AutoBlog: Rendered Speculation: 2011 Alfa Romeo Giulia... will it be worth the wait?

3 posts in this topic

alfa_giulia_render.jpgMotor Trend has posted its best guess of the Alfa Romeo Giulia (née 159). It isn't a bad looking car, but like a previous speculative take on the car, it look like the Mito nose has simply been pasted on another rear end - in this case, that of the Opel Insignia.

In MT's image, The commanding squarness of the current car, especially set off by the angry nose, have been forsaken for a rising, widening body that still offers a commanding stance aided by a giant set of wheels. We're fans of the convex rear, but the bluff sides of the mockup and the C-pillar's run into the haunches takes us back to the General Motors car.

The Giulia is due to go on sale in Europe in the latter half of 2011, so we probably won't see the real thing until later next year.

It's going to be had to top the 159, and I don't think that'll cut it. The front is just too soft and doesn't match the rest of the car. I'm going to guess that Alfa-Romeo designers have a better vision than Motor Trend.

I like the very distinctive and unique lighting treatment on the 159 and Brera quite a bit...the MT illustration has lighting that looks too ordinary, kind of generic modern.
