Alfa-Romeo 149

Alfa-Romeo 149

  When the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo revelaed that they would be replacing the venerable 147 model, it was assumed that the sport hatchback's successor would more than likely be called the 149. However that is not the case with the automaker and instead the 149 became what we know today as the Alfa Romeo Milano.

Alfa Romeo is working on a successor for the 147. It was supposed to be called 149, but Chrysler revealed by mistake its official name: Milano. The appearance of the Milano in Chrysler’s viability plan raised serious questions about if more Alfa cars will be heading stateside in the near future.

When/if the Milano appears in North America, the up-market hot-hatch would be a competitor for the Audi A3 . Engine choices should range between four and six cylinder, making 120 to 265 hp. While enthusiasts are big fans of hot-hatches, pricing will have to be very competitive for this to be successful with usually hatch-fearing mainstream America.

After last details about the Alfa Romeo 149 revealed last week, we bring you today new rendering of the future small car created specially for TopSpeed by our designer.

The 149 is based on the same platform as the Fiat Bravo and Lancia Delta. Just like the Alfa’s smallest car, the MiTo, the 149 will borrow from the lines of the 8C Competizione and translate it into a small hatch — not a bad place to start. Under the hood Alfa Romeo will place a range of 1.4-liter gas turbo and 1.9 diesel units ranging from 120bhp to 250bhp.

Its world debut will be made early in 2009 with production to begin later in the year.

AutoExpress has a new rendering of the future Alfa Romeo 149 . It will be offered in both three and five doors version and will go on sale in the middle of next year as a direct rival to Ford’s Focus (European version) .

This is the exact kind of design that will make small cars popular in the U.S. If (and this is a big IF) Alfa can bring this here as both stylish and frugal, it may have a revolution on its hands.

Progetto940.it revealed today a new rendering of the future Alfa Romeo 149 , this time inspired by the Kamal Concept and with the same styling as the new Mito and the 8C Competizione . If this sketch becomes the production car, it is just one more reason we want Alfa to return to the U.S.

The successor of the 147 will be built on an entirely new platform, internally known as the "C-Evo". The chassis is taken from Fiat Bravo and Lancia Lancia Delta Delta . Under the hood Alfa Romeo will place a 1.4 T-jet engine with output between 120 and 150 hp. The GTA version will be offered with either a 1.6 or a 1.8-liter engine with output up to 190 hp.

In less than a year we will see the official Alfa Romeo 149 . Quite literally all we will do is see the new 149 until Alfa decides to sell in the U.S. again. For Europe, the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show will be the place for the 149’s unveiling. Untiil then we speculate! This latest rendering come from the Italian page OmniAuto.

The future Alfa Romeo 149 will be built on a somewhat new platform that will be used in the future for other compact models. The platform, internally known as the "C-Evo" takes the chassis from Fiat Bravo and Lancia Delta and modifies it enough to be able to call it new. This platform will be use on all future segment C and D of the group, including the successor for the 159.

Here’s a new rendering of the future Alfa Romeo 149 , this time with style inspired by the 8C Competizione and the newly launched MiTo.

The future model will be a semi-successor for the current 147, and that’s because the Italian company will build two different models for the three and five-door versions. MiTo will be the replacement for the three-door version of the 147, while the 149 will be successor for the 147 five-door version.

149 will offer between 120 and 265 hp, the top version being powered by a 3.2-liter V6 engine. Its world debut will be made early in 2009 with production to begin later in the year.

A brand new Italian hot-hatch is currently in development by Alfa Romeo. Coming to replace the 147 that charmed all of us with an unmistakable design back in the year 2000, the new vehicle will be called 149. Following the Alfa Romeo’s “Cuore Sportivo” (sporty soul) slogan, the Italian compact to be launched in late 2007 is expected to surpass in terms of looks of all its competitors and offer a great driving experience. Let us hope that reliability and durability will be there to sustain such a beautiful design.
