After many rumors and a long wait, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a couple of months of the discovery: the new SUV of the milanese brand will have its official presentation at the next Hall of Los Angeles 2016, between the 15 and the 18 of November. Initially, it was estimated that would be present at the Paris Salon 2016, at the beginning of October, but finally Alfa Romeo has decided to delay by a few weeks of its debut.
If we bear in mind that Alfa Romeo wants the united States to become one of its main markets, this decision might not miss them so much. And the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the proper model to increase its sales, also in Europe: it is the first SUV of Alfa Romeo, a segment that is becoming more relevant.
Initially there will be a Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Verde, which will incorporate the same twin-turbo V6 of the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV. For the rest of the family model will have to wait until 2017, including four cylinder engines such as a 2.0 petrol and a 2.2 JTDm diesel.
In its range, we will find versions of propulsion, rear-or all-wheel drive, but the Stelvio will focus on a large dynamic performance on the road, and not so much out of the asphalt. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio aims high, directly to the premium segment of the SUV of medium size: its focus is on rivals like the BMW X3, Mercedes GLC and even the Porsche Macan.
Its design continues to be the great unknown, as in the spy photos of the Alfa Stelvio the test units have always worn a complete camouflage, but we should expect a front very similar to that of the Alfa Giulia.
