Finally, Alfa Romeo announced that they will release new SUV model probably next year. Its name will be Stelvio, but until we get confirmation we will use just SUV. So, the most recent model will debut next year and compete with the well known and very quality SUV models including Audi Q5, Lexus NX, and BMW X3. The well-known fact is when Italian automaker design and built some model, that model as a rule always looks incredibly appealing with the simply fantastic exterior design. Just look at Giulia or at Giulietta and everything is clear as day. Fortunately, the same result we can anticipate with the resulting 2017 Alfa Romeo SUV, but except exceptional exterior design, this model will hit the dealerships with the elegant interior design as well as with very good engine options.
2017 Alfa Romeo SUV – Elegance Design:
We don’t have official photos about the exterior design of the upcoming model, but considering the fact that the Italian automakers construct this model, we can just assume how attractive its appearance will be. We have some spy photos, and according to them but also according to some assumptions and rumors, we will try to describe you the exterior design of the 2017 Alfa Romeo SUV. First of all, at the front fascia, we can notice indications of Alfa Romeo’s design language in the nose and the lower part of the fascia. The headlights will be most likely powered by the next generation of the LED technology. According to pictures, the front bumper will be very massive while the aluminum wheels will be probably between 19 and 21-inch size.
The same case is with the interior design of the upcoming model. However, according to many speculations, we can expect some design features borrowed from the Giulia model. Also, like every modern car, this one will most likely contain a lot of soft touch materials, including leather, wood, aluminum and perhaps carbon fiber. Rumors also say that the infotainment display and the center stack will be similar to the Giulia’s model.
2017 Alfa Romeo SUV – Under the Hood:
At this point, Alfa Romeo has kept all the information about the engine capabilities for the newest 2017 Alfa Romeo SUV. If we judge by the front part of the vehicle where we can notice a lot of Giulia, we can assume that the drivetrain for this model will be the same as in the Giulia model. If our assumption is true, we can expect a range of gasoline and diesel engines in the offer. In the gasoline side, we can anticipate a 2.0-liter, supercharged, four-cylinder that is capable of producing 197 hp as well as a 243 pound-feet of torque. In the diesel side, we can expect 2.2-liter four-cylinder with the max output of 177 hp and 331 pound-feet of torque. As soon as we get some official information about engines and also information about the fuel economy we will update this review.
2017 Alfa Romeo SUV – Price and Expected Release Date:
The release date of the 2017 Alfa Romeo SUV will be at the beginning of 2017. This model will have a starting price of around $42.000.
