The all-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio has been named “SUV of the Year 2018” by German car magazine Auto Zeitung.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio outperformed the most powerful SUV models of 11 other brands by virtue of its driving dynamics and handling properties.
The Quadrifoglio is the performance flagship of the Stelvio range and is powered by a 510 horsepower 2.9 V6 bi-turbo engine that can accelerate to 100km/h in just 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 283km/h.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio will complete the three-strong lineup in Australia, bringing world-class performance, state-of-the-art technologies, seductive Italian flair and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium mid-size SUV segment.
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio also recently claimed the title of world’s fastest production SUV, setting a new benchmark lap time at Germany’s legendary Nürburgring: another achievement in the racing tradition of the Quadrifoglio and in over a century of Alfa Romeo history.
Brought to life by Alfa Romeo craftsmen at Cassino in Italy, the Stelvio has been on sale in Australia since March 20 and is testament to the brand’s perfect balance of engineering and emotion – creating a premium mid-size SUV for driving enthusiasts that stands out in one of the largest and fastest growing segments locally.
