Alfa Romeo Stelvio Wins Best in Show

Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio was unveiled to the world just last week and has already racked up an award. The Stelvio has won the “Best in Show” at 2016 L.A. Auto Show. The award was given by Cars.com, the well-known website that helps shoppers buy and sell cars. It was the first time Cars.com has given the award.

Aaron Bragman, Cars.com Detroit Bureau Chief, is quoted saying:

“With its sexy curves and promising performance chops, the Stelvio easily took home Cars.com's Best in Show award. Alfa Romeo's new 2018 Stelvio SUV stunned at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show.”

Named after one of the greatest driving roads in the world, the Stelvio Pass in Italy, the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio is a mid-sized SUV that offers sports car like performance and driving pleasure. The sexy Stelvio is built off of the super capable Alfa Giulia chassis and features the advanced Q4 all-wheel-drive system and two class leading engines.

 The first is a 2 liter direct injected turbocharged unit with 280 horsepower and 306 lbs.-ft of torque. Zero to sixty is estimated at 5.4 seconds. The second engine offered is the Ferrari-derived Twin-Turbo V6 out of the Giulia Quadrifoglio, the world's fastest 4-door sedan. In the Stelvio, this direct-injected powerhouse produces 505 hp and 443 lb.-ft. of torque. The results are an astounding zero to sixty time estimated in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 177 mph.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is said to be the fastest SUV ever to lap the Nurburgring, with a top lap time of 7 minutes 59.00 seconds, smoking competitors like the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S (7:59.79), Cayenne Turbo (8:13.00) and Range Rover Sport SVR (8:14.00).


Besides the outstanding performance, driving pleasure and enjoyment are priorities of the new Stelvio, and the car is loaded with premium features and amenities. You can read about the details in the following links below.

Sales of the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio in Europe are slated to begin next year.
