Etched into the mountainous, Northern Italian border, stands a rite of passage for those entering Italy by road. Forty-eight hairpin turns at 9,000 ft above sea level present a challenge only the bravest driver, equipped with the finest machine, would dare to conquer in order to reach the epicenter of automotive performance, design and style.
Inspired by the immensity and grandeur of the Stelvio Pass, the dreamers of Milan, engineers of Modena and artisans of Cassino have created the optimal vehicle for those demanding the highest level of performance and utility in equal measure.
This is Stelvio. An SUV only Italy could create.
Alfa Romeo excellence stems from an enviable record of more than 105 years of ingenious innovation and inspiration, applying lessons learned from hard-fought racing victories to a succession of perfected performance cars — many of which stand as timeless classics.
Now, leveraging its heritage while looking toward the future, Alfa Romeo has created yet another masterpiece. The Stelvio: born from the world’s greatest driving road. This is how legends are made.
Alfa Romeo brings its unique breed of Italian style, performance and craftsmanship to an SUV that meets the demands of both driving enthusiasts and everyday life.

Sporty and seductive, Stelvio takes the concept of first-rate dynamic performance to a whole new level. It features an exclusive double wishbone front suspension with a semi-virtual steering axis.
This guarantees a rapid and accurate steering feel and has the most direct steering ratio in the segment, allowing Stelvio to tackle high lateral acceleration thanks to its always-perfect footprint.

Stelvio Quadrifoglio raises the bar with its 4-mode Alfa DNA Pro Drive Mode Selector technology featuring Race Mode. Powerful control has never been more personal.
Redefining a category takes more than just brains and muscle. It requires physics, ingenuity and the perfect mix of innovation and beauty. It calls for stirring emotions with seductive styling, driver-centric details and a vigorous stance. Exploring life’s every curve and lighting the way with premium standard Bi-Xenon Headlamps.
As the final touch, the iconic triangular grille is sculpted within the front fascia to form the signature Trilobo, an Alfa Romeo design staple, applied for the first time on an SUV.
Delivering a level of comfort that intensifies the overall driving experience, Stelvio features premium details including fine Italian leather with accent stitching, and the available Alcantara® interior combinations, that reflect the pride of its origins.
Finally, as proof that form and function go hand-in-hand, the unmistakable craftsmanship that characterizes this Made-in-Italy SUV is matched by available carbon fiber Sparco® racing seats that optimize the automotive enthusiast’s driving position.
