Alfa Romeo is famed for manufacturing cars that are greatly admired by many. When a new version of the Alfa Romeo Brera 2005Â was released at Geneva Motor Show 2015, replacing the discontinued GTV model, it gotÂ fans very excited. The car offered a modern interpretation based on Alfa classics. Though Alfaâs Brera 2005Â did not go into production in 2005 and theÂ âscissor-opening doorsâ were replaced by the traditional looking doors, nevertheless, the car had found favour with a niche group for its looks alone.
Today, the company has definitely gone some way towards reinventing itself by introducing its first-ever SUV in the shape of the Stelvio, and a larger, seven-seatÂ SUV to take on the Audi Q7Â already in the pipeline. And now, Alfa Romeo has revealed plans for a new Giulietta and a replacement for its 4C coupe.
Of course, the priority of the company is to produce car models with the biggest global appeal to remain profitable, which is why the next new Alfa will be that Audi Q7 rival, which willÂ also see the manufacturer’s first foray into the world of hybrid propulsion systems.
Although crossovers and SUVs seem to dominate markets around the world at the moment, Alfa’s chief technical officer, Roberto Fedeli, sees a need to fill a couple of gaps in the company’s portfolio.
“In order to complete the Alfa range of products we need another couple of pillars â something in the C-Segment and then obviously a sporty product, a very sporty product.” – Alfa’s chief technical officer, Roberto Fedeli
The problem with the C-Segment is Fedeli concedes that it’s “a very local market and not a global one,” which he then went on to clarify means, “it’s very difficult to make a profit.”
An update to the 4C coupe and spider will be produced before the decision is finally made on whether to completely re-engineer and redesign the 4C.
