Alfa Romeo premium SUV can deliver up to 280 HP, while the award-winning Quadrifoglio version can produce a total output of 510 HP. The design and
state-of-the-art mechanics of the inline four-cylinder engine, paired with
its variable-geometry turbocharger and its 8-speed automatic transmission,

TYPES OF SUVS:
COMPACT, CROSSOVER, AND SMALL
There are different types of SUVs in the segment. A compact SUV is a vehicle that blends the features of a traditional SUV with those of a smaller car. Compact SUVs offer more space, ground clearance, and all-terrain capability than a traditional car, while still being smaller and more fuel-efficient than larger SUVs. Crossover SUVs are usually built on a single structure that weighs less than a traditional SUV. Even though they are generally less capable due to their small size, crossovers can meet the needs of most drivers. Lastly, small SUV offer generous storage space. They are the choice of small families, who tend to prefer them to compact and midsize saloons.
