Since Fiats purchase of Chrysler LLC about one year ago they have been trying to strategize how to integrate Fiats products with Chrysler’s products.

First was the Fiat 500 which has been on sale for about 12 months in the coupe version and about 3 months for the convertible.  Next, comes Alfa Romeo, Fiats premium brand, which we see several current and new products sold in the States.

One of those is the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.  A car that has been on sale in Europe for quite some time.  As seen here in the spy shots, it appears as though it is preparing for its US launch.  What we know so far is that Fiat wants to bring Alfa Romeo back to the US by rolling out several products at a time over the next 3 years or so.

The rumored first product will be the Alfa Romeo 4C which just debuted as a concept earlier this year.  Next comes the Giulietta, that we see here.  In Euro-spec, the Giulietta comes with two viable engine choices for the US market.  First is a 1.4L Multiair producing roughly 170hp.  This is said to be the same engine that will appear in the Fiat 500 Abarth first.  The second option would be the more potent 1.7L Multiair producing 235hp.

The Giuliettas intended competition will be somewhere a long the lines of the Volvo C30, Audi A3, and Volkswagen GTI.

Based on these spy shots the Giulietta looks virtually identical to the Euro-Spec model that is currently on sale.  That means a 5-door hatchback that is roughly the same size as a 5-door Ford Focus.  Fiat is shooting for a late 2012, early 2013 launch for the Giulietta and expect more information as that time draws nearer.
