In the latest set of spy photos, the new Alfa Romeo SUV leaves some of the camouflage behind, giving us the opportunity to see some details for the first time.
Given the huge popularity of the SUV segment it is incomprehensible why Italians from Alfa Romeo postponed the launch of such a model until now.
As you know, it was named Stelvio after the famous Alpine pass, and appeared in several spy photos.
In the latest set, Stelvio gave up a part of the camouflage that covered its major lines, and gave us the chance to admire it. If some time ago we could see a completely discovered front side, now we can take a look at the rear side.
You can see the two outputs of the exhaust system, a subtle rear wing mounted above the rear window, and last but not least, the design of the taillights.
The long-awaited SUV will finally make its debut next month at the Auto Show in Los Angeles, after the Italian manufacturer reconsidered this event several times.
Stelvio is based on Giorgio platform, which it shares with the Giulia sedan, also borrowing most of the dynamic features, tailored of course to a higher ground clearance.
Moreover, the new Alfa Romeo model will have the same range of engines as the Giulia, including the powerful 2.9 liter twin-turbo engine, developed in partnership with Ferrari.
It will nevertheless have less power than the sedan and it will be found under the hood of Quadrifoglio Stelvio version.
Some say the Italians from Alfa Romeo will not stop here and prepare two other SUVs in the future.
One will be below Stelvio and the other is for known for the moment as the Tipo 962 C SUV, and it will be superior because of the potential to accommodate up to 7 passengers.
