The 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio has been named “SUV of the Year”, by German car magazine AUTO ZEITUNG. This is the second time that the Stelvio Quadrifoglio has won the award in the past three years. The 510 horsepower (375 kW) high-performance model prevailed against eleven competitors, including the most powerful SUVs of the major German, Italian, and British brands.
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is equipped with a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V6 and provides awesome acceleration (0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds) and a top speed of 283 km/h (or 175 mph). The Stelvio’s agile handling is due to the active suspension with electronic shock absorber control (AlfaTM Active Suspension), the AlfaTM D.N.A. Pro Dynamic Driving Control system, enhanced by the “Race” performance mode, the Brembo® high-performance braking system, the AlfaTM Q4 electronically controlled four-wheel drive, the ideal weight distribution of almost 50/50 between the front and rear axles and the extremely direct steering. Sports seats upholstered in a combination of leather and Alcantara® and an eight-speed automatic transmission that allows gear changes using paddles on the steering wheel further enhance the driving pleasure.
Shortly after its original debut, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio set a lap record for production SUVs on the legendary Nordschleife of the Nürburgring. Highlights of the 2020 model year include advanced electronic driver assistance systems, which enable autonomous driving at Level 2, and a newly developed infotainment system with an 8.8-inch touchscreen display.
