The Model Year 2021 of Giulia and Stelvio is being refreshed following an intuitive logic and offers the most appropriate driving trim both for customers seeking sportiness and for those who prefer exclusive comfort and elegance. Stelvio makes its debut appearance in the "Veloce Ti" trim level, a perfect combination of sporty content and style that highlights the superb performance of this SUV, now with new and more efficient engines, in line with E6d-Final regulations. The MY21 Stelvio range also boasts all-new 21-inch alloy wheels – to date only available up to 20-inch. On the one hand, these emphasize the car’s dynamic qualities, courtesy of its distinctly sporty identity; on the other, they expand the offer of Alfa Romeo’s first SUV. New wheel rims are available with a dual burnished and silver-plated finish, and with a specific design for the higher-performance Quadrifoglio version.
The acronym ‘Ti’, for Turismo Internazionale (‘International Tourism’), has always been applied to top-tier models with typically Italian elegance, while the word Veloce (‘fast’) expresses the speed of the best-performing versions.
The Veloce Ti trim level represents the model’s technical and mechanical excellence. It combines the sportiness of Stelvio Veloce with an even more captivating style. It comes with a wide range of equipment and cutting-edge technology as standard, evoking the Quadrifoglio version with which Veloce Ti shares various style elements, both inside and out.
Its specific identity is made up of both aesthetic and functional features, as seen for example in the new rear bumper with a specific skid plate, the body kit in body color and the aluminum automatic gearbox blades attached to the steering column. The Stelvio Veloce Ti has new 21-inch five-hole alloy wheels with a burnished finish, making their debut here before they become available on other trim levels. The interiors echo the Quadrifoglio versions. with sporty seats in leather and Alcantara, a black ceiling and exclusive finishing in real carbon fiber. Dark tones are also seen in the glass frames, the tinted windows, and the “Stelvio”, “Q4” and “Veloce Ti” identification badges.
The Stelvio Veloce Ti comes fitted with either a 280-hp 2.0 Turbo petrol engine or a 210-hp 2.2 diesel engine, both paired with 8-speed automatic transmission and Q4 all-wheel drive. Its 4 cylinders are built entirely of aluminum, with a carbon fiber drive shaft.
Giulia and Stelvio both include a complete set of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) features, offering the highest level of autonomous driving in a perfect balance between driving pleasure and assistance systems. This is level 2, achieved by definition when the driver gives the car control of the accelerator, brakes and steering under certain conditions. The feature uses electronic systems that require continuous monitoring by the driver, at the same time providing the support of greater comfort on long journeys. Nevertheless, the driver must continuously remain in control, always keeping their hands on the steering wheel. The main enabling technologies in the Giulia and Stelvio are:
