ALL-NEW 2018 ALFA ROMEO STELVIO SUV WINS CARS.COM'S FIRST-EVER 'BEST IN SHOW' AWARD AT 2016 L.A. AUTO SHOW  

November 22, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio was awarded Cars.com's first-ever 'Best in Show' award in its global debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show late last week.

'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.'

Since its foundation in Milan, Italy, in 1910, Alfa Romeo continues to design and craft some of the most stunning and exclusive cars in automotive history. This pedigree and attention to detail carries on in the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. Joining an elite club of classic and contemporary Alfa Romeo models awarded 'Best in Show' around the world, the 2018 Stelvio is unmistakably Alfa Romeo.

As the second of a new generation of vehicles built on an all-new platform, the 2018 Stelvio epitomizes Alfa Romeo's La meccanica delle emozioni (the mechanics of emotion) spirit, delivering race-inspired performance, real-world driving confidence, state-of-the-art technologies, seductive Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size SUV segment.

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.

As the 'halo' model in the lineup, Giulia Quadrifoglio highlights Alfa Romeo's motorsport knowhow with a best-in-class, 505-horsepower, 2.9-liter bi-turbo V-6 engine that earns the title of the most powerful Alfa Romeo production car engine ever and the quickest with a class-leading 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds, plus it enabled a record-setting Nürburgring lap time.
