One of the most powerful SUVs, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, sets a new benchmark in the premium midsize SUV segment with its combination of awe-inspiring design, performance and technology and is priced from €118,795.

Alfa’s new Stelvio Quadrifoglio is powered by an innovative 2.9-litre V6 Bi-Turbo petrol engine, combined with the innovative Q4 all-wheel drive system, promises to be a potent combination of unbeatable performance, traction, driving pleasure and safety in all situations.

In normal conditions, the Q4 system transfers 100% of the torque to the rear axle. As the wheels approach their grip limit, the system transmits up to 50% of the torque to the front axle in real time, by means of a transfer case.

What makes it extra special is the underpinnings of the exclusive Alfa Chassis Domain Control unit, which acts as the brain to coordinate all of the car’s electronic systems, to deliver the best performance and the utmost driving pleasure at all times.

The system simultaneously assigns specific tasks to the various active systems, such as the Alfa DNA Pro selector, Q4 all-wheel drive, Alfa Active Torque Vectoring system, Alfa Active Suspension system and the ESC.

The standard Torque Vectoring technology optimises the Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s drive distribution and accentuates its sporting character. The two electronically controlled clutches in the rear differential make it possible to control torque delivery to each wheel separately. This ensures the optimal transfer of power to the ground even when the car is pushed to its dynamic limits, without the need for intrusive inputs from the stability control system.
