Alfa Romeo Stelvio given a light refresh for 2023

► Alfa Stelvio updated for 2023
► Tonale-spec face applied
► Plus new tech inside, too

Alfa Romeo has lightly facelifted its Stelvio SUV for the new year, adding some new bits of technology and a slightly refined look. At the same time, Alfa carried out the same updates to its Giulia saloon, too.

It’s a softly-softly design refresh, with mainly the front end getting a couple of design tweaks. The biggest change comes from the new headlight design that’s meant to mirror the smaller Tonale, and now has matrix LED capabilities.

Inside, the analogue instruments have been replaced by a digital cluster that’s configurable, with three designs for the dials available. Alfa says that more connected services are available via an app, and that over-the-air updates are now possible to keep the system fresh. Alfa also says that the Stelvio can be had with an NFT (non-fungible token) that acts like a digital logbook – something that was initially introduced with the Tonale.

The engine range for the Stelvio will consist of a 207bhp 2.0-litre diesel and a 277bhp 2.0-litre petrol – both engines are already currently available.

As for the spec range, the Stelvio starts with Sprint, then Veloce and now the new Competizione top trim. Pictured here in its bespoke Moon Grey colour, the Competizione model features a Harman Kardon stereo, bespoke leather inside and wheels outside, as well as Alfa’s electronically controlled dampers as standard.

Alfa says the refreshed Stelvio will make its way to the UK in the first few months of 2023.
