Future Alfa 149 will be built on new platform
Alfa Romeo’s line-up is suffering big changes in order to bring thr italian car in European’s customers attention. After the newly-launched MiTo, Alfa Romeo is working on the next generation 149.
The future model will be a semi-successor for the curent 147, and that’s because the Italian company will build two different models for the three and five-door versions. MiTo will be the replacement for the three-doors version of the 147, while the 149 will be successor for the 147 five-doors version.
But the future 149 will not be built on the same platform as the current Fiat Punto, as previously reported.
Alfa Romeo will offer an all-new platform, with FWD traction, but an AWD version being possible for the top version.
149 will offer between 120 and 265 hp, the top version being powered by a 3,2 liters V6 engine.
149 will be revealed next year and production will begin at the end of 2009.
