Alfa Romeo has always been surrounded by numerous speculations, gossips, etc. Why? It is still unclear. Maybe because of Alfisti’s desire for a new better machine, or maybe because of the company’s uncertainty over the last few decades. Whatever the case is, we are facing the same problem nowadays.
There are countless articles regarding 8C successor, newly developed 6C, upcoming Sprint, and so on. In this article, we are going to discuss Alfa Romeo 2020 models based on info available to us at this moment. Let’s start with models already established in Alfa’s family.
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulietta
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulietta is still going to be produced, even though it first came out nearly a decade ago. Why is Alfa still pushing this model, you might ask? Well, objectively speaking, they still have no time to invest in this segment.
All of the resources at the moment are focused toward the development of new Tonale crossover, which is currently seen as the company’s savior. Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2020 is not going to receive any major updates or modifications. Only small details are going to be implemented from a new generation of Alfa models, like the distinctive grille, air vents, and maybe a new trim.
Alfa undoubtedly needs refreshment in this segment. Whether it’s a new generation of Giulietta or a completely new successor, Alfa need to step up their game for one big reason. The hatchback market is very strong worldwide, and it is strongest in Europe. Picture an Alfa hatchback that’s as focused and well-developed as new Giulia. That creation would be an instant success, of course only if the price is not overplayed.
2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider
Here is another one of Alfa Romeo 2020 models which is fairly outdated by automotive standards nowadays. Even though it is an excellent driver’s car, it never really took off. As a matter of fact, it was never meant to be a mass-produced car.
It was more of an exhibition by newly found Alfa Romeo development team at the time. Standard 4C was discontinued recently which means that 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider might be the last of its kind. The biggest change in the 2020 model is going to be an addition of Italia Package, and it is going to be produced in an extra-limited edition of 5000 for the United States market. Italia package which includes Misano Blue Metallic paint will also come with few extra details and emblems, and it will cost you an additional $5,000.
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia
2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia will bring us few minor updates and refreshments, as well as few additional trims. Exterior-wise Giulia will not differ much. Front and rear bumpers might see some polishing. The biggest change, however, is an addition of new LED headlights, as well as possibly redesigned taillights.
When it comes to the interior, Giulia is getting a new infotainment system with an 8.8-inch screen. Center console will be lightly revamped with the reconsidered position of certain elements like handbrake lever.
Lane departure system and fatigue assist, as well as certain other safety systems, will be added to the driver’s assist systems list. Biggest, but still unconfirmed news, is the addition of newly developed hybrid power-train which is supposed to find its way in most of Alfa’s models, but will we see it in 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia, it is still unclear.
2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio
Not many people are familiar with the fact that Stelvio is currently the best selling Alfa Romeo model. 2020 Alfa Romeo Stelvio is going to continue the same trend with an addition of same safety systems found in new Giulia, as well as the refinements listed above in Giulia section. Since two cars share a lot of components, the new facelift will probably cover the same bases as well.
2020 Alfa Romeo Tonale
One of long-awaited Alfa Romeo 2020 models has been revealed earlier this year in Geneva, and it is stunning, to say the least. 2020 Alfa Romeo Tonale concept captured the hearts of many, and Alfa is rushing to put it into production.
We can expect the Tonale production version to be revealed in 2020. Whether it’s going to hit the dealerships the same year, it is still unknown. The production version is not expected to differentiate much from concept, with only an addition of regular rearview mirrors, fog lights, etc.
It has been confirmed that new Tonale is going to share engine configurations with Giulia and Stelvio, as well as already-mentioned hybrid power-train. Since the company’s sale figures have been low, it is seen as Alfa’s savior primarily since the market is thirsty for new crossovers. However, to hit it just right, Alfa has to be careful with price as well as reliability. If they manage to get all the aspects in order, Tonale might just be a huge success.
2020 Alfa Romeo Sprint
There have been a lot of speculations regarding 2020 Alfa Romeo Sprint which would be built on the same platform as Giulia. The production version of this model is supposedly going to be revealed at the end of this year, or beginning of next.
That means that we could see it on the streets late 2020, or early 2021. There is some juicy info regarding 2020 Alfa Romeo Sprint. Sprint is going to share the same engines as the Giulia, most importantly the 510HP Ferrari-derived engine.
To make it even stronger, Alfa is going to pair this engine with ERS, or energy recovery system, which is usually found in Formula 1. This merger is going to result in a combined output of 650HP, which is more than enough to take down the German competitors.
Our list of Alfa Romeo 2020 models sadly ends here. New 8C or even 6C are in the plans, as Sergio Marchionne hinted before he passed, but we will talk about those particular cars in our future articles. Here are a few renderings you can feast your eyes on…
