Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio Named Northwest’s ‘Most Fun SUV’ for Second Consecutive Year

September 9, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – For the second consecutive year, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio has been named “Northwest Most Fun SUV” by the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) at its annual “Run to the Sun” media drive event.

Over the course of the 459-mile drive route, participants had a chance to drive a number of competing vehicles and voted on what vehicle they would choose in a number of categories.

“When the Alfa Romeo Stelvio is matched against the competitive segment it retains the title of best performance SUV,” said Nik Miles, Run to the Sun chairman and Vice President of NWAPA. “Words cannot replace the experience of driving this Italian SUV on the roads of Oregon and Washington. This experience clearly impressed the 24 judges in this competition.”

In retaining its title as Northwest Most Fun SUV, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio topped a selection of recently introduced challengers in its category.

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio brings world-class performance, seductive Italian style and an exhilarating driving experience to the premium midsize SUV segment.

With the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, where other SUVs stop at utility, Alfa Romeo took on the challenge to create the perfect mix of high performance, capability and design.

With best-in-class 505-horsepower powered by a 2.9-liter, all-aluminum, direct-injection, 24-valve, twin-turbocharged intercooled V-6 engine, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is one of the fastest SUVs in the world with a top speed of 176 mph that set a Nürburgring lap time of 7:51.7 and boasts a best-in-class 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds.
