Nürburgring-beating Alfa Romeo Stelvio Now Available in the Philippines

Fulfilling their promise to bring in the Stelvio, Petromax Enterprises, a reseller of Abarth and Alfa Romeo in the Philippines, announces the availability of the world’s fastest SUV.

The first-ever SUV from Alfa Romeo, the Stelvio is named after one of the greatest driving roads in the world, the Stelvio Pass. True to its name, in the Quadrifoglio guise, it holds the record for the fastest production SUV at the Nürburgring. The 2019 Stelvio is crafted by Alfa Romeo artisans at the Cassino plant in Italy and brings a perfect blend of engineering and emotion.

For the Philippine market, Petromax Enterprises is initially bringing in two variants: the Stelvio 2.2L Diesel (190 horsepower) and the top-of-the-line Stelvio Quadrifoglio 2.9L (510 horsepower). This will be followed by a 2.0L Turbo Petrol (200 horsepower) later on. All engines are fitted with an 8-speed automatic as standard.

The Stelvio is available on order with 13 body colors and 13 alloy wheel designs. Regardless, the lines hark back to over a century of building the world’s most evocative vehicles. The same could be said about the interior which is tailored like a bespoke designer suit. The Alfa Connect infotainment system is standard, but can be tailored with different audio setups (8, 10, or 14 speakers).

For performance, the Stelvio offers a near perfect 50/50 weight distribution and comes with the SUV segment’s most direct steering ratio. It also uses various lightweight materials commonly reserved for supercars such as carbon fiber (drive shaft) and aluminum (suspension, hood, doors, and tailgate). Furthermore, it can be equipped with Alfa Romeo’s Q4 all-wheel drive system.

Despite the Stelvio’s focus on performance and Italian luxury, safety doesn’t take a backseat. It comes with a number of sophisticated safety systems such as Integrated Brake System (IBS), the innovative electromechanical system that combines stability control with a traditional servo brake to deliver instantaneous brake response and record-breaking stopping distances; Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Brake with pedestrian detection; and Lane Departure Warning.

The 2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is now available for viewing at Petromax Enterprises’ showroom located at Unit 102, Bonaventure Plaza Connecticut corner Ortigas Avenue, San Juan, Metro Manila. For inquiries, you may contact them at 63 2 243 9769 or 63 917 326 8548 / 63 956 958 6155.
