Hot Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio SUV revised for 2020

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio performance SUV gets new infotainment and exterior colours options, but power stays at 503bhp

This is the new Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio - Alfa’s super-SUV and Porsche Macan Turbo rival has received a range of cosmetic and technology upgrades as part of an update for 2020. 

The revised model has been revealed alongside a similarly refreshed version of the BMW M3 baiting Giulia Quadrofiglio super saloon. 

Exterior changes are relatively minor and include new LED rear light clusters with a darkened lens cover, a new 21-inch alloy wheel design and a gloss black finish to some of the car’s badging. Three new exterior colours have also been added to the options list: 6C Villa d’Este Red, GT Junior Ocra, and Montreal Green. 

A new line of accessories has also been made available on the Stelvio Quadrifoglio from Mopar, offering buyers a carbon fibre front grille, mirror caps and a rear spoiler for the first time.

Inside, changes are equally minor and extend to a new leather steering wheel and gear selector, while red or green seat belts can be chosen over the standard black items. Alfa has also updated the 8.8-inch central infotainment system. It features a new interface and a performance menu that allows owners of the top-spec Quadrifoglio to view turbo pressure, power usage and component temperatures on the move. 

A range of new safety systems have also been added to the MY20 Stelvio, including lane keep assist, active blind spot assist, active cruise control, traffic jam assist and highway Assist - the latter three combining to enable level 2 semi-autonomous driving functions for the first time. 

The powertrain and chassis of the Stelvio Quadrifoglio remains as it was. The 2.9-litre V6 bi-turbo develops 503bhp and 600Nm of torque. Power is fed to Alfa’s Q4 all wheel drive and torque vectoring system via an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Prices should stay broadly in line with the current iteration’s £71,880 price tag when the refreshed Stelvio Quadrifoglio goes on sale in the UK later this year.
