Fiat, in a press conference yesterday, officially revealed the plans it has regarding North America and its Alfa Romeo brand.
From what was revealed, Americans will have a lot of reasons to get excited starting in 2012, when the Italian brand is going to brings the new Giulia sedan in the USA. The model, a replacement for the aging 159, will be arriving in both sedan and wagon form. Alongside it, a compact SUV is going to make an appearance, which will be built on a modified Giulietta platform.
In 2013, Alfa lovers are going to receive a five-door version of the MiTo compact hatchback. If diminutive city cars aren’t your cup of tea, then the news of a Spider convertible will get you excited. From all accounts, it might be based on the Pininfarina 2uettottanta concept.
In 2014 US Alfisti will receive a restyled Giulietta hatchback alongside a new, larger SUV which is going to be built on the platform of the next generation Jeep Liberty.
All in all, Fiat and Chrysler are keen on making Alfa Romeo a popular brand in the USA. Hopefully, at least for fans, they will take the right steps and succeed in their endeavor.
