CARS.COM — The Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan gets a somewhat more practical, even brawnier hatchback sibling for 2018 with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV, making its debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. But the Alfa Romeo SUV, named for the twisting Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps, gives up little in sex appeal and performance to the sedan. It shares most of the sedan’s design elements, a similarly luxurious interior and both of its engines.
Base and Ti Stelvio models get the 280-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The Quadrifoglio performance model, easy to spot with its four-leaf-clover badge like the Quadrifoglio sedan, gets a Ferrari-derived 505-hp, twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 that Alfa says will be good for zero-to-60 mph in a blur of just 3.9 seconds, versus 3.8 seconds for the sedan. All-wheel drive is standard on all Stelvios.
