Alfa Romeo Stelvio (2017–)

Model History

November 2016

Alfa unveiled the Stelvio SUV

Launched under the name Stelvio, it is the brand's first SUV in over a century of history. The Stelvio's proportions are a length of 468 cm, height of 165 cm and width of 216 cm.

The same sporting inspiration makes another appearance in the Stelvio SUV's clean, uncluttered, interior, which is totally driver-centric, as you can see from the grouping of all the controls on the small, direct steering wheel, designed to suit all driving styles. The driver's position has been forged around the driver, with a diagonal tunnel and slightly undulating dashboard; and it has been "tailored" like a bespoke suit, with painstaking craftsmanship and premium materials: the carbon fibre, wood and fabrics have all been chosen for their visual and tactile appeal and assembled to give a palpable sense of human artistry.

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio mounts a unique power plant in terms of both technology and performance: a 510PS 2.9-litre V6 BiTurbo petrol with 8-speed automatic transmission.

The 8-speed ZF automatic transmission is specifically calibrated to make gear changes in just 150 milliseconds in Race mode. The transmission also features a lock-up clutch to give the driver a powerful feeling of in-gear acceleration once the gear is engaged.

Alfa Romeo has confirmed that the other engines in the Stelvio range will include the 2.0-litre Turbo petrol with 8-speed automatic transmission. This is an all-aluminium 4-cylinder unit that puts out 280PS at 5250 rpm and maximum torque of 400Nm at 2,250rpm.

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is also equipped with the new Alfa DNA Pro selector, which modifies the car's dynamic response according to which mode the driver selects: Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficiency (energy-saving mode) and Race (ideal for maximum performance).

Combined with Q4 all-wheel drive for the first time, Alfa Romeo's Torque Vectoring technology optimises the Stelvio Quadrifoglio's drive distribution and accentuates its sporting character. The two clutches in the rear differential make it possible to control torque delivery to each wheel separately. So power is transferred to the ground more effectively, even when you drive the car to its dynamic limits. This makes the Stelvio safe and fun to drive at all times, without recourse to intrusive inputs from the stability control system.

November 2017

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio revealed

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is equipped with the exclusive aluminium 2.9-litre V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine, developed with inputs and engineering know-how from Ferrari technologies.

It delivers maximum power of 510PS at 6,500rpm and generates a maximum torque of 600Nm from 2,500 to 5000rpm and is teamed with the specifically calibrated eight-speed automatic transmission, that shifts gear in just 150milliseconds in Race mode. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio can accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds, and on to a best-in-class top speed of 176mph.

For the first time, the 510hp 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine is combined with the innovative Q4 all-wheel drive system, which offers a potent combination of unbeatable performance, traction, driving pleasure and safety in all situations. In normal conditions, the Q4 system transfers 100 percent of the torque to the rear axle. As the wheels approach their grip limit, the system transmits up to 50 percent of the torque to the front axle in real time, by means of a transfer case.

Alfa Active Suspension controls the suspensions and shock absorbers continuously to reduce movement of the body of the car in all driving conditions. It constantly interacts with the CDC and Alfa DNA Pro and calibrates its actions to suit the driving mode selected, delivering unrivalled comfort and handling. Priced from £69,500 OTR.

November 2019

Alfa Romeo Stelvio updated for 2020

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been updated with an improved interior offering more upmarket materials, an improved infotainment system and added safety systems.

The 8.8-inch central infotainment display is now a touchscreen, featuring widgets that can be dragged and dropped to create a fully customisable homepage. There's also a new 7-inch TFT screen in the instrument cluster which is standard across the range.

A new central console provides more accessible storage compartments, as well as the new wireless charger function. The new gear stick is now leather clad while the rotary knob that controls the infotainment system has been updated. The leather steering wheel has also been restyled to accommodate the functions and sensors for the autonomous driving systems.

The new MY2020 Stelvio marks the debut of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that enable the vehicles to deliver the highest level of autonomous driving currently legal. Level 2 autonomy is achieved when the driver can leave the car to control the accelerator, brake and steering in specific conditions, via electronic systems that require continual monitoring by the driver, but support them to offer greater comfort on long journeys. In all cases, the driver must be constantly vigilant and always keep his hands on the steering wheel.

The main enabling technologies present on the MY2020 include:

  • Lane keeping assist: detects if the vehicle is drifting out of its lane without activation of the indicator and alerts the driver visually and by touch. It actively intervenes to return the vehicle to its lane.
  • Active blind spot: monitors the rear blind spots to flag up any approaching vehicles and corrects the steering to avoid a collision if necessary.
  • Active cruise control: automatically regulates the vehicle's speed to keep it a safe distance from the vehicles ahead. In cooperation with the road sign recognition system, it allows the speed to be automatically regulated as the speed limits change. The system uses the on-board camera to recognises the road signs and shows them on the display, alerting the driver to the current speed limit. It then advises the driver to adjust the speed to that read by the system, and if the driver agrees, the cruise control will be automatically set to the new speed limits.
  • Traffic jam assistant and highway assist: In addition to the Active Cruise Control, these systems also supervise lateral steering. Traffic Jam Assistant keeps the car in the middle of the lane in heavy traffic and Highway Assist regulates the speed on the basis of the current motorway speed limits.
  • Driver attention assist: monitors the driver for drowsiness and alerts them if necessary.

The new Stelvio range has been updated to include rear parking camera, bi-xenon headlights and electrically folding wing mirrors as standard, across the entire range as well as the new infotainment system with 8.8-inch touch-screen and embedded connectivity. From launch, Active Cruise Control, Traffic sign recognition with intelligent speed advisor and Traffic Jam & highway assist, as well as Autonomous Emergency Brake, Lane Departure Warning, Cruise Control and rear parking sensors.

The Stelvio Super is available with a choice of two engines, a 200PS 2.0-litre petrol engine with all-wheel drive or a 190PS 2.2-litre turbodiesel engine with rear-wheel drive, both combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission. As well as the updated infotainment system and interior upgrades, the Super comes with leather and cloth upholstery, 18-inch dual multi-spoke alloy wheels and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and a second USB port at the rear. Super badging and silver exterior details complete the look of the entry level model.

The Stelvio Sprint trim is characterised by the Sprint badging on the front wing, gloss black exterior badges, the "V" of the grille, tailpipes and skid plate, as well as 19-inch dark five hole sport alloy wheels. Building on the Super, its standard set-up is complete with heated and electrically adjustable full leather seats, heated steering wheel and black brake calipers. It is available with a choice of 190hp 2.2-litre diesel engine or a 200hp 2.0-litre petrol engine, both with a 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

The Stelvio Lusso Ti trim combines comfort and luxury by adding black gloss body trim with silver exterior details, Ti badging and 19-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. A luxury leather interior with stitched leather dashboard and upper door panels, wooden dash inserts, convenience pack with keyless entry and illuminated door handles, wireless charging pad and laminated glass offering additional soundproofing complete the package. The Lusso Ti is available with a choice of 190PS 2.2-litre diesel engine or 200PS 2.0-litre petrol engine.

The Stelvio Veloce version tops the range with a choice of 280PS 2.0-litre petrol engine or 210PS 2.2-litre diesel engine, with all-wheel drive and 8-speed automatic transmission. New 20-inch alloy wheels, gloss black exterior styling, along with the Veloce badge and body coloured exterior trim set it apart from the rest of the range. Sports leather seats, Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) and aluminium shift paddles complete standard specification.

The new Alfa Romeo Stelvio MY2020 is equipped with Alfa Connected Services as standard, to deliver advanced on-board connectivity and a set of services to boost safety and comfort. The full suite of Alfa Connected Services will be expanded to include the following functions in 2020.

The My Assistant function offers an SOS call that enables the occupant to send a request for assistance to a call centre, with the vehicle's position and identification code, by pressing the SOS button or via the mobile app. In the event of an accident, the call goes out automatically. In case of a vehicle breakdown, a call can be sent to the roadside assistance service with the vehicle's coordinates by pressing the Assist button. The My Assistant package also includes a service report, which keeps customers updated on their Alfa Romeo's health via monthly email reports.

My Remote enables remote control of several vehicle functions. Drivers can set speed and area limits as well as check the location of the vehicle and they will receive alerts, via a smartphone or smartwatch, Amazon Alexa or Google Home voice assistance systems, if the set parameters are not complied with.

My Navigation comprises applications for remote search for destination and Points of Interest (POI) and real-time traffic, weather and speed camera alerts. The package also includes the Send & Go service, enabling the driver to send the destination to their navigation straight from their smartphone or the web portal.

Other services to join the suite include My Car, which enables owners to keep their car's health and parameters under constant control, My Wi-Fi, which allows an Internet connection to be shared between up to eight on-board devices, My Theft Assistance, which alerts the owner of any attempt to steal the car, and My Fleet Manager, intended for fleet management.

The new Alfa Romeo Stelvio will be available to order from January 2020, with first cars arriving in the UK during January. Full UK pricing and specification will be announced in due course.

January 2020

TomTom announced that its easy-to-use connected navigation has been chosen to feature in the new Alfa Romeo GIULIA MY20 compact saloon and the Alfa Romeo STELVIO MY20 SUV as part of a global deal, that includes China and Japan.

GIULIA and STELVIO drivers will enjoy turn-by-turn navigation, automatic zooming and advanced lane guidance – all enhancing the user experience. In addition, TomTom will provide advanced driver assistance attributes as part of the map content to support GIULIA and STELVIO applications.

The company’s navigation software and maps are complemented by connected services such as TomTom Traffic, Speedcams, Online Search and Routing, Weather, Off Street Parking and Fuel Prices. The system is controlled from an 8.8” widget-driven touchscreen which is fully customizable by the driver. TomTom’s Maps APIs will also be integrated with the vehicle manufacturer’s smartphone app, meaning that drivers can send their destination directly from their smartphone to the car.
