Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe Rumored To Debut Soon

New reports are saying the Alfa Romeo Giulia may get a coupe version that could debut next month.

Although the Giulia isn’t a popular seller in North America yet, the model is only just ramping up after its December introduction. January saw a whopping 70 sales, beating December’s 29 by a mile.

Positioned as a rear-drive alternative to BMW’s 3 and 4 Series, as well as other German competitors, the long-to-arrive Giulia’s American success is far from guaranteed, though its broad price range leaves plenty of room for new customers enticed by its Italian flair.

Alfa’s plan to cement its U.S. return includes launching nine new models over the next five years. According to one report, the next model coming down the pipe is a no-brainer.

Australia’s Motoring claims Alfa will bring a two-door version of the Giulia to the Geneva Motor Show next month, likely bearing the classic Sprint moniker.

There’s no confirmation from the automaker, nor is there an explanation of where this information came from, but it seems an entirely likely way for the brand to diversify its lineup. We already know of the upcoming Stelvio SUV, meaning Alfa needs seven more models to flesh out its stable.

A coupe version of the Giulia would allow Alfa to take on two-door competitors like the strong-selling Audi A5. We have to assume a twin-turbocharged Quadrifoglio will be part of the mix, as the Audi S5 needs a competitor, too.

When and if it shows up — hopefully on time — the Giulia Sprint will no doubt carry a heftier price tag than its sedan sibling. Given the way automakers have erased two-doors from the lower rungs of their lineups, it wouldn’t be a shock to see it arrive in mid-range and high-spec trims only.
