The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is the high-margin SUV the Italian firm is banking its future on – and to ensure it gets off to a good start in UK dealers, the firm is rolling it out with a headline-grabbing finance deal.
Buyers of a 210hp 2.2-litre turbodiesel Stelvio Speciale are being primed with a hefty £3,000 PCP finance deposit contribution by Alfa Romeo, on a four-year, 6.5 percent APR deal.
Alfa’s striking up-front contribution means the customer needs to find a relatively attainable £6,924 deposit to take up the offer, then pay £459 a month for 48 months.
The optional final payment is £17,681, meaning the total amount paid over the four-year term is £46,178. In other words, a finance premium of around £1,000 a year. The Alfitsi may consider this a small price to pay for what’s expected to be one of the most in-demand Alfas in recent years.
Other cheaper models are also offered with deposit contributions: the 180hp Stelvio Super, which costs £36,190, has a £1,000 contribution: the customer still needs to find £6,499 – so, almost as much as for the more powerful Speciale – but the monthly payment is a (slightly) more affordable £419 a month. Pity the interest rate rises to 7.1 percent APR.
If fuel bills aren’t so much of a concern, perhaps the keenest deal is that on the 280hp Stelvio Speciale 2.0-litre turbo. This gives a £3,000 deposit contribution, asks for a £6,499 deposit and costs £469 a month for four years, at 5.8 percent APR. The ‘PCP premium’ is thus just £2,978 in interest payments.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is on sale in UK Alfa dealers now; prices start from £33,990.
