As we have said before, this vehicle is made upon the Georgio platform. This means it will borrow many features from other members who were born from this platform.
One among them is the adoption of headlights from Giulia. But this Alfa is only a two-door car, unlike the Giulia. Other things that the new Alfa Romeo GTV has borrowed from their cousins are in the internals. Will will talk about that in the next part.
Inside the Romeo GTV
To make it short, the Romeo GTV will adopt a lot from Giulia and Alfa Romeo Tonal Concept. This two-door car will still be able to transport four passengers when taken for a journey. So that it won’t be thrown out of the competition from Audi A5 and BMW 4 Series and the Mercedez C-class Coupe, all with a 4 door-4 passenger car.
Inside the touch screen infotainment system, which we said from where it will be borrowed, Romeo GTV is expected to include the same or even better infotainment features and driver-assistance technology used by the current Alfa cars. The touch screen infotainment system is also expected to support Android Auto and Apple Carplay. Other features may include cruise control and also automated emergency braking system.
Under the Hood
Seeing that the Romeo GTV has been borrowing a lot from its cousins, it’s almost certain that Alfa is determined to play it safe while keeping the offering good. Yup, if you guessed it, you are right. Romeo GTV is expected to use the same engine’s architecture as Giulia and the same powertrain.
A 280-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will power the base model of GTV. The interesting part will be with the Quadrofolio variant. Just as the Giulia Quadrofolio dethroning BMW M3 with its amazing performance, Alfa wants history to repeat with the M4 being thrown out by their Romeo GTV.
A V6 twin-turbo 2.9-liter engine is expected to power the Quadrofolio variant. Combined with the Electric motor, this Hybrid Beast can output a maximum power of 505hp. Meaning that it could reach a speed of 62 miles per hour in just 3.9 seconds. The electric motor in the Hybrid engine alone is expected to drive the vehicle up to 30 miles. It is expected that all the variants will be powered by a hybrid engine, where the difference will be mainly of the overall power output they could provide.
The new Romeo GTV is expected to be a little more expensive than it’s cousin Giulia. What are all your thoughts regarding this blend of beauty and beast? Do let us know your thoughts.
