Alfa Romeo wants to challenge German supremacy in the premium market. To do this, the Italian firm has invested the segment of sedans and SUV by launching the Giulia and Stelvio, two models with a strong Latin character. This desire to hustle Mercedes, Audi and BMW will give birth to other new short or medium term. However, do not expect to see a cut version of the Stelvio arrive. Alfa Romeo said through its head of design that this model was not on the program.
The vehicle (the Stelvio, NLDR) already has the air of cutting without sacrificing habitability, giving customers the best of both worlds,” Scott Kurger told Autocar journalists. Therefore, the BMW X4 can sleep soundly, it will not have to worry about a transalpine competitor that could become cumbersome. Note that this increasingly popular segment also counts the Mercedes GLC Coupé. In addition, an Audi Q4 of the same barrel is expected for 2019.
As for Alfa Romeo, its priorities are probably elsewhere. The firm in Biscione wants to market a large rival sedan BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E Class in 2021. In addition, the site Automotive News usually well-informed evokes a Giulia Coupe for 2018 and a large SUV type Audi Q7 in the coming years .
