Adding to the excitement of the New York International Auto Show, Popular Mechanics announced that the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been named “Crossover of the Year” in the magazine’s annual Automotive Excellence Awards. To choose their car awards, editors drive all of the relevant class contenders over the course of the year, then pick the vehicle that they feel transcends the competition.
“The Stelvio is the Giulia of crossovers, and that’s about the highest praise we can give it. It’s got muscle, even in four-cylinder guise, but it’s also one of those cars that’s fun to drive at any speed, because of the way it feels,” said Ezra Dyer, Automotive Editor at Popular Mechanics. “The steering is light but not numb, the ride control is taut without being harsh. It was obviously tuned by people whose priorities skew toward performance. The Stelvio feels like an Italian sport sedan, only taller. Which is exactly what it is.”
In addition to the two Nero Edizione Giulia and Stelvio vehicles on the stand, other Alfa Romeo models on display in New York City include:
  • 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio in Rosso Competizione Tri-coat
  • 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio in Misano Blue Metallic
  • 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider in Madreperla White Tri-Coat
  • 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Sport in Vesuvio Gray Metallic
  • 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Ti Lusso in Vulcano Black Metallic
