'With its sexy curves and promising performance chops, the Stelvio easily took home Cars.com's Best in Show award,' said Aaron Bragman, Cars.com Detroit Bureau Chief. 'Alfa Romeo's new 2018 Stelvio SUV stunned at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show.'

    Featured in the all-new 2018 Stelvio and Stelvio Ti models, an all-aluminum 2.0-liter direct-injection, 16-valve, turbocharged and intercooled engine, designed specifically for Alfa Romeo, delivers a best-in-class 280 horsepower, along with world-class levels of performance, efficiency and refinement.

    Arriving to the premium mid-size SUV segment is the most powerful Alfa Romeo production engine ever, with an all-aluminum 2.9-liter direct-injection bi-turbo V-6 featuring a compact 90-degree layout serving as the Stelvio Quadrifoglio's 'heart and soul.' The Stelvio Quadrifoglio delivers a best-in-class 505 horsepower and a flat torque curve with 443 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

    The intelligent Q4 all-wheel-drive system – standard on all Stelvio models, including Quadrifoglio – delivers even more all-season traction and performance capability, thanks to the system's ability to transfer up to 60 percent of the engine's torque to the front axle.

    Alfa Romeo Stelvio's architecture extensively integrates lightweight, state-of-the-art materials that enable and deliver near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, segment-leading torsional rigidity and the most direct steering available.

    In true Italian fashion, the all-new Stelvio allows owners to customize their performance SUV with up to 13 exterior colors; seven wheel choices, ranging from 18 inches to 21 inches; and an almost endless selection of interior color and trim choices.

    Crafted by Alfa Romeo artisans at the Cassino plant in Italy, the all-new 2018 Stelvio lineup is a testament to Alfa Romeo's perfect balance of engineering and emotion, creating a premium mid-size SUV for driving enthusiasts that stands out in one of the largest and fastest growing segments in the U.S.

    With the all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, where other SUVs stop at utility, Alfa Romeo took on the challenge to create the perfect mix of high performance, capability and design.
