A report states that an E-segment saloon is coming from the Italian marque.
It's no secret that Alfa Romeo is in dire need of new models to stay afloat. With the Giulia and Stelvio soldiering on for the brand, and with the Giulietta and 4C on their way out, the Italian brand needs new models to compete with the domination of the Germans in the luxury vehicle segment.
While the Alfa Romeo Tonale compact crossover (leaked below) is allegedly debuting in September of this year, a report from Motor.es discusses another ace up new Alfa CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato's sleeve: an E-segment competing saloon to rival the BMW 5 Series.

The Spanish automotive site seems privy to the matter, stating that the executive saloon will arrive in 2025 and is currently in the design phase. They shared, however, an exclusive rendering to anticipate the arrival of the sporty saloon, which will sit atop the Giulia in Alfa Romeo's lineup. You may view the stunning, albeit unofficial, rendering atop this page.
Motor.es also shared some details about the upcoming saloon, such as its usage of the billion-dollar Giorgio platform. It will also arrive in petrol, plug-in hybrid, and electric flavours. But as always, sprinkle some salt on this rumour – at least until Alfa Romeo gives us official updates.
What we know, however, is that Alfa Romeo, DS, and Lancia are jointly developing a new generation of cars that will be launched in 2024. The collaboration was born with the Stellantis merger, with the three automakers sharing powertrain and technologies that won't be available for the other brands under Stellantis.
Should the Germans be worried about their dominance in the luxury vehicle segment? Only time will tell, but seeing how gorgeous an E-segment Alfa Romeo saloon is based on the unofficial rendering, we won't be surprised if the market will be stirred.
