Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

It’s unrealistic to enter into sports SUV ownership and expect it to be a cheap experience, but nobody wants to simply throw money away, either. Thankfully, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio costs less than both the BMW X3 M Competition and Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S – the latter being its closest rival in terms of raw performance.

And unlike with the BMW and Mercedes – or indeed the Porsche Macan – there’s little need to go crazy on the options list: 20in alloy wheels, adaptive dampers, xenon headlights, leather and Alcantara seats, cruise control, sat-nav and Bluetooth are just some of the luxuries included. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are competitive versus those rivals', too, if far from low.

Overview

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is an impressive piece of kit. Not only does it offer enough comfort and practicality to be usable every day, but it also delivers a driving experience that will have you clambering out of bed on a Sunday morning just to go for a drive. Granted, it’s not quite as plush inside as rivals such as the BMW X3 M Competition and Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S, but its lower list price makes this disparity easier to accept.

  • Entertaining handling
  • Razor-sharp accelerator responses
  • Generous standard kit
  • Engine only sounds good in Race mode
  • Interior feels cheap in places
  • Rear space is a bit tight
