Spy Shots: 2010 Alfa Romeo Milano

With Fiat now allied with Chrysler, fans of affordable Italian sheetmetal are pining for the first examples to be offered on American soil in over a decade. One of the first of the cars to make the Fiat-Chrysler transition will be the 2010 Alfa Romeo Milano, which could be re-made into a Chrysler sedan for U.S. consumption.

The Alfa Romeo version of the car isn't expected to make its official debut until the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but a set of spy shots captured by MotorAuthority's snoops gives us a peek at what's in store.

The photos don't reveal much in the way of the folds of its body, but with the Alfa penchant for clean exterior design, don't expect it to venture far afield from the themes laid out by the 8C and MiTo, two solid examples of Alfa's current-generation design language.

The new Milano is should also share Fiat’s C-Evo platform with the Lancia Delta and Alfa Romeo Bravo, contrary to earlier reports that the car would get an all-new platform. As for engines, the same core range is expected, including a smallish 120 hp four-cylinder and ranging up to a 3.2-liter V-6 good for 265 hp. A high-performance GTA variant could add some more spice to the lineup down the track as well.

It's not yet known if Fiat has any plans to sell the Milano alongside its Chrysler sibling, and if so, what that might mean for sales or market positioning.

  1. Should be interesting to see what type of design language Fiat gives Chrysler. Currently, Chrysler seems to lack any theme throughout the line up as the 300C and the Sebring look nothing alike. One can only hope Fiat turns Chrysler around.

  2. Is there any way to build this with a Plymouth badge, now?

  3. Marty - that's a good one. Let's hope Fiat revives the DeSoto name as well. I seem to recall that the DeSoto was the Oldsmobile of the Xler lineup.

  5. In all likelihood Alfa products will retain their brand in the US - maybe it'll be the Fiat line-up that will be re-branded for America.
    I also think the rear door handles on the Milano are fake - like the 147 it replaces, the Milano will look like a 2-door coupe with the rear door handles hidden.
