2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Combines Speed and Safety

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the Italian take on the SUV, combining a sexy sporty look and speed of a sports car with the cargo space and safety of an SUV.

I had never driven an Alfa Romeo vehicle before and was honestly not very familiar with the brand prior to test driving the Stelvio for a week. With that being said, I could not have been more impressed or pleasantly surprised with this vehicle.

First of all, the speed and power of this car made it so fun to drive and was a little unexpected for an SUV. The Stelvio is definitely not your typical soccer mom SUV. It has a 2.0L engine with a top speed of 144mph and an eight-speed automatic transmission.


While this SUV is sexy and fast, it has tons of safety features to make it still completely appropriate as a family car if needed. The Stelvio monitors the road ahead and alerts drivers with visual and audible warnings if they are approaching obstacles or vehicles too quickly. The system can slow or stop the vehicle when a collision appears imminent. So if you are in danger of rear-ending another car, the Stelvio will stop you in your tracks. Additional standard safety features include eight airbags, backup cameras and rear park sensors.


The comfort of the interior was another impressive feature. Premium leather seats come standard with 10-Way power front seats including four-way power lumbar support. The backseats are comfortable as well and there is plenty of legroom for your passengers.


The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio starts at $41,995. You can get more information at To test drive the Stelvio, visit one of these Arizona Alfa Romeo dealerships:
