Alfa Romeo Giulietta On The Way Out As Focus Shifts To SUV’s

Following on the from the announcement of Alfa Romeo’s parent company FCA with regards to Maserati’s plans for the next few years, news has reached us of approx timelines on new models along with how things are set to shape up for Alfa Romeo.

Our colleagues at Alfattitude have received concrete news regarding the future FCA models scheduled for production in the near future in Italy (JOB 1 – the first car coming off the production line ready to be sold):

M156/7 Ghibli/Quattroporte 07.2020
M240 SportsCar 09.2020
M182  Maserati D-SUV 07.2021
M189 Maserati GT 09.2021
AR Tonale 07.2021
AR Giulia / Stelvio MCA 10.2021

The Giulia and Stelvio facelifts scheduled for 2021 will be very profound, not just external/engines but will also see the interior and electronics (NIT) revised.

All this means there’s still no GTV in sight, while we know already that the “8C” project has been redirected to Maserati (codename M240, see our previous article on this issue).

While you digest those timelines of forthcoming models, there is also word on the Giulietta, the hatchback is said to be quietly let go next year, with no word on whether it will return in the line up again after 2021, aligned to the new family design language set by Tonale.

The forthcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale continues to go through the testing clinic, competing SUVs were brought in to compare it and get some opinions. SUVs like Nissan Qashqai, Audi Q3, BMW X2, Range Rover Evoque.

Another SUV has also been given the green light expected to sit above the Stelvio in the expanding Alfa Romeo range.
