Introduction

What Car? says...

Can a sports SUV, such as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio that you see here, ever be considered a true driver's car? You know, one of those machines that has the magic ability to lure you out of bed on Sunday morning. A car that you don’t simply use to get from A to B.

Well, plenty of SUVs have the performance to make you smile. But they’re generally too heavy, too tall and – frankly – too blunt to be properly sporty.

But what if you were to base your sports SUV on a well-sorted performance saloon? That’s the route Alfa Romeo’s engineers took when developing the Stelvio Quadrifoglio. And the results look rather mouth-watering.

Based on the scintillating Giulia Quadrifoglio saloon, Alfa’s hot SUV benefits from using the same chassis and the same fire-breathing 503bhp 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged petrol V6 engine, while its four-wheel drive system is borrowed from sister company Maserati.

Add in a 0-62mph time of just 3.8sec and an eye-watering 176mph top speed, and the Stelvio Quadrifoglio certainly sounds promising. But of course, none of this tells you how a car performs in the real world. So, that’s what we’ll be investigating in this review.

We’ll be seeing how it compares with rivals such as the Audi SQ5, Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 and Porsche Macan Turbo. And if at the end you decide it is the car for you, make sure you check out our New Car Buying service, because you could potentially save thousands on a new Stelvio Quadrifoglio, without having to go through the hassle of haggling.
