Another storied sports car maker has acquiesced to the SUV obsession. Meet the all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio – a premium, midsized sport utility vehicle priced from a rather modest $42,990 including destination. Imported from Italy with its name derived from the legendary Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps, Alfa Romeo’s latest shares its new, lightweight rear-drive architecture with the exceptional Giulia sedan; the best sports sedan I’ve ever driven. They call it the SUV for the S-Curves; the Stelvio is crafted for driving enthusiasts, with near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, a low center of gravity and very direct steering. All-wheel drive is standard on all Stelvio models with the ability to transfer up to 60% of the engine’s torque to the front axle.
