Performance Ratings

The 2023 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio rides on an all-aluminum 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine, producing 505 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque to deliver an adrenaline-charged driving experience. On the other hand, the base model of the 2023 BMW X3 M comes with a 3.0-litre M twin-power turbo inline six-cylinder engine that outputs 473 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque, less than what the Stelvio Quadrifoglio produces. In fact, if you choose to bump the BMW X3 M’s engine capabilities, the maximum horsepower it can produce is 503. 

Moreover, even with (or without) the available Competition Package — an additional performance enhancement package available on the 2023 BMW X3 M — you get about 5.95 km/l fuel economy in the city and approx. 8 km/l on the highway. These figures fall significantly short of what the Stelvio Quadrifoglio delivers — 7.2 km/h in the city and 9.7 on the highway. 

Design Features 

Showcasing intriguing craftsmanship attained using only the finest quality materials like carbon fibre, the new-age 2023 Stelvio Quadrifoglio delivers premium comfort and convenience. Its near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution offers precise performance, enhanced stability and improved handling even on the most challenging terrains. The proven track-inspired interior with the available Sparco Racing seats is another major highlight of the 2023 Stelvio Quadrifoglio’s fine interior styling. 

In contrast, the 2023 BMW X3 M showcases various updated design features from the regular BMW X3. Both the interior and exterior design are subtle, showcasing the perfect vibe of a BMW vehicle. Besides the use of ‘M’ badging across the cabin, there’s minimal innovation done on the design of this luxury SUV. 

Technology and Safety Features 

You will get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as a built-in Wi-Fi Hotspot with both these luxury SUVs. Charging ports for both front and rear passengers are installed across the cabin. With the wide infotainment system, you can access various other connectivity, entertainment and information options. Moreover, both these SUVs feature a premium Harman Kardon audio system to offer you an ultimate travelling experience. 

The 2023 BMW X3 M comes standard with only a few safety features and driver assistance technologies, including Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Departure Warning. On the other hand, the 2023 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio embraces an integrated suite of advanced safety systems and driver-assist technologies, protecting everyone safe against potential on-road hazards. Some of these safety features are:

  • Intelligent Lane Keep Assist System 
  • Driver Attention Alert 
  • Forward Collision Warning with Full-Stop 

Book the 2023 Stelvio Quadrifoglio at Alfa Romeo of Oakville 

As a final verdict, we recommend you opt for the 2023 Stelvio Quadrifoglio over the 2023 BMW X3 M, as it delivers better performance, fuel efficiency and a smooth ride both on and off-road. The BMW X3 M embraces somewhat similar mechanics as the X4 and a design inspired by the regular X3, which wouldn’t impress car buyers looking for something new and refreshing in a luxury SUV. So, save big while enjoying a race track-inspired speed with the all-new Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio.
