The features that improve performance in the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and Giulia


Alfa Romeo is known for a lot of things. It is known for the luxury of its vehicles, their unique design, and their authentic Italian driving experience. There's nothing like driving an Alfa Romeo vehicle, regardless of which model and which engine. From the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio to the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia to the special Alfa Romeo 4C, Alfa gives its owners the very best combination of performance and driving enjoyment.

There are a lot of technologies that come into play to make this happen. Of course, it starts under the hood where Alfa Romeo vehicles offer more performance out of the gate than any other vehicle in their respective segments. Both the 2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio and 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia come standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that delivers 280 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque.

They are also offered in the powerful Quadrifoglio trim where a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 offers 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Regardless of whether you are in the Alfa Romeo Stelvio or the Alfa Romeo Giulia, you will reach 100 km/h in under 4.0 seconds. That said, power without control is nothing, and there are numerous features that ensure that you maintain perfect control and stability in any and every situation. Let's take a closer look.

Q4 All-Wheel Drive

Alfa Romeo vehicles are built to be rear-wheel drive vehicles first and foremost. That means that when conditions are clear and the road is nice, you enjoy the benefits of a car that is powered by the rear wheels. That means better handling and more enjoyment. That said, when conditions dictate that more grip is needed, the Q4 AWD system can send up to 50% of the available engine power to the front wheels, meaning that you get the stability of a perfect power distribution if needed. The Q4 system can either react to sudden changes in grip, or predict them depending on how you are driving.

Advanced Suspension

The Alfa Link suspension system is designed to ensure safety, comfort, and stability in all types of driving. The suspension is located at the rear of both the Giulia and Stelvio while the front gets a double wishbone suspension that enables quick direction changes and an almost immediate link between the driver and the Alfa Romeo.

DNA Drive Modes

The DNA drive mode selector allows you to switch from Dynamic to Natural to Advanced Efficiency. The Dynamic mode puts the emphasis on performance, the Advanced Efficiency mode on fuel efficiency, and Natural provides perfect balance.
