2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe Direct Competitor of German Coupes

The arrival of the new generation of the Alfa Romeo Giulia model has attracted a lot of attention. The passions have not settled yet, and Alfa Romeo has announced a new version of this model. It is the 2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia Coupe, which should be launched by the end of 2018.

About this model is speculated for a long time. Finally, “Automotive News” made an estimate of the date of arrival of this vehicle. In their opinion, this will happen before the arrival of the new business limousine of this brand. Namely, Alfa Romeo plans to offer this model. This concept car is conceived as a competitor of the BMW 5 Series and similar models. However, this model will wait until at least 2020.

Competitors

Large sedan models and medium sized sedans, German carmakers, hold the lead in the European market. Of course, there are Mercedes, BMW and Audi companies here. For this reason, Alfa Romeo wants to join the fight for its place on the European market. This Italian brand wants to join the market with German giants, in both of these segments. Hence the need to produce a large business sedan, as well as a coupe version of the new Giulia model.

2019 Alfa Romeo Giulia is conceived as a direct competitor to the BMW 4 Series, the Audi A5 and the Mercedes C-Class Coupe. On the other hand, the new business limousine of this brand will compete with larger German sedans. Alfa’s big business limousine was supposed to be the next project, after launching the new generation of the Giulia model. However, the arrival of the Giulia Coupe version is considered to be a more logical, or more fundamental, move by the company. First of all, the development of such a model is much cheaper than the development of a completely new model. So the new creation will wait a little.
