There have been a couple of iffy moments when it came to the future Alfa Romeo SUV : first people said an SUV will be launched , then that idea was dropped and now it’s back again. A few months ago, Fiat CEO, Sergio Marchionne confirmed that Alfa Romeo would be coming out with five new models . One of those newbies is to be the new Alfa Romeo SUV due to arrive in 2014.
The only 4x4 model Alfa Romeo has ever produced was the Matta unveiled in the 50s and was based on a Jeep Willys platform. The next Alfa SUV will be built on the platform of the future 2013 Jeep that will replace the current Patriot and Compass . This new SUV will rival that of the BMW X3.
The SUV will be approximately 4.5 m long and 1.8 m wide and will be offered with both petrol and diesel engines.
