Smaller of Alfa Romeo’s planned fresh SUV designs spotted testing; will be twinned with fresh SUVs through sister brands Jeep as well as Fiat
Work can be under way on the smaller of Alfa Romeo’s two fresh SUV designs, with early mules already on the streets of Italy.
At last month’s unveiling of the fresh Alfa Romeo Giulia, Fiat Chrysler Auto boss Sergio Marchionne revealed the ambitious seven-style plan for the brand’s revival, which includes two ‘Utility Vehicles’.
The larger SUV can be supposed to be twinned with the upcoming Maserati Levante, although the Alfa will get its own outdoor as well as Internal design.
The smaller Alfa SUV will be twinned with upcoming Fiat as well as Jeep medium-sized SUVs as well as use the same basic structure. However, the Alfa Romeo style can be supposed to get its own distinct range of engines as well as transmissions.
Although that will engineering car can be a heavily chopped-about Fiat 500L, the idea’s thought to be a testbed for those Alfa Romeo engines as well as transmission.
The mule’s extended rear overhang can be necessary to accommodate the production Alfa’s exhaust system. the idea also gives a not bad clue to the size of the final car, which can be not expected until 2017.
Little news has emerged about Alfa’s fresh engine line-up aside through the availability of a fresh ‘Ferrari-derived’ V6. However, the Quadrifoglio performance style of the little Alfa SUV can be supposed to get the latest style of the highly regarded 1750 TBi engine used from the 4C sports car.
that will engine currently develops 235bhp as well as 250lb ft through just 2000rpm. The updated unit could get Multiair cylinder heads as well as can be supposed to improve on these figures as well as cutting fuel consumption.
