Buying an SUV doesn’t mean you have to compromise on luxury, and that is evident with the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV that will be arriving in the UK later this year. It’s sleek and stylish design, coupled with sharp handling will make it a firm favourite among those looking for the perfect luxury SUV. The new model was first spotted at the 2016 LA Motor Show, here is what we know so far!
Interior, Technology & Safety Features
The standard trim model comes with an exciting range of tech and safety features. You’ll find an 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Safety features include forward collision warning, rear parking sensors and autonomous emergency braking. There’s plenty of space in the car with a 525-litre capacity boot, large door pockets and even storage under the central armrest. There is also an electric tailgate which makes loading the boot that little bit easier! The standard model also comes with DAB radio with Bluetooth, AUX and USB ports, perfect for those that need their gadgets to stay charged up on the go.
The higher trim model comes with an 8-inch infotainment system with integrated sat nav. If you want that little bit of added luxury then there is a pack you can purchase that features full leather seats and real wood inserts. After something sporty? Then add sports seats with the Sports Pack!
The UK specifications will allow buyers to choose from two petrol engines and one diesel model. The petrol models include a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo, which can achieve an impressive 276bhp. The bigger 2.9-litre V6 engine, developed by Ferrari, is available in the top of the range spec model, the Quadrifoglio. This Quadrifoglio model can achieve 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds and boasts 503bhp, impressive right?
If you aren’t looking at the petrol models then you take a look at the diesel 2.2-litre turbo engine, the same engine found in the Alfa Romeo Giulia model. It offers 207bhp and is predicted to be the most popular model when it comes into the showrooms later this year.
