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 of eleven brands. The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio succeeded in comparison with strong rival vehicles winning the day by virtue of its handling properties and dynamic driving.

Characterized by its symbol Quadrifoglio – four-leaf clover in English – 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. The Stelvio can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds.

The Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio comes with state-of-the-art technologies including the innovative Q4 all-wheel drive system, AlfaT Active Torque Vectoring, AlfaT Active Suspension and Chassis Domain Control (CDC) system. This technology, which aims to achieve optimum driving performance, creates 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.
