  • All Stelvio models feature a perfect 50/50 weight distribution, class-leading power and performance and an eight-speed automatic transmission paired to a direct-injection 280-hp turbocharged and intercooled 2.0L engine, delivering 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds

May 18, 2018,  Auburn Hills, Mich. - The editors of Car and Driver named the Alfa Romeo Stelvio – including the record-breaking Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio – to its annual Editors’ Choice list for 2018, recognizing the best vehicles on the market.
 
Car and Driver created their Editors’ Choice awards to honor the many excellent vehicles — beyond those in the 10Best halo — that they would recommend to family and friends.
 
“For Editors’ Choice, we look for exactly the same qualities that inform our 10Best selections: a vehicle’s inherent value, how well it fulfills its intended mission relative to its segment competitors, and how engaging it is from behind the wheel,” said Car and Driver. “We comb through every segment and consider all the vehicles we’ve driven, tested, and evaluated — more than 700 last year alone.”
 
The Stelvio lineup brings world-class performance, state-of-the-art technologies, seductive Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size SUV segment.
 
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 United States.
 
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio brings world-class performance, state-of-the-art technologies, seductive Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size SUV segment. With the all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, where other SUVs stop at utility, Alfa Romeo took on the challenge to create the perfect mix of high performance, capability and design. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is the fastest SUV in the world with a Nürburgring lap time of 7:51.7 and boasts a best-in-class 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds.
