Why buy it
Power and elegance, the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Stelvio is a jewel of design, as the made in Italy worldwide. Bad no vulgarities, “nervous” without excesses, seems ready to tear the curves and the mountain roads. Italian style concentrated in a compact SUV, which shares many of the components with the Giulia, Alfa successful model. That determined look, muscular and with a receding rear profile make it a very special car, even to represent a status symbol. Exciting to look at, the Stelvio overflows Quadrifoglio technology was designed to facilitate the handling: the ease with which the driver controls the car to fit in curve and change trajectory.
Why don’t buy it
In the premium SUV sector, high-performance competition is very strong. There are older models, all of which is known at the level of reliability and driveability: in particular the German. The 2018 Stelvio Quadrifoglio is not the case of those who want a Sports Utility Vehicle with a less marked line, and who does not love the models a bit ‘aggressive and muscular. The belt of high side is appreciated or you hate now. As well as the bulge of the front wing, and tail in SUV-coupe style.
