This is how the Italian carmaker describes on its website the newly arrived Stelvio SUV to its model lineup, a genuine car with exceptional features.
To make things much easier for the eager customers who have already lined up to have the SUV at their door, the Italian carmaker has recently opened the order books for the Stelvio, where for the moment, they can choose between a limited number of features and specifications.
The order books is available for now only for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio First Edition, the model now coming with 20-inch alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon headlights, tinted rear glass, courtesy lights on the door handles, chrome-plated window frames as well as colored brake calipers.
Inside, the cabin is also tweaked with full-grain leather seats, which are also heated and electrically adjustable, adding as well aluminum shift paddles, wood trim, and standard 8.8-inch infotainment display.
In the engine department, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio First Edition comes with a 2.0-liter turbo flat-four pot, developing 280 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque, being sent to all wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. This allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a good 5.7 seconds.
