February 8th, 2021 by

Motor Trend published a review with the upcoming high-performance SUV of Alfa Romeo, the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio. The review covered everything about this new offering from the Italian carmaker, including the Stelvio’s exterior design, the engine performance, and the safety features. Based on the review, it is safe to say that Motor Trend was impressed with 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, as are we here at Alfa Romeo of Anaheim Hills.

The Stelvio has an impressive body style with muscular curves and fluid lines. Its overall aesthetics will show everyone the Italian elegance that Alfa Romeo continuously incorporates into its cars. Motor Trend particularly complimented the SUV’s front fascia and the sculpted fastback-tapered tailgate, which they tagged as ‘marvelous’.

Engine Performance

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio carries an All-Aluminum 2.0-liter Direct Inject I4 Turbo 280 horsepower engine, with a top speed of 144 mph and torque of 306 lb-ft. This all-wheel drive luxury SUV fascinated Motor Trend with its 0-60 mph conversion of just 5.4 seconds, which is very outstanding considering the performance of other luxury SUVs.

Impressive Braking System
Another category where Motor Trend was truly impressed with Stelvio is the anti-lock braking system. It boasts a 13-inch four piston Brembos up front and 12.5 single piston units in the back. When tested in a wet and greasy road by a Motor Trend reviewer, the SUV went into a quick stop without any kind of kickbacks in the brake pedal. Stelvio’s impressive braking system also works well in snow or in any slippery roads.

Other Standard Features
