New SUVs are on the horizon, one of those is the 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. Crossover SUVs are taking over the world. They are by far one of the most popular categories of vehicles. This is due to several reasons. One of those is their versatility. They can perform at a high level while still being able to act as a family car. They come with good styling and design, so you will not be disappointed if you choose to drive an SUV. But if you are looking for a more powerful SUV then the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is right up your alley.
This vehicle won’t simply drive you from point A to point B. It will do that with style and will give you a sports car-worthy performance while doing so. The fresh Stelvio Quadrifoglio is about to rock your world. It has amazing styling that is synonymous with the Alfa Romeo name tag. It is beautifully designed and has a contemporary look, while still staying true to its original idea. The powertrain is mighty and will give a worthy performance. Let’s take a closer look at what the new SUV looks like.
Alfa Rome Stelvio Quadrifoglio Interior
The brand new 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a thing of beauty, both inside and outside. The interior of the Stelvio QF has a few design problems, however, the elements includes high-quality leather and have contrast stitching. This is a vast improvement over the components used in the Stelvio regular. The QF’s large column-mounted paddle shifters, comfortable front seats, and virtually ideal driving posture keep the driver feeling close to the racetrack at all times. Additionally, it boasts a lot of attractive standard equipment including heated front seat cushions, a heated steering wheel, 14-way power configurable front seats, ambient inside lighting, and more. Although the Stelvio’s back seat is comfortable, headroom and inside cubby storage are average.
However, even with the seats folded, we were able to accommodate eight carry-on baggage behind the back row and an additional 11 bags. Every QF comes with an 8.8-inch screen that can be used in conjunction with the convenient rotary controller located on the instrument cluster. Integrated navigation and a wireless phone charger are standard, and a Wi-Fi hotspot is optional. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard. The infotainment system has clear graphics, easy-to-use menus, and a flexible design. However, some of the information and icons are difficult to read, and certain navigational instructions were sluggish. The Stelvio’s audio system has 12 speakers and comes with 900-watt power, the Harman/Kardon speaker system will appeal to audiophiles.
Extremely Sporty Appearance
The design of the mighty 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is contemporary and a thing of beauty. The hood looks like a classic Alfa Romeo, it is pointy and sporty as is tradition. It does have a huge front grille with enough air intake to cool the engine down.
The wheel rims are 20 inches and made from lightweight materials. The back part of the roof is slanted to improve aerodynamics and handling. The Stelvio QF does come with a bit of ground clearance, which is not common with sporty Alfa Romeos.
The brand new 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is doing quite well when talking about the powertrain. It doesn’t have a plethora of engines, it honestly doesn’t need it. The Alfa Romeo SUV comes with a single-engine option, and it is a powerful one at that. The powertrain in question is a 2.9 liter V6 that has a pair of turbochargers. This is not a weak engine even though the size isn’t that huge. The mighty beast under the hood produces 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission, which is not usual on sporty vehicles. It has a paddle shift as well which is a big plus and improves the safety aspect of the vehicle.
The power is distributed to all four wheels and there isn’t a rear or back-wheel drive. The tests were done and it is not slow at all. Considering this is an SUV we weren’t expecting zooming speeds. But the Stelvio Quadrifoglio was able to reach 60mph in just 3.3 seconds. Which makes it one of the fastest, if not the fastest SUV on the market. But the very impressive ride and handling is what received a lot of praise among reviews. It does have the looks and design of the Alfa Romeo, but it also drives as a sports car. This SUV is proving to be very impressive in many ways.
It has adaptive dampers that can make the ride firm and improve comfort no matter the environment. Although it is most comfortable on the tarmac, it will be able to handle harsher driving conditions. So even with those excellent dampers, the ride quality won’t be enjoyable on very bumpy terrain. The tires are very sticky and don’t slide as often, even at higher speeds. This is due to it being wide and well-balanced. The brakes are also quite impressive, it comes to a full stop while going 70mph in just 157 feet. The SUV is not lightweight so it is difficult to bring it to a full stop.
But this SUV has all the makings of a sports car. Which is not surprising since it is an Alfa Romeo. The hybrid version would have a lot of benefits for the sporty SUV. But still no news on that topic. However, we have seen many SUV models go fully electric or at least mild hybrid with a lot of success. Stelvio Quadrifoglio doesn’t have any plans right now, but we can absolutely see it happening in the future. The battery should be big enough to move a heavy SUV with power to match the 500-horsepower output.
The new 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is not too expensive to keep running. It does get 17 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway. The competition is not as good, for example, the BMW X3 M gets 15mpg in the city and 20 on the open road. As we mentioned a hybrid would bring a lot of benefits, and better fuel economy is one of those.
2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Price and Release Date
The fresh 2024 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio will reportedly hit the road later in 2023. This is just in time when most manufacturers announce their creations. There aren’t many trims for this SUV. It has a basic trim which costs around $87000 and it is well worth the money.
