Yes. No way to turn it off via a switch or via infotainment system. Now, is there some form of hack to disable it? That I don't know and I would not try for my Stelvio.I did a search and came up with nothing on this topic (except the one showing the ice dancing video).
So is it true that we can't turn off the traction control in the Stelvio? For the video, I assume they pulled a fuse of some sort.
For performance driving, ESC is a detriment and if you ever take your car on a road course, you will not be pleased as the ESC will slow the car down when you most want it to put power to the road.Why do you want to disable it?
So do you know this for a fact or are you just guessing?

Also, driving on snowy or slick roads, a skilled driver will prefer not to have ESC as he / she will want the ability to steer with the throttle, something ESC does not allow.
There IS a 'secret' method to disable the Stelvio's ESC without cutting wires but it's fairly cumbersome and it affects other functions of the car. And when the car is shut off, the ESC disable is deleted so if you want to disable it again, you'd have to go through the whole process again.
It would be wonderful for Alfa to provide an update with a switch of some sort or a simple electronic command to switch off the ESC. For sporty, performance-oriented cars, the Giulia and the Stelvio really need this update.
Stelvio was available with Q4 only until next MY. So it’s guaranteed to be a Q4 AWD Model.Hello guys. I planning to get an second hand stelvio 2017, 180ph diesel and would like to have your guidance. On the rear of the car there is the logo of Q4 but the owner isn't quite aur if the car is Q4 or Q2. My question is there any simple way to distinguish both model without having to ask the resaler? Many thanks guys .
This isn't correct. In Europe, we have a 180hp version with RWD only since launch. The post doesn't state location.Stelvio was available with Q4 only until next MY. So it’s guaranteed to be a Q4 AWD Model.
