Here are some new spy shots of the production version of Alfa Romeo’s upcoming SUV that Fiat-Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne has christened the Stelvio. This exciting sounding model is set to into production soon followed by official launch early next year.

 

The Stelvio is based on the Giulia’s all-new architecture designed by Alfa’s engineers. But, it will get some SUV related changes. Developed for both rear and all-wheel drive powertrains, the architecture gives Alfa the ability to fit the Stelvio with a range of four-cylinder and V6 petrol and diesel engines. There will also be a Quadrifoglio Verde version boasting the same twin-turbocharged 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine as the BMW M5-rivaling Giulia flagship. What’s more, Alfa Romeo has paid keen attention to the SUV’s on-road manners and handling to justify the Stelvio name.

Alfa plans to deliver eight cars off the same Giulia architecture, the last of which was supposed to roll out by 2018.  Now, the company has now pushed the completion date to 2020. The eight models include a large seven-seat SUV, a full-size sports luxury sedan along with Spider and Coupe versions of the Tipo 963 sports car. Replacements for the front-wheel drive Giulietta and the MiTo hatchbacks would flesh out the model line-up to eight cars.
