Which Hot Alfa Would You Rather Have: The Giulia QV Or Stelvio QV?

It’s raining QVs at Alfa Romeo’s stand in Los Angeles, where besides the heavily marketed Giulia, the Italians debuted their first ever SUV, the Stelvio, in it’s in range-topping guise.

Aimed at the premium compact segment, the Stelvio is underpinned by the same architecture as its four-door sibling, from which it borrows its 2.9-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine, that was developed with the help of Ferrari.

The six-cylinder mill pushes out 505 HP and 443 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque, but unlike the rear-wheel drive Giulia, the Alfa Romeo’s SUV gets an all-wheel drive system, with a torque vectoring differential for better handling. As for the 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint, the SUV needs just 3.9 seconds, and it will keep going up to 177 mph (284 km/h).

The Alfa Romeo Giulia QV has the exact same output, but reaches the 60mph mark a tenth of a second faster at 3.8 seconds, while also boasting a higher top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h).

Choosing between the two would have tilted the balance towards the sedan until a few years ago, but given the increased popularity of SUVs and crossovers in the US market (and not only), designating a clear winner could be more a challenging task.

    The profile pic (#13) of the Stelvio reminds me of the Lincoln Edge (or is it the Ford MKX?).
