This Italian car producer has great plans for the future. This summer they are planning to release Alfa Romeo 4C Spider on the market and after that they are making plans for expanding their USA car lineup with new models. Those models include new SUV and sedan that are supposed to be presented in the beginning of 2017 as models for 2017.
First to come will be Alfa sedan and afterwards the SUV will be released in following months. The SUV in question will be a D segment one and its release will be in last quarter of 2016 of first quarter of 2017 and its main competition will be BMW X3, Porsche Macan and Audi Q5. These 2 models will be part of 8 new models that will be released globally by Alfa by 2018 to reclaim some of their old fame and to face tough competition on the market.
2017 Alfa Romeo SUV Engine and Specs
Since the release of these cars is still far away there is no clear info about their specs, engines and design. There are only tiny bits of info supported by rumors on the market. Those rumors say this new 2017 Alfa Romeo SUV will have a turbocharged inline four engine that will be able to produce around 200 horsepower. However, this should all be taken with level of caution since the official info does not exist yet. There are rumors that the second engine will be available with this SUV and that it will be 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that will be able to produce 250 horsepower and 260 lb. –ft. of torque. That is pretty much it about this compartment, we have to wait and see will these mentioned engines find their way into the hood of this SUV.
2017 Alfa Romeo SUV Design
Since its release is not recent, info is not quite specific but there are some good guidelines to what this car will look like. It will have good design and features that will be combined with its fuel economy and decent level of luxury. The platform on which this car will be placed is RWD Maserati-designed platform code named “Giorgio” and it will be the same for sedan and SUV and it will be built in Alfa’s factory near Rome. Outside design of this SUV will pay a lot of attention to efficiency and weight reduction. Materials such as aluminum and chrome will be used for outside construction. This car will have standard Alfa’s grille which is inverted triangle and probably 17 inch wheels. Interior will be very comfortable and very luxurious with fine quality materials used. Latest tech available will be used so we believe this car has a bright future.
2017 Alfa Romeo SUV Release date and Price
Release date is most probably going to be first quarter of 2017, or maybe very late 2016 but first version is more probable. As for the price, we still do not have any info about that so stay tuned.
