New spy pictures of the Alfa Romeo Milano have emerged, again showing the car in the factory where it is being produced.
The Alfa Milano will be unveiled at next year's Geneva motor show, and will use the same C-Evo platform as the upcoming 157 replacement, the Giulia.
The Milano's platform is a shorter version of the chassis destined for the Giulia.
One of the most striking aspects of the car’s front end is the lack of ornamentation; it has no chrome edging on the mesh air intakes, as seen on the Mito. And in traditional Alfa style, the number plate is offset to the left of the shield grille.
At the rear the Milano uses a light arrangement reminiscent of the 159 saloon’s for a more mature look than the Mito’s circular rear lights. The shape of the rear window provides a link between the Milano and the 147.
The Milano will be available as a five-door only, leaving the Mito to fill the role of the small three-door Alfa Romeo. The Milano will revive the concealed rear door handle of the 156 to give the car the appearance of a three-door, however.
The car’s dimensions will be very similar to those of the Fiat Bravo. At around 4350mm long, 1800mm wide and 1430mm high, it’s slightly shorter, wider and lower than the Fiat, but it has a longer wheelbase to help maintain interior space.
Inside there’s an all-new design language for the car’s dash and fascia, with a sweeping one-piece coloured insert dominating the view. Although the position of the controls gives away the Fiat Bravo architecture that sits behind the fascia, Alfa seems to have convincingly disguised the Milano’s origins.
