The Americans had almost forgotten Fiats’ attractive brand the Alfa Romeo but the memories were ignited with the return of the 8C Competizione after a lingering gap of 14 years. Fiat now believes that Alfa Romeo could stage a full-fledged return to the US as it has a number of models which will be globally appreciated specially in the US. The brand will return to the US in the next 24 months with offering like the 159 replacement christened Giulia which adorns two forms- a middle segment sedan and a station wagon. Americans could also see an Alfa Romeo 166 replacement based on the Chrysler 300. Another touted model is the MiTo as a number of them have already been spotted in Detroit.
There wasn’t much known about the scheduled release of the Hyundai Equus in the US until a couple of weeks back, but today we learned that Hyundai has now officially confirmed the luxurious Equus sedan for a 2010 debut in the US. The sedan will be launched with a new christening especially for States and it will compete with the likes of Lexus, BMW and Mercedes. As per Hyundai’s American president and CEO, John Krafcik, the response for the car has been great ever since it was revealed at the New York Auto Show which is comparable to the response Genesis (the award winning sedan) first got from the experts and the dealers across the country.
