Is there anything interesting about its design?
It is undeniably an Alfa Romeo, with the brand’s family face including the now iconic inverted triangle grille finish and slimline headlights plus a strong but curvaceous body blending to help this SUV stand out from the crowd.
At the rear there is a simple yet stylish tailgate area, and below that sits a sporty looking garnish with integrated chrome exhaust tip surrounds. Under the rounded wheel-arches are 20-inch rims with Michelin Latitude Sport 3 tyres. There are slimline details, including very compact arch extensions and almost imperceptible roof rails (for attaching roof racks, if you so choose).
I don’t think I really need to say much more. It’s a bit of a looker - and there are plenty of colours to choose from, including the amazing(ly expensive) Competizione Red seen here, as well as another red, 2x white, 2x blue, 3x grey, black, green, brown and titanium (greenish brown).
With dimensions of 4687mm long (on a 2818mm wheelbase), 1903mm wide and 1648mm tall, the Stelvio is shorter and squatter than a BMW X3, and it has about the same ground clearance - 207mm, which is easily enough to hop a kerb, but probably not quite enough for you to consider taking it too far into bush-bashing territory - not that you’d want to.
There are a few finish options to choose from inside the cabin, too: black on black is standard, but you can get red leather or chocolate leather. Ours was basic inside - see the interior images and make up your own mind.
