New front-end and tech for Alfa’s Stelvio

The latest model of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio received a mild facelift, making it still one of the most attractive SUVs in its class.

What’s new?

The ‘timeless beauty’ provided by the Italian design has been made even more appealing and contemporary by styling upgrades to the front of the Stelvio to create a clear and strong family connection with the Tonale.


Standing out on the front of the Stelvio, the front grille (where the logo is positioned) and the lower grilles of the two main air ducts have been given a unique finish, which provides a contemporary reinterpretation of the famous and distinctive “Trilobo” grille. In fact, the headlights are the main new feature on the front: the “3+3” lights are new Full-LED Adaptive Matrix headlights.


The most significant update can be seen in the instrument panel with its historic “telescopic” design. It includes the new, completely digital 12.3” TFT screen, where one can access all the vehicle’s information.


The Stelvio uses Alfa’s Q4 technology all-wheel drive system that also allows the car to be driven as a rear-wheel drive ‘only’ vehicle. The same 2-litre turbopetrol-engine is used, with 206 kW and 400 Nm torque connected to an 8-speed automatic ZF gearbox.

Price and Range:

The Veloce model – available immediately – retails at R1 205,500 with the option of a sunroof for an additional R20 000. It will be joined later this year by the flagship Stelvio Quadrifoglio with its V6 powertrain.
