Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti trim level adds host of sporty styling tweaks and a retrimmed cabin.
This is the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Veloce Ti. It’s a new performance version of the Italian SUV available next year, though Australian availability is unclear.
Upgrades over the standard Alfa Romeo Stelvio Veloce include a unique rear bumper, dark- tinted exterior badging, rear privacy glass and black window surrounds. Buyers can also have a fresh set of five-spoke 21-inch alloy wheels as an optional extra.
Inside, the new Stelvio Veloce Ti features a host of tweaks inspired by the car’s flagship Quadrifoglio version, with aluminium paddle shifters, leather and Alcantara sports seats, a black headliner and rear carbon fibre trim for the dashboard and centre console.
Like the standard Veloce, the Ti is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which develops 206kW and 400Nm of torque. The unit sends drive to all four wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox and offers a 0–100km/h time of 5.7 seconds.
Along with this new model, Alfa Romeo has also updated the rest of the Stelvio’s engine range to ensure it complies with Euro 6d regulations. The firm has also added a host of connected services, including an on-board WiFi hotspot, an SOS call function and an updated navigation system which provides real-time traffic information and speed camera alerts.
There’s also a new, dedicated smartphone app, which can remotely lock and unlock the Stelvio’s doors, set speed limiters and flash the car’s headlamps. The system also works in conjunction with Amazon Alexa and Google Home assistants.
