FCA Canada: Alfa Romeo Debuts the 2018 Stelvio SUV Lineup 

Windsor, Ont.-  Expanding Alfa Romeo’s Stelvio lineup beyond the ultra-high-performance Quadrifoglio, Stelvio and Stelvio Ti models further highlight the second of a new generation of vehicles embodying Alfa Romeo’s La meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion) spirit. The full Stelvio lineup brings world-class performance, advanced technologies, seductive Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size SUV segment.

“The 2018 Stelvio lineup marks Alfa Romeo’s venture into the second fastest-growing premium segment and an important next chapter of the brand’s rich 105-year heritage as we continue to grow in North America,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Alfa Romeo. “From the new Stelvio and Stelvio Ti models, to the ultra-high-performance Quadrifoglio model, each of our Alfa Romeo SUVs deliver class-leading power and driving dynamics, standard all-wheel drive, next-level technologies and race-inspired performance, plus gorgeous design and breathtaking style that could only be from an SUV born in Italy.”

The true manifestation of Italian performance, craftsmanship and design, the all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Stelvio Ti models provide a wide-ranging list of standard features, including an all-aluminum, 2.0-litre, direct-injection turbo I-4 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, delivering a class-leading 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque, Alfa DNA drive mode selector, carbon fibre driveshaft, dual exhaust with bright tips, 18-inch aluminum wheels (available 19- and 20-inch wheels), leather seating, heated front seats, backup camera with rear park sensors, remote start, passive entry with keyless & go, Formula One-inspired flat-bottom heated steering wheel with integrated push-button start.

The intelligent Q4 all-wheel-drive (AWD) system – standard on all Stelvio models, including Quadrifoglio – delivers even more all-season traction and performance capability, thanks to the system’s ability to transfer up to 60 percent of the engine’s torque to the front axle.

In addition to the expansive list of standard features in the all-new Stelvio, Stelvio Ti adds even more luxury and convenience offerings, including standard 19-inch wheels, front park sensors, genuine wood interior accents and an 8.8-inch widescreen infotainment display with 3D navigation and SiriusXM satellite radio with one-year subscription. Available Sport and Lusso packages provide drivers with two unique offerings that further accentuate the bold characteristics of Stelvio Ti.

On Stelvio and Stelvio Ti models, the available Sport Package adds larger wheels (19-inch wheels for Stelvio and 20-inch wheels for Stelvio Ti), 12-way power high-performance leather seats including 4-way lumbar and power bolster (Ti Sport exclusive), steering column-mounted aluminum paddle shifters, sport steering wheel, gloss-black window trim surround, black roof rails, aluminum sport pedals and footrest, coloured brake calipers (red, yellow or gloss-black) and much more.
