ALFA ROMEO STELVIO
ALFA ROMEO STELVIO BASE MODEL DETAILED DURING EUROPEAN SALES LAUNCH
Hi there. Bob Aldons from Car Business with the story on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio from our US colleagues Autoweek.com. With the ‘old’ Alfa dealers now handing back their franchises and a new band of Alfa Romeo specialists ready to start selling the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the next all new vehicle coming down under is the Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV.
Alfa’s latest-but-not-truly-first SUV made its debut at the LA Auto Show in Quadrifoglio guise, but until now we haven’t seen the slightly less potent base model. No, it doesn’t quite have “steelie” wheels, but that base model, dubbed First Edition, is just now starting deliveries in Europe and offers our first look at the version most people will probably end up buying.
The First Edition is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine producing 280 hp and 306 lb-ft of torque, and it sends those horses and torque to all four wheels, no matter the trim. Even this base model is good for sprints from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.7 seconds.
Inside, the First Edition offers an 8.8-inch infotainment screen, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, and Alfa’s 3-D navigation system. Buyers will also find leather seats, chrome and wood surfaces, and safety systems in the form of autonomous emergency braking, a forward-collision warning system, and lane-departure warning. (Keep in mind, these specs refer to the European version of the First Edition, though the equipment listed is not expected to differ much from eventual U.S. offerings). The First Edition base model wears 20-inch wheels, and they may be what the U.S. market model will wear, as well.
U.S. sales will start during the second quarter of 2017.
The First Edition is one of three models that the U.S. will receive; aside from the base model, a more upscale Ti version will join the lineup with the same engine, with the Quadrifoglio model topping the range with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine good for 505 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. That’ll allow it to make sprints to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds — quite a difference from the base model — though this V6 will also be able to save some fuel when needed with cylinder-deactivation technology.
What’s Car Business all about?
Car Business is a multi-dimensional automotive company that aims to help you to buy your new car for a better price than you can do on your own. Based on the Redcliffe Peninsula about 15 minutes from Brisbane Airport and 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, Car Business is located in an area that allows us to pick and choose from Brisbane’s finest new cars for sale.
The ‘go to’ Brisbane car buying agents, Car Business, is so much better than a car broker – first and foremost, Car Business is an experienced Car Buyer’s Advocacy service. Our experienced staff will stand alongside you and act on your behalf to help you buy your new car at a better price than you can directly through new car dealers.
My goal with Car Business is to provide timely and informative articles on everything to do with cars – used car purchase, new car sales, car service, car finance, car insurance, aftermarket car protection products.
Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides current automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to knowledgeable car industry friends. To those of you without someone to talk to, I’m your expert – the car guy.
I’ve been in the car industry since 1978 – covering all aspects that consumers need advice on. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – The Car Professor, The Car Doctor, and recently the Car Guy, but the bottom line is that I know a lot about this industry. Whenever someone needs some advice – they call me.
In general terms my car advice is free – it’s just something I like to do and my goal is to give back to the community that has treated me so well.
Good quality, Guaranteed Used Cars
I have access to good quality cars – you can see my current stock by clicking through to http://www.carsales.cars my own website for the cars that I have in stock. I’m also able to search out that particular car that you’re finding difficult to find. I’ve got a great dealer community that I’ve dealt with for many years and these cars don’t even hit the websites. I specialize in South East Queensland but in some cases, can look after interstate customers
Other areas that I specialize in are fairly widespread.
