Alfa Romeo, much like other sports car manufacturers, saw an opportunity in 2016 to produce an SUV which would still look, feel and drive like an Alfa. Named after Italy’s highest mountain pass, the Stelvio is a compact, yet spacious SUV which incorporates Alfa’s signature design both inside and out, as well as offering various engine options ranging from a 2-Litre inline-four to the mighty 2.9-Litre twin-turbo V6 found in the Quadrifoglio model.
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio follows the format of its highly regarded sibling, the Giulia Quadrifoglio, utilising the same engine which produces over 500bhp, allowing the car to reach 62mph in an impressive 3.8 seconds.
On the interior, the Stelvio is laden with high-quality materials, from the leather used for the seats, to the dash and centre console trim. A widescreen, high-definition infotainment system modernises the instrument cluster, with the entire dash seemingly sculpted around the driver. Interior options include heated rear seating, wireless charging, and a large sunroof.
Overall, the Stelvio – and, in particular the Quadrifoglio – is a fantastic blend of Alfa Romeo’s sleek design and engineering, combined with the practicality and comfort to match the likes of Jaguar and Porsche SUVs. With a range of engines and performance options, there is a Stelvio for virtually any price point making it accessible to most buyers in the luxury SUV market.
