The famous German car magazine Auto Zeitung has named the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio
The famous German car magazine Auto Zeitung has named the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio ‘SUV of the Year 2018’. The competition, which was awarded for the first time this year, was restricted to the most powerful SUV models from eleven brands. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio was up against strong rival vehicles and won the day by virtue of its handling properties and dynamic driving.
Designated by the Quadrifoglio (four-leaf clover in English) badge, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a high-performance SUV which doesn’t fit into any conventional categories, so finds itself in a league of its own. The 510 horsepower 2.9 V6 bi-turbo engine can reach a top speed of 283 km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio features state-of-the-art technologies including the innovative Q4 all-wheel drive system, Alfa™ Active Torque Vectoring, Alfa™ Active Suspension and Chassis Domain Control (CDC) system. These technologies, which aim to achieve optimum driving performance, created the platform for an extraordinary record - the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio set a new benchmark lap time at Germany’s legendary Nürburgring and is, therefore, the fastest SUV in its category.
