Alfa Romeo is busy revamping their lineup first the 147 will be replaced by a much more fashionable sounding Milano at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The next model to undergo a drastic change will be the Alfa Romeo 159. It’s replacement will be called Giulia and should make an international motor show debut sometime in the next two years.
The all new 2012 Alfa Romeo Giulia will be built on an entirely distinct platform called C-Evoluzione, the new chassis will feature a longer wheelbase that will make for more aerodynamic shorter overhangs and will be suspended by a new, more sophisticated suspension. The exterior of the future Giulia is heavily inspired by the new Alfa Romeo MiTo, and just like the compact city car, the 159 replacement will be front wheel drive. However the top of the line Giulia will be offered with a much sportier all wheel drive system, and as an option Alfa Romeo will offer their stability enhancing Active Roll Control system.
Although this is just a rendering, the exaggerated roofline and large smooth shape is a look forward at the way that all cars will be styled in the near future. Short overhangs being a major part, not only do they reduce drag by making the silhouette into a smoother curve, but they also push the glass out towards the edges making the most of the available space inside. The Giulia also features a pair of fender vents borrowed from the 8C Competizione and the trademark inverted triangle grill set this new design apart as pure Alfa.
