The first SUV of the brand Alfa Romeo, the Stelvio, enjoys rain interest. But some fan of the optics should be have been deterred by the existing engine line-up. Strong diesel and petrol engines up to 510 PS strong Quadrifoglio are indeed nice, but not necessarily mass-compatible. With new entry-level diesel engines, the nerve of the German SUV fans should be made now.
The fleet market is a factor not to be underestimated. The (official) CO2 value increasingly plays a role in the allocation of company cars. Here, the new base Stelvio fits perfectly into the concept. He pulls 150 Horsepower from a 2.2-liter diesel and is combined with rear-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission. Alfa Romeo officially gives 4.7 liter according to 124 grams of CO2 per kilometre. Prices start from 39.750 euro, for the higher Super-facilities 42.550 euro are called. But already the cheapest Stelvio offers 17-inch alus, rear parking sensors, a two zone climate control, a power liftgate, different driving modes and a cruise control. For comparison: the new Audi Q5 costs with 150 HP diesel 39,500 euros, but stops by hand.
If you want the combination of diesel and four-wheel drive in the Stelvio, needs access to the unit with 180 HP. Here, so far only rear-wheel drive was available, for the abbreviation Q4 at the rear at least 46,800 euro is due, because here is the Super facilities including. The value of consumption: 4,8 litres respectively 127 grams of CO2. Interesting, by the way: Both diesel, 150 or 180 HP, have a maximum torque of 450 nm at 1,750 RPM. (rh)
