Oh yes, allegedly a sportwagon version of the Alfa Romeo Giulia is coming soon. At least a photo that sure looks like the boot of a Giulia sportwagon was posted on social media, validating rumors that Alfa was planning a sportwagon variant of its hot new sedan.
What we can tell from the photo is that the design language follows closely to the sedan and, frankly, the Stelvio SUV. The dual exhaust outlets and overall shape are very Alfa, while inside showcases a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. Factoring in those folding seats, the Giulia is supposed to carry class-leading cargo space, which should greatly enhance its competitiveness.
We can certainly expect the Giulia’s 2.0-liter tubrocharged four-cylinder to be one of the various engine options on the sportwagon, but it isn’t yet known if the 505 horsepower Quadrifoglio variant will carryover to the wagon – we’re going to guess yes.
Unfortunately the most recent reports suggest the Giulia sportwagon will not find its way to North America, instead satisfying European tastes exclusively. Given we’re talking about FCA, those plans are probably always subject to change, but it’s disappointing news to say the least.
Alfa Romeo is expected to reveal the latest variant of the Giulia at next year’s Geneva Motor Show.
