Building Sedans To Beat BMW Is The First Thing We Would Do To Improve Alfa Romeo
Alfa Romeo seems to have a big problem with delivering on promises. Although the upcoming Giulia looks epic, production delays have postponed the sedan’s arrival in the US. As of now, the 4C is the only available model from the Italian automaker. The 4C is an interesting little sports car, but we doubt that many people will be cross shopping it with higher-volume models from BMW or Porsche. In order to truly compete with other luxury automakers, Alfa needs to deliver on its promises and bring more cars stateside!
Alfa has been promising a full US return with a $6 billion investment. We know that Alfa is working on the Giulia sedan and the Stelvio SUV. These models should be nice Italian alternatives to the BMW 3 Series and X3. It’s a start, but it’s going to take a whole lot more than that to conquer the Germans. In order to compete with BMW, Alfa needs to build at least two more sedans. A sedan slotted above the Giulia would compete with the 5 Series and a future QV version could give the next-generation M5 something to worry about. The Giulia QV already makes 510 horsepower from a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. Imagine a midsize sedan that borrows the 3.9-liter twin-turbo V8 from the Ferrari California T tuned to about 600 horsepower!
