Stelvio, the first Alfa Romeo SUV, gains the coveted Euro NCAP 5-star rating and tops its category with a score of 97% for the protection of adult occupants.
These results were achieved thanks to two fundamental features: the efficiency of an ultra-light body that is both rigid and tough and the adoption of a wide array of innovative safety devices. Noteworthy, among these, is the Autonomous Emergency Braking system (AEB), which comes as standard on every version.
The cockpit of Stelvio displayed outstanding stability in the head-on crash test, while all critical body areas and limbs were also protected for the front passenger in the rigid barrier test. Tests on the front seats and head restraints provided excellent protection against whiplash injuries in the event of shunting from the rear.
These results highlight the particular attention the Brand pays to safety, through a major investment in innovation when creating the platform on which Giulia and Stelvio are based: this architecture has been developed to provide all Alfa Romeo cars with superlative handling, control and safety.
