Alfa Romeo eyes new Giulietta as key "brand pillar" - LeftLaneNews (at http://www.leftlanenews.com/alfa-romeo-eyes-new-giulietta-as-key-brand-pillar-99418.html ) I've seen this article a few times over the last couple days on a few sites. I'm curious, why FCA is dragging their feet so much? MB and AUDI seem to believe this segment is profitable, which is why they have new or revised entries coming. This model is popular in Europe and would do well as a standout for a model in the US if it just has 3 key elements--sexy, sporty, and performance. They have the CUSW platform to leapfrog development, AWD, 2.0T (tuned for different applications), 9AT, etc. So what am I missing that could make a relatively inexpensive model a money maker?? 2020 is a long way off and there are plenty who will move on before then if they are left with nothing to consider from this company.
