Alfa Romeo is celebrating the debut of the stunning 505 horsepower Stelvio Quadrifoglio Verde in Los Angeles this week, but the standard Stelvio and Stelvio Ti versions of the compact crossover have also debuted alongside the high-performance version of the SUV.
The Stelvio and Stelvio Ti are powered by the same 280 horsepower, 306 lb-ft 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine found in the Giulia. An eight-speed automatic is the sole transmission option and Alfa’s Q4 all-wheel drive system is standard.
Standard features on both the Stelvio and Stelvio Ti include a class exclusive carbon fiber driveshaft, a dual exhaust system with bright chrome tips, leather seating and a back-up camera with rear park sensors. 18-inch aluminum wheels are standard on entry-level Stelvio models, while 19- and 20-inch wheels are optional.
Stepping up to the Stelvio Ti makes 19-inch wheels standard and also adds genuine wood grain dash trim and an 8.8-inch widescreen infotainment system. Alfa says ‘Sport’ and ‘Lusso’ packages will be available on the Stelvio Ti, but did not elaborate on the equipment the respective packages add. A 900-watt, 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system is also offered.
Other safety features on Stelvio and Stelvio Ti models include full speed forward collision warning plus, adaptive cruise control with full stop, lane departure warning and rear cross path detection.
Pricing for the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Stelvio Ti has yet to be announced.
