2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio vs. 2022 Audi SQ8

Italian design and superior performance are trademarks of the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio. For drivers that are seeking a deluxe SUV experience that adds an air of exclusivity to their daily ride, the Alfa Romeo meets this lofty goal. Passengers will adore the high-quality interior amenities they have available to them on every adventure. Competitors such as the 2022 Audi SQ8 attempt to deliver a similarly exclusive ride to the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, but fail to do so in several regards.  


Getting behind the wheel of the 2022 Stelvio Quadrifolgio and engaging the twin-turbocharged 2.9L V6 engine is a sensation that sends hearts pounding. The engine roars to life with a unique sound as drivers take command of all 505 horsepower that the SUV generates. Comparatively, the 2022 Audi SQ8 comes equipped with a larger 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Despite the increased size, the engine is weaker at 500 horsepower. This larger engine also contributes directly to lower fuel efficiency than the Alfa Romeo. The 2022 Stelvio Quadrifoglio gets an EPA estimated 17 MPG city/23 MPG highway fuel economy, while the 2022 Audi SQ8 only gets to 15 MPG city/21 MPG highway estimates. AWD handling comes standard on both deluxe SUVs.  

Interior Features

Spaciousness and deluxe interior features adorn both the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the 2022 Audi SQ8. An area that the Alfa Romeo stands apart from its Audi counterpart is in how many passengers get to experience the joys of heated seating. While both SUVs have the functionality in their front seating, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio also adds it to the rear seats. This makes the Alfa Romeo a more desirable option for wintertime driving in Colorado when it comes to ensuring everyone in the vehicle is given premier comfort. Meanwhile, both SUVs have extensive infotainment options that will please any passenger. Options including SiriusXM® radio and integrated navigation make the Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the SQ8 worthy of their premium standing in the SUV market.  

Safety Features

Both SUVs have deluxe driver-assistance technology to make their ability to handle any driving condition effortless. Starting with their respective AWD platforms, superb maneuverability is perfectly suited to cater to demanding Colorado roads during winter. This is further supplemented by both Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control found on both SUVs. Highway trips are made much more pleasant on the driver thanks to the standard Adaptive Cruise Control system that both SUVs have in their extensive application arrays.
