Cue2's right. As good as the Giulia and Stelvio are, they're complimentary models - they should be complimenting a base of other higher volume models like a new Giulietta and smaller (and cheaper) SUV. I get that FCA are trying to launch models which turn a good profit, but they'd probably sell a few more of them if they had more than two reasons (ie two models) for punters to go into the showrooms. Actually having a decent amount of showrooms would be a bonus where the UK's concerned too.
I'm afraid that with this pace of model launches at Alfa, coupled with the european economic outlook this decline doesn't look like altering this year.
