Perfect weight distribution
One of the primary objectives of the design of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV was to achieve maximum driving pleasure. One of the factors that contributed to this achievement was definitely the perfect weight distribution between the two axles – a distinctive feature of the Alfa Romeo construction tradition – which required special management of the weights and materials involved, achieved both by adjusting the car’s layout and by placing the heaviest units in the most central position possible.
