The brand will celebrate its anniversary on June 24. A new model will be presented at the holiday, all information about which is so far kept secret.

The fact that on the day of its 100th anniversary, Alfa Romeo is going to introduce a mysterious car innovation, reports Motori Online. According to them, on June 24, the brand will present either a small B-segment crossover based on the PSA platform or a sports grand tour. Judging by the production plan of the automaker, which is published by foreign media, the brand wants to supplement its model line with a crossover, whose appearance is scheduled for 2022.

Experts are skeptical about the option with GT, although in the summer of 2018 Alfa Romeo reported immediately about two future hybrids under the cult names of 8C and GTV. However, after this five-year plan was revised. The company abandoned sports models for financial reasons, planning to bet on more massive cars.

The new SUV will be more compact than the same Stelvio and the upcoming Tonale.

 If the novelty gets a PSA “truck”, as written in the report, it can borrow a lot from the new Peugeot 2008. Recall that this model is equipped with a 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine producing 100, 130 and 155 hp, as well as a 1.5-liter diesel power 100 and 130 hp She also has an electric modification with a 136-horsepower installation and a “range” of up to 312 kilometers. How the manufacturer will react to information about the appearance of a new model, time will tell. This will be either a refutation or the first teaser.
