Alfa Romeo Milano unofficially revealed

The future Alfa Romeo Milano has been caught fully undisguised. And even if we only see the front of the car, is clear that the design is hardly inspired by the new MiTo. The new Milano will compete with models like BMW 1-Series and Audi A3.

The new Milano will share its platform with the future Alfa 159 (or Giulia as it is more commonly known). The platform, called C-Evo, will be available in both front and four wheel drive layouts. With the 4WD version reserved for future GTA models.

Under the hood Alfa Romeo will use both four and six cylinder engines to power the Milano, making 120 and 265 HP respectively.

The next generation Alfa Romeo Milano has been caught testing on the streets and the race racetrack by our friends at World Car Fans. If the production model is offered with those rally inspired O.Z. style multispoke rims, the Italian automaker will have something very fashionable bringing car shoppers into their showrooms.

Despite the amount of automotive camouflage, the inverted triangle grill is a signature of the Alfa Romeo and a dead giveaway to this 147 replacement. At first the bright round taillights make the FIAT five door look like something else, but at the end of the video, when the light hits the hatch just right, you can see the rest of the lamp.

The future Milano will share its platform with the future Alfa 159 (or Giulia as it is more commonly known). The platform, called C-Evo, will be available in both front and four wheel drive layouts. With the 4WD version reserved for future GTA models. With the way that things are looking between Chrysler and FIAT, we might just see a Milano on the streets of the U.S. sometime soon.

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.

Alfa Milano GTA renderings

Alfa Milano GTA renderings

Here’s a quick recipe for a rendering of the Alfa Romeo Milano GTA: start with the spy shots, take a few hints from the teaser image, and then photoshop what was learned over the MiTo GTA photos. While this formula would normally not earn a spot on our page, the result from an Alfa Blog submitter was done strikingly well.

As Alfa Romeo changes the remaining number cars to names, the Milano will be the replacement for the 147. This will be an entry into the luxury small car market, so the Milano’s name competition will be models like the Audi A3 range. We expect the engine lineup to include four and six cylinder engines starting at 120 hp and topping out with the GTA at about 265 hp.

Alfa Romeo Milano - teaser image?

Alfa Romeo is preparing a successor for the 147. As Alfa’s evolution goes we were predicting it would be called the 149, but last month Chrysler accidentally revealed that number scheme was going out the door.

Now we know its planned to be called Milano, and that there are plans to sell it in the U.S. If this teaser image is to be believed, it would will be a welcomed rival to cars like the Audi A3. Although we can’t see much, the linage to the little brother MiTo is obvious. When this curvy little car finally breaks cover, we expect a lineup that includes four and six cylinder engines making 120 to 265 hp.

Alfa Romeo is working on a successor for the 147. It was supposed to be called 149, but Chrysler revealed by mistake its official name: Milano. The appearance of the Milano in Chrysler’s viability plan raised serious questions about if more Alfa cars will be heading stateside in the near future.

When/if the Milano appears in North America, the up-market hot-hatch would be a competitor for the Audi A3. Engine choices should range between four and six cylinder, making 120 to 265 hp. While enthusiasts are big fans of hot-hatches, pricing will have to be very competitive for this to be successful with usually hatch-fearing mainstream America.

2010 Alfa Romeo 149 - new rendering

After last details about the Alfa Romeo 149 revealed last week, we bring you today new rendering of the future small car created specially for TopSpeed by our designer.

The 149 is based on the same platform as the Fiat Bravo and Lancia Delta.

Under the hood Alfa Romeo will place a range of 1.4-liter gas turbo and 1.9 diesel units ranging from 120bhp to 250bhp.

Its world debut will be made early in 2009 with production to begin later in the year.
