Performance Ratings 

The 2023 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio rides on an all-aluminum 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, outputting 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. The exceptional performance of the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is powered by various performance features, including the eight-speed automatic transmission, an intelligent Q4 all-wheel drive system and DNA Pro Drive mode selector with the Quadrifoglio-exclusive Race Mode. Moreover, this sporty SUV takes you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 283 km/h. 

On the other hand, the 2023 BMW X4 M comes standard with the 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline-6 gas engine that produces 473 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. To get better horsepower, you need to opt for the available Competition Package, which offers the optional 3.0-litre turbo flat 6-cylinder engine that produces 505 horsepower, still less than what the Stelvio Quadrifoglio outputs. 

Exterior and Interior Design 

Besides excellent sport handling, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio also promises a design that will ensure you arrive in style wherever you go. The chic and elegant Italian craftsmanship, accompanied by the near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, a wide exterior paint colour palette, carbon fibre exterior body and bold wheel options, effortlessly impress onlookers on every leg of the journey. On the inside, the 2023 Stelvio Quadrifoglio is comfortable as it features versatile seating surfaces, generous cargo space and weather-proof seating options to offer superior relaxation. 

The 2023 BMW X4 M, visually, does not appeal as an SUV, it has a slick exterior with limited cabin size, which may sometimes fail to deliver the required comfort, especially on long trips. With a wide range of impressive exterior paint colours, the BMW X4 M creates an elegant statement loved by onlookers. But, if you’re planning to routinely ferry passengers, especially ones sitting in the rear, the limited headroom can be a big problem, discomforting fellow passengers. 

The Final Verdict

The Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio is a beautiful SUV with a new-age design followed by state-of-the-art amenities that are both practical and reliable. It undeniably has more cabin space than its industry rival, the 2023 BMW X4 M, which makes it an ideal choice when you regularly have more than three passengers onboard. Performance-wise, the Stelvio Quadrifoglio is better than the BMW X4 M, as the standard engine option delivers more power than both the basic and optional engines available of the latter one.
