Alfa Romeo Plans Two New Compact SUVs

Alfa Romeo is looking to emulate Porsche, another sporty brand, and produce two new SUVs designed to go head to head with Audi’s Q5 and upcoming Q3 crossover vehicles.

Autocar suggests that the smallest one will be based on the highly acclaimed Giulietta compact hatchback(pictured above), and will likely use Alfa’s Q4 all-wheel-drive system. It would logically follow that the larger SUV will be based on the upcoming mid-size Giulia sedan, but a partnership with Jeep is also being discussed.

With Alfa’s stated goal of increasing sales from 100,000 to 500,000 units, two SUVs would help the company reach those targets, especially in North America, a crucial market Alfa has failed to re-establish a presence in.
