The All-New Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV Has Redefined The SUV

Review

The Stelvio QV will be the sportiest SUV on the market when it hits dealers next year.

It has finally arrived, the all-new 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio (QV). You should be excited because this, along with the new Giulia sedan, will hopefully bring the iconic Italian automaker back from the brink. The 4C coupe and spider aren't anywhere close to being enough for survival. The one-two-punch of a sexy sedan and SUV are desperately needed. And when we say ‘sexy,’ we really do mean it because just look at them both. Officially unveiled at the LA Auto Show, the Stelvio QV is the SUV that ought to be called the Sex Utility Vehicle.

Compared to its upcoming competitors, such as the Porsche Macan and even the Jaguar F-Pace, the Stelvio QV has better presence and attitude. We like that in a vehicle. As for performance?

With its 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 under the hood producing 505 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque, we can’t imagine anyone being disappointed. Despite its rear-wheel-drive platform, the Stelvio’s eight-speed automatic sends power to all four wheels. Of course official test drives are still some time away, experiencing the Stelvio QV in the flesh was more than good enough to satisfy our urges. For now.
