The time has come for a restyling for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio. In a few months, he will display a new style with a view to relaunching his career.
New Alfa Romeo Giulia 2022 – After five years of service, and despite a faltering commercial balance sheet, the Alfa Romeo SUV will benefit froma restyling. A makeover that could rhyme with rechargeable hybridization, in order to catch up with the German competition.
As a reminder, since the beginning of the year, the Italian firm belongs to the Stellantis group, resulting from the merger between the Fiat-Chrysler and PSA groups. On this occasion, the former director of Peugeot, Jean-Philippe Imparato, took the reins of Alfa Romeo, already blowing hot and cold after just a few weeks, within the Biscione teams. Disappointed with the technical characteristics of the new Alfa Romeo Tonale, initially scheduled for this year, the French leader decided to postpone the launch of the future competitor of the Audi Q3 and BMW X1 until next year.
The bare minimum in terms of style
Finally, the facelift of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio will precede the release of its little brother by a few months. This large SUV, competitor of the Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC modernized its bow, without touching its hood or wings. Around’a redesigned grille, it will stretch its air intakes towards original optics, thinner than before, and whose light signature will be inspired by the Tonale concept car, seen at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018. Changes which will be accompanied by a front bumper overhaul. If rims with a new design are also expected, the stern will benefit at most new light patterns, without revolutionizing the genre.
Hybridization in sight
By slipping behind the wheel, one can fear that the cockpit facelift will come down to grief, since he had already taken advantage ofan update, early 2020. The Italian then had revised upwards the quality of certain materials and updated its infotainment system. Under the hood, it is rumored that plug-in hybridization will strengthen the range of gasoline and diesel engines. But it is still too early to put forward specific characteristics.
Price Alfa Romeo Stelvio restyled
Probably unveiled before the end of 2021, the new restyled Alfa Romeo Stelvio will begin its commercial career in early 2022, no doubt. A blow of the scalpel which will logically lead to a surge in prices, with a base rate estimated at around € 50,000.
