Pricing kicks off at a luxury-level €51,250 at home in Italy and the European model will get to see no less than four engines and three different trim levels, all topped by the mighty Quadrifoglio.

For the entry-level price the buyer will be awarded to a Stelvio Super equipped with the 2.2-liter all-aluminum turbo diesel. It comes with 210 PS (207 hp) and 470 Nm (347 lb-ft) of torque from 1,750 rpm for a 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in 6.6 seconds – on its way towards a maximum speed of 215 km/h or 133 miles per hour. Getting the Stelvio with this powerplant and the Q4 all-wheel-drive system will deliver fuel economy of 5.5 l/100 km urban, 4.4 l/100 km extra-urban, and 4.8 l/100 km on the combined driving cycle. Dynamic performance is the name of the game for the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder gasoline doing 280 PS (276 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of twist.
