Four new models by 2010 for Alfa Romeo

16 November 2006

Alfa will release four new models by the end of 2010, with a sporty supermini the first new arrival.

The car, codenamed 'Junior', will be based on the same platform as the Fiat Grande Punto. The three-door hatchback will sit at the sportier end of the supermini market, and rumour has it that the car will be offered with a turbocharged 1.8-litre engine, giving 230bhp.

Sales of the Junior should begin in the first half of 2008, and it should cost in the region of £11,000.

2009 will be an even busier year for Alfa, with two new models hitting the market. A replacement for the 147 will come along in the first few months of that year, and will be closely followed by the new 169, a big four-dour executive saloon to replace the ageing 166 (no longer sold in the UK). The price of the 169 is expected to be between £27,000 and £37,000.

The last of Alfa's new offerings will come at the beginning of 2010, in the shape of the CXover, a five-door coupe-like off-roader. Prices for this car are estimated to be between £19,000 and £31,000.

Alfa hopes that these new models will help the company reach its target of selling 300,000 cars worldwide by the end of 2010. It has a fair way to go - the Italian firm should sell 160,000 units globally by the end of 2006, a 17% growth on 2005's sales figures.
