Alfa Romeo’s Highly-Anticipated Sedan Is Back On Track


At least that’s what Sergio Marchionne says.

Alfa Romeo has had a lot of trouble staying on track with its upcoming vehicles, especially the Alfa Romeo Giulia sport sedan. With recent reports of the sedan failing crash tests and production being delayed by several months, it’s hard to imagine the automaker is still considering green lighting the vehicle. According to Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, however, the Giulia is back on track with production set to begin in Italy on March 14. We've heard the same thing before, but hopefully the automaker's serious this time.

AutoExpress learned of Alfa Romeo’s production plans during a tour of the automaker’s Stabilimento Fiat de Cassino plant in Piedimonte San Germano, Italy. Unveiled at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Giulia is set to become the first mass-produced Alfa Romeo since the early ‘90s, so there’s a lot riding on the car. We can understand Alfa Romeo’s need to be perfect, but the time has come for the automaker to get on the horse or just call it quits. The Giulia is part of the automaker’s eight-vehicle lineup, which was set to be completed by 2018, but recent reports now indicate that the vehicles will not be here until 2020. Is Alfa Romeo pulling our leg again or is it finally getting its act together?
