Alfa Romeo, for many years now, has been creating vehicles that are luxurious, impressive, and stylish. Each vehicle created has a distinct Alfa Romeo look, thanks to the Italian heritage. It is no surprise then to find out that during the 2018 New York International Auto Show, Popular Mechanics announced that the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio was named "Crossover of the Year". The magazine gives you these awards annually, and the time spent choosing the winner of this award is staggering and admirable. All of the editors drive every contender over the year, and then they find the one that leaves the rest in the dust. This year, the 2018 Stelvio unsurprisingly beats out its competition.

What were the reasons behind giving the Stelvio the award?

The Automatic Editor at Popular Mechanics had many amazing things to say about why the Stelvio won this award. One of those compliments comes in the form of comparing the Stelvio to the Giulia, which is another Alfa Romeo Vehicle. The Editor also points out the muscle that the Stelvio provides, which allows for it to be a fun vehicle to drive no matter what speed you are driving it at. Steering in the Stelvio is easy and smooth, with ride control that manages to not be harsh. This is a vehicle that was tuned by Alfa Romeo, and they are a company who understands how to tune a vehicle towards performance. There truly is an endless number of reasons why the Stelvio won this award, but at the base of it all, the Stelvio won because it is fun to drive, features Italian craftsmanship, and offers a look that lets you know that the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio means business.

What is the history of Alfa Romeo?
