Even without the Quadrofoglio's aggressive body kit, wheels, tyres and quad-exhaust outlets, the Stelvio First Edition is clearly intended to win buyers chasing a sporting look for their SUV.

Standard kit on the First Edition include 20-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights with LED daytime-running lights, coloured brake calipers and lashings of chrome on the outside, while the inside gets steering-mounted paddle shifters, heated front seats, wood trim, along with an 8.8-inch central infotainment system with satellite navigation and a 7.0-inch TFT driver's display between the dials.

Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine shared with the Giulia Veloce sedan, developing 206kW of power and 400Nm of torque. Drive is sent to all-four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Stelvio First Edition can sprint from 0-100km/h in 5.7 seconds, which Alfa Romeo claims is best-in-class.

In terms of driver aids, the Stelvio First Edition is equipped with integrated braking system, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, rear-view camera with dynamic guidelines, front and rear parking sensors, along with automatic headlights.
