Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2017 - What We Know
Author: Select Car Leasing Date: 04-01-2017
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is one of the most exciting cars arriving in the UK in 2017. Its distinct design & suggested potential power output has already got many motorists marking off the days till the vehicles arrives in the UK. The Stelvio is part of Alfa Romeo's revolutionary last few years which have already seen the brand release an exceptionally powerful M5 Rival in the form of the Alfa Romeo Giulia.
In fact the Stelvio takes many styling cues from the Giulia, which of course was also revealed in the same alluring 'Competizione' Red. Starting with the Aluminium Chassis & LED Headlamps which are directly borrowed from the Giulia model.
The Stelvio really has caught the eye since its reveal and it perhaps isnt hard to see why when you have the decidedly impressive looks that its able to boast. Early predicitons have suggested that the Stelvio will become Alfa's best-selling model by this time next year. The tailight and front design is almost identical to the Giulia & the engine underneath the bonnet is equally impressive to the design - with the 503bhp Quadrofoglio debuting. This V6 2.9-litre twin-turbo will comfortably be one of the best engines in the market doing 0-62mph just 3.9 seconds and capping out at 177mph. Its also likely the engine lineup will be balanced out as per the Giulia, as well.
This will start with a confirmed 276bhp 2.0-litre turbo engine which will later be joined most likely, by the 148bhp & 178bhp 2.2-litre's which have debuted in the Giulia.
With regards to the interior and theres once again little to fault Alfa with in this area. High quality materials such as carbon fibre & wood have been combined and used to create a cabin which should cater to most motorists need. There is an 8.8inch infotainment screen fixed among an uncluttered dash which you can operate via the centre console.
The Stelvio's direct rival will be the prestigious Porsche Macan which is the only other SUV of this style to be able to offer the same signficant power & speed. The Stelvio is highly likely to already be a success with a successful reveal which remains being talked about just weeks later.
