RPM TV Ep 381: Driving the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio SUV. Plus all the Geneva Motor Show stars
Alfa Romeo has a reputation for building cars that exude a certain emotive appeal. It’s a heritage that stretches back more than a century. Since then, the brand has produced everything from Formula One cars to compact hatchbacks, with driver appeal the strongest common denominator.
The big question is whether Alfa Romeo can produce a SUV that reflects that vital mix of brio, engagement and character that has set the brand apart for decades. This week, we travel to Switzerland to find out just how good – and how Alfa – the new Stelvio SUV really is.
The Swiss lakeside city of Geneva may be better known for its exclusive watches, its discreet banks and its delicious chocolates. But once a year, the spotlight shifts to the motoring world when the Geneva International Motor Show attracts the latest, the flashiest, the fastest and the most exclusive new cars from around the globe. The 2017 show was no different.
This week’s show premieres in its usual time slot at 20h30 on SuperSport 8 on Wednesday 15 March. As last-minute changes to the broadcast schedule are frequent, please check the latest transmission schedule under ‘Motorsport’ on the SuperSport website’s ‘TV’ section, or the DStv Electronic Programme Guide.
