The new Alfa Romeo 149 was caught in camo. The 149 will be based on the Fiat Bravo platform. That corresponds to a bigger 149 than the 147 it replaces.
The 149 is long, measuring some 4.3 metres, which is not far off the old 156. The range of powerplants will include the new 1.4 T-Jet and M-jet family of engines producing 120BHP/89kW and 265BHP/198kW for the GTA version, which should sport a V6 under the hood. A six-speed manual and automatic will be choice gearboxes for customers.
European pricing will be around ?20 000 for the base model.
