Best True SPORT Utility Vehicle Ever!

by Let it snow from Minneapolis | November 19, 2019

Waited for the Stelvio Quadrifoglio to be released having been uninspired by the standard Stelvios I test drove. Then when the initial negative reviews came out about the many “mystery” error codes thrown off by the early Quadrifoglios I hesitated to jump in. As the negative press continued I waited until the price drops started. By May of 2019 the discounting peaked at $26K for the remaining Quadrifoglios around the country. I travelled to Chicago from Minneapolis to pick-up the vehicle of my choice in late May of 2019. I arrived with a Blue Driver so I could track error codes for myself.... Long story short, after one visit to the Alfa Romeo of Minneapolis Service Department to update the software and fix a minor pollution control issue, I just crossed the 8K mileage marl with NO additional fault codes or issues of any kind. I have concluded that the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is the best true sport utility vehicle ever! Certainly the best one I have ever owned. My past SUVs include in order of ownership a VW Touareg (V8), Porsche Cayenne S, Audi Q7 (V8), and Porsche Macan Turbo. The Cayenne S and Q7 were both owned for many years. The 2008 Audi Q7 was great (drove it 150,000 miles) , but the 2013 Porsche Cayenne has had endless significant major mechanical and electrical issues. In conclusion the Stelvio Quadrifoglio has had fewer issues than the Porsche Cayenne S, and I am considering selling my 2017 Porsche Macan Turbo because the Alfa Romeo is truly a great vehicle. Just put Pirelli snow tires on it. Let it snow!

Love Driving it, Will Wait and see on reliability

by JMEAX from Nashua, NH | November 05, 2019

This car is fantastic to drive. Quick off the mark and incredibly responsive in its handling. Its very easy to forget you are driving an SUV. Unlike many, I like the interior and it is very attractive on the outside. Fingers crossed on its reliability. Too soon to tell -- only 2 weeks in.

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Overview

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio is named for the famous, twisting Stelvio Pass in the Italian Alps and designed to be both a looker and to offer performance driving dynamics in a practical SUV package.

New for 2018
The Stelvio will compete with such SUVs as the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 and Jaguar F-Pace.

Exterior
The Stelvio is a taller and more muscular hatchback version of the rear-drive Alfa Romeo Giulia sedan with which it shares the platform and Alfa's "la meccanica delle emozioni" (the mechanics of emotion) design spirit, though the bulk of the SUV's design dilutes the sedan's sleek lines and shape. The Stelvio gets revised front and rear bumpers and reshaped lower front air intakes, but it has very similar LED-accented headlight pods, taillight design and lower rear bumper.

Base and Ti trims levels will be offered; the most aggressive design cures and aero features are reserved for the Quadrifoglio performance version. Prominent on the nose, of course, is the brand's signature triangle grille on all models.

Interior
All models get a leather interior; the Ti model gets some fancier details, including real wood trim, and offers additional interior packages in sport and luxury flavors. A rotary dial controls the 6.5-inch or 8.8-inch display screens; coming later is a 3-D graphic navigation that will recognize handwritten gestures on the top of the rotary pad. All Stelvio models will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A power liftgate is standard.

The top-level Stelvio Quadrifoglio adds leather and Alcantara 12-way power front seats, a special leather-wrapped steering wheel, leather-wrapped instrument panel with accent stitching and carbon-fiber trim. Available on the Quadrifoglio will be lightweight, carbon-fiber-shell Sparco racing seats with manual adjustment.

Under the Hood
The base and Ti models get a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that puts out 280 horsepower and 306 pounds-feet of torque. It will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

At the top end, the Quadrifoglio performance model, like the performance version of the sedan, gets a Ferrari-derived 505-hp, twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 which puts out 443 pounds-feet of torque. Alfa says it will propel the SUV to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and to a top speed of 177 mph. Transmission choices have not been specified. The engine includes cylinder deactivation to improve fuel mileage.

All-wheel drive is standard on all models, including the Quadrifoglio, and the rear-bias system can send up to 60 percent of torque to the front wheels.

An adaptive suspension is available on lower trims and standard on the Quadrifoglio, as is a torque-vectoring differential. The Stelvio has a selectable drive mode system; Quadrifoglio models get Alfa's more sophisticated DNA Pro drive mode selection system that adds a Race mode. The performance model also offers Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. Alfa says the Stelvio will boast the same 50-50 weight distribution as the sedan.

Safety
A backup camera and rear parking sensors are standard. Available are full-speed forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitor, front parking sensors and rear cross-traffic alert.
