Prices start at £87,195 and finance rates are unlikely to be as competitive as the AMG / M / RS set on account of Alfa’s shakier residuals and less than stellar reliability rep, though we’ll be living with a Stelvio QF in the coming months and reporting back regularly on what’s fallen on and how long the dealer took to stick it back together.

Claims of 23.9mpg are broadly achievable so long as you’re not heading to a racetrack, but the range computer can get awfully pessimistic – it told us that the car would only proceed for another 145 miles after a few minutes of spirited, soulful Italian driving.
