One of my first solo trips long ago was to Milan. You might know it as Città Metropolitana di Milano. Here I perfected my Italian, spent time in the fashion capital and feel more in love with my roots. I guess then, it would be no surprise to you that I also very partial to Alfa Romeo vehicles, right?
As an Italian-American girl, I have stayed true to my heritage and my love of cars is as well. After reading the history of Alfa Romeo, and seeing it build out over time, I appreciate the fortitude of this brand. The truest origins of this famed brand date back to 1906 and it was located in Milan, Italy!
Alfa Romeo is iconic, produces hero products, offers the first in designs (top of the line sedans), and creates perfect performance cars, second to none! With intriguing car model names like Giulia, Spider and Stelvio SUV, one can only have their curiosity peaked. Ready to learn a bit more about an Extraordinary Italian SUV Offering Luxury And Performance?
Extraordinary Italian SUV Offering Luxury And Performance
What is better than a luxury car? An Italian luxury SUV that packs performance in as well as the ability to bring the family along! When I look at vehicles, I study them both for practicality as well as functionality.
Many of us have families, and families need seating. When you have a family, you often feel rooked of luxury options. After all, you don’t want to drive what everyone else is driving and you want exceptional features that are iconic and yet boast performance. The answer to your needs is an Alfa Romeo Stelvio.
The Stelvio offers a collection with different options starting at $48K (yes, that reasonable, yet so luxury-driven) upwards to about $80K. Stelvio, Stelvio TI, and Stelvio Quadrifoglio. Every Stelvio offers a ‘driver-focused’ cockpit. From Red Sport Leather that just screams Italian-crafted to the more subdued Black Sport Leather, craftsmanship is straightforward.
Traveling & Packing
We all know that travel seems to be a time to shop. When you shop you add more to your luggage, bags, cargo area, etc. No worries, because one of my favorite features of the Stelvio is the 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat. Go from seating to storage in seconds.
Also, the configurations are great for families, as you can fit both strollers and car seats in nicely. After all, Italians are all about family and the car resonates with the tradition!
Another Set of Eyes
If you know Italians, you might already know, they have eyes in the back of their heads and see things before they happen. The Stelvio mirrors this and is Italian in every sense of the word. The Rear backup camera kicks in the minute you touch reverse and suddenly you are one of us, you see everything! LOL!
Efficiency In Driving
Performance and luxury go hand-in-hand when you are behind the wheel of the Stelvio SUV. The 8-speed automatic transmission keeps a superior balance between efficiency and pleasure. (take a spin, test it out, and know that efficiency is behind you ever push of the pedal!– just saying…)
Because I heart knowing this I have to share a bit. The top MPH on the Stelvio is 144, hitting 0-60 happens in 5.4 seconds, not even enough time to open and close your eyes! This is all based on 280 Horsepower and 306 LB-FT of Torque. Power, pleasure, efficiency, luxury, and awesomeness in one SUV.
Want to experience the luxury of this vehicle? Head over to your local Alfa Romeo dealer and take a test drive.
