2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA
Alfa Romeo isn’t the first brand you think of when it comes to lightweight performance sedans. But the Italian automaker is looking to flip that narrative with the arrival of the Giulia Quadrifoglio GTA.
Lighter, faster, and more powerful than any version of the Giulia Quadrifoglio, the Giulia GTA — it stands for Gran Turismo Alleggerita or “Grand Touring Lightened” — represents a complete makeover of the Giulia sedan.
Significant changes can be seen in the exterior, interior, and drivetrain departments, so much so that you’d be excused for thinking that Alfa Romeo has lost its marbles and has decided to dive in the deep end of the performance sedan pool. Not that we’re complaining; the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA has the vibe of a king slayer. It certainly looks like one.
Going Extreme: The Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA and GTAm
Following a couple of decades in disgrace, Alfa Romeo started to bounce back toward better days with cars like the 4C and Giulia Quadrifoglio. Now, the Italian carmaker takes yet another step toward the high-performance realm with the Giulia GTA and Giulia GTAm, two limited-edition sedans that pay tribute to iconic cars from the 1960s. Unveiled at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, both are lighter and more powerful than the Giulia Quadrifoglio, while the GTAm is a road-legal race car with only two seats, lightweight door panels, and room for helmets and racing suits.
2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Nring Edition
Named after two of the most extraordinary stretches of paved surface, the Stelvio QV NRing may present the only vehicle named after a mountain pass and a race track. One would expect to see the incredible supercar hidden behind this name, but the Stelvio QV is an SUV. A mad one at that, and even madder as the super-exclusive NRing Edition. Revealed alongside the aesthetically stunning Giulia QV NRing Edition, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio shares its unique ability to evoke Alfa Romeo Nurburgring achievements not many can match. However strange it may sound, the Alfa Romeo was cool at the Nurburgring before anyone could be cool there. This SUV celebrates that achievement.
2019 Alfa Romeo Tonale Concept
The Alfa Romeo Tonale is a crossover concept introduced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Smaller than the Stelvio, the Tonale concept is based on the Jeep Renegade and previews the company’s second crossover. It’s also Alfa Romeo’s first hybrid vehicle. There’s no word as to when it will go in production, but it should happen sometime in 2020.
It’s been three years since Alfa Romeo joined the SUV market with the Stelvio, and the Italian firm is considering an expansion. With full access to parent company FCA’s platforms, Alfa Romeo is putting the Small Wide 4x4 chassis to good use. Already available in the Jeep Renegade, Jeep Compass, and Fiat 500X, these underpinnings will be adopted by the Tonale, Alfa Romeo’s smallest crossover yet. When it hits the market in 2020, the production version of this concept will compete against premium offerings like the Mercedes-Benz GLA and BMW X1.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta Refuses to Die as Alfa Introduces Updates for the 2020 Model Year
Introduced in 2010, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta is very long in the tooth as of 2019, but this isn’t stopping the Italian firm from keeping the hatchback in production with mild upgrades. Following a small facelift in 2016, the Giulietta shows off a new update at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Unfortunately, it’s far from impressive.
Alfa Romeo Tonale concept previews Jeep Renegade-based SUV with hybrid power
Alfa Romeo is about to launch its second SUV and gave us a preview of things to come at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The company’s upcoming crossover is called the Tonale and its smaller than the Stelvio. Likely based on the Jeep Renegade, the Tonale fits in the compact market and looks surprisingly sporty. The Tonale is also Alfa Romeo’s first plug-in hybrid.
Check Out This Walkaround of the All-New Almas by Mole Costruzione Artigianale
Mole Costruzione Artigianale’s second public project is called Almas, and it’s a ground-up new super GT car that could not have come from anywhere else but Italy. The design study will be unveiled at the 2019 Geneva motor show where we hope we will learn new things about it as current information is rather limited, to say the least.
Mole Costruzione Artigianale Almas oozes Italian style. It leaves a little tricolored puddle wherever it sits. It’s currently just a design study by Mole, the company that you may remember from its custom Alfa Romeo 4C project called Alfa Romeo Mole Costruzione Artigianale 001.
Unlike that Alfa Romeo 4C-based project, though, the Mole Almas isn’t built on another car’s underpinnings - it’s bespoke GT car with its own platform and this has given designers the freedom to make it look even more extreme. Its exterior design and styling certainly, the work of Umberto Palermo and Paolo Scudieri, make it stand out and the result is quintessentially Italian and very sculptural - it very successfully borrows design elements from classic Alfa Romeo and Maserati models, but everything is neatly integrated and the result is very visually cohesive.
Both its chassis and body are made from carbon fiber in order to keep weight down. We don’t know how much it weighs, or any technical facts for that matter, but we may learn more after it debuts at the 2019 Geneva motor show.
2019 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ti Euro Spec
The Alfa Romeo Stelvio has already been around for a while, and the Italian automaker will introduce a new, posh, trim line at the 89th Geneva Auto Show called the Ti. It stands for ’Turismo Internazionale,’ and it’s a nod to Alfa’s storied past. This variant will be equipped with the meatier of the two 2.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-four engines, new burnished taillights, and new wheels to round things out.
This piece of news may already seem confusing to those of you that are familiar with Alfa’s American range of models. That’s because over in the U.S., Alfa is already offering the Stelvio Ti for the 2019 model year. In fact, you can choose between the $44,495 Stelvio Ti, the $46.995 Stelvio Ti Lusso, and the $47,295 Stelvio Ti Sport. All of these come with the 2.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-four engine too. However, there will be differences between the European-spec model and the U.S.-spec ones.
2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia
Introduced in 2013 as the company’s first true-blue sports car in decades, the Alfa Romeo 4C soldiered on into 2019 with almost no upgrades. At the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, the Italian company launched the 4C Spider Italia, a limited-edition roadster with a handful of extra features. Although it doesn’t stray far from the regular model, it confirms that the 4C Spider will remain in production for the 2020 model year.
With the Coupe discontinued at the end of 2018, the Spider remains in dealerships for at least one more year, but the Italia is far from special. Finished in an exclusive paint and fitted with custom graphics and badges, it’s just a poor attempt to keep this bare-bones sports car appealing among newer products. Is it worth getting one? Let’s find out below.
The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia is Good News, Bad News at the Same Time
If you’re a fan of performance cars, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show must be really boring to you. Packed with trucks and special-edition SUVs, you have to dig deep to find some cool sports car in there, and most of them are actually classics. There is an exception worth checking out though: the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia.
A limited-series, special edition version of the familiar roadster, the 4C Spider Italia comes with good and bad news for both Alfa Romeo and sports car enthusiasts.
The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia Is the Best-Looking Debut at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, But Is It Too Little Too Late?
First introduced way back in 2013, the 4C was the first mass-produced Alfa Romeo vehicle for the North American market in the 21st century. And what a comeback - this thing ticks all the boxes when it comes to driving nirvana. Made from carbon fiber and aluminum, the 4C is lightweight, while the exterior dimensions are compact, which combine with the mid-engine drivetrain package to make for some seriously impressive driving dynamics. We love it, but in the six years since its debut, not much has changed, and sales have taken a hit. Now, Alfa is offering a special edition at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show that’s leaving us wondering - is it too little too late?
2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Italia is a final attempt from Alfa to stay relevant
Alfa Romeo showed up at the Chicago Auto Show with the 4C Spider Italia Edition. It’s the same 4C Alfa’s been selling in the U.S. for almost half a decade already, but the novelty is you can now have it in this nice Misano Blue Metallic paint job if you pay $5,000 more on top of the $1,595 destination tax.
The Alfa Romeo 4C was the second car Alfa Romeo brought Stateside after selling almost 100 of its wonderful 8C sports car in both coupe and roadster guise. The 4C is a much more compact version but, in true Alfa tradition, it looks really well and it drives well too. The issue is that the Italians haven’t really been all that interested in trying to refresh the car and, now, the 4C is a pretty but overpriced car that desperately needs a replacement worth of sharing the garage with the Stelvio Quadrifoglio and the Giulia Quadrifoglio.
Alfa Romeo, Fiat, and Jeep are Now Skipping the Paris Auto Show Too
The auto show exodus isn’t slowing down anytime soon. Now, three of FCA’s biggest brands have announced their intentions of skipping the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Fiat, Jeep, and Alfa Romeo won’t be in attendance in Paris this coming September, joining a long list of companies that include Lamborghini, BMW, Volkswagen, and Mercedes-Benz that won’t be around when the Paris Motor Show opens its doors.
2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia And Stelvio Nero Edizione Package
The Giulia and Stelvio represent two of Alfa Romeo’s most prominent models. The automaker also happens to sell both models here in the U.S. That made it easy for Alfa Romeo to bring a pair of special edition models to the 2018 New York Auto Show, dressing up its sedan and SUV in black trim, slapping “Nero Edizione” badges on both of them, and then offering them as special edition models. And so, here they are, the Alfa Romeo Giulia Nero Edizione and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Nero Edizione.
Alfa Romeo Giulia And Stelvio Get Edgy With Nero Edizione Package
We’ve seen plenty of automakers offer up fresh new special editions through the application of various dark-colored aesthetic touches, and now Alfa Romeo is getting in on the action with a new Nero Edizione Package for its Giulia sports sedan and Stelvio SUV. Upgrades include a slew of new bits and pieces for the exterior, giving the models a bespoke appearance to entice would-be customers.

2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupé Competizione
Five years since its introduction, the Alfa Romeo 4C is still alive and kicking. The sports car even got a prime placement at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show courtesy of a pair of special edition models, one of which is called the Alfa Romeo 4C Competizione. The special edition 4C is the recipient of model-specific styling cues that separate it from its standard counterparts. By virtue of its status, only 108 units of the 4C Competizione will be available to the public.
