THE ALL-NEW ALFA ROMEO STELVIO IS HERE
The All-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a uniquely Italian take on the SUV. Like no other SUV, the Stelvio reconciles conflicting characteristics. Ride height and habitability blend harmoniously with driver appeal. Because the design comes from a sporting mindset. Beneath the Stelvio’s skin, there’s a Giulia – the state of the art in driving pleasure. So the Stelvio combines the load capacity and versatility of an SUV with the performance of the latest benchmark in sports saloons.
It rewrites the rules of the class, to become the ideal car for people who won’t settle for less.
Electronics are an integral part of every modern car and help deliver levels of performance, safety and driving pleasure that were unthinkable until a few years ago.
On top of all this, the Stelvio benefits from all-wheel drive with Q4 technology, the innovative on-demand system that combines the advantages of four-wheel drive with the driving pleasure that only rear-wheel drive can deliver.
The Q4 system includes an active transfer case and front differential designed to meet the specific technical requirements of Alfa Romeo and responsively handle high torque levels with a particularly compact, lightweight set-up. It works by constantly monitoring road conditions and driving style, and optimising torque distribution between the front and rear axles, to maximise grip and handling on every road surface. In normal conditions the Stelvio acts like a rear-drive vehicle, with the Q4 system sending 100% of the torque to the rear axle, but if the system detects rear-wheel slippage it transfers up to 50% of the torque to the front axle in real time.
The result is impeccable performance everywhere: on a hairpin bend, an unsurfaced track, a snow-covered straight or when cornering in driving rain. With the Q4 system, you really can have more stability when you need
it and maximum performance at all times.
Head safely for new horizons with the highest level of safety systems with a range of input levels to prevent risks and avoid hazards including:INTEGRATED BRAKE SYSTEM (IBS)
An electromechanical device, which combines the functions of both the braking system and the stability control system.
It offers high-precision braking inputs from the pedal, cuts out vibration when the ABS cuts in, and works with the powerful, responsive braking system to bring the Giulia from 100 km/h to standstill in just 39 metres. Available*.
A video sensor installed on the windscreen recognises the lane markings on the road surface and alerts the driver with audio and visual warnings, if the driver moves out of the lane involuntarily or fails to use turn signals. Available*.FORWARD COLLISION WARNING (FCW) with AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKE (AEB)
with pedestrian detection and active braking. This system alerts the driver to the risk of frontal collision with acoustic and visual signals, before activating the braking system as necessary.
Below 65 km/h around town, what’s more, it detects pedestrian presence in the car’s direction of travel and applies the brakes automatically if the driver can’t react in time. Available*.
Two radars mounted in the rear bumper continuously monitor the blind spots behind you on both sides of the vehicle.
In the event of a potential risk situation, the system triggers warning lights on the door mirrors, to alert you to the presence of obstacles alongside the vehicle. Available*.
This system monitors the area behind your vehicle when you’re reversing, and alerts you if another vehicle approaches at right angles at less than approximately 35 km/h. Available*.ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL
Keeps your car at a constant cruising speed and monitors its distance from the car in front at all times. If this distance falls below the safety threshold, the system slows your car down. As soon as the road ahead is clear again, the Adaptive Cruise Control automatically returns your car to the selected cruising speed. Available*.HILL DESCENT CONTROL (HDC)
This systems maintains the vehicle at a constant speed while descending by automatically operating the brakes in a differentiated manner. In this way, stability and safety are ensured even in conditions of poor grip on steep slopes. Available*.
