alfa romeo gloria 2

The Alfa Romeo Gloria concept, which we showed you earlier, will preview the new Alfa Romeo Giulia, according to an Automotive News Europe report. More photos of the sleek sedan have also surfaced ahead of its Geneva debut next month.

Scheduled for a 2015 launch in the US, Europe and Asia, the Giulia will be available in sedan and wagon bodystyles. The report adds that the Alfa Romeo 159 replacement is a crucial part of Fiat-Chrysler boss Sergio Marchionne‘s plan to push Alfa’s sales to 300,000 units by 2016.

If the Giulia’s dimensions stay faithful to the Gloria concept’s 4.7 metre length, 1.92 metre width, 1.32 metre height and 2.9 metre wheelbase, then it will have the longest wheelbase among cars developed on Fiat-Chrysler’s compact wide architecture.

The Alfa Romeo Gloria concept was jointly developed with 20 students from Turin’s European Design Institute (IED). They were asked to design a sedan that would appeal to American and Asian customers.
