  • Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio at Auto China 2018

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio, Alfa Romeo’s high-performance premium SUV, has made its Asian debut at Auto China 2018 in Beijing (April 25 to May 4, 2018), further expanding the brand’s offering in the Chinese market.

May 2, 2018 – The Stelvio Quadrifoglio, the first-ever “Quadrifoglio” SUV, represents the very soul of Alfa Romeo and its numerous class-topping features make it the new benchmark in the premium compact SUV segment. For Chinese performance car fans, this latest arrival offers seductive Italian design, performance excellence and racing DNA.

Redefining the premium SUV segment
The Stelvio Quadrifoglio is equipped with an all-aluminum 2.9 V6 Bi-Turbo gasoline engine, inspired by Ferrari technology and engineering know-how, coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission. This powerplant delivers best-in-class 510 horsepower, powering the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 283 km/h. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio has claimed the title of world’s fastest production SUV, setting a lap time of just 7 minutes, 51.7 seconds on the famous Nürburgring circuit in Germany. The Alfa Romeo SUV is also incredibly efficient in terms of emissions and fuel consumption, thanks to its electronically-controlled cylinder deactivation system and “sailing” functionality, available in Advanced Efficiency driving mode.

Other exclusive features include:

  • patented Q4 all-wheel-drive system
  • exclusive AlfaTM Chassis Domain Control unit, which coordinates all of the vehicle’s active systems
  • class-exclusive differential AlfaTM Active Torque Vectoring
  • innovative AlfaTM Active Suspension system
  • exclusive AlfaLinkTM technology for rapid and accurate steering
  • exclusive electromechanical Integrated Braking System

The Stelvio Quadrifoglio also boasts best-in-class weight/power ratio and specific power. These outstanding results, synonymous with pure driving pleasure, are achieved through perfect 50:50 weight distribution and the use of ultra-lightweight materials such as carbon fiber for the driveshaft and aluminum for the engine, suspensions, brakes, doors, wheel-arches, hood and tailgate.

Distinctive style that guarantees performance

Stelvio Quadrifoglio Logo

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is the ultimate expression of Italian design, interpreted as only Alfa Romeo could: perfect synergy of form and function developed on a sensual, athletic body. The front end of the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a perfect mix of sensuality and proportion, that conveys power. The signature shield-shaped grille is flanked by intercooler air vents on either side. The sensual but muscular side view is adorned above the wheel arch by the famous quadrifoglio emblem (reserved for the brand’s high-performance models). The aggressive forward tilt of the vehicle is also accentuated by larger tires on the 20" rear burnished alloy wheels.

The clean and essential interior of the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is clearly designed with the driver at the center. The diagonal tunnel and slightly undulating dashboard converge on the driver’s seat, “tailored” like a bespoke suit, with painstaking craftsmanship and lavish use of carbon fiber on the console, tunnel, dashboard trim, handle insets and steering wheel rim. To further maximize the driving experience, behind the Formula One-inspired steering wheel is an aluminum column-mounted paddle shifter. Furnished in black leather and Alcantara, with colored stitching for that extra touch of refinement, the seats are also shaped to provide greater support when cornering.
