Surely, Italy can do better than knocking off a Jaguar.
After revealing its exciting new Ferrari-powered Giulia sedan last month, Alfa should be hard at work with its upcoming SUV, expected to be launched in late 2016 as the company's next step towards a full-fledged comeback. And while few details have yet to be released regarding any of the SUVs specs, rendering artist Theophilus Chin has just released two images detailing his conceived design for the first Alfa Romeo sport utility. In this case, he has imposed the front grille and fascia of the Giulia on another future SUV model you might find familiar.
If the body showcased here rings one bell too many, that's because it seems to be based on the upcoming Jaguar F-Pace (and C-X17 concept), another company-first which will likely rival Alfa's offering once they both hit the market. Seeing as this rendering has little to be based on besides what Alfa has already given us, it does offer some hints of how the Italian design language could work on a larger, bulkier SUV. But until Alfa offers us more details, we're willing to fantasize about an SUV or crossover that offers handling and performance fit for the manufacturer's fresh new image and return to America. But for the moment, would Chin's design be good enough to fill that role?
