Alfa Romeo will launch its first SUV in 2010. It will come to compete with Audi Q5 or BMW X3, and will feature sporty ambitions and extravagant design as well as excellent comfort.
It will be based on the Kamal SUV Concept launched in 2003 at the Geneva Motor Show. It will be offered in both three- and five-doors versions and is supposed to be based on the same Premium platform, which is now being used by models 159 and Brera vehicles.
Little under five meters, the future Alfa SUV will inherit the aggressive nature of the Kamal Concept. It will be powered by a 3.2 V6 engine with an output of 250 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. A diesel engine will also be available. The 2009 CXover will have a top speed of around 140 mph and will make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 7 seconds.
