The third generation Alfa Romeo Giulietta arrived as a 5-door hatchback at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010 and received a facelift at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September last year. Going by current lifecycles, the fourth generation Giulietta is due by 2018.
So, while it can be logically assumed that the all-new Giulietta is currently unlikely to be in a development stage where a company begins road testing, a mysterious test mule of the compact hatchback has been spied by Facebook user Luigi Marano putting all logical thoughts to confusion.
The test mule seen here (featured image) appears to look the same as the current model. The third-gen model was facelifted last year only, the possibility of another mild refresh before the next-gen model arrives shouldn’t be ruled out.
Alfa Romeo’s future product plan announced in May last year showed that two new compact models will be launched between 2016 and 2018. The next-gen model is expected to feature the brand’s new design language that was introduced with the Giulia saloon‘s revival last month.
