The first-born of the crossover Alfa range Alfa Romeo Stelvio is officially presented on the catwalk in Los Angeles on November 16, 2016, and in the most “evil” version of the Quadrifoglio with a 510-horsepower V6 bi-turbo petrol. According to preliminary information, the price of a new Italian crossover Alfa Romeo Stelvio in the basic configuration with a diesel 150-horsepower engine 2.2 Turbo will be from 40,000 euros. Sales of the new crossover Alfa Romeo Stelvio will start at the end of 2016 from the American market, then in 2017 the novelty will appear in Europe, and possibly in Russia.
Just note that the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a model Alfa Romeo Giulia in a crossover garment. The cars, of course, have a common platform, motors, gearboxes and even interior decoration. That’s only Stelvio looks more solid than the four-door soptformny sedan with a beautiful name Julia, and the crossover is standardly equipped with a full drive Q4.
It is also necessary to note that the 510-strong Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is the fastest crossover in the class today.

Italian designers have awarded the new crossover brand Alfa Romeo excellent stylish and original body. Consider the novelty of the most expensive version of Stelvio Quadrifoglio (the basic versions do not look so aggressive and sporty).
The front part of the body of the model Stelvio demonstrates almost complete resemblance to the design of the front part of the body of the sedan Giulia: amazingly stylish headlights of the head light with LED bends of daytime running lights, the proprietary Alpha shield of the falshradiator grille, bumper with a huge air intake and pronounced aerodynamic plumage.
In the profile of the Italian carpenter’s body looks as original and aggressive: a fluffy hood, blown surfaces of wings and doors, huge cutouts of wheel arches, a line of roof falling down to the rear of the body flowing onto a powerful stern.
Evaluating the back of the body of the crossover, we immediately understand that we have an Italian car in front of us – the fodder with highly placed neat lights of the parking lights, the original shape of the tailgate and the bumper looks so refined.
- The external overall dimensions of the body of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2018-2019 are 4686 mm in length, 1903 mm in width (including external mirrors 2163 mm), 1650 mm in height, with a 2820 mm wheelbase.
- The crossover in the Quadrifoglio version comes standard with 21-inch forged wheels with original design and low-profile 255/40 R21 tires.
The crossover body is modern and, understandably, advanced. The hood, doors and roof of a car made of aluminum, the power frame of a body made of heavy-duty steel with a wide use of carbon parts, from which also produced cardan and part of the details of the aerodynamic body kit.
The salon of the new Italian crossover is five-seater, and the useful volume of the luggage compartment is quite impressive – 680 liters. The seats in the first and second row are enough for comfortable accommodation of the driver and four passengers.

The front part of the salon is captivated by the convenience of placing the equipment and the laconic interior design.

A wide tunnel between the sports seats of the first row with excellent lateral support rollers, on the horizontal surface of which there are three washers that provide control: multimedia system, chassis settings (Alfa DNA system with four modes Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficiency and Race) and Alfa Chassis Domain Control.
