BUY­ERS can’t get enough of pre­mium SUVS, and Alfa Romeo is the lat­est maker to join the fray. The brand fa­mous for its sports cars has en­tered this mar­ket with the Stelvio, which takes the suc­cess­ful for­mula cre­ated by the Gi­u­lia sa­loon and wraps it in a sharp SUV body.

There are two and four-wheel-drive op­tions, while a rapid Quadri­foglio ver­sion main­tains Alfa’s sport­ing tra­di­tions. We’d stick with the 2.2-litre diesel for a bet­ter mix of per­for­mance and run­ning costs. Price range: £33,990-£45,390 Our pick: 2.2 Turbo AWD Su­per (£38,490) En­gine: 2.2-litre 4cyl diesel, 210bhp Trans­mis­sion: 8-spd auto, per­ma­nent 4WD Top speed: 134mph Econ­omy: 58.9mpg CO2: 127g/km
