  1. Just one "Italian" model, super 😂

    On the other hand, I'm beginning to find it completely ridiculous that I still don't know whether there'll be a next Giulietta. Considering that with Stellantis, all you have to do is quickly modify a 308 and paint it red, it wouldn't be a huge investment...

  2. Hopefully, the Lancia Gamma and Delta will be just as welcome as the Giulietta.....
    A sudden awareness has been perceived at Stellantis?
    Meanwhile, all Peugeot/Citroën products will be renewed at least twice....
    Organized slowness ........

  3. Maybe they're beginning to realize that that's not enough, that an Alfa is first and foremost a rear-wheel drive car, with at least a 2l 200hp four-cylinder engine (cuckoo BMW Serie 1 traction and its 1.5l at almost 40,000 euros entry-level) and an elegant, sporty but tasteful design. Quite different: I saw the interior of the new Lancia Ypsilon, the premium city car. Overall, the styling is interesting (not a fan of the little SALA tower), but the gaps between the doors and the dashboard are unbelievable at this price...
