Looks promising given the Audi Q3 next to it I guess it's a customer clinic event, so probably still not 100% final; I like that the interior, despite being minimalist, is still immediately recognizable as an Alfa...

Anyway, this should finally give Alfa Romeo some volume, even if mostly outside the US. Ultimately. it will be down to offering a wide enough range of engines and trims to cover the segment (the Giulia and Stelvio are IMO seriously hampered by the lack of low powered petrol and fleet trim options in Europe); Like a Q3, X1, X2, GLA and all otehrs, volumes will be achieved by small, sub 150hp (or even 130) engines and a low entry price (that catches customers) that is then driven up dramatically with options, but becomes again less dramatic in a monthly lease payment...
