Does Alfa Romeo have what it takes?

Everyone knows how competitive this segment is and how long much of a head start some competing brands have had, BMW and Mercedes to name a couple. Yes they had some reasonable success with the Giulia, but what's to say the Alfetta will be any good?

One detail feeding the into the confidence in this product is the fact its a platform is diverse. Meaning it will be built to support everything from the Giulia's 2.0-Liter Gasoline engine all the way up to a fully electric powertrain.

It has what it takes but at the right time. Since the Stelvio is rolling out soon, it'll build the brands recognition even more to prove that they have what it takes to take on the likes of BMW and Mercedes. I think if the Alfetta were to drop prior to the Stelvio (which obviously it isn't) then there would have been something to worry about, but with them building their lineup and people familiarizing themselves with the name, I think the Alfetta doesn't have much to worry about

Alfa Romeo engineering will speak for itself in the premium market along with some smart advertising. That's what happened with the Giulia, they promoted the QV and it worked by capturing the attention of the world. People were waiting for one and those who couldn't get the QV were happy with the standard models too.

There are a lot of guys out there that are loving their Ti Giulias and are very content. Everyone wants the QV but of course it's not within reach for many. That being said, you don't need to go the QV route to get an amazing package and vehicle. It still has good power, it still looks great and performs well overall.

The Stelvio shouldn't be any different and at that point it'll show people even more that the next product, hopefully the Alfetta, is going to be worth it.

Tunes have been coming out for the base and other cheaper versions of both the Giulia and Stelvio. Options are around if you don't mind aftermarket.
