Review

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is one of very few cars that truly deserve the Sports Utility Vehicle billing. It has entertaining handling, enough space inside for a growing family and a sense of character that’s missing from German rivals. The latest version’s improved interior is a massive improvement over the original, too. There are better all rounders, but if you value the things the Stelvio does well, there is a strong chance you’ll absolutely love this italian SUV.

Trim: Quadrifoglio

Not just a Stelvio with a 503bhp V6. It gets 20in wheels and bi-xenons as standard, as well as special leather/alcantara sports seats, sport suspension with adaptive dampers, uprated brakes, a torque vectoring active rear differential and a fully switchable stability control system. Carbonfibre seats and carbon brakes are optional.

Engine: 2.9 V6 BiTurbo 510

Twin-turbo V6 performance version makes a heady-sounding 503bhp in this Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 rival. It revs keenly, but wants for a little mid-range torque – and a really soulful Alfa V6 soundtrack. Standard eight-speed auto ‘box works well with it on the road, but doesn’t always shift quickly enough when you’re driving with serious intent.
