NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.

J.D. Power rated the Stelvio Quadrifoglio at 74 out of 100, which isn't particularly great. At the time of writing, 2022 and 2023 models had no recalls, but the 2021 model was recalled three times for a fuel line sensor housing that may leak, a rotor and shaft that may separate leading to a loss of ABS, and a side curtain airbag that may not correctly deploy. The manufacturer did not specifically say that the Quadrifoglio derivative was affected by these issues, but it's likely.
Alfa sells the Stelvio with a standard four-year/50,000-mile limited and powertrain warranty, roadside assistance for four years regardless of mileage, and corrosion perforation coverage for 12 years.
