2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio: Doing Right By Giulia – And More
The Alfa Romeo Giulia is making its way out to dealers soon and the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is right behind it. The Stelvio falls into the crossover SUV segment and when it arrives it will offer the engine of the Giulia and more.
The engine is the 2 litre four cylinder turbocharged if you go for the standard version and Ti models and it offers up 280 horses along with 306 torque. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is coming in the Quadrifoglio version too and this means you can expect the V6 2.9 litre twin-turbo of the Guilia. This offers up 505 horses and 443 of torque and it will reach 60mph in only 3.9 seconds, which is just one tenth behind the Guilia.
The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio offers all-wheel drive on all trims along with 8 speed automatic transmission and there is a mechanical limited slip rear differential available too. The chassis is largely designed in aluminium, while the fenders, doors and various suspension parts are made of a lightweight material. The suspension is independent and if you go for the Quadrifoglio version, you can expect a sportier version.
The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio comes packed with technology and this includes the 7 inch display, the Stelvio Ti and Quadrifoglio versions get 8.8 inch units. At the moment we haven’t been told when to expect the Stelvio in dealers but we cannot wait.
