Alfa Romeo’s quest to recapture American hearts continues with the Stelvio SUV, which now has a price tag. Today Alfa Romeo announced a starting price of $41,995 for the Stelvio in base form. That price excludes a $995 destination charge.
In base format the Stelvio comes handsomely equipped with bi-Xenon headlights, a flat-bottom steering wheel, dual exhaust outlets and a 7-inch infotainment display. The base vehicle also comes standard with 18-inch wheels, but buyers can upgrade to 19’s with colored brake calipers behind them with an optional $1,800 Sport Package. The Sport Package also provides a “sport tuned” suspension.
If the base Stelvio does not offer enough, buyers can opt for the Stelvio Ti. The Ti starts at $43,995 before the $995 destination charge, but adds 19-inch wheels, genuine wood accents, 8.8-inch infotainment display and heated seats as standard fare. The Stelvio Ti also features upgraded suspension and can be fitted with Sport or Lusso packages, both of which add $2,500 to the price tag.
Both the Stelvio and Stelvio Ti are exclusively powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 280 horsepower. Alfa says the Stelvio will propel to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and feature a top speed of 144 mph. The power flows to all four wheels thanks to Alfa’s Q4 all-wheel-drive system, which is standard across the board.
From a competitive perspective, the Stelvio is slotting right in the middle of its competitive set. It is coming in cheaper than the Porsche Mecan, but a touch higher than the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC, both of which also offer slightly less standard equipment than the Alfa.
The only remaining question with the Stelvio is the price tag on the Stelivo Quadrifoglio, the 505 horsepower performance model. Alfa Romeo is saying to expect a pricing announcement for it later this year.
