Alfa Romeo has unveiled the next model and engine in its new Giulia-based SUV model, with the announcement of the Stelvio First Edition.

Joining the Quadrifoglio version, which made its public debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Stelvio First Edition previews the volume models which will make up the bulk of the sales when the Stelvio hits the market this year.

The Stelvio First Edition is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine producing 280hp and 400Nm, driving all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Alfa Romeo claims a 0-62mph time of just 5.7 seconds, which is faster than the equivalent Porsche Macan.

   

The exterior is slightly toned down from the flagship Quadrifoglio model, but still boats 20-inch alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, bi-xenon headlights with automatic high beam, automatic tailgate and privacy glass.

Inside sees heated and electrically-adjustable leather seats, woodgrain trim, reversing camera and an 8.8-inch infotainment system with satnav and DAB digital radio.

In terms of safety equipment, the Stelvio First Edition boasts autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, forward collision warning and integrated braking systems, as featured on its sister Giulia model.

The Alfa Romeo Q4 all-wheel drive system sends all the torque to the rear axle under normal driving conditions, but can transfer up to 50% to the front axle as required when the rear wheels lose traction.

Great anticipation surrounds Alfa’s new mid-size SUV, which is named after the world-famous Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps – with over 75 hairpin turns along its 12-mile length, the Stelvio Pass is considered to be one of the most thrilling and daunting public roads in Europe.

UK pricing and specification has yet to be announced, and the full range of Stelvio models is expected to be on show at the Geneva motor show in early March.
