Can You Buy Alfa Romeo In The U.S.?

You’d be quickly forgiven for thinking that Alfa Romeo was strictly a European-market offering. In fact, for a span of about thirteen years, it actually was. Thankfully, that run ended with the proliferation of a handful of 100 8C Competizione models and then *boom* a myriad of high-profile commercials from 2017 announcing a full-scale return to the U.S. market for the brand.

Alfa Romeo’s U.S. re-emergence comes in conjunction with its previous built-in success in markets like France, Germany, UK, China, and, (where else?) Italy.

But, now another word regarding those 2017 commercials.

One of these started, intriguingly, with “Dear predictable,” before its female narrator breaks up with the type of monotony associated with the everyday driving experience; she ends by opting for (what else?) the powerful, elusive qualities of the Alfa Romeo Giulia instead.

And really, why wouldn’t she?

As a world-class sport sedan that’s been designed to excite, the Alfa Romeo Giulia represents the brand’s return to its roots. There’s even a Nero (or black) Edizione for those mesmerized by a darker sense of style. For SUV enthusiasts, there’s the incomparable Stelvio.
