Although Giulia and Stelvio have slightly raised the bar, Alfa Romeo is far from the infernal Trio Germanic Audi / Mercedes / BMW in terms of sales volume. He hopes, however, to come closer in the coming years with a number of new products, including a compact SUV. According to the journalists ofAutomotive News, This model is finally developed on the Jeep Renegade platform. Like the latter, it is also offered in a plug-in hybrid version.
Who says the Renegade platform is about traction, and above all, significant technical challenges for Biscione brand engineers who need to create a comfortable vehicle to drive from a base that is not specifically designed for it. Only the future will tell us if this dangerous mission will succeed.
Until the advent of this new information, almost everyone agreed that the compact SUV in question would inherit the Giulia's platform, and he would resume the principle of propulsion. Do you have to understand that the basic postulate was wrong? Or rather, that Alfa Romeo has changed his mind on the road? Hard to know
This new compact SUV should come on the market in 2020. It is assembled in the factory of Pomiglianio and not in that of Cassino, which currently deals with Stilfs and Giulia. Subsequently, Cassino will also host a new Maserati SUV based on the Stelvio platform.
