Interested in visiting Alfa Romeo of Winter Haven to test drive the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio near Lakeland, FL? Here’s some news to whet your appetite. Within the last two weeks, this immaculate performance SUV earned not one, but two, prestigious awards – and on back-to-back days, no less.

The first award came courtesy of the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA), which recognized the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio as the “Most Fun-to-Drive Vehicle” and “Most Fun SUV” at the association’s 12th annual “Run to the Sun” event. The Alfa Romeo brand’s debut SUV sprinted past 18 other vehicles for these awards – and when we say “sprinted past,” our Alfa Romeo dealers serving Auburndale, FL mean it literally. That’s because the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio delivers 505 horsepower, a 3.6-second 0-60 mph time, and a top speed of 176 mph, all of which are class-leading numbers.

Summing up the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio model’s dominant performance, NWAPA President John Vincent said, “With 505 horsepower on tap, plus a sophisticated all-wheel-drive system and an electronically controlled suspension, the Stelvio was well-suited to both the vast straights and twisty canyons on the drive.”

NWAPA’s award was followed the very next day by “Performance SUV of the Year” accolades from the Automotive Video Association (AVA). Here, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio faced tough competition in the form of the BMW X3 M40i and the Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 63, but again, the Italian-engineered masterpiece rose to the top. This SUV has so many things going for it. Its powertrain is of course a big asset, but the best automobiles also embrace premium styling and cutting-edge technology, and the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio has these things in spades.
