Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, Alfa Romeo’s Quadrifoglio family (Giulia and Stelvio) won’t grace North American roads for the 2025 model year, joining other discontinued nameplates like the Chevy Camaro, Nissan Titan, Ford Escape, Maserati Ghibli, Mitsubishi Mirage, and the formidable Ram 1500 TRX.

However, this absence is temporary, as the Italian automaker accelerates its revitalization efforts. While the Giulia mid-size sedan and Stelvio crossover SUV remain the oldest offerings post-refresh, Alfa Romeo has swiftly introduced several new models, a notable departure from previous stagnation.

The Tonale compact crossover SUV marked Alfa’s venture into hybrid territory with its plug-in hybrid version. Accompanying this was the highly anticipated revival of the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale supercar, awaited by 33 fortunate customers, available in both 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 and all-electric variants.

Yet, none of these reveilings rival the impact of the latest addition: a subcompact crossover SUV, Alfa’s inaugural series-produced EV and a close relative of the Stellantis group’s B-class CUVs. Initially dubbed the Alfa Romeo Milano, this model stirred controversy due to its name’s association with Milan, prompting a swift renaming to Alfa Romeo Junior, evoking the legacy of the 1960s Giulia coupes.

Moreover, this move could redefine Alfa’s aesthetic for the electric age. Previous statements hint at the next Giulia eschewing ICE power in favor of electrification, a direction aligned with recent EV market trends.

Dimas Ramadhan from the Digimods DESIGN channel on YouTube envisions the next Giulia as a hybrid rather than a fully electric saloon. Adapting Alfa Romeo Junior styling to Giulia proportions bridges tradition with innovation, offering a refreshing take on the iconic Type 952.
