The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is the world’s fastest SUV. If you take one thing away from this video it should be this: Alfa Romeo has somehow denied the laws of physics and built an SUV that’s taller and 800 lbs heavier and somehow made it feel almost exactly like the Giulia behind the wheel.
Same powerplant, same transmission, same interior. The biggest change is simply the Q4 AWD system. That is the reason this SUV gets to 60 faster than the fastest sedan in the world. More drive wheels on fat staggered Pirelli PZero rubber means more usable power because you’re getting more traction on launch.
This car isn’t perfect. It’s Italian; I’d be concerned if it were perfect. The paddles get in the way of the windshield wiper, there’s no Apple Car Play or Android Auto, the cargo capacity isn’t that much, and don’t even start with the brakes. However, none of that matters because whenever i get behind the steering wheel and press that little red button I’m left with the biggest smile.
