Alfa Romeo has unveiled its first SUV: the Stelvio, offering CO2 emissions from 127g/km and fuel economy up to 58.9mpg at launch.
Available in three trim levels - Stelvio, Stelvio Super and Stelvio Tecnica – it will initially be available with a choice of a 280PS 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol or a 210PS 2.2-litre diesel engine, both combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive.
The diesel will later also be available in 180PS form.
The 210PS diesel offers CO2 emissions of 127g/km and official combined fuel economy of 58.9mpg.
Stelvio is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, 8.8-inch Alfa Connect, Alfa DNA Rotary selector, eight-speaker audio system, integrated brake system (IBS), lane departure warning (LDW), and forward collision warning (FCW) with autonomous emergency brake (AEB) and pedestrian detection. This version also includes parking sensors, cruise control, electric tailgate and dusk and rain sensors.
Stelvio Super adds 18-inch alloy wheels, techno-leather and fabric seats in a choice of three colours (black, black/brown and black/red), and three options for the dashboard and door panels (black, black/brown or black/red) and door sills with steel inserts. An additional luxury pack and sports pack are also available.
Stelvio Tecnica is expected to appeal to fleet, corporate and professional customers. Exclusively available with the diesel engine, it features the 8.8-inch Alfa Connect 3D Nav, bi-xenon headlights with AFS and electric folding mirrors.
It is expected to go on sale in the UK in late 2017, with pricing and specification will confirmed closer to its on-sale date.
