Report: Alfa Romeo working on BMW X3 SUV competitor

Alfa Romeo Kamal Concept

Reports suggest that Alfa Romeo is planning a compact SUV that will debut late next year and will compete with the likes of the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK and the Audi Q5.

Known internally as the C-SUV, the compact Alfa Romeo SUV will help the brand reposition itself as luxury competitor in Europe and North America.

The Alfa Romeo C-SUV will be the first new Alfa since last year’s Giulietta (pictured above). It is scheduled to enter production at Fiat’s Mirafiori plant in Turin. It will be produced alongside a new Jeep SUV that will replace the Compass and Patriot.

In 2014, Alfa Romeo also has plans to produce a large SUV based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
