The future of Alfa Romeo has long been the subject of discussion, with rumors that see the new CEO of the Biscione Jean-Philippe Imparato ready to give a change to the Arese brand, expanding and modernizing the range. Among the most anticipated innovations could also be the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta, a model that represented a good chunk of the success on the market in the recent past of the Italian brand and which at the end of 2020 went out of production a little quietly. An electric version of Giulietta could already be back on the road in 2023, with the compact that would exploit the synergies of Stellantis while maintaining the typical traits of the Biscione’s DNA.

In particular, Alfa Romeo is already working closely with the teams of Lancia e DS, with the three brands that will join forces to give life to a new generation of models that will share platforms, technologies, engines but which will aim to keep its identity intact. For this reason, the new Alfa Romeo Giulietta, if the rumors of recent weeks are confirmed, could be among the first premium models resulting from this Italian-French axis. From the design point of view, the starting point will be Tonale, the long-awaited SUV of the Biscione whose debut could be delayed for a few months in 2022 by the will of Imparato, eager to shake up the compact high-wheeled market by demanding a model that is up to par. Hence further work to upgrade the engines, in particular the powertrain of the plug-in hybrid version. Tonale’s look would be the starting point for the new Alfa style, effectively influencing the new Giulietta as well.

The starting point will be the EMP2 platform which has already hosted the New Peugeot 308, Citroen C4, Opel GrandLand X and DS4. The versatile architecture of PSA does not exclude traditional versions as well, with the possibility of seeing a complete range for the new Giulietta, declined with FireFly or PureTech engines as well as in a high-end full electric variant. Production is unlikely to be maintained in Italy: after the Alfa Romeo Brenner which will be born in Poland, another Alfa Romeo model could also be assembled abroad, with the Mulhouse and Rüsselsheim plants already equipped for the production of cars on the platform. EMP2. The compact from Arese it would therefore return in a completely renewed guise, a premium and electric (or electrified) Alfa Romeo Giulietta ready to make its mark in the C segment.
