It's poor reliability and very weak customer support that will lead to their demise here in the US.Big lardarsed automatic SUV's ...............the beginning of the end for Alfa Romeo
Hope I am wrong
Porsche have shown the way here. Sell 150,000 Cayennes and Macans a year and you have the money to indulge in endless variations of 911's.Maybe I need to explain myself a wee bit more …..
First up – I accept the popularity of SUV’s and I begrudgingly accept that these “vehicles” do serve a practical purpose (heck, I even suggested one to my lil’ sis and now she adores her 500X). And I accept that from a pure commercial point of view that car companies need to follow the market.
But we are talking about Alfa Romeo here. It’s a brand that I adore. Not only are they releasing this “follow the market” SUV there is talk that they are now concentrating on a smaller SUV (to replace the current Giulietta) and another even larger 7 seater. What I want to know is where is the new Spider, a modern 105 coupé – small, nimble, spirited, unmistakably beautifully designed Italian cars ??…… cars that interest me
The reason I said the beginning of end was a more of a personal thing ….if Alfa end up just being a maker of German clones then it will be dead to me and I fear that my current Alfa will be my last (new) Alfa
