The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been spotted undergoing testing again in these set of photos from our spy photographers. Similar to our earlier sighting of the SUV, the Stelvio’s various design cues are pretty apparent here, compared to the heavily-clad test mule from before.

At the front, the Stelvio sports a face reminiscent of its sedan sibling, the Giulia, with two air intakes beside the Alfa grille. A rear shot of the prototype also reveal two crease lines – one parallel with the door handles and the other near the side skirts – similar to what we have seen before.

Progressing down the sides of the SUV, the rear doors appear to feature a slight kink near the back window, and the test mule seen here rides on 18-inch five twin-spoke wheels. Rear design cues include a taillight setup that is visibly larger than that on the Giulia, dual exhaust pipes, and what appears to be off-coloured trim pieces.

The Stelvio will be Alfa’s first SUV when it hits markets in 2017, and will likely be offered with a range of powertrain options include a 2.2 litre diesel, as well as a 2.0 litre petrol, with a choice of manual and automatic transmissions. The 2.9 litre twin-turbo V6 from the Giulia Quadrifoglio could make its way into the range-topping variant as well.

When it arrives, the Stelvio will compete against the Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Pace, Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
