The Alfa Romeo Owners Club brings you marque-related news from the automotive industry.

The presentation of the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA on 2 March attracted tremendous interest among car enthusiasts. In the 110th year of Alfa Romeo, the brand is combining its illustrious heritage with typically Italian style, performance, design and “know-how” to offer Giulia GTA customers a completely customised experience.
 

Alfa Romeo has confirmed that the Giulietta will reach end of life before the end of 2020, replaced indirectly with the new Tonale SUV.

Fabio Migliavacca, Product Marketing Manager for Alfa Romeo, said "Giulietta is expected to finish its life at the end of this year.  The trend is to have SUVs in the C-segment, so the Tonale SUV will be the replacement for Giulietta".

Arnaud Leclerc, Managing Director, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles UK & Ireland, is to be promoted to the position of Head of Alfa Romeo, for Europe, Middle East and Africa. He succeeds Alberto Cavaggioni, who has left the company. Mr Leclerc will continue in his current position as UK MD alongside this new role.

Mr Leclerc will oversee operations for all Alfa Romeo functions within the region and reports directly to Pietro Gorlier, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Chief Operating Officer, EMEA region as well as Tim Kuniskis, Global Head of Alfa Romeo.
