But we have to wait to see a larger Alfa Romeo sedan.
Just this month, we received some bad news that Alfa Romeo's 5 Series-sized sedan had been delayed. We have been waiting for the day that Alfa Romeo can be a true luxury competitor with a full range of products to compete with companies like BMW and Mercedes. We probably won't see Alfa's 5 Series rival until 2021, but Automotive News just reported when we can expect to see the company's next model. Alfa Romeo now has three models on sale and will finally begin expanding its product portfolio in the United States.
The 4C sports car is a low volume seller, but no changes will be made to it until at least 2021. The Giulia has had some quality issues, but it will probably remain without any major refreshes until around 2020. The Stelvio is probably the most important model in the Alfa range because of the US's huge love of crossovers. We should expect to see the Stelvio in dealerships soon and it will probably be flying off of dealer lots. We already know that the 5 Series rival has been delayed, so the next model that Alfa Romeo will reveal will likely be a two-door coupe based on the Giulia. This car would compete with the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5 and is set to arrive in 2018.
We aren't sure whether or not this coupe will keep the Giulia name, or get its own unique nameplate. The car will likely come with the same 280 hp four-cylinder from the Giulia in base trims as well as a 505 hp Quadrifoglio version. The next car to arrive after the two-door coupe would be a larger crossover that would compete with the BMW X5 and Audi Q7. This model would be based on an elongated version of the Stelvio's platform. Finally, Alfa Romeo may work on a compact sedan/hatchback, but the company says that this model would only be important to Europe, not the US. We are most excited to see the 5 Series fighter from Alfa, but we'll take a two-door coupe based on the Giulia for now.
