Looks good. I love the rear.

The angle of the wind-shield to front hood seems a bit abrupt / forced. The face isn't terrible - but I think Alfa should reconsider that Edsle grill.....

Not bad, nothing to get too exciting about either.

Love it. Has more character than the competition without looking awkward and try-hard like a Lexus. That side vent is nicely integrated.

good effort. they obviously had to play it safe design wise to sell volumes. Not convinced by the headlights, need to see it live. The license plate will obviously go to the side of the Alfa shield as on the 156/159, which is good. The rear is a bit of a let down, deja-vu. The rear lights and license plate area could just as well come from a skoda, audi, infiniti or a mix thereof (with a hint of maserati, only). safe. The interior from the renders looks great. the technical specs of the Quadrifoglio Verde seem excellent.

more pics, especially of one in white. looks good, but nothing revolutionary. but hey, they need to sell lots of these, and the competition includes the Jaguar XE, which is certainly not a stunner either...

As much as I hate to admit it, the Mercedes C Class has really grown on me a lot to the point that I really think it's rather amazing to look at in person, but to my eyes there is a gulf--stylistically speaking--between the C Class and the A4, 3 Series, ATS, XE, and Giulia. Performance wise I'm sure the differences are minor.

The white Giulia is better looking than the red one at least. ;)

If my choices were confined to the XE and the Giulia, I'd definitely go with the Giulia.

Who knows? Maybe the bulldog face is how Alfa will muscle in, that and 510 horsepower.:)

Getting this to the NA market as quickly as possible would be good for FCA I predict.

the design of this looks very cheap and boy-racerish to me. It could pass for a Hyundai from most angles, especially with the huge headlights. The designs of the other premium compact cars are for the most part much more refined and classy. 500hp from a 3.0l TT is pretty insane though. Completely unnecessary, but awesome.

How incredibly and utterly generic looking; the away the grille and you're left to guess which brand this belongs to. I don't see anything particularily elegant or athletic about it, either.
