MODEL OVERVIEW: CARS

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

The first affordable SUV to combine sports car-like handling with crossover practicality is also the first SUV from Alfa Romeo.

From its Italian-styled exterior to its premium interior, the Stelvio looks as good as it drives.

Perfect 50/50 weight distribution and extensive use of aluminium mean this tall and spacious family SUV handles like a nimble performance car.

Under the bonnet is a powerful, yet efficient, 2.2-litre diesel engine which will please both company car drivers and fleet managers.

In the RWD version, the Stelvio can return more than 60mpg with CO2 emissions of 124g/km, but still accelerate to 62mph in 7.6 seconds.

Such impressive dynamics don’t come at the expense of comfort, though. Specially calibrated suspension ensures the Stelvio remains well composed on rougher surfaces and on most versions Q4 all-wheel-drive maintains traction even in the harshest conditions.

Further peace of mind comes from the five-star Euro NCAP rating which places Stelvio among the safest cars ever tested.

Each element of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta has been designed to balance power and agility for every road condition, achieving extraordinary driving pleasure.

The Alfa DNA system is the exclusive Alfa Romeo driving mode selector which adapts the vehicle’s performance to suit the driver’s style and road conditions.

Alfa Romeo Giulia


Designed from the ground up to be the embodiment of the Alfa Romeo brand, the Giulia has distinctive Italian styling, innovative powertrains, perfect weight distribution and cutting-edge technology.

To obtain an excellent power-to-weight ratio, the Giulia utilises an array of high-strength and ultra-lightweight materials including carbon fibre and aluminium.

With competitive pricing, the Giulia is fitted with the latest safety equipment including Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Emergency Brake with pedestrian protection.

Wholelife costs are extremely competitive, too, thanks not only to its efficiencies but also class-leading RVs.
