Stelvio Quadrifoglio versus Giulia Quadrifoglio

For most automakers, the difference between a sedan and a sport utility vehicle would be pretty much a no-brainer. In the case of the Alfa-Romeo brand, however, it’s not as simple.

Alfa-Romeo engineers its vehicles, no matter what shape they take, with race-car inspired engineering. In fact, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the Giulia Quadrifoglio both sport the same engine configurations with the same horsepower and torque.

So, knowing that, what exactly are the differences between the two vehicles?

Differences Between the Stelvio Quadrifoglio & Giulia Quadrifoglio

  • Overall Weight This one is probably self-evident, but the Stelvio comes in at a hefty 4,034 pounds versus the Giulia at 3,571 pounds. Again, not exactly an earth-shattering revelation given that the Stelvio is an SUV and the Giulia is a car. 


  • Interior Space Again, this shouldn’t be news to anyone, but the Stelvio offers more interior space than the Giulia due to its SUV design. So, if you’re trying to keep family-hauling in mind with your Alfa Romeo, the Stelvio is the right choice. 


  • The Driving Thrill If you’re looking for more of that sheer driving thrill, then the Giulia is going to be the right choice for you. It’s driving dynamics mimic more of a race-car like feel than the Stelvio’s. Our friends at Goodwood Road & Racing go into more detail on that aspect if you’d like to take the time to read their thoughts. 


  • From Zero to Sixty-Two While the difference is practically unnoticed, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that the Stelvio goes from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds and the Giulia conquers it in 3.8 seconds. You read that correctly. The Stelvio SUV actually outsprinted the Giulia sedan from 0 to 62 mph when tested by Goodwood Road & Racing.
