Delayed for the better
Earlier this year, Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne laid out a new product strategy that saw the automaker turn much of its attention towards Jeep and Ram and away from Alfa Romeo. That decision delayed some of Alfa’s product plans until the 2017-2020 timeframe, and it's now time for Alfa to shine.
Alfa Romeo has a few novelties prepared by the end of the decade. If you follow the chart you can see the latest model exposed is the Alfa Romeo Giulia , which was recently tested by car aficionados and received awesome grades. The next to arrive will be the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which will be presented at the Paris Motor Show and is referred to as "mid-size SUV".
