Alfa Romeo SUV in development
According to a source with close connections to the management of Fiat, Alfa Romeo is now working fulltime to get their first SUV ready. This should be a quite compact C-segment SUV with sporty characteristics; as an Alfa Romeo should be. The intention is to make the car fairly unique and put it up against the Range Rover Evoque (which is a difficult opponent). FGA wants to market this car as a full-on premium product, so say these first rumors.
They expect to get immediate results in the US with this car. The name is not yet known, but they have been considering this SUV ever since the 2004 Kamal-concept. Production should take place in Mirafiori, while the launch date is said to be 2015.
