Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe Rumored To Premiere At Geneva

Alfa Romeo is said to be readying to unveil a Giulia Coupe model at the Geneva Motor Show 2017 on March 7.

The model is tipped to revive the Sprint name and will directly target the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe, BMW 4-Series Coupe and Audi A5 Coupe and act as the third model from Alfa Romeo’s fleet of vehicles based around its Giorgio platform.

Australian publication Motoring claims to have received word about the Giulia Sprint during the local launch of the regular Giulia sedan.

As with the sedan, the Giulia Sprint should be offered with the same array of engines. That will of course include the 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine of the Giulia Quadrifoglio to rival the German trio of performance-oriented coupes.

Things won’t end here for the Giulia family.

Further down the road, the Italian automaker is expected to release convertible and Sportwagon derivatives to offer customers no less than four body styles.

    Wait what ? I didn’t know they were planning a coupe, that’s interesting.

  • Ilbirs

    Great to see Alfa ressurecting its coupe tradition. As it’s something underpinned by Giorgio, we can also take some hints for a future Challenger on the same base.

    very cool

  • Nordschleife

    I hope it looks more distinctive than the above render. More like the 6C render that was going around. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8d613e7265f85e53af9bdb76843efe29312c850226b273cc1bf3cb4a2cc099b1.jpg

    i did not know that!
    But anyway, Alfa coupes will be back soon.
    i hope that they make coupe design much more different than sedan.i really like giulia sedan but my point is that ,bmw 3 and 4 series,mercedes c sedan and coupe etc look like fully same to me,just without 2 door. A coupe must have unique design.

  • Markey

    surprised…
    why on earth would the coupe take priority over the wagon puzzles me.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Because sex sells.

  • Six_Tymes

    want a wagon version badly

  • U8INIT

    IDK why folks are jumping up and down for this car :/ Different yea…cool maybe…better meh?! I am glad it’s here thou…I just don’t appreciate how this segment has been pushed upmarket and out of reach for some folks…

    • Tumbi Mtika

      And how just to bring in buyers they have to abandon their history.

  • DMJ

    They are taking too long to launch the wagon…if they dont release it till the end of this year, I will lease a german wagon again.

    Given how well rumors have been predicting things recently, I can’t wait!
