Alfa Romeo is working on new Giulietta and 4CJanuary 2, 2018
The new 4C will definitely lose the manual transmission, and Giulietta can get a rear-wheel drive.
After the premiere of the Giulia sedan and the crossover Stelvio, the portfolio of products of the Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo has been significantly updated. According to rumors, a compact crossover is also under development. It also became known that the company is developing a new hatchback C-class Giulietta and a compact coupe 4C. This is reported by the publication Auto Express.
“In order to fully update the range of Alfa Romeo models, we need another pair of new products – something in the C-segment and obviously a sports car,” said Roberto Fedeli, Chief Technical Officer of the company.
The new Alfa Romeo Giulietta could be built on the reduced platform of the Giulia sedan. This would mean the appearance of a rare for the C-class rear-wheel drive hatchback, the last of which was the BMW 1 Series. The Italian-American concern FCA, which owns the Alfa Romeo brand, refuses the front-drive models of this market segment (Dodge Dart, Chrysler 200 and Lancia Delta), so it’s too difficult to make a profit.
The development of an updated version of the coupe / roadster 4C became known earlier. However, Roberto Fedelie revealed the cards, saying that the company is considering a long-term program of this model. Already put questions about the replacement of the platform and motor Alfa Romeo 4C. There are several development options on the management table.
Earlier it became known that Alfa Romeo found in their cars a poor-quality brake fluid.
