Alfa Romeo Milano spy shots

Alfa Romeo’s successor to the 147, the Milano is nearing the end of its development by the Italian automaker. Set to debut this summer, the compact Alfa should be a serious competitor for models like Volkswagen Golf and the new Opel Astra.

The 2010 Alfa Milano is built on the same platform as the Fiat Bravo and will be styled after the popular Alfa MiTo; featuring compact driving lights and round LED lit taillights that protrude from the rear sheet metal.

Under the hood Alfa Romeo will be using a 1.4 Liter turbocharged motor as well as a 1.9 Liter diesel burning unit. Outputs should range from 120 HP to 250 HP. In either case, the four cylinder engines will be shifted through a six speed manual transmission.

VW golf just relaased its new models and it is sure interesting. I hoep Milano could really pose a competition this time.

While Alfas are based on the prosiac architecture of conteporary Fiats, they will never have the appeal of the best Germans (ie Mercedes and BMW). Now, I love Fiat, but what all Alfa enthusiasts really want is Alfa style (not the Mito mish-mash), combined with a proper sporting RWD platform or, if it must, a 4WD one that doesn’t weigh as much as Basingstoke. Until that day arrives, they will continue to be left as the pretty girl with no personality may at a dinner party.
