Alfa Romeo’s resurgence plan is set to continue with a two-door variant of the Giulia sedan, set to arrive in 2018. While we’ve known for some time now that additional variants of the sedan were planned, given this is FCA, timing has been unknown.
This is one of those future product cases in which many of the details are known thanks to common sense, but the name is the biggest wildcard. Automotive News reports the two-door version of the car will likely carry a new nameplate, versus simply being called “Giulia Coupe.” Such naming convention seems to correlate with Alfa’s typical moves; every model/variant tends to have its own name.
Regardless of the badge on the back, the car is expected to be a two-door Giulia from a design perspective. This also means the car’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and hot twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V-6 engines will carryover as well.
Multiple reports seem to point to the car launching sometime in 2018, likely as a 2019 model. Alfa’s original plans called for the coupe to be sold in North America.
The coupe is being made possible due to the new Giorgio platform that underpins the Giulia. The Giorgio is capable of spawning just about any variant, including a convertible, should Alfa so choose to offer one.
