The Car Expert gave their 'Test Drive Review' on the brand NEW Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, and they certainly left with a smile on their face!
In their overall summary, the firm stated 'Sharp handling, a wonderfully responsive engine and a razor-sharp gearbox combine with excellent balance to help make the Stelvio QV an exciting drive on UK roads.'
Continuing with 'If you’re after a performance SUV – or maybe fancy moving up a size from a quick saloon – then the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is easily one of the most dynamic performance SUVs on sale today.'
So, what did they think of the specifics?
'We’d argue that the Stelvio is one of the best-looking ‘regular’ SUVs on sale today – and the added QV treatment only works to enhance these excellent visuals. Flared wheel arches, huge 20-inch alloy wheels and a variety of different air inlets give the car a lot of presence out of the road, and this is before you’ve even turned the key.'
'Standard equipment levels on the Stelvio are good, as you’d expect for a range-topping model. Features such as dual-zone climate control and bi-xenon headlights come as part of the overall price, along with a full sports exhaust system and a complete sports bodykit.'
'The Stelvio QV makes use of a 2.9-litre bi-turbo V6 engine producing 510hp and 600Nm of torque. Designed and built by Ferrari, it’s the same unit as the one you’ll find in the Giulia QV saloon – though despite the increase in weight the Stelvio is no less potent. Reaching 60mph from a dead stop takes just 3.6 seconds, and flat-out you’ll be doing 176mph.'
