The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is the new Alfa Romeo model that has set-out to become the new benchmark in the premium compact SUV segment.
Stelvio Quadrifoglio is equipped with the exclusive aluminium 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine, developed with inputs from Ferrari technologies and engineering know-how, which delivers maximum power of 510hp at 6,500rpm and generates a maximum torque of 600Nm from 2,500 to 5,000rpm. This power plant is teamed with the specifically calibrated eight-speed automatic transmission that allows gear shifts in just 150 milliseconds in Race driving mode. Moreover, to maximise the driving experience, the model is equipped as standard with one-piece aluminium paddle shifters integrated with the steering column.
It accelerates from zero to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 176mph. However, the Alfa Romeo sports SUV is also incredibly efficient in terms of emission and fuel consumption, thanks to its electronically controlled cylinder deactivation system and the “sailing” function, available in Advanced Efficiency driving mode.
The 510hp 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine is combined with the innovative Q4 all-wheel drive system. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is equipped with the exclusive Alfa Chassis Domain Control unit and it’s the only SUV in its class to provide differential Alfa Active Torque Vectoring as standard. Also standard is the innovative Alfa Active Suspension, the system that continually, actively controls the suspensions and shock absorbers.
With a kerb weight of 1,830kg, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio boasts the best weight/power ratio in its category (3.6kg/hp) and the best specific power (176hp/l). These amazing results were achieved through perfect weight distribution between the two axles and the use of ultra-lightweight materials such as carbon fibre for the driveshaft and aluminium for the engine, suspensions, brakes, doors, wheel-arches, bonnet and tailgate.
The innovative electromechanical Integrated Brake System (IBS) – exclusive to Alfa Romeo – has become the new benchmark in terms of both swift response and stopping distance, on any road surface, and weight reduction compared to a conventional braking system. High-performance carbon-ceramic discs are also available as an option.
The interior has been tailored with painstaking craftsmanship and premium materials: carbon fibre, leather and Alcantara. The centre of the dashboard is dominated by the new Alfa Connect 3D NAV 8.8-inch infotainment system. The system offers Apple CarPlay, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in car as well as being Android Auto compatible, bringing the best of Google into the car.
Safety specification includes advanced Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Monitoring (DSM), Integrated Braking System (IBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and a rear-view camera with guide lines. Alfa Chassis Domain Control, Alfa Active Torque Vectoring, Alfa Active Suspension system and Alfa DNA Pro, with Race Mode, complete the standard set-up.
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is available to order at a price starting £69,500 OTR.
