Alfa Romeo Giulia is the most important upcoming model for the company in decades, as the brand's revival depends heavily on the global midsize rear-wheel drive sedan.

“Alfa Romeo is the hardest design challenge we face. There is a lot of expectation, so what we do has to be remarkable but stand the test of time,” Ramaciotti was quoted as saying by Autocar.

One reason why it doesn't have a firm release yet is because of internal dispute regarding its styling. The Giulia's debut has already been deferred several times already.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia will use the most powerful engines from the Giulietta and possibly the 237-hp (240PS) turbocharged 4-cylinder unit from the 4C sports car.
