Alfa Romeo will launch nine new models by 2021 as part of their revival plan
Alfa Romeo boss, Reid Bigland, is planning a revival plan which will be spearheaded by the Giulia sedan and the soon to be revealed Stelvio SUV. Reid Bigland was brought in as the head of the Italian car maker to help improve sales.
The Stelvio will be launched at the upcoming Los Angeles Motor Show. Based on the Giulia, it will be powered by a range of four-cylinder and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. The manufacturer is looking to capitalise on the SUV boom. A larger SUV based on Alfa’s 5-series rival will be launched at a later stage. Another SUV is also expected to be in the works. This could be a smaller vehicle to rival the likes of the BMW X1 or a coupe version of the Stelvio.
Considering the current trend towards SUVs, Alfa Romeo are still deciding wether to develop a car to rival the 5-series. If the sedan is developed, it will come only after the larger SUV. At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Alfa could launch an estate version of the Giulia. It will combine the sporty looks and performance of the sedan with extended luggage space.
One of the nine new models will also include a hatchback set to compete with the Volkswagen Golf. It will be the successor to the Giulietta. The new car will come out in three or more years. A replacement for the Brera is also in the works. It would be a sporty vehicle available in a coupe or a convertible form to take on the likes of the Mazda MX-5. This car is at least four years away.
