From a dream to reality – the all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Wouldn’t it be great if we could all own a sexy, Italian sports car? What if our lives could fit into a sexy, Italian sports car?

In just a few, short weeks, we can, in a matter of speaking.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is scheduled to arrive on showroom floors across the United States later this summer. Developed and built off the Giulia platform, the Stelvio boasts 50/50 weight distribution, lightweight carbon fiber driveshaft and a low center of gravity that, when combined with its independent suspension, provide sports-carlike handling.

All this and room to comfortably seat five.

“The all-new Stelvio, named after one of the greatest driving roads in the world—the Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps—sets a new benchmark for the segment,” said Reid Bigland, head of Alfa Romeo. “Stelvio is uniquely engineered to challenge 2-door sports cars on the track, without sacrificing any of the characteristics you would expect from a premium SUV, resulting in the perfect mix of high performance, capability and Italian design.”

Included in the list of standard features across the entire Stelvio lineup are:

  • All-wheel drive
  • Alfa DNA drive mode selector
  • 18-inch aluminum wheels
  • Leather seating backup camera with rear park sensors
  • Remote start
  • Passive entry with Keyless Go
  • Power liftgate

All of this at a starting MSRP of $41,995 (plus $995 destination charge).
