ALFA ROMEO HANDLING, FINALLY IN A SUV
– An unbeatable emotion at the wheel
Stelvio is created ready to tackle any road, following the driver’s spirit and instinct. It always ensures sporty and steady handling — a credit to its unique dynamic solutions and lightweight construction. Stelvio delivers the most direct, best-in-class steering wheel ratio, thanks to the patented AlfaÔLink suspension scheme and its ideal 50/50 weight distribution. It is built with an aluminium body side and lift gate, and it features an aluminium engine specifically designed to reduce weight. The revolutionary Q4 all-wheel drive system completes the set of the unprecedented innovations introduced by Alfa Romeo to the SUV category.
– Created to dominate every road
The first Alfa Romeo SUV is equipped with the exclusive Q4 on demand all-wheel drive system designed to offer real-time performance management. The Q4 system continuously monitors and detect the road conditions and the driving style adopted, in order to deliver ideal torque distribution between the axles. Thanks to its unique technology, this system guarantees the performance and safety of a traditional AWD, paired with the uncompromising driving pleasure of genuine RWD handling from Alfa Romeo.
Stelvio has been designed to deliver the best performance in handling, and comfort. These outstanding results have been achieved thanks to its perfect weight distribution, 50% to the rear and 50% on the front axle, its patented AlfaTMLink suspension scheme, and its best-in-class steering wheel ratio. The front double wishbone suspension actively keeps the front wheels perpendicular to the ground, reducing understeer while improving lateral grip and steering precision. The rear suspension provides high lateral grip without compromising premium comfort. Further more, the extensive use of aluminium and composite materials has been critical to reduce overall weight.
– A turning point in driving pleasure
With a simple rotation of the AlfaÔDNA, the driver can choose from three different driving modes. This system modifies the handling and the dynamic response, acting on engine parameters, braking system sensibility, gearshift ratio, plus ESC and ASR control. The result? An unprecedented SUV that offers three unique driving styles.
– First-class safety system
Each Stelvio version offers as standard Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection function, and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). On request, the first Alfa Romeo SUV can also be equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with Rear Cross Path Detection to furtherly improve active safety.
– An exclusive premiere
Integrated Brake System is an exclusive Alfa Romeo brake-by-wire solution, a world premiere engineered to deliver an immediate and precise response in all conditions. The system achieves best-in-class braking distance and avoids ABS vibrations in case of emergency braking, while its unique design enables significant weight reduction. Thanks to the braking system’s capability and readiness, Stelvio can slow from 100 km/h to zero in just 39 metres.
– Advanced human/machine interface
Stelvio is equipped with an all-new infotainment system, featuring a wide colour display of up to 8.8” with 3D Navigator, controlled by an intuitive Rotary Pad placed on the central tunnel. The system features advanced voice recognition and full compatibility with any mobile device running iOS or Android operating systems. Stelvio can also feature a cutting-edge Sound Theatre by Harman Kardon that further enhances driving pleasure, thanks to the power of up to 14 speakers, including subwoofer.
