Premium sedan future for Alfa Romeo Giulietta. The compact of the Biscione, which just this year went out of production after 10 seasons of honorable career, could immediately re-enter the Arese model range, reborn as a high-profile car that will be used by Stellantis precisely to compete with the Germans. The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta could arrive on the market as early as 2022, with the announcement that could be made in September, on the occasion of Tonale’s debut and the presentation of the new industrial plan signed by the new CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato.

The new Giulietta will therefore target the Mercedes, Audi and BMW models, with the aim of positioning itself within the line-up of the new group above the Peugeot 308, with which it will share the platform. The basis of the new Alfa premium sedan will be the EMP-2, which houses the model of the Lion and Citroen C4. Stellantis’ electrification goals could lead the new Alfa Romeo model to have a hybrid variant, although for now a fully electric version is excluded. The range of engines could be based on the FireFly, with powers up to 180 HP. The future compact car of the Arese car manufacturer will still maintain the typical features of Alfa Romeos in terms of design and above all driving dynamics, with a specific set up developed by the Italian brand to target customers who have slowly abandoned the brand over the years. Italian by opting for the fearsome German C segment.
Alfa Romeo Brennero, luxury electric SUV
The desire to relaunch Alfa Romeo would therefore not only pass through the SUVs, with Tonale on the launch pad and Brenner that is already beginning to peep ahead in view of the entry into production in 2022: the premium positioning of the Arese brand will push Stellantis to look new life for the brand also with types of cars more linked to the tradition of the Biscione, hence the choice to focus on the rebirth of Alfa Romeo Giulietta in a premium key. A choice that could be made official already in the first half of 2021.
