Alfa Romeo working on a successor for the 166 that will arrive in 2015

Article by Christian A., on April 2, 2013

Alfa Romeo is reported to be developing the successor for the Alfa Romeo 166 that’s set to arrive in 2015. It’s believed that this Italian E-segment model will be built on Maserati underpinnings and will be competing with the BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Last year, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne said that the automaker is focused on developing replacements for the Mito, Giulietta and 159 but it appears that it also now has a project to create a new premium sedan.

This will be Alfa's version of the Maserati Ghibli that’s set to arrive this April. It will probably be powered by the V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine (with an output of around 385 hp or 287 kW) and the V8 3.8-liter twin-turbo (which can generate about 480 hp or 358 kW). It’s believed that the two cars will be available with a diesel engine – likely to be a V6 3.0-liter used on the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Chrysler 300. The Alfa Romeo model is set to get an all-wheel drive variant just like what the Ghibli had.
