The design of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio convinces the readers of the car magazine "Auto, Motor und Sport". They chose the model as the winner in the category "Large off-road vehicles/SUV" in the "Autonis" voting. the style and elegance of the Stelvio, which is also one of the sportiest models in the segment, are the result of the Centro Stile Alfa Romeo.
«We are honoured to receive the prestigious Autonis award for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio from the readers of “Auto, Motor und Sport”, as the most beautiful SUV in its class. This award is a recognition of Italian design and our Alfa Romeo design language that combines great proportions, with characterful elements and beautiful, hand sculpted surfaces - commented Klaus Busse, Head of EMEA FCA Design -. Alongside the Stelvio, "Auto, Motor und Sport" has already awarded Giulia, MiTo and Giulietta models as the most beautiful cars in their respective classes. And in two years in a row, the prize for "Design Brand of the Year" went to the Alfa Romeo brand.»
Exactly 16,182 readers of the magazine "Auto, Motor und Sport" as well as users of the digital offers cast their votes for around 100 vehicle models in ten rating classes in the "Autonis" competition. The result within the category is a balance of approval and rejection for each model. Each participant had four votes per category, two for particularly successful design and two for less convincing forms. Negative judgements therefore counted just as much as positive ones. The latter clearly predominated in the case of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio - the first SUV in the brand's history secured 20.4 percent of the votes in the "Large SUV" category.
