the 2017 Alfa Romeo SUV supports FIAT 500L body panels which
have been heavily modified to suit the requirements of a SUV.

and triangular central grill. There will be additional air
intakes in the front to keep the engine cool. Headlights will
be more powerful as the will use latest LED technology.

vehicle seems to have a high roof and bigger and more robust
platform. It means it will have larger interior space to
accommodate more passengers and luggage. The boots are also
going to be more practical and capacious as compared to the
Maserati Levante. The elegant blackish trim is expected to
provide a comfortable and romantic atmosphere to the
passengers. The SUV will have leather covered seats to ensure
