2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio vs. 2022 Land Rover Defender

Traditional SUVs can be boring with their mundane powertrains and lack of a sophisticated interior feel. Take one step inside the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the expectations of what a memorable SUV ride should be. A powertrain that excels in making hearts pound with excitement is met with an interior that comes filled with the innovative comfort and infotainment technology that modern Colorado passengers will adore. Other SUVs like the 2022 Land Rover Defender lack the robust nature of the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, while also falling behind in the interior amenities that passengers have at their command.  


With the 2.9L V6 powering the 2022 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio across the road with gusto, thrills await everyone in the SUV. Sporting 505 horsepower and using an automatic eight-speed transmission to handle every gear shift with ease, driving around town or the highway is an energetic experience that is unmatched in the SUV market. In contrast, the base powertrain of the 2022 Land Rover Defender is a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that generates 296 horsepower and is handled by an eight-speed automatic transmission. For a powertrain comparable to the Stelvio Quadrifoglio, Defender customers will have to pay more for an upgraded trim level. Both of the SUVs are equipped with AWD as the standard drivetrain for manageable handling all year round in Colorado.  

Interior Features

Although both the 2022 Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the 2022 Defender feature standard heated functionality in the front seating, the Quadrifoglio also adds the same comfort to the rear seating. The Defender must be upgraded to a select trim level for this inclusion. Additionally, the Alfa Romeo is fitted with premium materials that add the class that the brand is synonymous with. While both SUVs are equipped with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard convenience applications, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio has bonuses to the overall entertainment package. Equipped with an impressive 15-speaker sound system to magnify every song played in the SUV, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is an audiophile’s dream. The Land Rover Defender lacks a robust sound system at its base level, requiring an upgrade to a select trim level to get a comparable audio system equipped.  

Safety Features

Given that both SUVs are boasting the reliability of AWD handling, Colorado cruising in any weather is a reliable experience. The Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the Defender are also equipped with their versions of Adaptive Cruise Control to make highway driving a much more pleasant experience. Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control aid in the all-weather capabilities of both SUVs, ensuring drivers have the grip they need to handle even the tightest turns and challenging road conditions.
