Singapore, 23 October 2018 - EuroAutomobile is pulling back the covers on the premium SUV segment with the long-awaited Alfa Romeo Stelvio Super, available exclusively from December 2018 at EuroAutomobile, the sole distributor of Alfa Romeo in Singapore since 2004.
Once again, Alfa Romeo has broken new ground by introducing its first-ever SUV. The Stelvio Super is poised to deliver a thrilling driving experience and outstanding performance with its sporty and seductive styling. The Stelvio Super’s list price is estimated at SGD$238,000 with COE after homologation. It should have a VES band of C2, with a SGD$20,000 surcharge.
For the first time in more than a century of its history, the distinctive features of the genuine “Alfa spirit” have come together in a sports utility vehicle. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio continues the tradition of aesthetics, luxury and prestige, and raises the bar in the medium-sized premium SUV segment.
Premium performance, born from a racing pedigree.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Super features an all-aluminium 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, and produces 200 horsepower and a maximum torque of 330Nm. The eight-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift technology delivers a superior balance between driving pleasure and efficiency. With a top speed of 215km/h, the Stelvio Super accelerates from 0-100 in 7.2 seconds for a thrilling experience.
Agile driving and exciting handling bred for the road.
The Stelvio Pass–from which the Alfa Romeo Stelvio earned its name–is Italy’s highest mountain pass and remains highly popular for motorsports and Grand Tours throughout the year. Picked by the British automotive show Top Gear as the “greatest driving road in the world”, the Stelvio Pass runs overs 20 kilometres with more than 75 hairpin bends, providing an exhilarating drive for those who dream of a challenge.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is thus built to excel in all driving conditions. Combining the petrol engine with the innovative Q4 All-Wheel-Drive System guarantees unbeatable performance, traction and safety. The Q4 system continuously monitors road conditions to ensure perfect 50/50 weight distribution is transferred across both the front and rear axles.
The exclusive AlfaLinkTM rear suspension designed with vertical rods enhances performance, driving pleasure and passenger comfort. By keeping the Stelvio’s tires firmly planted on the tarmac, the driver’s connection to the road is improved, and every turn is remarkably stable.
The Stelvio’s Chassis Domain Control serves as the SUV’s “mind”, and coordinates all the active systems by optimizing performance and drivability–regardless of weather conditions–to deliver the utmost driving experience. For the first time ever, Alfa Romeo is introducing a luxury-class SUV that is safe and fun to drive in almost all situations.
The Stelvio’s technology is paired with premium materials; the generous use of carbon fibre for the drive shaft and aluminium for the engine and suspension redefines Alfa Romeo’s presence in the premium SUV segment. In true Alfa Romeo tradition, the Stelvio embodies impeccable handling and peace of mind for the driver and passengers to share the pleasure of “the greatest drive”, regardless of the destination.
Innovative engineering for unbeatable safety.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio raises the bar in safety with its sophisticated safety systems. Having made its debut with the Giulia, the Integrated Brake System (IBS) is included in the Stelvio. The electromechanical system combines a traditional servo brake with stability control to deliver instantaneous braking for shorter stopping distances.
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection warns the driver of a potential front collision and activates the braking system automatically. Lane Departure Warning (LDW) prevents the vehicle from straying across the boundaries of its lane, and Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) with Rear Cross-Path Detection continuously monitors the blind spots on both sides of the Stelvio, alerting the driver in the event of potential hazards. Also included is the Active Cruise Control which automatically adjusts the speed according to traffic conditions.
A truly Italian Alfa Romeo ensemble – the striking exterior.
The Stelvio’s impressive size is designed to mesmerize and create a sense of authority. The striking exterior expresses strength and dynamism, while its intently focused lines exude a perfect blend of tradition and sophistication. Combining the three design elements of Alfa Romeo–proportion, simplicity and premium surfacing–preserves the company’s tradition of seductive styling and an air of exclusivity. The result is a handsome and aerodynamic Sports Utility Vehicle with an unmistakable Alfa Romeo presence. The Stelvio Super’s artfully chiselled surfaces and sophisticated flourishes come together to make a charismatic statement of visual poise and prestige. With 13 body colours and 13 different alloy wheels to choose from, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a masterpiece of aesthetics and engineering.
