Any sensible company starts the facelift just as the car is introduced. The interior changes don’t look massive and the front bumper just looks like the Quadrifoglio part.

Let's hope the infotainment system gets an upgrade

They've moved the park brake and opposite it looks like somewhere to put your key? There’s a slot in the cup holder area, even if you can close it when the key’s there.

A minor facelift - 3-4 years after introduction is a given.

Spyshots, from winter testing in Sweden, indicates - surprisingly - no new headlights. LED:s are now "standard" among premium cars.

I hope they will not tamper with chassis/handling - but anyway - I will keep my vehicle for many years.

Alfa's boss Tim Kuniskis at Geneva Autoshow said a new touch unit is in the works in response to customer feedback.

I don't think it has been mentioned, but the new infotainment controller could well have the touchpad (e.g. for typing postcodes) which it was supposed to have from launch (it's even mentioned in the Stelvio user manual!)

There’s a point ,when the infotainment disclaimer comes up , that it looks like you’re supposed to touch the OK icon on the screen. Otherwise I don’t miss the finger marks you get on a touchscreen.

All the early models (giulia/stelvio) actually had it (the hardware), the software to use it was never implemented though. Macgeek actually stated that on the later models the touchpad was dropped.....

Hopefully they’ll replace climate control dials and buttons current ones are far to be aligned to the competition

Maybe he means the climate and button controls in your Stelv, and my G come to that, look like those on a BMW and Audi.

I wouldn't know as I have never had cause to look inside one.

Personally though, I do find the heated seat and steering wheel buttons a bit fiddly.

They’re a revelation after my wife’s Kuga, now gone.

We had a Mk1 Kuga for five tears (all round, possibly the best car we've ever had) and I seem to remember the heated seat controls were quite small little thumb wheels but at least they were fairly high on the dash.

What I do like about the Stelv/G are the infotainment controls, I think they are easy to use and much safer than touchscreen, which I hate.

We had the mk2 for 4 years and only by the end of it did I fathom out how to operate the fog lamps. The recirc was about as intuitive as a thing you never did , even after 4 years.
About as clear as “current ones are far to be aligned to the competition”!

Those pics are of the MY2020 Stelvio due later this year. A MCA (Mid-Cycle Action) update will come later.

MY2020 climate control dials and buttons are the same, some of them have been slightly relabeled due to American customer confusion.

MCA is a bit of an Americanism?
Still, good to see some kind of cycle planning. I assume that will coincide with hybridisation?
