SAME ACRONYM, NEW MEANING.
PUTTING THE S BACK IN SUV
THE TRUE MEANING OF SUV
The acronym SUV is part of our everyday vocabulary. It has become such a general term that it’s hard to find its true meaning. SUV stands for sport utility vehicle, but what does SUV really mean for Alfa Romeo? Since 1910, Alfa Romeo has been focused on delivering a driving experi-ence that creates a powerful emotion and puts the driver at the center, whether it’s a track, city street or mountain pass like the one Stelvio gets its name from. The undeniable performance and emotion that come from Alfa Romeo’s first ever SUV are putting sport front and center once again.
There was a time when rugged vehicles were more necessary and SUVs were limited to those who needed extra capabilities from their cars. Thankfully, those times have changed and so has the form and function of an SUV. Today, Stelvio leads the charge with all of its state-of-the-art technology, from the exclusive Alfalink™ suspension, to precision engineering and stunning Ital-ian design. It delivers the safety, comfort and versatility that is expected from an SUV while shifting the paradigm about what sport and performance means for an SUV.
COMFORT IN THE SHAPE OF AN SUV
The uses and utilities of the modern SUV have undoubtedly changed over the years. Alfa Romeo has shaped the landscape of the SUV category with Stelvio and its spacious, yet refined de-sign, that creates an elevated sense of pleasure and comfort, in perfect harmony with its perfor-mance. The interior envelopes the driver and passengers, providing ample space and legroom for everyone on board as well as an overly spacious boot. These features along with iconic Alfa Ro-meo engineering have been combined to create a genuinely uncompromising SUV that redefines versatility, creating one of a kind emotion.
A LEVEL OF POWER NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN AN SUV
The striking lines and design of the first SUV from Alfa Romeo demonstrate the finest in Ital-ian design, but Stelvio puts the ‘sport’ back in SUV with its world-class engine. The diesel and petrol engines are both sculpted from a full aluminium monobloc that can generate up to 280hp, and up to 510hp for Quadrifoglio versions of the award-winning SUV. The ingenious design of the in-line four cylinders engine paired with its state-of-the-art mechanics, including a variable geometry turbocharger and an 8-speed automatic transmission, put our SUV in rare company as it creates unparalleled power and exceptional efficiency.
