New Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV to cost from £33,990
The Italian company’s first SUV will be in its showrooms from September, and it looks like good value next to its rivals from Audi and BMW.
Buyers will initially have a choice of four trim levels – with the regular Stelvio, Super and Speciale joined by the limited-edition Milano Edizione – and two engines. Both the 210bhp 2.2-litre diesel and 280bhp 2.0-litre petrol engines come with four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox as standard, with average economy of 58.9 and 40.4mpg, respectively.
In due course, Alfa will also introduce two more engines, a 200bhp version of the petrol engine and a 180bhp version of the diesel; and, the cheapest model in the range will come with this less powerful diesel engine and rear-wheel drive.
Upgrade to Super, and you add larger alloys and front parking sensors, as well as sat-nav, a two-tone leather dashboard and leather and cloth upholstery. At the top of the range, the Speciale also brings larger alloys with red brake calipers, a chrome window surround and bi-xenon headlights, while inside it has heated front leather seats and lots of aluminium and metal trim.
At these prices, the Stelvio range will start at a lower point than rival cars, such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.
