Alfa Romeo has a 110-year racing history that includes Formula One drivers’ championship in the first two years of F1, in 1950 and 1951. Italian’s love of motorsport continue to this day and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Sport not only celebrates that, but also the way Italians just love life.

Sporty features include 19-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers, gloss black openings and side and rear privacy glass.

The uprated Alfa Romeo Stelvio Sport is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine producing 147kW, and 330Nm of torque at just 1,750rpm.

It’s not really an off-road vehicle, but Alfa’s Q4 all-wheel-drive that assists in accelerating it from zero to 100 km/h in a pretty reasonable 7.2 seconds.

Inside the cabin, the latest Stelvio Sport has a driver-focused, redesigned centre console featuring a leather-wrapped gear lever and a wireless phone charger. Comfort is enhanced with premium Sports leather seats, heated front seats, heated leather Sport steering wheel, and aluminium pedals and dashboard inserts.

Its 8.8-inch Multi-Touch display now has interactive widgets, full-screen maps, performance management features and a touchscreen interface.

“The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is now as intuitive as it is stylish, featuring class-leading safety and convenience features,” said Tom Noble, Director, Marketing Communications for Alfa Romeo.

“Introducing an interactive new Multi-Touch display and Advanced Driver Assistance System, the Stelvio Sport stands out from the crowd, combining this updated tech with sophistication, performance and iconic Italian heritage, wrapped up into a compelling value proposition.”
