Alfa Romeo began in Italy in 1910, but it is now part of the Fiat Chrysler automobiles company, the same company that owns American brands Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler. After a 20-year absence, the brand returned to America in 2014 and today its small line up of vehicles is made up of the mid-size Giulia sedan, the two-seat 4C sports car, and this mid-size 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV.
All new Alfa Romeos are still built in Italy, and the five-passenger Stelvio delivers a unique combination of Italian style, luxury, technology, and performance, including an available 505-horsepower turbocharged V6 engine. Even its name speaks of the SUV’s considerable performance. Northern Italy’s Stelvio Pass is one of the great driving roads in the world, with 48 hairpin turns. First introduced in 2017, the Stelvio competes with a long list of mid-size luxury suvs from Germany, Japan, and the United States including the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q5, Lexus NX, Acura RDX, Infiniti QX50, Lincoln Nautilus, and Cadillac XT5.
