Stelvio SUV Reviews & News

Quick Overview

 

The Stelvio is next-level sh-t as far as SUV performance goes, up there with the likes of other powerhouses including the 707-hp 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Essentially, the cargo-friendly family hauler you'd expect that doubles as a handling-focused track star. And this one shares a platform with its sibling, mid-size Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan.

The Italian automakers first-ever sport utility, both available grades of Stelvio (regular or Ti) are powered by the same 2-liter, DI-turbo four-cylinder engine. It’s mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission with AWD and makes 280-horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque. It all translates to relaxed progress with plenty of shove on tap when you need it.

Then there's the range-topper 505-hp Stelvio Quadrifoglio that recently lapped Nürburgring in a record 7 minutes 51.7 seconds, making its mark with the fastest time ever posted by a production SUV. We see this as a trend. And definitely like it.

What Others Are Saying About the Alfa Romeo SUV

With so much Giulia DNA the Stelvio was bound to be good. At last, Alfa has a car to buy with your heart and head – TopGear

Since this is a driver’s kind of car, it’s a little light on the autonomous features, but it does have a blind spot warning system and one of the best adaptive cruise controls I’ve tried. – Gary Gastelu, FoxNews

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a functional and practical mid-size SUV with all the right ingredients, just without the right execution. It wants to be sporty yet ends up falling short with a powerful yet dramaless engine, an inconsistent brake pedal, and a rough transmission. – Calvin Chan, CanadianAutoReview.ca
