What's my Towing Capacity?
The towing capacity of an Alfa Romeo Stelvio is between 1600KG to 2,300KG. This capacity is perfect for towing anything from a small trailer to a medium-sized caravan. To receive an accurate towing capacity for your Stelvio, please refer to the VIN plate located either on the passenger door sill or underneath the vehicle's bonnet.
Which Towbar is best for my Stelvio?
Three types of towbars are available for the Alfa Romeo Stelvio: the fixed swan neck towbar, the fixed flange style towbar and a detachable swan neck towbar.
The fixed swan neck towbar is a permanent towbar; the thin design allows the towbar to sit comfortably on the chassis providing the ultimate clearance between the towbar and the rear parking sensors. The fixed swan neck towbar is compatible with all clamp-on cycle carriers, trailers, and caravans. The fixed swan neck towbar is also ALKO compatible, meaning it can be used with all ALKO stabilisers without needing an ALKO towball.
The fixed flange towbar is another permanent towbar; however, the fixed flange towbar is a lot chunkier. Due to the style of the fixed flange towbar, it can cause a disturbance with parking sensors making the sensors trigger when in reverse even if the towbar isn't connected to anything. The fixed flange towbar is compatible with all styles of cycle carriers, trailers, and caravans. However, if towing anything with an ALKO stabiliser, an ALKO towball with the need to be purchased before towing.
The Detachable swan neck is the only removable style of towbar; using a twist and lock method, the towbar neck can easily be detached from the housing, leaving the towbar practically invisible. The detachable swan neck towbar is compatible with all styles of cycle carriers, trailers and caravans. The detachable swan neck is ALKO compatible, meaning it can be used with all ALKO stabilisers without needing an ALKO towball.
Will it need a bumper cut?
When fitting any of the three towbars to the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, a non-visible bumper cut will be made to the vehicle's undertray. This cut will only be visible if looking underneath the vehicle at the undertray. This cut is on the Stelvios with a standard bumper; a larger cut may be required if the vehicle has been modified.
