The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has been caught by spy photographers testing on the streets of Turin, Italy.

Since the last time we saw a Stelvio prototype, the Italian automaker has shed a bit of the camouflage to reveal a sloping roofline on the upcoming SUV. The front end is still heavily concealed, but we do see the iconic Alfa Romeo triangle and headlights that look a bit like those found on the Alfa Romeo Giulia. More importantly, this is the first time spy photographers managed to get photos of the Stelvio’s interior.

Now that production has begun on the Alfa Romeo Giulia, the company is focusing on the development of its SUV that should debut late this year or early next year. The model was originally planned to be released earlier but ran into delays. FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne originally announced that Alfa Romeo would launch eight new models by 2018 and the Stelvio is just the second of those eight.

Expect the Stelvio to share its powerplants with the Giulia sedan, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if a high-performance version using the engine from the Quadrifoglio model is added to the lineup. In the U.S., the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio packs 505 horsepower, and if the Stelvio follows, it gives Alfa a competitor to the other high-performance luxury SUVs on the market like the BMW X5 M and AMG models.
