Following on from the trend set two years ago, the latest iteration of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio has been name ‘SUV of the Year’ by Auto Zeiting magazine – beating out competition from German, Italian and British brands
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is equipped with a V6 bi-turbo petrol engine and its 375 kW provides acceleration from a standing start to 100 km/h in 3,8 seconds and a top speed of 283 km/h.
Agile handling comes courtesy of the active suspension with electronic shock absorber control (Alfa Active Suspension), the Alfa DNA Pro Dynamic Driving Control system, enhanced by the ‘Race’ performance mode, the Brembo high-performance braking system, the Alfa Q4 electronically controlled four-wheel drive, the ideal weight distribution of almost 50/50 between front and rear axles and the extremely direct steering.
Sports seats upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara and an eight-speed automatic transmission that allows gear changes using paddles on the steering wheel further enhance the driving pleasure.
Shortly after its premiere, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio set a lap record for production SUVs on the legendary Nordschleife of the Nürburgring.
Highlights of the 2020 model year include advanced electronic driver assistance systems, which enable autonomous driving at level 2, and a newly developed infotainment system with an 8,8-inch display.
