Standard version Giulia one of many FCA debuts in Geneva
The Alfa Romeo Giulia in its standard guise is undoubtedly the star of Geneva for us Italian car enthusiasts. It’s a much more elegant appearance than its Quadrifoglio-sibling, with subtle chrome around the windows. This deep blue colour suits it wonderfully too. Engine-wise we’ll be seeing the new 2.0 TBi 200hp and 2.2 JTDm 180hp make their debut. These versions for us mere mortals will be available for order very soon. But FCA has much more in store for the Geneva visitors. More than we can ever remember, in fact. Alfredo Altavilla says it’s a unique happening. Abarth shall be drawing attention with its iteration of the 124 Spider, while Fiat has the Tipo lined up not only as a sedan, but also as a hatchback and a stationwagon. The official sketch below is of the latter.
Maserati has big news as well with its Levante. The make’s first-ever SUV officially entered production in Mirafiori yesterday. Alfa Romeo, besides the Giulia, will display the renewed Giulietta and MiTo. We’ve already seen the former, but the MiTo 2.0 (or actually 2.1) has not yet been revealed. Fiat also has their 500S in updated guise, while the Fullback pick-up has been given a special look for the occasion. We’ll be updating throughout the day with news from Geneva here at AutoEdizione, so stay tuned.
