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. It can return almost 50mpg with CO2 emissions of 138g/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 Q4 all-wheel-drive maintains traction even in the harshest conditions.
Further peace of mind comes from the five-star Euro NCAP rating which signifies that the Stelvio ranks among the safest cars ever tested.
