If we were to give credit to a new report, then Alfa Romeo might be two weeks away from unveiling a brand new SUV of compact dimensions. Quoting information received from an insider, AutoBlogGR states that the Stelvio’s smaller sibling will be presented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. We’ll take this information with the proverbial pinch of salt, as it’s only a rumor. Nonetheless, we reached out to FCA hoping to find out more about it, so depending on what they have to say, we’ll either update this post or come back with a new one. Announced last summer in Alfa’s official road map, this new compact SUV is thought to ride on a smaller version of the Grigio platform, shared with the Giulia and Stelvio.

As a compact SUV, the XT4 joins a quickly expanding segment of entry-level luxury people movers. The industry trend continues with the refrain. It’s in with more utility sport vehicles, out with more sedans. Available in Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport trim, the XT4 comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine with 237 horsepower. It advances with a … [Read more...] about 2019 Cadillac XT4 shines as best new compact SUV
