Hot News: Alfa Romeo Confirms Raft of New Models

Fiat has made an unequivocal commitment to revitalising Alfa Romeo into a proper premium brand, including a planned return to the American market in 2012. And it’s planning to launch six new models to celebrate, including the new Spider and two Chrysler based 4x4s.

The first of the new cars will be the all-new replacement for the 159, named the Giulia. There will be two versions due in 2012, a saloon and a Sportwagon estate, both based on an extended version of the Giulietta’s platform.

A new Alfa Spider will follow in 2013 - the only model to be jointly developed by both Chrysler and Fiat in the next four years, using a shared platform and engine line-up.

Alfa will also produce two SUVs, the first will compete with the likes of the Audi Q5 and will be on sale in 2012. The second will be a Q7 rival due in 2014. Alfa don’t have an established 4x4 history, so both of these cars will be developed by Chrysler, but with Alfa-designed bodywork.

The final new model will be a five-door version of the Mito, but it won’t appear until after a major overhaul of the current model, due in 2012. For more details click here.
