Exactly ! well put and I 100% agree...The SuV would/could be a big seller. If it's not your taste, then that's okay... the way I see it, anything that makes AR some money increases the chances of them having cash to build a 2-seater coupe based on the Giulietta platform for me..
The thing is, what would they not build by focussing (still limited resources) on developing a new SuV.
I think if Alfa wants to get big, it needs to get into the USA.. To get into the USA it needs the Giulia saloon for sure, and then either a 166 replacement or (dare I say it) an SuV. It seems like they're using the Chrysler 300 platform to go for the 166 replacement with (probably) an SuV to follow around the same time.
Trouble is, they need to get on with it..!
