The new Alfa Romeo Stelvio will cost from £33,990, the company has confirmed. It’s Alfa’s first SUV and will reach showrooms in September this year.

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.
The most basic trim is simply called Stelvio, and it comes with alloy wheels and LED rear lights, as well as dual-zone climate control, an 8.8-inch display for the infotainment system (which includes DAB and Bluetooth connectivity), and an eight-speaker audio system.

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.
Over and above that is the special-edition Milano Edizione model, which is available only at launch, costing from £43,990. It’s based on the Speciale, but adds even larger alloys wheels, a 10-speaker stereo, keyless entry and sports seats, as well as a rear-view camera, tinted side windows and heated, electrically adjustable front seats.

At these prices, the Stelvio range will start at a lower point than rival cars, such as the Audi Q5 and BMW X3.
