaptive suspension and limited-slip rear differential. Exterior appointments that separate the Estrema from the rest of the lineup include 21-inch gloss black alloy wheels, carbon fiber grille trim, and carbon fiber mirror caps. Estrema models are offered in Vulcano Black, Misano Blue, Alfa Rosso, and Alfa White exterior color choices.

What the Critics Say

During daily driving, we were particularly fond of its responsive throttle and smooth power delivery. Its raspy exhaust note sounded enthusiastic and appropriate for this application. In addition to its beautiful design, the Stelvio boasts athletic handling and a compliant ride.” — Car and Driver
The 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a premium luxury crossover/SUV with fabulous Italian flair. Both in the way it looks and the way it drives. It’s an antidote to the ubiquity of German contenders like the Audi Q5 and the staidness of Japanese rivals like the Lexus NX.” — Kelley Blue Book
